Unwanted Exposure

"Darkness on the Edge of Town?" That's putting it mildly. There was darkness everywhere in Starling City this week. Getting to the edge might just be a relief!

TV Ratings: 'Arrow' Signs Off to Low Numbers

The CW was likely hoping that “Arrow” would sign off with a TV ratings bullseye, but the series finale failed to draw a large audience missed the mark a little. Stephen Amell officially brought out his bow one last time, and 723,000 total viewers tuned in to watch, which represents almost a 20% drop from the penultimate episode.
