Last night, Arrow debuted its part of The CW’s annual crossover special. The 100th episode “Invasion!” saw Oliver Queen wake up in a very different world from the one he has always lived in. After a run-in with the Dominators, the vigilante is sent to a reality where he never boarded The Queen’s Gambit and his family was all alive and well. The emotional episode featured an impressive performance from star Stephen Amell, and plenty of fans tuned into watch it.
In a report by Deadline, the site has confirmed Arrow hit a season-high rating last night of 1.3/5. The episode drew in 86% more viewers ages 18-49 than it did on November 16. The episode was a tenth down from last year’s superhero crossover special, but its viewership was still impressive. More than 3.52 million people watched the episode.
This week has been a good one for The CW in terms of ratings. The Invasion! crossover has persuaded millions of fans to watch the four-way miniseries. The event kicked off Monday with Supergirl, and its episode “Medusa” scored a rating of 1.1 with viewers ages 18-49. The Flash also raked in similar numbers on Tuesday when its episode premiered.
Tonight, the Invasion! crossover will come to a close when DC’s Legends of Tomorrow debuts its installment. If you want to read the synopsis for the episode, then you can read it below:
