‘Flash’/’Supergirl’ Musical Crossover Receives Minor Ratings Boost

Grant Gustin The Flash

Last night Supergirl and The Flash reunited for a musical crossover event that forced both heroes to re-examine their respective relationships through song and dance. Though a sizable portion of the fanbase for both shows was looking forward to the musical event, it appears the episode did not receive the ratings boost the CW might have hoped for.

TVByTheNumbers reports that the episode received a slight bump in viewership with an audience total of 2.65 million. Though these numbers surpass 2.39 million viewer total of The Flash‘s previous episode, it held even with the last week’s 0.9 rating in adults 18-49.

DC’s Legends of Tomorrow earned 1.76 million viewers and rose from last week’s 0.5 demo number to a 0.6 rating.
