That comes from Leslie Moonves, the man in charge at CBS. He spoke about the series and the switch to CW at the CBS Upfronts on Wednesday.
According to Deadline, he said the following:
“It’s great to own two networks. Supergirl fits better on the CW. If they didn’t go there, we would’ve probably taken it back.”
Glenn Geller also spoke about the series and its move to CW, and he echoed Moonves sentiments. He said, “It’s a win-win since we co-own the CW. We worked out great deal. And who would say we wouldn’t have picked it up had it not gone to the CW.”
Supergirl will join the line-up of DC shows on CW next fall. The network picked it up for a full 22-episode order, and it will keep its Monday night time slot next fall.
