TV Ratings: Arrow Hits Non-Crossover Season High With Green Arrow & The Canaries Pilot

at .

The ratings are in, and The CW will probably be giving the green light to Green Arrow & The Canaries, a prospective spinoff of Arrow. 

It aired as Arrow Season 8 Episode 9, and featured Mia Queen, Laurel Lance, and Dinah Draek fighting crime in Star City circa 2040. 

Mia, Laurel, & Dinah - Arrow Season 8 Episode 9

The milestone episode delivered 921,000 total viewers and a 0.3 rating in the adults 18-49 demographic. 

That was Arrow's highest total viewer tally of the season. The CW has already renewed 13 series for next season and ordered a Walker, Texas Ranger reboot, as well as Superman & Lois. 

Would you watch the spinoff if it scores a series order?

Sara - DC's Legends of Tomorrow Season 5 Episode 1

DC's Legends of Tomorrow Season 5 Episode 1 followed with 721,000 viewers and a 0.2 rating, coming in well short of last season's average (950,000/0.3 rating) and finale (1.05 million/0.3 rating). 

This marked series lows in both metrics for LOT. The ratings are no concern because the series has already been renewed for a sixth season. 

NCIS was steady as a rock with 11.2 million viewers and a 1.0 rating, while FBI inched up a tenth to 9.2 million total viewers and a 0.9 rating, but new spinoff FBI: Most Wanted came down a tenth to 6.6 million viewers and a 0.7 rating. 

Escorted Out - Tall  - The Resident Season 3 Episode 13

The Resident continued on a steady note for FOX with 4 million viewers and a 0.7 rating, while 24 Hours to Hell and Back delivered 2.1 million viewers and a 0.6 rating. 

NBC's This Is Us and New Amsterdam each lost a tenth from their most recent originals, while Ellen's Game of Games held steady. 

NBC does have a solid night of programming on Tuesdays, and This Is Us, and New Amsterdam have already scored multi-season renewals. 

OH NOOOO! - The Conners Season 2 Episode 11

The Conners (5.4 million/1.0 rating) returned from a six-week break down a tick, but Bless This Mess (3.3 million/0.6 rating) was steady. 

mixed-ish was down two-tenths to a series low 2.4 million viewers and a 0.5 rating. black-ish followed with 2.2 million viewers and a 0.5 rating. 

Emergence, however, was steady at series lows, with 2 million viewers and a 0.3 rating for its penultimate episode. Don't expect this show to be back for next season.
