It looks like TV’s
Green Arrow has a few fans, with more than a few suits from the CW among them. The action drama about the (possibly emerald) archer has earned the network its highest ratings in 3 years. The series premiere scored 4.1 million viewers and the second episode carried 3.5 million viewers, making it the only new network drama this season to hold its ratings with adults 18-49 and 18-34 from the previous week.
“Our strategy of rolling out our new fall schedule later in the year really paid off for The CW on several levels, especially with Arrow, CW president Mark Pedowitz said. “I’m proud of the quality of ‘Arrow’ and I’m happy we’ll be able to share more of it with viewers.”
So what does this mean? More Arrow! The network ordered the back nine of the show, which stars Stephen Amell as the titular arrow slinging vigilante, making for a grand total of 22 episodes for its freshman year.
Maybe now they can afford to buy the poor guy a few more shirts. Seriously, two episodes in and he’s half naked most of the time and that warehouse looks so cold.
