It will bow Tuesday, January 15 in the 9/8c slot. Former time-period occupant, Black Lightning will make a move to Mondays out of Arrow effective January 21. 

This move also means that DC's Legends of Tomorrow will be bumped from the schedule following its fall finale until April.

The Monday move might spell good news for Black Lightning which has experienced the dreaded sophomore slump in the ratings department this year. 

Black Lightning Season 2 is off over 30 percent in the demo year-to-year and is averaging a 0.4 rating.

The CW Quotes

Archie: Ronnie, when I first met you … you were it for me. Everything I could ever wanted. I saw our whole future.
Veronica: Because we’re endgame, Archie.
Archie: I hope you know how much I love you.
Veronica: If you loved me, you would come home.
Archie: God, Ronnie, you know in your heart that I’m right about this. It just hurts to admit it.
Veronica: Don’t you make me say goodbye, Archie Andrews, because I don’t wanna hear it back. I can’t. I can’t.
[She drops the phone, cries, and Kevin consoles her]

Veronica: What the hell is a "Sticky Maple"?
Kevin: It's kinda what it sounds like. It's a Riverdale thing.
Veronica: No, Kevin, it's a slut-shaming thing. And I'm neither a slut nor am I going to be shamed by someone named, excuse me, Chuck Clayton! Does he really think he can get away with this? Does he not know who I am?! I will cut the brakes on his supped-up phallic symbol.
