TV Ratings: ‘Supergirl’ Jump-Starts The CW’s DC Crossover Week

The CW’s big four-part DC crossover got off to a solid start Monday. “Supergirl” pulled in a 1.1 rating in the advertiser-coveted 18-49 demographic and 3.51 million viewers, an improvement on the week before and right on the money (so to speak) with its season premiere in October. “Jane the Virgin” followed with a 0.5 in the demo and 1.24 million viewers. (Incidentally, the network’s 0.8 demo average for the night was its highest in six years.)

NBC won the night, in typical fashion, thanks to “The Voice” (2.0 demo rating, 9.7 million viewers). “Timeless” came in a little lower than the previous week, with a 1.1 in the demo and 4.86 million viewers.

A note about ABC’s preliminary numbers: The ABC affiliates in Philadelphia and Milwaukee carried Monday’s Eagles-Packers game, which may mean some downward adjustment for its ratings. “CMA Country Christmas” pulled in a 1.3 in the demo and 7.82 million viewers, well above its performance last year, though it remains to be seen how much of that increase was due to football in the aforementioned markets. “Conviction” came in with a 1.0 and 4.66 million viewers.

The midseason finales of “Gotham” and “Lucifer” on Fox both did well: “Gotham” drew a 1.1 in the demo and 3.65 million viewers, but it was “Lucifer” that impressed, with a solid (for these days, for that network) 1.2 demo rating and 4.4 million viewers.

CBS ran repeats of “Scorpion,” “The Big Bang Theory” and its usual Monday night comedy block.

As a reminder, many of these series will see ratings lifts of 50% or more once viewing within three and seven days is counted. However, most of those gains won’t translate to the guarantees networks make advertisers.
