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).
Compared to the same week last season (when “My Crazy Ex-Girlfriend” aired), Greg Berlanti’s flights n’ tights drama more than tripled the performance in total viewers and all key demos.
Versus last season’s time period averages, the Melissa Benoist-starrer was +246% in total viewers, +200% in A18-34, and +267% in A18-49.
The show, now in it’s second season, ranked #3 in its time period in M18-34 (0.9/4) and #3 (tie) in M18-49.
In last nights episode, Superman joined the party – for the first time – with Tyler Hoechlin wearing the Red and Blue. In next weeks episode, former ‘Wonder Woman’ Lynda Carter joins the cast playing the POTUS.
