FLASH Ratings Continue to Climb with “Runaway Dinosaur”


The Flash may not be the runaway success it was last season, but the ratings Kevin Smith’s directorial debut on “Runaway Dinosaur” have brought it within striking distance.

After a late-season ratings lull brought on by multiple hiatuses within just a few weeks of each other, a steady climb was added to with Tuesday’s installment, which saw 3.48 million viewers tune in for what Smith called the “spiritual heir” to the first season finale.

The increase brings The Flash within 100,000 viewers of its season premiere numbers and marks a six-episode high point. While the series still hasn’t recaptured much of the viewership which tuned out during the breaks, the upward trend has to be encouraging for CW and the producers.
