The Legends are off to a rough start. The DCTV show had its season four premiere, featuring a human heart eating unicorn that was slaughtering hippies at Woodstock because why not, didn’t do so well in the ratings. According to TV Line the debut with just over a million viewers and 0.3 demo rating. That isn’t horrible but it is down from the previous season and a series low. Now this could be because the CW did a major schedule shift and people are still trying to figure out where this show fits into their schedule.
Legends of Tomorrow has always been the oddball of the DCTV shows and it didn’t start out particularly strong but got better in its second season. It turns out we aren’t the only ones who think so since star Dominic Purcell, who plays Mick Rory aka Heat Wave, took to instagram last month to essentially trash the first season of the show.

First season of @cw_legendsoftomorrow sucked. We had to change it drastically. The writers the creative team changed its course with a genius master stroke. Let's have fun with it.!!!! ….Now we have a show that embraces the absurdity the farce and the brilliant nature of its theme. I'm proud to be apart of this show. I was not originally. It was a dud. I wanted off it worried me deeply; cut too 2018. I'm very proud more than proud to be a part of LEGENDS, a wonderfully "Monty python- esque show". I'm incredibly proud of my cast all of whom are exceptional talents who bring it! breathing life and lifting our amazing writers dreams off the page. It blows my mind how gifted our ART DEPARTMENT is. They continue to match and defeat every demand that is put on them. A rarity. " oh no we cant do that in 8 days". is a common cry in the TV WORLD not our team. They do it week in week out. Thank you !!! To my crew. I thank you for your diligence your want as professionals to deliver excellence. I we thank our hardcore base of #fans that appreciate all the hard work we do. No longer will I accept this sligh utterance that #legends is the in house joke that we are the ugly step sister in the @dccomics @warnerbrostv #arrowverse tv shit. . I know for a fact we are not seen as that within the cooperate structure. So shut the fuck up. We good. We handling our shit, we good. We family. We delivering. #grateful. 🖕🇦🇺🇺🇸🍺🌊 @caitylotz @brandonjrouth @nickzano @maisiersellers @mattryanreal @jesmacallan @talaashe and BIBO
