Supergirl Soars In Overnight Ratings

SupergirlCastSo the battle between Gotham and Supergirl took place last night and the new woman in town did extremely well. Coming off of a Big Bang Theory that pulled in a 4.2 rating and 15.87 million viewers, the debut of the latest superhero series 3.2 share 12.94 million viewers combining to win the 8 to 9 time slot over NBC's The Voice (3.1 / 11.86 Million).

But two very interesting things happen from there. Gotham's ratings were up for the night as well. Climbing 0.2 from last week to a 1.5 share and 4.85 million viewers.

Scorpion's 90-minute episode was also up over the previous week, bringing in a 1.9 with 9.64 million viewers. But Blindspot one the 10 pm slot with a 2.2 share and 8.08 million viewers, up a tenth from the previous week. The second Greg Berlanti series of the night benefited from being the only original show airing at 10 pm with Castle being a re-run and Scorpion having started 30 minutes prior.

Next week Supergirl will be starting at 8 PM and going head-to-head with Gotham. How the freshman series will do without the BBT lead in and without the series premiere hype will be interesting to see.
