The Flash and Legends of Tomorrow, along with most shows on network TV, greatly suffered in the ratings last week, going up against the World Series and the celebration of Halloween. Fortunately, The CW's superhero efforts were able to bounce back in a major way last night.
During the 8 p.m. slot, The Flash managed to grab 2.31 million viewers and scored a 0.9 rating in the 18 to 49 demo, up 29 percent from last week's dismal outing. The impressive showing was followed by Legends of Tomorrow (1.53 mil/0.5), which was up by 25 percent.
The final round of knockouts gave The Voice (9.4 mil/1.9) solid numbers for NBC. This Is Us (9.8 mil/2.5) quickly trampled those ratings, winning the demo for the night. The penultimate episode of Law & Order True Crime: The Menendez Murders (4.1 mil/0.9) managed to post a 29 percent rise in the final hour of the evening.
Over on CBS, NCIS (13.3 mil/1.5) rose 25 percent to win the overall audience for the night. Bull (10.7 mil/1.2) and NCIS: New Orleans (9.1 mil/1.0) both also saw significant bumps.
ABC's comedy lineup showed a solid performance, with The Middle (5.6 mil/1.3), Fresh Off the Boat (3.7 mil/1.0), black-ish (3.8 mil/1.1), The Mayor (2.7/0.8) and Kevin (Probably) Saves the World (2.9 mil/0.7) each rising slightly in the demo.
After a week off, thanks to the World Series, Lethal Weapon (4 mil/1.0) was up a tenth. The Mick (2.1 mil/0.7) was down a bit while Brooklyn Nine-Nine (1.5 mil/0.6) stayed steady.
