Arrow's 'The Scientist' is on target, hits series highs in adults 18-34
'The Scientist', inwhich soon-to-be-The-Flash Barry Allen was being introduced, notched 3.24 million viewers, marking Arrow's most-watched episode of the season, and a 1.2 rating among adults 18-49, tying its season high (achieved in episode 2.06 "Keep Your Enemies Closer").
This is also good news for 'The Flash' spin-off that The CW will be shooting (the stand-alone pilot episode will be directed by David Nutter, who also directed the pilot for Arrow).
Here’s the press release from The CW with more infos on the various age demographics:
UPDATED – NEWS FLASH: ARROW HITS SERIES HIGH IN A18-34
ARROW Draws Most Watched Episode Since February,
Matches Series Highs in Men 18-34 and Men 18-49
as Barry Allen Arrives in Starling City
December 5, 2013 (Burbank, CA) – UPDATED: With Barry Allen making his first appearance in Starling City, The CW’s ARROW last night climbed to an all-time series high in adults 18-34 (1.2/4) and delivered its most watched episode (3.24 million) since February (2/13/13), according to national Live + Same Day Nielsen ratings for Wednesday, Dec. 4, 2013.
ARROW also matched its series highs in men 18-34 (1.4/6) and men 18-49 (1.5/5), while matching its season best in adults 18-49 (1.2/4).
Versus its last original episode two weeks ago, ARROW grew +22% in total viewers, +33% in adults 18-34, +20% in adults 18-49, +56% in men 18-34, and +36% in men 18-49.
ARROW ranked #1 in the 8:00-9:00p.m. hour in men 18-34, and ranking third (tied with Fox and ahead of ABC) in adults 18-34.
Last night was The CW’s best Wednesday of the season among adults 18-34 (0.9/3). For the night, The CW was up +14% in total viewers (2.49 million) versus two weeks ago, the most recent Wednesday with regularly scheduled programming. The network was up +29% in adults 18-34 (0.9/3), +13% in adults 18-49 (0.9/3), +57% in men 18-34 (1.1/4), and +38% in men 18-49 (1.1/3). It was The CW’s best Wednesday night among men 18-34 and men 18-49 since 2/13/13.
This season, ARROW sees a +45% increase in Live + 7 Day viewing versus Live + Same Day viewing among total viewers, averaging 4.1 million viewers per episode in L+7. ARROW also sees a +47% gain in adults 18-34, and a +54% increase in adults 18-49 in L+7 versus L+SD. THE TOMORROW PEOPLE sees a +41% increase in total viewers, a +55% increase in adults 18-34, and a +54% jump in adults 18-49 compared to same day viewing.
The introduction of DC comics fan favorite Barry Allen hits its target, judging from the ratings in adult 18-34 (1.2), men 18-34 (1.4) and men 18-49 (1.5). Though this episode did not deliver better ratings than the Diggle-centric-Isabel-Oliver-hooking episode in adult 18-49.
I wonder if Arrow can keep those numbers next week. Nevertheless, things are looking good for the Flash next year. Grant Gustin is perfect in the role so far.

Firefly promo photos taken at Frank Lloyd Wright designed house
Early Firefly promotional images were taken at the Ennis House, a residential dwelling in Los Angeles, designed by Frank Lloyd Wright in the twenties.
The design is based on ancient Mayan temples. Its prominent detail is the relief ornamentation on its textile blocks, inspired by the symmetrical reliefs of Mayan buildings.
Find below the promo shots with the Firefly cast taken at the Ennis house:
The building's exotic design made it an appealing location for Hollywood filmmakers.
Although used as a shooting location as early as 1933 (Female), the house first acquired morbid fame providing the exterior facade for the" House on Haunted Hill", a 1959 B movie starring Vincent Price (see photo below). The 1975 film The Day of the Locust made extensive use of the house as a private residence, but it was in 1982's "Blade Runner" that the house gained a popularity of its own among moviegoers (see photos below). Its exterior also appears as "The Mansion" occupied by Angelus, Spike, and Drusilla in Joss Whedon's television series "Buffy the Vampire Slayer".

Joss Whedon makes Summer blush at Sitges Festival
Director Joss Whedon and actors Summer Glau and Nathan Fillion made the opening of the 38th Sitges Film Festival on October 9th, 2005 with Serenity.
While the three of them were on stage to introduce the screening of Serenity to the audience, Joss Whedon thanked the audience, the director of the festival and the two movie stars and, in Whedon's own worlds, "particularly Summer Glau, in whose presence we are all underdressed".
Check out the video below, which has thus far almost gone unnoticed, as well as pictures of Joss Whedon, Nathan and a lovely Summer Glau wearing a black dress at 2005 Sitges Film festival, thanks to raul2010.
