Ratings: ‘Arrow’ Series Finale Falls 21% in Viewers

ABC’s ”Emergence“ season finale doesn’t emerge from anything

The CW fired off its final “Arrow” on Tuesday, when the series finale actually dropped 21% in total viewers from last week. It stayed steady in the key demo.

Moving back from 8 o’clock to 9 p.m. probably didn’t help. The “Arrow” finale’s lead-in was an “Arrow” retrospective special.
