Despite the fact magic came to The Flash in the form of villain Abra Kadabra and the Legion of Doom rewrote reality on Legends of Tomorrow, both shows saw a small dip in the ratings. In fact, The Flash hit yet another new audience low, but only just. As for Legends? The show tied its lowest demo rating but was still above its low in terms of number of viewers. These numbers reflect a continuing downward trend The DCTV CW shows have seen this season.
On the heels of its special musical episode featuring Supergirl, it’s no real surprise that The Flash ended up down from last week. Overall, the show drew in a total of 2.39 million viewers and a 0.9 demo rating.
On the other hand, Legends of Tomorrow moved into its precursor to the season finale and thrust its characters into an alternate reality. Even though this premise sounded like it would captivate viewers, viewership was down from last week as well. The show earned 1.6 million viewers and a 0.5 demo rating.
With Legends of Tomorrow airing its season finale next Tuesday and The Flash off until Tuesday, April 25, we’ll see if Legends can bring in the viewers and if The Flash‘s break gives audiences a second wind.
The Flash returns Tuesday, April 25 as Barry travels into the future in “The Once and Future Flash,” and airs on Tuesdays at 8:00 pm on The CW
Legends of Tomorrow continues next week with its season two finale, “Aruba,” and airs on Tuesdays at 9:00 pm ET on The CW.
