It appears as though Halloween might have spooked off some viewers. Even Wednesday night stalwarts Modern Family and Criminal Minds saw decreased ratings.

Arrow also tied NBC's ailing comedy lineup, Animal Practice (3.9 million, 1.1) and Guys with Kids (4.2 million, 1.4), in total viewers in the 8 o'clock hour and in the 18-to-49 and 18-to-34 demos.
