Super-Sized Scorpion to Follow Supergirl's October Launch

Scorpion Supergirl

Here’s a genius idea for Scorpion’s second season: The CBS procedural’s Oct. 26 episode will be 90 minutes long, following Supergirl’s debut, the network announced at Comic-Con on Thursday.

The night will open with an original episode of The Big Bang Theory at 8 pm, followed by Supergirl at 8:30 pm and a super-sized Scorpion at 9:30 pm.

Supergirl then will move into its regular time slot on Nov. 2 at 8 pm, followed by Scorpion at 9 pm.

In addition, The Big Bang Theory will move to its regular Thursday spot on Nov. 5 following the conclusion of Thursday Night Football.

    Thank goodness CBS doesn’t want a comedy rerun @ 10:30 p.m. which was a risky decision on the network’s part. So excited for Supergirl when it premieres on October 26th as well as the super-size 90 minute episode of Scorpion. One final note, I’m wondering whether Supergirl or Scorpion should get the post Super Bowl episode for the big game on February 7, 2016.

    That is some super-confusing scheduling for the segment of the population who don’t have DVRs and don’t habitually watch CBS for an entire evening.

      There are a number of people without DVRs who can still watch many shows after the fact with on-demand. The number of people who can’t watch something after it’s aired is well under half these days.

    I hope this does not lead to Supergirl and Scorpion being the two shows that will cross over in the future…
