The initial overnight ratings for Arrow were quite good in total viewers but not as great as the show has been in total demos.
“Blind Spot” had 2.46 million viewers and a 0.8/2 in the target demographic. It was still a bit higher than CW Wednesday companion The Tomorrow People, which is moving to Mondays later this year, and it did at least tie with The Crazy Ones repeat on CBS in the demo.
UPDATE: The final ratings are in, and Arrow adjusted up to a 0.9/2 in the 18-49 demo and 2.49 million viewers. That actually put Arrow ahead of CBS between 8-8:30, as far as the demographic goes.
