In fact, we're sad to declare that the viewing audience of the show continues to decrease. The third season premiere has garnered 1.711 million viewers with a 0.57 key demo among adults 18-49. This figure was about six percent less versus the last season premiere. The viewership has dropped below the mark of 1.3 million viewers by the end of the season. However, there is no reason for panic. We're confident that even if the viewership is decreased below one million viewers per episode, The CW won't cancel the show since it ideally fits the network's lineup. So we assume that The CW is about to pick up DC's Legends of Tomorrow for a fifth season as well.
Besides, the response from critics has become better this season. On Rotten Tomatoes, the third installment of Legends holds a score of 7.98/10 and a 100% approval rating from critics, while the viewers have evaluated the current season of the sci-fi series at 3.6/5/66%. But on Metacritic, the reviews from the target audience were mainly mixed, 6.0/10. At the same time, on IMDb, the show's rating still looks high, 7.0/10 > 67,600 votes. As a result, DC's Legends of Tomorrow possesses the impressive statistics and therefore has a chance for at least one more season on The CW, in our opinion.
