Viewership and ratings for Arrow‘s midseason finale took an expected dip from the outstanding performance of the 100th episode during last week’s crossover event.
In the overnights, the ninth episode of the show’s fifth season garnered 1.94 million viewers and 0.7/3 share in the Adult 18-49 ratings.
While that seems like a significant down-tick, this is about on-par with ratings for the show in the couple of weeks leading into the crossover. As always, final numbers should grow when the DVR and additional factors are added in.
Arrow is expected back on January 25, 2017. What with the big reveals in Wednesday’s fall/winter capper, excitement should build over the next 7 weeks.
