Through the first two hours of the crossover, we saw Supergirl and Arrow draw in total a 0.9 rating in the 18-49 demographic to go along with over 2.5 million viewers per each episode. These are both substantial week to week improvements on recent standalone episodes, and we wish that some of these viewers would stick around.
Unfortunately, that is not going to happen. By and large what we’ve seen from these superhero crossovers is this: The ratings go big for a week and then also decline not too long after that. People watch a crossover to see all of the heroes together but aren’t necessarily interested in the show on its own. That’s a shame, but it is what it is.
We’ll see tonight whether or not the remainder of the crossover surges in the ratings!
As for some other ratings news…
Let’s start here with The Good Doctor, which held steady at a 1.8 rating in the demo. While its numbers have fallen slightly since the start of the season, you have to remember here that this was the first episode that didn’t air following Dancing with the Stars. The fact that it kept almost all of its viewers, no matter the demo, is pretty promising and says a lot about the future of this show.
Now, let’s move over to Scorpion season 4. We don’t exactly think that the show generating a 0.9 rating in the demo is great news, but at least the show has remained solid for most of the season since it premiered. Its big issue is mostly just airing opposite a ratings machine like The Good Doctor. It’s off next week while the Freddie Highmore series airs its final episode of the year; we’ll see if it can boost its numbers at all during the time in which it’s off the air. It does need to do something to get things going in the right direction, mostly because of the fact that for now, Scorpion remains firmly on the bubble.
