The Flash “Trajectory” Overnight Ratings Report

Overnight ratings report for the Flash episode “Trajectory”



Flash Trajectory

Perhaps affirming that breaks within the broadcast TV season hurt ratings more than they help, The Flash had season lows for last night’s episode “Trajectory.”

Flash TrajectoryThe show had 3 million viewers and a 1.1/4 in the demo. The show still beat FOX’s New Girl and Grandfathered in total viewers and also beat ABC’s The Real O’Neals in the Ages 18-49 demographic.

Sadly, breaks are a necessary evil when you have 23 episodes to spread over a period of eight months. If The CW were to film an entire season before airing, and air everything back-to-back, there would be over half a year between seasons, and that might be even worse. And — hey — The Flash is still The CW’s #1 show at the end of the day.

If you’d like to talk about “Trajectory,” come by our Flash forum!

Up next: The Flash appears on Supergirl on Monday — and then, “Flash Back!”

    The break explains the drop to a degree. But this is a huge dip (around 800.000 viewers) and it represents The Flash least viewed episode by far. In my opinion, the lack of promotion played a bigger role than the hiatus itself. Trajectory has hardly been mentioned this week as everyone on the show has been plugging the crossover with Supergirl. You would be forgiven for not knowing The Flash was airing a new episode this week.

    No. The low ratings is due to The Flash not having any promotions until day of. Super girl which I do not watch was promoted too much…

    The ratings look to me like they are actually up, because I’ve seen past ratings and this to me looks higher; but then I don’t understand the TV rating system. I thought this episode was enjoyable in a sense and it showed a real father/daughter conversation between Wells and his daughter which was something I didn’t necessarily think I’d see in this episode. But I enjoyed it for what it was. Although the stuff the didn’t stick out for me to much was Wally’s brief cameo in the beginning, it did feel a little unnecessarily, but it made sense in a way. The thing however with Iris and her boss was weird, that kinda didn’t need to happen, but maybe it set something up for her for the rest of the season, I don’t know. Iris’s boss is someone I haven’t really liked to well for him trying to show certain people for who they are in a dark way which I didn’t like. But now that I know why he does it and is changing things around it bit, I actually don’t mind him now cause what he explained earlier about why he tries to expose people in that way makes sense. The story with Trajectory was interesting, although it does remind me off normal people from Spiderman and the Amazing Spiderman where Norman Osborn and Dr. Connors both heard things in their head and turned them into something their not which is exactly what happened with Caitlin’s colleague and that is something that we haven’t quite seen in the flash before. For me though it’s interesting in a way for them to put it into a show instead of another Spiderman movie. Her character though was a bit loony, but it worked enough for me. I don’t know if I liked her or not though, but at least we got to see someone that Caitlin became friends with at Mercury labs and learned what they were once working on. I guess I am glad that the team finally knows who Zoom is, but maybe they could have waited a bit loner. But maybe its a good thing that showed that now because they will be working on a way to bring him down or somehow get back to earth 2. I can see a few ways this could go in order for them to stop him, but then again I can very easily be wrong. Another thing I didn’t quite like was when Well’s daughter left a message and left for a city that I can’t say I’ve heard of in this universe. I wish things could have left off a little better between them. But it does make sense. And the last thing I liked is that they finally showed Barry working on getting faster as they have been talking about it for a little while now and now they’re actually starting to do it, which is a bigger step in a way for the show. It’ll be interesting to see how he increases his speed for the rest of this season. Overall I would give this episode a little more above average, but not amazaing. Bring on the next!

No, That Was Not Teddy Sears In The Flash Movie

Flash TV series actor Teddy Sears confirms that was not him playing Jay Garrick in The Flash movie.



SPOILER WARNING: The Warner Bros. Pictures film The Flash is being discussed in this post.

The Flash is currently speeding onto movie screens, and considering the box office, it might be speeding out of theaters just as fast, but there is one particular thing that fans of The Flash TV series have been wondering: Did we see a cameo of Teddy Sears as Jay Garrick in The Flash movie?

The answer is: No. TVLine did their due diligence in finding out from Sears himself what is going on.

“People kept telling me that I was in the new Flash movie…,” Sears told TVLine in an article posted on their website. “I mean, I’m sleep-deprived with a newborn at home, so my memory is a little foggy. But I’m pretty sure I would have remembered shooting a major DC Studios film.”

“Sadly, I’m not in this,” he continued. He did acknowledge that the likeness does look like him.

There are some other cameos – sadly, not Grant Gustin or John Wesley Shipp, either. The movie is currently playing in theaters worldwide. As for Teddy Sears? Look for him in the DC Animated feature Justice League: Warworld where he will voice Travis Morgan, a.k.a. The Warlord. That comes out in July.

Who Are Those New Characters At The End Of The Flash Finale?

FlashTVNews can tell you who played the new characters who were introduced at the end of the Flash finale.



The Flash has ended on the East Coast, and now you might be wondering who those characters might be as part of the “New World” Barry is talking about. He’s shared the lightning beyond his family, and now new speedsters will be out there in the world.

One of those new folks we met before: Avery Ho. In the comics, Avery is the Flash of China, and she first appeared in the comics in 2016. On the show, though, we saw her in the Season 8 episode “Obsessive Impulsive Disorder” as someone working at Fast Track Labs; she returned for a phone call with Meena Dhawan in “The Man in the Yellow Tie.” Playing her was actress Piper Curda who fans might know from I Didn’t Do It and Legacies.

Next up: Max Mercury. A character from comics’ Golden Age who went by a number of names back in the day, Mark Waid brought him back for his celebrated and excellent Flash comics run of the 1990s. Trevor Carroll plays Max Mercury in the Flash finale. In addition to acting, Trevor Carroll is an award-winning director for a short film called No Reservations. He could also recently be seen on Resident Alien.

The third new “Flash” type character we see here is Jess Chambers, introduced in DC’s “Future State” initiative and also seen in the Multiverse: Teen Justice comic book series. Sometimes using the name “Kid Quick,” Jess is a non-binary character. The role of Jess Chambers here is played by Hana Destiny Huggins, who just might be the “Hana Huggins” that IMDb has a listing for whose credits include an upcoming film called It’s A Wonderful Knife.

Shall we ever see these characters again in live-action? We certainly hope there is someday an opportunity to see them ride the lightning….
