FLASH Ratings Slip for “Escape from Earth-2”

It’s been a bit of a roller-coaster ride for CW’s The Flash in February, as ratings crested to an all-time high last week, but came back to Earth a bit with the conclusion of the Earth-2 story arc.

After gathering in 3.96 million viewers for the first installment of Team Flash’s visit to an alternate reality (and likely buoyed by news of an impending crossover with CBS’ Supergirl), viewership slipped slightly to 3.87 million viewers for this week.

This is by no means a sign of trouble for the show, which remains The CW network’s top-rated program among the coveted 18-49 demographic. Ratings may have also taken a slight hit among fans who weren’t sure if a new episode was airing this week, as several shows went to reruns following Monday night’s Grammy broadcast on CBS.

For context, you can find the complete season ratings listed below.


Episode 1: “The Man Who Saved Central City” – 3.58 million

Episode 2: “Flash of Two Worlds” – 3.49 million

Episode 3: “Family of Rogues” – 3.47 million

Episode 4: “The Fury of Firestorm” – 3.43 million

Episode 5: “The Darkness and the Light” – 3.87 million

Episode 6: “Enter Zoom” – 3.63 million

Episode 7: “Gorille Warfare” – 3.46 million

Episode 8: “Legends of Today” – 3.94 million

Episode 9: “Running to a Standstill” – 3.55 million

Episode 10: “Potential Energy” – 3.41 million

Episode 11: “The Reverse-Flash Returns” – 3.71 million

Episode 12: “Fast Lane” – 3.66 million

Episode 13: “Welcome to Earth-2” – 3.96 million

Episode 14: “Escape from Earth-2” – 3.87 million
