The Flash is the highest-rated CW premiere since 2009


The CW and the Flash camp must be really happy right now. The Flash, the series about a superhero who can travel at super speed, has debuted on The CW with 4.5 million viewers, according to the preliminary Fast National Nielsen data. These are impressive numbers for the network, since the last time a CW premiere did that well was in 2009. (That honor goes to The Vampire Diaries.)

How did The Flash compare to other shows on the same night? It’s the second top show for adults 18-34 and it’s the top show for men of that age range.

Even though The Flash debuted big, it couldn’t beat NCIS‘ 17.08 million viewers on CBS or The Voice‘s 15.34 million viewers on NBC. NCIS: New Orleans received 15.34 million viewers. The Flash did beat out ABC’s Selfie second episode that received 3.92 million viewers. How did Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. do? It got 4.39 million viewers.

We’ll see how Arrow does when it premieres the third season tonight on the CW.

Check out the latest preview for the Flash’s “Fastest Man Alive” episode. It will air October 14th at 8pm.
