“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,”” said CW president Mark Pedowitz. “I’m proud of the quality of “Arrow” and I’m happy we’ll be able to share more of it with viewers.”

The series premiered to 4 million viewers and a 1.3 rating in 18-49 demographic; the best ratings The CW has had since “Nikita.”
