Last season, Arrow became The CW's most-watched show (surpassing The Vampire Diaries) but it was down year-to-year. Will it continue to be a top show? Will the ratings rise or fall? Could it be cancelled or is it a lock for a season four renewal? Stay tuned.
On Arrow, vigilante Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) works with a former military man (David Ramsey), a computer science expert (Emily Bett Rickards), and a reformed street criminal (Colton Haynes) to fight injustice in Starling City. The series also stars Katie Cassidy, John Barrowman, Paul Blackthorne, and Willa Holland.
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. This chart will be updated as new ratings data becomes available -- typically the following morning, around 11:30am »
Sneak Peek footage from the next episode of The CW's "Arrow", titled "Uprising", written by Beth Schwartz, Brian Ford Sullivan and directed by Jesse Warn, airing February 4, 2015, with guest star Vinnie Jones:
"...'Malcolm' (John Barrowman) makes an offer to help 'Team Arrow', still operating without 'Oliver' (Stephen Amell) and desperate to stop 'Brick' (Jones). Team Arrow is forced to consider Malcolm's offer to help shut Brick down as Malcolm has a personal score to settle with the felon.
"'Roy' (Colton Haynes) and 'Laurel' (Katie Cassidy) point out that the team could use some help to save the innocents of 'The Glades', but 'Felicity' (Emily Bett Rickards) is adamantly against it. They look to 'Diggle' to make the final decision.
"Meanwhile, the flashbacks chronicle Malcolm’s descent from kind-hearted father and husband to cold-blooded killer after the murder of his wife..."

Last week it was reported that Glee and Whiplash actress Melissa Benoist had been cast as the lead in Greg Berlanti’s (Arrow, The Flash) and Ali Adler’s (The New Normal, Chuck) Supergirl TV show that is coming to CBS. Now, we have even more casting news to report, as CBS and Warner Bros. TV have announced that True Blood’s Mehcad Brooks has been cast as James Olsen. To Superman fans, they will recognize him as Jimmy Olsen, although based on the reports: it seems that he will mostly be referred to by his full name, James. On the show, James is a photographer at CatCo (Cat Grant’s company) where Kara (Benoist) works as well. He has been working and living in National City recently; however, the reason is being kept as a secret. In addition, James is being aimed as a love interest for Kara. In addition to True Blood, »

Glee and Whiplash actress Melissa Benoist will be playing her, and the next casting major addition to the pilot has now been made. That will be Desperate Housewives and True Blood star Mehcad Brooks as Jimmy Olsen, The Daily Planet photographer who is best friends with Clark Kent and a keen admirer of Superman.
That’s the comic book version of the character however, and the Supergirl one is described as a “smart, worldly photographer for CatCo, the media company where Kara works. He has recently been living and working in National City, though the reason is still a secret, and his salt-of-the-earth nature quickly piques Kara’s interest. »

Et Online have revealed that they will return to the popular series in episode seventeen, appropriately titled “Suicidal Tendencies”. Unfortunately, Michael Jai White won’t be back as Bronze Tiger, but Michael Rowe Will be back as Deadshot (the character Will Smith is set to play in the 2016 movie).
A new addition to the team is Amy Gumenick as Cupid, a character we met a little earlier in season three. She has a serious thing for The Arrow, so seeing them potentially interact once again promises to be very interesting indeed!
Those are the only members confirmed to appear as of right now, but expect more to follow as two villains don’t make much of a squad! »

CBS have annnounced that Mehcad Brooks is to play photographer and ally of Krypton Jimmy Olsen in Supergirl, opposite Melissa Benoist. I always remember Olsen as portrayed by Marc McClure in the classic Christopher Reeve movie franchise. He was a well-meaning dope of sorts, kitted out like a Harvard professor but loyal and likeable.
This time out, he isn’t a Daily Planet employee but a lenser at Benoist’s workplace CatCo, where Kara Danvers/Supergirl spends her no-fly time. And as is the way with these things he is hiding a big secret. He’ll also be a prospective love interest of Benoist’s in a sort of reverse of the Clark Kent/Lois Lane relationship.
