FLASH Ratings Hit All-Time Low With “Trajectory”

After reaching a season high in February with “Escape From Earth-2”, things have been trending downward for The Flash .

After a hiatus of nearly a month, the series returned on Tuesday with “Trajectory”, which marked a season-low in viewership at 3.0 million viewers in its time slot.

Beyond being the lowest numbers of season 2, the 3.0 million number mark the lowest-ever viewership for The Flash since the inception of the show. The previous low-water mark was in January with “Potential Energy.”

A number of factors likely contributed to the series declining number this week, including the three-week hiatus, the end of Spring Break for students, and the NCAA March Madness tournament all competed for viewers’ time.

The Flash remained CW’s highest rated show of the night, and should see its numbers bolstered by next week’s cameo appearance on CBS’ Supergirl.
