Arrow debuted its final season with mixed results. Meanwhile, CBS had a good night with FBI up and the NCISes steady. Here’s a look at the Oct. 15 TV ratings.

It was a mixed night for the networks on Oct. 15. All networks saw at least one TV show dip in both metrics in the TV ratings, but some dips were bigger than others. Here’s a look at how the likes of Arrow, FBI, and New Amsterdam performed.

It’s not surprising to hear that This Is Us stole the night in terms of the demo. The NBC feel-good series lost 9% of its rating, but pulled in a 1.5, beating The Voice‘s 1.3 (a 7% drop) and NCIS‘ 1.1 (a 2% drop). The total audience for This Is Us sat at 6.71 million, losing 7.5% and sadly not enough to take over the CBS shows.

NCIS was the show to win the night in the total audience, with its 10.61 million viewers. It was a 5% drop, but enough to consider being steady for the CBS drama. The network continued the success with FBI, which was steady in the audience with 8.71 million viewers. The demo was up a healthy 11% to 0.9.

NCIS: New Orleans also held steady in the audience, with 6.62 million viewers. It ticked up almost 3% in the demo to 0.7. While the total audience won the timeslot, it was New Amsterdam that won that timeslot in the demo.

New Amsterdam held steady in the demo with a 0.8 rating. Its total audience was down by 5% to 4.98 million, putting it in second in the timeslot. There’s nothing to worry about here just yet.

Most of ABC’s shows remained steady or saw small losses. The largest loss in the demo was against black-ish, which dropped 11% to a 0.6 rating. That rating continued to fall into the 10 p.m. timeslot. Emergence lost 2% of its demo. It also lost 13% of its total audience, dropping to 2.7 million.

This wasn’t the largest audience loss for ABC. mixed-ish lost 18% of its audience, falling to 2.8 million.

FOX had a steady night, while The CW lost in both the audience and demo for The Flash, and by a relatively large amount. Its demo dropped 16% to 0.5 and the total audience dropped 21% to 1.28 million. The show remains The CW’s best performer, though, so unless the stars want to leave, I doubt there’s anything to worry about just yet.

Arrow debuted its final season but it wasn’t on the high it possibly hoped for with so many returning characters. Compared to its Season 7 premiere, the ratings were down by 33% in the demo and 39% in the total audience.

When you compare the 0.3 rating and 0.87 million viewers to the Arrow Season 7 finale, this is where things get mixed. The total audience was down by 8.5%, but the demo rose by 25%.

Not only does Arrow not have anything to worry about because it’s the final season, but The CW doesn’t look at the Live + Same Day ratings as much as other networks. The network benefits from streaming deals, international deals, and the CW App.
