The Flash hit a season high in ratings with its fifth episode, pulling in a 1.5 and 3.73 million viewers in the Live ratings. There was growth almost across the board in Tuesday night's scripted shows, though, as the baseball playoffs came to an end, no longer affecting live viewing.
Fellow CW comic book show based on a DC (Vertigo, though) comic iZombie saw the same rating as last week, holding that point that raised off of a few weeks of stellar reviews, and saw an increase in total viewers. That didn't hamper Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., though, which airs at the same time, and also held steady its ratings share.
The Muppets likewise held its 1.4 rating, and sort-of-genre show Limitless, which recently got a full season order, ticked up a tenth of a point.
