Is one of the CW’s DC shows on its way out? While none of us can claim to be in charge of the programming over there, it does look the show is on its last legs, ratings-wise. I’m talking about DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, which is a time-hopping show that follows a bunch of superhero misfits, including the likes of Firestorm and White Canary.
Sadly, Legends of Tomorrow seems to be living up to its misfit premise in a case of art imitating life. According to TV By the Numbers, the series’ fourth season premiere wasn’t just the lowest it’s been in its history, but the lowest show that night in primetime — including Spanish language programming. The figure being thrown around by TV Nielsen Ratings, is 1.0 million viewers.
For comparison, last year’s first episode premiere hit 1.7 million viewers, and the lowest point it had hit yet was also in Season 3, with its 13th episode, “No Country for Old Dads,” which hit 1.19 million viewers.
And the truly sad note is that premieres are often one of the higher points of a season, so if we can expect things to go down from here, it could be dipping below the 1.0 million viewer mark as early as next week. So if you’re a fan of that show, you may want to get to watching it next week, or you may find it canceled before you can say Luke Cage or Iron Fist.
