THE FLASH
Air Date: Tuesday, October 07, 2014
Time Slot: 8:00 PM-9:02 PM EST on The CW
Episode Title: (#101) "City of Heroes" (Pilot)

SERIES PREMIERE


"City of Heroes" (Pilot)


THE FASTEST MAN ALIVE IS BORN - Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) was just 11 years old when his mother was killed in a bizarre and terrifying incident and his father (John Wesley Shipp) was falsely convicted of the murder. With his life changed forever by the tragedy, Barry was taken in and raised by Detective Joe West (Jesse L. Martin), the father of Barry's best friend, Iris (Candice Patton). Now, Barry has become a brilliant, driven and endearingly geeky CSI investigator, whose determination to uncover the truth about his mother's strange death leads him to follow up on every unexplained urban legend and scientific advancement that comes along. Barry's latest obsession is a cutting edge particle accelerator, created by visionary physicist Harrison Wells (Tom Cavanagh) and his S.T.A.R. Labs team members, Caitlin Snow (Danielle Panabaker) and Cisco Ramon (Carlos Valdes), who claim that this invention will bring about unimaginable advancements in power and medicine. However, something goes horribly wrong during the public unveiling, and when the devastating explosion causes a freak storm, many lives are lost and Barry is struck by lightning. After nine months in a coma, Barry awakens to find his life has changed once again - the accident has given him the power of super speed. Thrilled with his new powers, Barry learns how to control them with the help of Dr. Wells and his team. However, keeping his secret from his best friend Iris (Candice Patton) is proving to be harder than he thought, especially when Joe's new partner, Eddie Thawne (Rick Cosnett), catches her eye. When another meta-human attacks the city, it's time to put Barry's new powers, and himself, to the test.

David Nutter directed the episode with story by Greg Berlanti, Andrew Kresiberg and Geoff Johns and teleplay by Andrew Kreisberg and Geoff Johns (#101).

Well saw the first ep, not bad for a pilot.
The only thing I didnt like was tornado boy, sort of a version of storm in x-men.
I wish they would keep the powers simple and specific.
It is cool the 90's flash is playing his dad.

@tscc, they showed some previews and felicity will be in some future eps.

Around episode 8, there will be a crossover episode between both Arrow and Flash, they both will crossover. I liked it, Barry is very likeable and the Star Labs assistants are also likeable. Lookng forward to Arrow tonight.

I agree with you guys.
The pilot for me was surprisingly well watchable. I expected much less, because I usually am pretty sceptical about superhero shows.
But nicely done and a likable cast, so maybe this might get a good combo with Arrow, especially with crossovers from time to time.
BTW, the pilot was out months ago, but you surely did know, didn't you?
But as I thought from the beginning, I'm even more convinced now that this was not because of unwanted leaking, but because of a deliberate act of clever promotion ... just look at the ratings ... The CW must be thrilled about them ...

Preliminary Broadcast primetime ratings for Tuesday, October 7, 2014

CW The Flash 1.8 (18-49 rating) 6 (18-49 share) 4.50 (viewers live + SD, millions)

No I did not know, thanks for telling me !
I just found out when I was getting this one and saw some back at end of june.

Chances are they did leak it on purpose. the 1.8 is good for current CW ratings, but low for 4.5 mil.
Back when VD did over 3 mil they had a 2.5 demo or maybe even a 3.0.
So that means a lot of the viewers are either over 49 or under 18.
That might help SN get even better ratings since it follows the flash.

Now the question is will that fall a lot like Tscc, or will it hold most of that? or will it go up like WD!
It would be funny for a CW show to beat some of the regular network shows.
And actually that is close to beating shield..... well actually it did beat the 3rd ep of shield !!
and
CW The Flash 1.8 6 4.50
ABC Selfie 1.1 4 3.90
FOX Family Guy -R (8-9PM) 0.9 3 1.98
it beat the abc and fox shows for that hour and CW finished in 3rd place above abc for the night!
never saw that before.
Highest premiere since VD , that is pretty good, so yeah guess they are excited, now to see if it holds up the next few shows.
SN was 1.2 like last year, but 2.79 on viewers is higher than normal for them. it is usually 2.0 to 2.4 so it might pick up some flash viewers.

Ok ez did you notice in the one scene where there was a cage but no animal and there was a sign that said "Grodd" ???????
That will be the intelligent ape villian.
He was a early one back in the 60's.

wow that is good,I am used to our shows getting adjusted down like Nikita!
For CW the 4.79 is very good. I wonder what VD had for its initial premeire??
Back then all the CW shows had better ratings overall.

So in a way this might be CW's highest rating ever since it took over from WB.
I do think VD had a much higher demo though, maybe in the low 3's.

the demo is low, compare it to SN which had 2.79 mil and it had a 1.2........well now that I look at some others,
maybe it isnt low !

POI had a 1.8 for 10.7, and some others at 1.8 all had 5 mil or more.

If the show does not drop much or was to actually go up, the show might be announced as a full 22 ep Season, and the best thing is CW wont ask for any changes, they can do what ever they want with the show.

Well, I don't know if these numbers given in the link are correct, but if they are, then it should be The CW's most watched premiere. And most watched doesn't mean demo, but absolute numbers, as I'd say ...
