Update: The final numbers adjusted The Flash up from initial estimates, putting it at a 1.4 rating in key demographics. That gives it its second ratings victory in a row over Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

Original: Tie goes to the runner? The Flash found itself in a draw this week, hitting a 1.3 rating with 3.34 million total viewers. That tied it ratings wise with Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. (though the latter took in 3.57 million total viewers), keeping the shows fairly even despite the larger draw built-in with a network like ABC over The CW.

Interestingly, that 1.3 is actually not great news for The Flash, as it's a .2 drop from last week, with a drop of about 250,000 viewers. A .1 drop was seen by iZombie, another DC Comics show on The CW that follows their hit. Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., meanwhile, maintained its ratings and viewership.

The Muppets likewise maintained, holding the line at a 1.2 with 3.9 million viewers, essentially identical in both metrics from the week before.
