Unfortunately, after experiencing a ratings increase last week, the latest episode of the CW series was down in both viewer numbers and the 18-49 demo.
TVByTheNumbers reports that the Arrow episode was down a tenth in the demo rating with a 0.5 score. Audience numbers also dipped, with the latest episode drawing in 1.45 million viewers compared to last week’s 1.64 million total.
Arrow continues next week with the season finale titled “Lian Yu””.
