FLASH Ratings Hold Steady For RUPTURE


Though Barry Allen may have lost his speed, it seems as though The Flash series is managing to find its footing again.

After a sizable drop coming off of two multi-week hiatuses, rating have climbed back above 3 million viewers per week, hitting 3.33 million for Tuesday’s episode, “Rupture”.

The Flash also had its ratings among the key 18-49 demographic adjusted up to a 1.3 share, making it the third-ranked show in its time-slot behind CBS’ NCIS and NBC’s The Voice.

Rupture also out-performed the latest episode of ABC’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., which garnered 2.92 million viewers on a much larger network.

Fans should expect a significant ratings bounce next week for Kevin Smith’s directorial debut on the show in “The Runaway Dinosaur”, particularly with the announcement that showrunners Greg Berlanti and Andrew Kreisberg were so pleased with his work that he will be returning to the series in Season 3.
