TORONTO, Oct. 25, 2012 /CNW/ - ARROW was a direct hit with Canadians last night as a series-high 1.8 million
viewers tuned in to an all-new episode on CTV, up 27% versus its
previous series high (1.4 million viewers). ARROW now becomes the #1 new series of the season for A18-34, M25-54, and
F18-34, the #2 new program for A18-49 and A25-54, and the #3 new series
overall with total viewers. Last night's milestone follows on the heels
of a full season order, as announced earlier this week by The CW.
Shot in Vancouver, ARROW did especially well in Western Canada last night, ranking as the #1
program of the night in Calgary and Edmonton, and winning the night
with key male demos (M18-34, M18-49, M25-54) in Vancouver.
