On October 11, 2016, The CW published the statistics of the current season of “Supergirl.” Relying on these data, we can conclude that the network is about to renew “Supergirl” for a second season. Let’s take a look at some figures. “The network premiere of “Supergirl” was super-powered for The CW, giving the network its most-watched (3.024 million) show in its Monday 8:00-9:00pm time period in almost eight years, its best adults 18-49 (1.1/4) rating in nearly six years, and its highest adults 18-34 (0.9/4) rating in five years,” according to Nielsen Media Research.
“‘Supergirl’ was The CW’s highest rated show ever in its time period among men 18-49 (1.2/4). Compared to the same week last season, ‘Supergirl’ more than tripled the network’s performance in total viewers and all key demos. ‘Supergirl’ ranked #3 in its time period in men 18-34 (0.9/4) and #3 (tie) in men 18-49, and #4 in adults 18-34 and adults 18-49 (tie),” according to The CW.
As we may see, The CW is satisfied with the series launch. Let’s now take a look at the reception by critics and viewers in order to find out why The CW made the decision on renewal.
Currently, according to IMDB, “Supergirl” has a score of 6.6 out of 10 based on over 56,600 user votes, over 318 reviews from viewers and 38 reviews from critics. Although these figures may seem average, we must take into account that this is an overall score of the series mixed with its ratings on CBS. As for the current season, it has received universal acclaim among the critics, but a bit controversial reception from the viewers. At the moment, according to Rotten Tomatoes, the current season of “Supergirl” has an average score of 8.3 out of 10 and a 100% approval rating based on 20 reviews from critics, while the viewers have rated the second series of the superhero drama at 3.5 out of 5 with a 61% approval rating based on 175 user votes. At the same time, according to Metacritics, the current season of the action drama series has a score of 81 out of 100 based on 4 reviews from critics, whereas the viewers have rated the second series of “Supergirl” at 5.4 out of 10 based on 76 user ratings.
The premiere of Season 2 has drawn 3.024 million viewers (-76.36% compared to last season’s premiere on CBS) with a 1.10 demo rating (-65.08% demo change) among adults (18-49). For comparison, “Supergirl” Season 1 on CBS averaged a 1.68 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 7.68 million total viewers (Live+SD).
On November 8, 2016, it was announced that The CW’s “Supergirl” drew 2.471 million viewers and a 0.70 demo rating among adults (18-49), up 11.46% and 16.67%, respectively, ticked up from last week’s series lows. On Nov 16, The CW announced its midseason schedule. According to the schedule, “Supergirl” is coming back for Season 2B on Monday, January 23, 2017 at 8:00-9:00 PM on The CW. Meanwhile, Season 2A finale has drawn 3.530 million viewers (+35.51%) with a 1.10 demo rating (+20.88%) among adults (18-49). These indicators look incredibly good. We’re still expecting the official confirmation of a Season 3 of “Supergirl” from The CW. However, it’s quite predictable that the superhero series will be renewed for a next season by The CW.
On Jan 8, 2017, The CW picked up “Supergirl” for a next chapter, which premiere is slated for the 2017-208 season.
