fall 2018 ratings the gifted
The Gifted (Fox) vs. The Flash (CW)
Tuesdays at 8 pm
Will The Gifted prove less so once it goes up against The CW’s No. 1 show? Or will the two series eat into each other’s already niche audiences? Airing Mondays at 9/8c last fall, The Gifted averaged just over a 1.0 rating, and dipped beneath that benchmark four out of its last six airings. The Flash, meanwhile, closed out Season 4 down three-tenths year-to-year (0.8 vs. 1.1). What’s more, Barry Allen has never been pitted against fellow comic book lore.
PREDICTION: Each superhero series will dip a tenth versus their previous average.
