Barry Allen Gives ARROW A Ratings Boost, Show Climbs To Season High

Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) joining Arrow (Stephen Amell) on The CW's superhero drama has given the show a ratings boost. With 3.2 million viewers, "The Scientist" was the most watched episode this season.

The key executive personnel at The CW/ DC Entertainment have previously said that Grant Gustin (Glee) needs to impress as Barry Allen in his guest spot on Arrow for the network to finalize a spin-off for The Flash. Well, it certainly helps your pilot when your guest spot results in a ratings bump and season high in viewership. "The Scientist" garnered 3.2 million viewers and commanded a 1.1 rating among adults 18-49 (Arrow averaged 2.8 million viewers across the previous 7 episodes). That makes it the most watched episode of the season. Things are looking pretty good for that spinoff.

The CW Arrow season 2


"After a violent shipwreck, billionaire playboy Oliver Queen was missing and presumed dead for five years before being discovered alive on a remote island in the Pacific. When he returns home to Starling City, his devoted mother Moira, much-beloved sister Thea, and best friend Tommy welcome him home, but they sense Oliver has been changed by his ordeal on the island. While Oliver hides the truth about the man he’s become, he desperately wants to make amends for the actions he took as the boy he was. Most particularly, he seeks reconciliation with his former girlfriend, Laurel Lance. As Oliver reconnects with those closest to him, he secretly creates the persona of Arrow – a vigilante – to right the wrongs of his family, fight the ills of society, and restore Starling City to its former glory. By day, Oliver plays the role of a wealthy, carefree and careless philanderer he used to be – flanked by his devoted chauffeur/bodyguard, John Diggle – while carefully concealing the secret identity he turns to under cover of darkness. However, Laurel’s father, Detective Quentin Lance, is determined to arrest the vigilante operating in his city. Meanwhile, Oliver’s own mother, Moira, knows much more about the deadly shipwreck than she has let on – and is more ruthless than he could ever imagine."
