Flash: Ratings For “The Man In The Yellow Suit”

Ratings details about the Flash episode The Man in the Yellow Suit



FLA109b_300bThe initial overnight ratings for the Flash midseason finale are in, and they’re pretty amazing for The CW, beating ABC and nearly beating FOX last night.

The episode had 4.54 million viewers and a 1.5/5 in the Ages 18-49 demo. Chances are good that the final numbers will go up even more once DVR and time-shifted viewing are factored in.

UPDATE: They did go up! 4.66 million viewers for the final overnights. Even higher once other numbers come in! The Flash is a hit for The CW!

Here’s a press release from The CW with more details:

Big Tuesday night for THE FLASH and SUPERNATURAL on The CW…

Coming off of last week’s huge crossover episode, THE FLASH midseason finale actually rose 4% week to week in total viewers (4.54M) for its most watched episode since its series premiere, and dipped just slightly in A18-34 (1.2/5) and A18-49 (1.5/5).

And last night’s midseason finale of SUPERNATURAL was the series’ most watched episode (2.81M) in more than four years, going back to 10/15/10, and up +21% versus last week.

SUPERNATURAL also had its best M18-34 rating in more than four years (1.3/5, back to 10/22/10), up +44% from last week, and hit a season high in M18-49 (1.2/4), up +20% week to week, its best since 2/3/13. SUPERNATURAL matched its season high in A18-49 (1.1/3), up +22% from last week, and was up +25% week to week in A18-34 (1.0/4).

THE FLASH outrated ABC in total viewers and A18-34 and A18-49 in the hour.

SUPERNATURAL tied for #3 in the hour in A18-34 and matched NBC at #4 in A18-49.

It was The CW’s most watched Tuesday night (3.67M) since THE FLASH premiered on 10/7 and held even with last week in A18-34 (1.1/4) and in A18-49 (1.3/4).

The CW tied with NBC as #2 for the night (8-10) in A18-34.

New CW Head Throws Shade At The Flash

New CW President Brad Schwartz has thrown shade at The Flash while propping up another series.



New CW Entertainment President Brad Schwartz today threw some shade at The Flash when propping up one of The CW’s better new performers, Wild Cards, when doing an interview with Deadline.

“You’ll probably be hearing more announcements from us very soon,” he said. “That show did great. It grew 10% versus what The Flash did in the same spot the year before. So, here we are beating shows that everyone’s very romantic about. We’d very much like to renew that one.”

Obviously, this is to show that Canadian imports perform better than more expensive fare… but might it be considered that The Flash was a show in its ninth season – a time when new audiences might not be interested in jumping on to series? Or, perhaps that portions of The Flash fandom had moved on, with no interest in The Cecile Show? Finally, The Flash Season 9 mostly aired at a time where producers and/or cast were unable to promote it, during the 2023 strikes, which makes the comparison very unfair.

Wild Cards is a fun series, but there’s no reason to denigrate The Flash or the superhero shows that made The CW great. Hopefully this was just a wild misunderstanding of his quote. The fact of the matter is: Sometimes more expensive fare is worth investing in. Especially considering how Schwartz hypes up the new season of Superman & Lois, that should be known to the new people in charge of The CW.

Flash Cast Member Returns for the Superman & Lois Finale

A major actor from The Flash will be playing a role in the series finale of Superman & Lois.



A major cast member from The Flash will be appearing in the series finale of Superman & Lois.

No, it’s not Grant Gustin, sadly… the actor in question is Tom Cavanagh, the actor who brought us infinite Wells variants. Cavanagh revealed this recently at a convention, where he talked about how he usually enjoyed directing season finales for the show, but was unable to in this case because Gregory Smith had already signed on to direct the Superman & Lois finale.

Superman & Lois showrunner Todd Helbing, who had also worked with Cavanagh before on The Flash and recruited him to direct the series’ 100th episode among others, instead suggested he has a role in the finale.

No word yet on what that role might be. As Superman & Lois is at a different spot in the multiverse, it doesn’t necessarily even have to be a version of Harrison Wells or Eobard Thawne. It could serve as a good closer, though, to the Arrowverse in general, as Superman & Lois is the last gasp for that world on The CW. In any event, you can see video of Cavanagh speaking about this (and more) at our Superman & Lois portal, KryptonSite.

The final season of Superman & Lois premieres this Fall on The CW.

Flash Missing: Vanishes In Crisis, April 25, 2024

The “Flash Missing: Vanishes in Crisis” headline in the Flash TV series pilot was dated April 25, 2024.



While events of the series would ultimately speed up the timeline, Flash fans surely remember the final moments of the pilot episode of the Grant Gustin-led series where we see a Central City Citizen newspaper graphic announcing “Flash Missing, Vanishes In Crisis.” The date of that article? April 25, 2024.

Which happens to be… today.

When The Flash premiered in 2014, one might have expected that April 25, 2024 might be the right time for the final episode of a 10-year run… of course, as we saw, the Crisis happened a few years earlier, The Flash ended in 2023 instead, and it all might have been a good thing, considering how strikes and pandemics got in the show’s way. Still, it’s fun to think about, and it’s fun to remember that fantastic rush we had after the end of watching such an excellent premiere. And hey – not only did we get nine seasons of the show, but we also had a bad Flash movie that the series was far superior to, even in its worst moments. Win-win!

Ride the lightning, everyone.
