Up, up, and away go the ratings!
Supergirl has had an uphill battle ever since it was announced as part of CBS‘s Fall TV lineup, but it seems like
superpowering through all of that adversity paid off.
That’s because Melissa Benoist & Co.’s premiere on Monday just came in as the season’s highest rated new series!
The DC Comics drama faced a lot of backlash — both from people claiming it was too feminist and not feminist enough — but thanks to a lead in from The Big Bang Theory, hopefully the nearly 13 million viewers who tuned are proof that a female-driven superhero project can work.
Make sure to catch Supergirl starring Melissa, Chyler Leigh, Mehcad Brooks, Jeremy Jordan, & Calista Flockhart every Monday at 8/7c on CBS!
And if you missed the pilot… have no fear, because SG isn’t going anywhere!
