It looks like Supergirl will remain airborne for another season.
At a Tuesday-morning Deutsche Bank Media, Internet & Telecom Conference, CBS CEO Les Moonves revealed that “about five” of the network’s rookie series will be back next fall. The exec didn’t specify which quintet he was referring to, but when you eliminate the already- (and hastily) cancelled Angel From Hell, that leaves six freshman contenders: Supergirl, Code Black, Limitless, Life in Pieces and the yet-to-premiere Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders and Rush Hour.
Supergirl opened strong, settled and stabilized, though at last tally slipped to a series low; to date, it is averaging 8.1 million weekly viewers and a 1.8 demo rating. Limitless thus far is averaging 7.5 mil and a 1.4, while Code Black pulled 7.1 mil/1.3 across its 18-episode debut. Leading out of Big Bang, Life in Pieces has enjoyed an average of 8.9 mil/2.0.
Beyond Borders bows Wednesday, March 16 at 10/9c, while Rush Hour takes over the Thursdays-at-10 slot starting March 31. (Elementary moves to Sundays at 10 starting March 20.)
