SUPERGIRL flew onto the screen and into ratings super-stardom on Monday night, and CBS has posted a sneak peek clip about what viewers can look forward to this season.
Among series premiering this fall, Live+Same Day ratings show that the SUPERGIRL debut tied with another Greg Berlanti series, BLINDSPOT, in key demos and led all new shows in total viewers.
SUPERGIRL averaged a 3.1 rating in adults 18-49 and 12.95 million viewers overall during its pilot debut and it retained 70% of the young-adult audience of THE BIG BANG THEORY.
Live+3 and Live+7 may increase those numbers as the Girl of Steel was up against competitors, THE VOICE and DANCING WITH THE STARS, two series that lend themselves to watching live as there is limited-time voting by viewers.
Favorable reviews from the media indicate the frosh series has a bright future, as does the explosion in the Twitterverse for #Supergirl.
So what does that future hold for Kara Zor-El/SUPERGIRL? Answers to our “burning questions”, like her relationships with James Olsen (Mechad Brooks) Winn Schott (Jeremy Jordan) and Lucy Lane (Jenna Dewan-Tatum), are previewed in the clip, and the casting of Henry Czerny as Winslow Schott as Toyman/Winn’s dad clears up one of the queries.
SUPERGIRL moves to its regular timeslot at 8:00 p.m. ET/PT on Monday, November 2 on CBS.
