Consider The Flash a superfriend with benefits.
Supergirl‘s visit from the CW speedster on Monday drew 7.24 million total viewers and a 1.7 rating, up 21 and 31 percent to bring to a screeching halt the CBS series’ four-week downward trend and lead all of the night’s scripted programs in the demo.
The yet-to-be-renewed Supergirl hit a four-week high in total audience while scoring its best demo number since Feb. 8. TVLine readers gave the well-promoted crossover an average grade of “A.”
Though not invited to Monday night’s DC-on-TV party, Fox’s Gotham (3.8 mil/1.3) held steady, as did its lead-out Lucifer (3.8 mil/1.2).
Leading out of #SuperFlash, CBS’ Scorpion (8.6 mil/1.6) ticked up from last week’s series low, while NCIS: LA (8.7 mil/1.2) dipped a tenth.
