Supergirl soars in CW debut!

CBS export “Supergirl” soared to great heights on it’s new home, The CW, last night.

The show was the CW’s most watched show (3.024M) in its time period in nearly 8 years (a title previously held by “Gossip Girl” in 2008), the best rating in A18-49 (1.1/4) in nearly 6 years (90210 on 12/6/10), and its highest rating in A18-34 (0.9/4) in almost 5 years (11/21/11). “Supergirl” was also The CW’s highest rated show ever in its time period in M18-49 (1.2/4).
