‘Arrow’ misses its ratings mark

Oliver Queen may have returned to Starling City, but he failed to bring some of the audience with him.

Last night’s Season 2 premiere of The CW’s Arrow attracted 2.68 million viewers (a 0.9 in 18-49, 0.8 in 18-34), a 33-percent drop from the drama’s record-setting opening in October 2012, but on par with May’s finale. The new sci-fi series The Tomorrow People followed at 9 p.m. with 2.34 million viewers, down about 20 percent from Supernatural‘s ratings in that time slot last year.

On a somewhat positive note, Entertainment Weekly points out that Wednesday was an off night for television, with just about every show experiencing a ratings dip.
