Last season, The Flash became The CW’s highest-rated TV show. How will it perform in season two? Will the ratings soar higher or will they fall? Could this superhero series burn out and be cancelled or is it sure to be renewed for a third season? Stay tuned.
Based on the DC Comics series, The Flash revolves around a young police scientist who’s struck by lightning in a freak accident. He awakens from a nine month coma to find that he has super speed and decides to use his abilities as a masked hero. The show stars Grant Gustin, Candice Patton, Danielle Panabaker, Carlos Valdes, Tom Cavanagh, Jesse L. Martin, and Keiynan Lonsdale.
The ratings are typically the best indication of a show’s likelihood of staying on the air. The higher the ratings (particularly the 18-49 demo), the better the chances for survival.

Ratings marked with an “*” are the fast affiliate ratings and will be updated with the Live+SD numbers when they are made available. Typically, networks get paid for C+3 ratings which includes DVR viewing within three days of the original airing when commercials are watched. Those numbers are rarely released to the press.
