What’s This TV Show About?
A DC Comics-inspired action-adventure drama airing on The CW television network, Supergirl stars Melissa Benoist, Mehcad Brooks, Chyler Leigh, Jeremy Jordan, David Harewood, Calista Flockhart, Chris Wood, Floriana Lima, and Katie McGrath. The series centers on Kara Zor-El (Benoist), the cousin of Kal-El, i.e. Superman (Tyler Hoechlin). To remain safe from Krypton’s destruction, Kara grew up on Earth, as Kara Danvers, a human. For years, she kept her powers a secret. Now, as an adult, she works at CatCo Worldwide Media and also for the Department of Extra-Normal Operations (DEO), a super-secret government organization whose mission is to keep National City – and the Earth – safe from sinister threats.
Season Three Ratings
The third season of Supergirl is averaging a 0.54 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 1.95 million viewers. Compared to season two, that’s down by 27% and down by 17%, respectively. Learn how Supergirl stacks up against the other CW TV shows.
Let’s get real. In 2016-17, this series was the network’s second best performer in both the demo and total viewership. Unless someone douses it with Kryptonite, I don’t think it’s getting cancelled anytime too soon. Still, I’ll keep an eye on the Nielsens and will update this page with breaking developments, while I peruse my collection of takeout menus.
