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.

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