The Question, Wednesday 10/9/13: Will the Arrow Point Up for the CW Tomorrow?


The CW triple-header wraps up tonight as the network completes the split-up of last season's solid Wednesday lineup. Arrow remains in the Wednesday lead-off role and now leads into similar-themed new drama The Tomorrow People about a bunch of people with extraordinary abilities. While Tomorrow may not have quite the same kind of built-in appeal as comic book-based Arrow, it could make for a very compatible pairing, especially tonight. Will the arrow point up for the CW tomorrow? That's The Question for Wednesday, October 9, 2013.

1.3 (premiere, 10/10/12)

Arrow: 1.0
Tomorrow People: 0.9

Under.

Spot said...

I like the pairing of these two, but I don't know if they can both do at least a 1.0.

UNDER

Spot said...

Over, Arrow was already the highest rated new show on the CW it will break 1.2-1.5 Tomorrow people will drop slightly less than half, leaving the overall number at 2.1-2.2. Just barely over.

Spot said...

Under...

Spot said...

The CW do have a good record of shows of this nature starting with a 1.x and the excellent number for Supernatural sways me to over (2.1)

Spot said...

Over because I want this to work too badly to be pessimistic

Spot said...

I think Arrow can get back to a 1.x for its premiere, so it can pull its half needed to pass this Line. The Tomorrow People is a little more suspect. It's a pre-existing brand, but one that's not very well known in the States, And while Wednesday at 8:00 has the general ratings sense of "Meh," the 9:00 hour more than makes up for that with MF, CM, and a revitalized SVU. Since shows with a genre or sci-fi twist tend to start well enough for the CW when paired with something at all appropriate (though I don't think that would have even saved Cult), and since I'm an optimist in general when it comes to this game, I'll buy instead of sell tonight.

Over.

Under

Spot said...

Arrow 1.1, Tomorrow People 0.9, at best. Under.

Spot said...

I really like your game, Spot ... but this season I have no time for it, sorry. I could randomly guess each day, but prefer not to.


But can we revert it, just for today? Me to ask the question, which would be:
Revolution vs Arrow (w/ handicap 0.15)?

Spot said...

Under. At a guess 1.1, and 0.8

Spot said...

I was going to ask an unofficial question like this one in my comment today to hear from the rest of the room. :-)

That's too narrow of a spread in my opinion. Arrow would have to debut at a 1.3 again while Revolution would have to drop another two ticks. That's not impossible but feels unlikely. My spread was Revolution beats Arrow by 0.35 (with my prediction roughly being 1.6 to 1.2).

Spot said...

This would be an easy under pick if not for yesterday's surprisingly high Supernatural numbers. I don't think that Tomorrow People can reach a 1, so I will say:


Arrow: 1.1
Tomorrow People: 0.8
TOTAL: 1.9- Under

Spot said...

Over. I think they'll average a 1.1 for the night.

Spot said...

Over. i dunno

Spot said...

I keep getting these questions wrong haha but I'm just gonna say barely Over.

Spot said...

That feels really high. Though Supernatural did go way higher than I expected...eh, I'll go under.

Spot said...

Arrow feels like it's going to come back to a 1.1, so this comes down to whether Tomorrow People can make it to One-derland.


A reluctant under.

Spot said...

Under

Spot said...

I want it to be over so bad, but I don't know. Arrow was pretty consistent, but softened towards the end. Tomorrow People is a brand I recognize, being a child of the 90s who had Nickelodeon when they reran stuff constantly. Will it connect with younger viewers, though? Superheroes are popular now, but I wonder about saturation. I will go with...


Arrow: 1.2
Tomorrow: 1.0


Over.

Spot said...

My gut's churning badly again. Even worse than last night. But my coin tosses have a bad history, so I'm not resorting to that just yet.


I think the big reason is my trepidation over The Tomorrow People. I'm pretty sure Arrow can hit above a 1, but I don't know that Tomorrow People can cover the difference.


I think I have to go Under on this one.

Spot said...

I'll take Arrow and the points.

Spot said...

This could be very interesting down the stretch if 9-9 tracks Mindy in 18-49. Of course, they might not be competing for the last renewal, but if they are...
