LegendsofTomorrowposterThis week brought quite a number of returning shows as well as several premieres and the ratings results were a mixed bag for sci fi / fantasy entries.  The CW (just call them the Broadcast Network Sci Fi Channel) did the best on the week, with all of its returns and premieres scoring decent or better numbers.  The highly anticipated spin-off from Arrow and The Flash, Legends of Tomorrow, bowed on Thursday with a 1.2 rating based on the preliminary overnights for the 18-49 demographic with 3.1 million total viewers.  Those are definitely good numbers for the fifth place network and if this show can stay at or above a 1.0 average it has a good chance at a second season (though word is that The CW may do something different with the team-up concept next year because this show is so expensive).  Also on Thursday, The 100 returned for its third season and posted a 0.7 rating with two million total viewers (based on the preliminaries).  Those are the best numbers that show has seen since its first season and maybe the positive buzz it has been receiving from fans and critics has brought in new viewers.  If it can hold at that level, it is almost assured a third season, especially considering the acclaim it has been getting of late.  Read the full article at our partner site
