‘Supergirl’ Surpasses CBS Expectations

The Maid of Might outperformed CBS’s previous forecast!

It seems like the daring adventures of Supergirl will continue. CBS released their Live+3 ratings (numbers taken from DVR devices of television shows 3 days after the original airdate) for the premiere, which added an additional 3 million viewers to the original number from last week of around 13 million viewers. This puts the viewership at 16.3 million.

Check out our review of Supergirl Season 1, Ep. 1!

The Live+3 ratings also saw a rise in viewership for adults age 18-49, bringing the Girl of Steel’s first flight to a 4.1 rating in that demographic.
