How did “Legends of Today” do in the ratings?
The initial overnight ratings are in, and have the show at 3.86 million viewers and a 1.4/5 in the demo. The show beat both FOX and ABC in its timeslot, and perhaps more impressively, it had higher numbers in total ratings AND the demo than Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. which aired at 9.
The ratings will probably go up even more later today, and certainly once DVR is factored in.
Let’s hope these numbers continue for Arrow which airs tonight and feels like a continuation of the same story begun last night. You can see photos from Part 2 of the crossover, “Legends of Yesterday,” here.
