If it weren’t for Smallville, it’d seem almost unbelievable that a show like Arrow not only exists on CW, but is also something of a hit. We’ll have to wait and see how taking a week off, and the nation’s collective turkey withdrawal, will affect the ratings, but the number of week-to-week viewers has slowly but surely climbed since the pilot, which pulled in a big audience from the get-go. The numbers are all relative to CW’s lesser station in the overall television hierarchy, but where other superhero shows failed on the big networks (Heroes fans dropped like flies after the second season premiere, and No Ordinary Family never caught on to begin with), CW seems to be the only safe place for a live action comic book adaptation.

Not that they haven’t had their fair share of failures though, and you can look »
