“The Flash Reborn” Overnight Ratings Report

Overnight ratings report for The Flash season premiere “The Flash Reborn”

Published

on

The Flash may have been reborn, but his overnight ratings don’t seem to be… yet.

The series had a 1.0/4 in the Ages 18-49 demo for the season premiere “The Flash Reborn” on October 10 with a total of 2.8 million viewers according to the overnight ratings; those numbers can and will go up. On the bright side, that demo number is still better than, say, Marvel’s Inhumans on ABC… and the show did beat Lethal Weapon in the same time slot in the demo. On the down side, it’s lower than where The Flash usually is, especially for a season premiere.

Hopefully once people get used to the show being back the numbers will go back up. Next week’s episode is very good and worth watching live. And, of course, the final numbers for the season premiere can and will go up once streaming and DVR are factored in.

    I’ll take a 1.0 in today’s environment, especially if it doesn’t drop in the final numbers.

    I’ll put it this way; I’ll watch all the episodes of this show again. But this episode I will not watch again. It was nice to see Iris have a different role and see how the team was managing without Barry. But I strongly feel that A: The could have brought Barry back a little later in the season B: The whole thing with Barry in his crazy phase and how he just quickly snapped out of it after learning Iris was kidnapped C That Tracy wasn’t still part of the team and D: I was wondering how is is the Star Labs still functioning right now? I think it would have been better if the Samuroid was a new Meta perhaps instead of it being a robot. Although it did lead to a good reveal of The Thinker. But also it would have been nice to see how Wally was dealing with taking up in Barry’s absence more than just one episode. Needless to say, there could have been much more better things done with this episode. Hopefully they can explain some more later in this season, I was quite disappointed with this new episode.

      Yep! I just said the same. Barry came back too soon and it’s costly with many fans. That gun Cisco had should have been used, deemed unsuccessful, and passed the suit over to Wally. I also feel that Barry got a new suit too soon, let alone how crappy it was for them to introduce it. The scenes of Barry losing it should have been saved for the next season. You want to give us such an awesome teaser but give us reason y’know? I’m questioning why, as I mentioned before Wally is there and he looks pretty awesome in the suit might I add. As for Samuroid, he could have played a much more prominent role than just one episode and yet do I still question how he’d even known that Wally donned the suit? I was pretty lost there. Like you was I disappointed and also like you will I give it a shot, but I also noticed that while Wally fought him and the stab was a follow up. .what happened to his healing factor?

    As I told a few of my other friends. Barry came back too soon which resulted in other characters completely lacking spotlight with an example being Wally. Right now I haven’t a clue at this point why they’ve introduced a legendary speedster and we barely see anything with him, let alone donning the suit for the first time which to me was also a means of trolling us fans. But, when you that is it paid for hence the ratings. I could have done without Gustin for this entire season to be honest and not at all is it due to criticizing his skill set with acting! It’s preferred that we have more Wally. Yep. The show is called the Flash. We get it. But Wally too, was the Flash.

Report: The Flash Temporarily Pauses Production

Deadline is reporting that The Flash has temporarily paused production due to a positive COVID-19 test.

Published

Deadline is reporting that The Flash production in Vancouver has temporarily paused after someone working on the series has tested positive for COVID-19. Here’s what they had to say about what has happened:

“The asymptomatic diagnosis was confirmed through the rigorous testing protocols implemented by The Flash studio Warner Bros. TV for all of its production employees. Out of an abundance of caution, production on The Flash has been temporarily suspended and contact tracing has been initiated. According to sources, the studio is currently evaluating adjustments to the production schedule in order to resume filming without the affected employee and potential close contacts, who are self-isolating.”

The Deadline piece also noted that The Flash isn’t the only show to shut down production for this reason. Each series that has returned to production has implemented strong safety protocols which involve their casts and crews frequently testing. It is our hope that this team member remains asymptomatic and that everyone stays safe and healthy on The Flash and every other production that has resumed.

The Flash Season 7 is scheduled to premiere February 23 on The CW.

Flash Season 7 Premiere Date Revealed

The CW has revealed a premiere date for The Flash Season 7.

Published

on

We finally have a date for the return of The Flash as The CW has announced a February 23 return for the Scarlet Speedster!

This may seem a bit late, but look at it this way: We’ll have fewer repeats and the show will be paired with the series premiere of Superman & Lois starring Tyler Hoechlin and Elizabeth Tulloch as that other superhero/journalist wife team!

As The Flash Season 7 begins, the show will wrap up the Season 6 storylines that were so rudely interrupted by COVID before taking the Scarlet Speedster (Grant Gustin) on to new journeys.

You can find the full list of CW premiere dates here.

Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) lived a normal life as a perpetually tardy C.S.I. in the Central City Police Department. Barry’s life changed forever when the S.T.A.R. Labs Particle Accelerator exploded, creating a dark-matter lightning storm that struck Barry, bestowing him with super- speed and making him the fastest man alive — The Flash.

After a thrilling cliffhanger last season which saw the new Mirror Master (Efrat Dor) victorious and still-at-large in Central City, The Flash must regroup in order to stop her and find a way to make contact with his missing wife, Iris West-Allen (Candice Patton). With help from the rest of Team Flash, which includes superheroes Caitlin Snow (Danielle Panabaker), Cisco Ramon (Carlos Valdes) and Nash Wells (Tom Cavanagh), as well as the Flash’s adoptive father Joe West (Jesse L. Martin), Meta-Attorney Cecile Horton (Danielle Nicolet), tough cub reporter Allegra Garcia (Kayla Compton) and brilliant tech-nerd Chester P. Runk (Brandon McKnight)… Flash will ultimately defeat Mirror Master. But in doing so, he’ll also unleash an even more powerful and devastating threat on Central City: one that threatens to tear his team—and his marriage—apart.

Based on the characters from DC, THE FLASH is from Bonanza Productions Inc. in association with Berlanti Productions and Warner Bros. Television, with executive producers Greg Berlanti (“Arrow,” “Supergirl,” “Riverdale”), Eric Wallace (“Teen Wolf,” “Eureka”) and Sarah Schechter (“Arrow,” “Supergirl,” “Riverdale”).

Blu-ray Review: The Flash: The Complete Sixth Season

Review of The Flash Season 6 Blu-ray set from Warner Bros. Home Entertainment

Published

on

The Flash: The Complete Sixth Season is now available on Blu-ray, DVD, and Digital from Warner Bros. Home Entertainment, and we have been provided with a copy of the set to review on the site!

The set features all 19 episodes of The Flash Season 6 plus extras — the Blu-ray includes all of the Crisis on Infinite Earths crossover!

Here’s what’s up:

Packaging & Design: Starting with this because it’s probably the first thing you’ll notice. The box art for this set has changed since the original press release — the fired Hartley Sawyer’s Ralph Dibny is no longer on the packaging. While I understand the show distancing themselves — Ralph was indeed an important part of Season 6, with his Sue Dearbon story, and I’m not 100% sure how I think they should have handled it. As it is, it looks odd with just the other four members of Team Flash on it. Though, to be fair, Nash Wells isn’t on the cover either.

With that said, The Flash sets usually have some of the best designed packaging and menu art and this set is no exception.

The Episodes: Also seems I am repeating myself but the Blu-ray presentation on The Flash is loads better than what we see on TV and is pretty cinematic. All 19 episodes of Season 6 are here, and — spoiler warning — because of COVID-19, they were cut off at 19 episodes, so that means some storylines aren’t completely wrapped. With that said, this season saw Eric Wallace taking over as showrunner, and with him came a new tactic that he referred to as “graphic novels.” The first “graphic novel” included the character Bloodwork (Sendhil Ramamurthy) as characters are facing death, and the second, after Crisis, dealt with a new “Mirror Master.”

I will say that The Flash under Eric Wallace has a great vision and I love his enthusiasm, which you can actually hear on the “Kiss Kiss Breach Breach” commentary. He’s as big of a geek as we are, and I mean that in the absolute best way. The only thing I’d have to say negative about Season 6 is that the mirror storyline has gone on way too long — and I wonder, if they had known all along that we’d end with 19 episodes (an impossibility, because who would?), it might have been a bit shorter.

This “graphic novel” set-up, however, does offer the chance to binge the season in parts, which is pretty cool, and the Blu-ray bonus disc of all of Crisis on Infinite Earths is a good thing to throw in the middle to tee up Graphic Novel #2.

The other thing I will say about Season 6 is that I really liked some of the new characters that are set up. Chester P. Runk, Sue Dearbon, Kamilla, and Allegra — all fun characters that add to rather than detract from the series.

The Extras: The set includes a bonus black and white noir version of “Kiss Kiss Breach Breach” with commentary by Eric Wallace. Commentaries don’t happen too often these days, so I’m so glad they put something on this set. There is also a gag reel and deleted scenes. And, of course, all of Crisis which has a lot of great Flash content!

Is It Worth It? If you’re a Flash completist or want to see the most recent season in high definition, sure. You might want to start at the very beginning, though. Still, I think The Flash is on its way back to its former glory and Season 6 is the start of that journey. Can’t wait for Season 7, and for now, this set will be revisited often.
