It has been a rough few weeks for The CW’s Arrow as the superhero show has experienced a streak of low numbers, with last week’s episode hitting a new series low. However, after weeks of declining viewers, the latest episode earned a slight ratings bump in viewer totals while holding steady in demographic numbers.
TVLine reports that the latest episode of Arrow earned a total of 1.6 million viewers, an improvement over the previous episodes 1.38 viewer total, while holding steady with last week’s 0.5 demo rating.
Arrow is currently on hiatus and will return with new episodes on April 26 starting with “Dangerous Liaisons“.
Newly appointed Mayor Oliver Queen finds himself challenged as he fights on two fronts for the future of Star City. With Diggle back in the military and Thea adamant about hanging up her hood as Speedy, Team Green Arrow is down to just Oliver and Felicity – but they’re no longer the only vigilantes in town. Green Arrow’s public defeat of Damien Darhk at the end of Season Four has inspired a new crop of masked heroes to step up and defend the city, though their painful inexperience makes them obstacles, rather than allies, in the field. The arrival of a deadly new adversary will force Oliver to confront questions about his own legacy, both as mayor and as the Green Arrow.
Arrow airs on Wednesday at 8:00 pm ET on The CW. Be sure to check back with Heroic Hollywood after each episode for weekly reviews!
