Last week’s Arrow ratings hit an all-time series low, but fortunately the latest episode experienced an increase in viewers for the grand reveal of the villain Prometheus’ identity. TVLine reports that the numbers for last night’s episode were up in both viewer numbers and the demo rating.
TVLine reports that the episode drew in 1.6 million viewers, up from last week’s total of 1.54 million. The episode demo rating was 0.6, up from the previous week’s 0.5 rating.
