Some more solid overnight ratings numbers for the Flash pilot are in, via TV By The Numbers.
The Flash opened to a 1.8 rating in Adults 18-49, the best for a CW series premiere since The Vampire Diaries. That’s even better than the Arrow premiere two years ago! In total viewers, that’s 4.5 million who tuned in to The Flash series premiere!
The Flash beat ABC and FOX in the time period. DC beat Marvel last night, too, with higher numbers than Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D..
The CW has got to be happy right now! The Flash pilot will be re-airing tonight after the Arrow premiere, which features a guest appearance by Grant Gustin as Barry Allen.
