    The network debut of SUPERGIRL delivered The CW’s most watched show (3.024M) in its time period in nearly 8 years (GOSSIP GIRL on 12/1/08), 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 (10/12/15, series premiere of CRAZY EX-GIRLFRIEND), SUPERGIRL more than tripled the performance in total viewers and all key demos.

    Versus last season’s time period averages, SUPERGIRL was +246% in total viewers, +200% in A18-34, and +267% in A18-49.

    SUPERGIRL ranked #3 in its time period in M18-34 (0.9/4) and #3 (tie) in M18-49.


    Dancing With the Stars (8-10pm – 10.5 million and 1.6/5 in AD18-49): From 8-10pm, ABC’s Dancing with the Stars held steady week to week in Adults 18-49 (1.6/5 vs. 1.7/6). Head to head in the 2-hour slot, Dancing marked its closest finish this season with NBC’s The Voice in Total Viewers (-700k) and Adults 18-49 (-1.3 rating points-tie).

    Conviction (10-11pm – 4.7 million and 0.9/3 in AD18-49): At 10pm, ABC’s Conviction retained 100% its week-earlier series debut in Adults 18-49 (0.9/3). Live + 3 Day for Last Week’s Debut: In L+3, Conviction grew +56% in Adults 18-49 (Monday’s 2nd biggest gainer) to a 1.4 rating and added 2.1 million Total Viewers for an average audience of 7.3 million viewers after 3 days of TV playback.

  3. Ouch at Timeless and Conviction. Both ABC and NBC epic failed it this year in the post Voice and post Dancing with the Stars slot. Poor Atwell just can’t catch a break. Timeless is okay but I won’t cry a river if it’s canceled.

    Supergirl was a massive improvement from what CW has aired in that slot for years now. I think in the overnights that is a 68% jump from just last year alone. And shocking lead against Gotham in the second half hour.

    Scorpion was better suited at 9PM. Love this show by the way. The last episode was tense.

    Curious case with Lucifer. Will fox keep ? I have no clue it’s doing better than Gotham by a hair. And I LOVE the writing. I didn’t think I’d like this show based on the previews but I fell in love with it.

    • All those 3 million viewers shows are huge flops.

      The fact you are right that executives are debating which to keep is quite the commentary on today’s Hollywood mores.

      On Supergirl, the spin that it’s doing great because it did better than bigger flops just doesn’t hold water (and Gotham just barely beat it in both half-hours – not that it makes any difference to the bottom line).

      • The CW network in general is in horrible markets which I doubt you take in to any consideration. In my market in Atlanta, the CW is in the network that use to be UPN which I have to tell you use to be nearly STATIC with antenna. I have no idea how it looks for folks now. And this network tends to have the most pre-emptions overall.

        • CW was made of the best UPN and WBN affiliates. You are right those weren’t as high-quality as say CBS, but last I looked was available in 99% of households.

          I’m sure you’re right on pre-emptions. If you were an affiliate, you’d pre-empt as many times as possible too… 😉

          • UPN was the worst affiliate in my market which is the Atlanta market. In the analogue days, it was always the one with static and a bad picture while the WB channel was clear as day.

            • Nationwide, my memory of it was the WBN had an almost as good coverage as the major networks (over 95%) while UPN was just over 90% and thus suffered more from lack of coverage.

  4. Supergirl flopped in its initial episode for CW, even if it did better than the flops CW has had in that time slot since 2008.

    Absolute numbers don’t lie (ie. we can’t call Gotham a “winner” because it barely beat Supergirl).

    BBT can’t seem to regain the audience lost to a bad premiere episode while Kevin keeps sliding and now loses close to 50% of its lead-in… @ Broke Girls continues not to perform and Scorpion is also retreating.

    Lots of bad news for CBS too.

    Timeless and Conviction keep hemorrhaging viewers.

    In other words Mondays need help. Stat!

    Sadly it’s unlikely any is forthcoming.
