Supergirl Premieres With Super Ratings


Supergirl premiered last night on CBS with very strong numbers. According to TVBytheNumbers, it’s the second highest rated show for last night among adults 18-49, with a 3.2/10 in the share and 12.94 million viewers per Nielsen Media’s live-plus-same day metrics and is only expected to double in DVR views, as most television shows do. The premiere also grew in its second half-hour and the audience was fairly well-balanced between men and women.

These ratings also make it the highest rated and most watched show on an opening night for a premiere show this Fall season, making it the top rated Fall show this year, which another score for DC Television, as The Flash last season became the highest rated program in The CW’s history.

Next week the series goes to its regular schedule of 8pm, so hopefully the ratings continue to stay strong as it won’t have The Big Bang Theory as it’s lean-in series.

My name is Eric and I am loving this current comic book boom, I was around for the first one with Superman: The Movie, Supergirl(being the first female and crossover film) and Batman and have been enjoying the resurgence since Blade. Can't express how much I cannot wait for WB & DC to take back the film universe but until than I love the TV shows we have gotten. I only started reading comics about 10 years ago but am connected more to DC over Marvel or any other major company. If you wanna chat feel free to contact me
