The CW's Arrowverse, in its 2017 form, comprises 4 shows: Arrow, Flash, Legends of Tomorrow and Supergirl.

The 4 shows have different atmospheres:

  1. Arrow is the most grounded of all shows, revolving around the question of vigilantes and justice, and a bit of politics. It features limited sci-fi or supernatural elements.
  2. The Flash is all about meta-humans with special abilities, time travel, and other dimensions.
  3. Legends of Tomorrow is centered about time travel and its consequences.
  4. Supergirl also has superpowered beings but deals more with aliens and how they impact Earthlings' life.

For each episode (1), these shows get around 2.21 million viewers for Arrow, 3.5 million viewers for Flash, for 2.57 million viewers for Legends of Tomorrow and 2.12 million viewers for Supergirl.

Maybe it is the mathematician in me speaking, but I always wondered how the viewership spread amongst the 4 shows. Which part of the audience watches all of them? Only one of them?

Do we have any figure (from the CW or independent source) about the viewership of the Arrowverse?

Bonus points if your answer includes a 4-sets Venn diagram.

(1) I arbitrarily took the viewership of the last season, according to Wikipedia.

  • I'd say there's likely a good deal of crossover at least among the comic book enthusiast crowd. But as a guess, maybe 55% +- 15% – Derek Dec 4 '17 at 2:19
  • I'd be glad if the closevoter explains his/her decision. I was not sure if the question belongs to here or to movies.SE actually. – Taladris Dec 4 '17 at 2:27

    Arrow has limited supernatural elements if you ignore seasons 4 and 5, I suppose. – phantom42 Dec 4 '17 at 2:28

    Err 3 & 4. 5 to a lesser extent. – phantom42 Dec 4 '17 at 2:37

    This is a perfectly on-topic question. If you’re not not sure it’s listed in our help center page. – Edlothiad Dec 4 '17 at 6:20
