Being the 100th episode and part of the “Invasion!” crossover certainly helped Arrow last night.
The show ended up with its highest ratings in a year — landing a 1.3/5 in the Ages 18-49 demo and 3.52 million viewers.
This is very, very good.
Don’t forget Part 4 of the crossover airs TONIGHT as part of DC’s Legends of Tomorrow!
As for what’s coming up for Arrow next… here are some hints.
UPDATE: The CW has issued a press release touting last night’s ratings!
