Pre-season critical darling Nashville bowed to a 2.8 adults 18-49 rating and NBCs Chicago Fire drew a 1.9 adults 18-49 rating in its premiere.  Arrow's premiere on the CW drew a 1.3 adults 18-49 rating. The full ratings post is now up here.

    Based on a few recaps and reviews I read Supernatural was a disaster last night(I haven’t watched the episode yet). I’ve heard its Careless Sam and Soulless Dean on Supernatural. I wonder, if Dean has turned into a monster in purgatory, I mean literally.

    Purgatory is not even a bit amazing. It’s not scary at all and not even 1% of what I have expected. This is based on first episode.

    Arrow did a 1.3 not 1.1.

  • jt

    Wow, not really the best #s for Nashville. Could be in low 2’s in the next coming weeks.

  • knox

    Arrow did very well but Chicago Fire is on the bubble right now based on the premiere ratings. On the bright side, it helps Parenthood’s chances of renewal even better.”

    LOL parenthood fans you suck, why do you always wish other shows doom and gloom to get cancelled. The sow isnt even half as god a it was 2 years ago

    – No evoking the Gunsmoke Rule.

    – It’s a new show. You gotta give it time. Remember what happened last year with Ringer? Only time will tell if it will rise to TVD levels or be the next Ringer.

    mark berman saids Arrow’s half-hour 18-49 breakdown 1.3/1.3 .
    which one is correct?? I’m quiet confused.

  • Oliver

    Arrow reportedly got 1.3 in W18-34.

  • joss

    oh no nakaed fireman

  • CrimTV


    Arrow is said to have a 1.3 on Entertainment Weekly but on TVBTN and Spoilertv it says 1.1?

  • David

    if it held a 1.3 for both halves, that’s great!

  • Bernard

    Spoiler and here are wrong… Arrow at 1.3 beat Animal Practice in 18-49. It did a 1.1. in 18-34. Perhaps that’s where the mistake is coming from.

    As of now I don’t see any difference between season 7 and 8. Last season it was killing leviathans and now it was killing Demons. Except they found the tablet in 20th episode last season and they found it in 2nd episode now. I wish story would go any different from what we have seen in the past.

    Writers anyway has slayed the heart of the show – Brotherly love. At least give us a good myth-arc at least.

    Dear Carver, is this what you meant by “Mature Sam and Dean” in the Comic con? HILARIOUS!!

  • Scarlett

    Marc Berman and EW are reporting 1.3 for Arrow and 1.0 for Supernatural so now I’m confused? Hope they’re right, that would be best results for SPN for nearly 2 years!

  • Other Than That Mrs. Lincoln How Was The Play?

    What will Arrow do? Just go around shooting people with arrows?

    He should toss aside ridiculous arrow and get an M107 .50 Caliber Long Range Sniper Rifle.

    I guess Nashville is this year’s Friday Night Lights. The nets think they are giving middle America what they want even though the show is probably staffed with writers who know nothing about the country music world.

    UPDATE: ARROW was indeed a 1.3 A18-49 rating, fixed/apologies

  • Lisa

    I forgot that Arrow was on, but the pilot is being rerun on Friday. IMO, Chicago Fire really sucked. Starting out with a 1.9 is not promising, either. I want to see how Nashville develops, so I hope it can hang in there for a good while.

  • Andrea

    The CW must be pleased with those numbers for Arrow, espically since everything else has done so horribly.

    I didn’t tune in to Nashville last night since I watched it online earlier, next will be interesting to see where it goes in terms of ratings.

  • CrimTV

    YES 1.3 SO HAPPY!

  • jaz

    can we now get the full ratings
