    Supergirl has it faults but is generally a good show.

    They need to tone Melissa’s over acting.
    They need to give us more hank henshaw. Like wat is he.

    The story needs to be generally less campy and slighlty more darker and surreal. It will do well.

    • DavidJ says:

      Eh, personally I really like that the show’s got such a bright and fun spirit to it, much like Lois & Clark back in the day. I don’t need every superhero show I watch to be in the same style as Arrow or Shield or Gotham.

      • I’ve seen plenty of shows that have a light, fun spirit, but Supergirl seems to be trying to be more like The Flash without any of the emotional stakes. Crazy Ex-Girlfriend is the show to watch instead of you want spirited fun, but also emotional resonance in its stories.

    • Lonmon says:

      Benoist has little range so her only choices are bland or too ecstatic.

      • tvjunkie says:

        You need to look up the definition of range, you don’t know what it means. Bland and too ecstatic are at the opposite ends of the range spectrum.

        • DV says:

          Performing at one side of the spectrum and/or the other but not knowing how to do anything in the middle is a fairly limited range.

          • tvjunkie says:

            you need to look up the definition as well. lack of range means you’re pretty stuck on 1 thing, not 2 or 3 or whatever, but 1.

      • DavidJ says:

        I think she’s shown a pretty impressive range myself. Granted the writing doesn’t always give her the most complex stuff to do, but there have been moments where she’s done some nice and subtle stuff. Like after the plane rescue in the pilot, when you see the hurt and disappointment on her face over her sister’s reaction.

    • tvjunkie says:

      Is she over acting or is she doing what she’s been told to do? I’m guessing she’s been told to play the character with a lot of vibrance.

    • Z says:

      I think Melissa is the best thing about the show.. I think her performance is what she is being asked to do… wouldnt consider it over-acting at all.

  2. DavidJ says:

    Woohoo, great to finally see Supergirl’s ratings leveling out a bit. And after another really fun and entertaining episode it deserves it.

  3. What was the difference between viewers and demo? Viewers seem to have gone down since last week, from 8.07 to 7.9.

  4. wrstlgirl says:

    I like Supergirl but I’m having a problem letting go of the fact that Cat doesn’t recognize Kara. I know I’m supposed to suspend belief here but it bugs the crap out of me, LOL!!

    • It shouldn’t. Addressing the glasses is more common than ignoring them.

    • Michael says:

      its the same with Superman why should it be a problem here then

    • Jeff hunter says:

      Being the comic fan I am,it might be just the ignorance of the “Filthy Rich”character that Cat is,in the actual comics themselves,back in June it was revealed by Lois Lane the Superman was indeed Clark Kent but Lex Luther,STILL doesn’t believe a “Country Bumpkin” like Kent could still be Superman and pretty much thinks its just stupid gossip,so there you go!jeff

    • Z says:

      She doesnt really disguise her voice like Superman does so it is a bit weird.. especially when she is standing right in front of Cat and calls her “Ms. Grant” in the same voice.

  5. kmw says:

    Nice that Supergirl went up bad that Scorpion went down and NCIS LA should be moved, they are struggling on Monday. Terrific for Gotham doing better than I thought against Supergirl. Nice that Castle managed to go up a little.

  6. Mr. Tran K says:

    So happy for both Blindspot and Supergirl last night. Speaking of Supergirl, kudos to Calista Flockhart for an amazing performance and in case they didn’t know the scrapped episode that was originally scheduled due to the terrorist attack in Paris is set for next week. No word yet if Supergirl gets a full season order by CBS even though the numbers weren’t setting the bar that high unlike what Agents of SHIELD (ABC) was.

  7. Boiler says:

    Nice to see Castle tick up. Hopefully it can hang in as ABC has many other problems

  8. Coach Taylor says:

    Just think what the numbers would still be for the Blacklist if it was still on Monday nights…when NBC inevitably moves Blindspot next year the ratings will unfortunately slip

  9. ninamags says:

    Supergirl, Scorpion and Blindspot were awesome last night. Jane looked amazing in that beautiful dress. I really liked Cat in the Supergirl episode also.

    Scorpion just gets crazier and crazier each week!

  10. kath says:

    Greg Berlanti must be happy, both Supergirl and Blindspot are up.

  11. Jennifer says:

    Loving “Supergirl”! It is just flat-out entertaining. Love its tone too: light, humorous, fun. Lots of pop culture references, like when Winn said he was going to binge watch “Orphan Black” or when Cat called Alex’s boss “Agent Muldur.” First scripted show in a long time that the whole family is enjoying together.

  12. Win says:

    I look at that picture and just wanna shout, “Fair is Fair” while Christian Slater rides by on his way to Mr. Robot on a scooter.

  13. Z says:

    Looks like Supergirls numbers are stabilizing which is good.

  14. Lovly says:

    May someone explain to a non-US resident how Scorpion has more viewers than Supergirl but has dropped in demo

    • Meg says:

      The demo is viewers 18-49 years old. Supergirl most likely draws a younger crowd than Scorpion so total viewers can be lower but the demo can be higher.

    • Boiler says:

      I will be negative, it is one of the dumbest ratings around as it ignores the older folk who are a much bigger percentage. They think we don’t change our minds anymore

  15. N says:

    Good for Castle

  16. Oh, Supergirl didn’t have Big Bang as a lead in that must mean Supergirl did better without it as a lead-in. Like, is there really definitive proof that Big Bang has that much of an effect on another show’s rating?
