November 17, 2015: "Livewire" Gives Ratings Rise for "Supergirl"Print

Supergirl While DVR scores are definitely helping Supergirl's ratings, it appears as though the live viewership has increased this week, with 7.87 million viewers watching the "Livewire" episode... live.

    According to preliminary national estimates from, "Supergirl" averaged a 1.8 rating/5 share in adults 18-49 and 7.9 million viewers overall in the 8 o'clock hour, up a tick from last week when the show saw its second straight sizable decline following its strong premiere (which benefited from a lead-in from "The Big Bang Theory"). It still placed third among the broadcasters in 18-49 for its timeslot, but pulled to within a tick of ABC's "Dancing," which had beaten it by a quarter of a ratings point the previous week (1.95 vs. 1.7). Last week's "Supergirl" grew in Live+3 to a 2.5 rating in adults 18-49 and 10.1 million viewers overall.

    While the audience for Fox's "Gotham" was again about 60-65% male in various age groups, the audience for "Supergirl" remains more balanced gender-wise at about 50-55% male. The rookie won head-to-head in all key female categories.

We'll bring you the Live+DVR statistics later in the week.

November 17, 2015: Melissa Benoist Talks About the Legacy of SupergirlPrint

Supergirl E! Online caught up with Melissa Benoist to talk to her about the responsibility of playing Supergirl, what it will mean for her career, and her thoughts on Helen Slater. Here's part of the interview...

    What have you learned about yourself from playing Kara and Supergirl?

    This job is really teaching me things. It's forcing me to confront a lot of my fears in terms of confrontation and what that means and how you exhibit strength and power as a woman, but doing it with grace and kindness. That's mostly what I've learned from Kara. And she's insatiably hopeful and positive, even when things feel hopeless. She always has a silver lining in her mind. She always finds a way. That's part of how heroic she is. I definitely feel like that's inspired me. I don't know if I apply it to my day-to-day life, I don't know if I've really gotten a knack for that yet, but it's definitely inspiring.

    I hope you weren't afraid of heights -

    No. [Laughs.] That was not a fear of mine, thank goodness.

    Helen Slater is your adoptive mom on the show and she's still tied to this role 30 years after she starred in the Supergirl movie. Are you prepared for that? This could be your legacy.

    Yeah, I definitely feel that weight and I feel that responsibility, really, because the fans - if it's a success and they like you playing the role that they cover so much, that's amazing. I'm excited about that. I think that's a wonderful thing, to reach people that way. It is cool to be around her and Dean Cain and see how it shaped their lives.

November 16, 2015: What You Need to Know About the Skipped "Supergirl" EpisodePrint

James and Lucy Due to the violence in Paris this past week, CBS issued a notice yesterday advising that the episode of "Supergirl" which was scheduled to air tonight, November 16 (titled "How Does She Do It?") has been skipped over, replaced with the next episode in line, "Livewire".

While "How Does She Do It?" contained Supergirl flying around National City trying to stop a series of bombs from exploding, CBS deemed the timing of the episode inappropriate. While we don't yet know if this episode will be shown at a later date, there are a number of story threads that would have been addressed in this episode that we now need to fill in for ourselves. What happened with Kara babysitting Kat's son Carter? What did James Olsen decide to do now that his ex-girlfriend Lucy Lane want to rekindle their relationship?

Jenna Dewan-Tatum (who plays Lucy Lane) spoke with ComicBookResources.com about where things are at with her character...

    "There's a lot of unfinished business [between James and Lucy]," Dewan-Tatum explained. "There's a lot of unspoken feelings. Her motivation, when she comes back, is to right her own wrongs. She didn't end things well with him… and she knows she made a mistake, so she goes to get him back. I found that really empowering as a woman."

    However, Lucy didn't show up in National City just to thwart Kara's affections for Jimmy. Instead, Lucy will develop a friendship with Kara. "[Lucy is] really sweet to her, and she says, 'I want to be your friend.' There's a warmth to her that's really hard to fight," Dewan-Tatum shared. "There's an inherent friendship between them that Kara can't deny."

    "What I love is that [the writers] are really about making the James/Kara/Lucy triangle unexpected," she added. "I'm not coming into town to play this bitchy, icy woman that just wants to ruin the relationship that everyone wants to be together. I hope people will understand and get invested in this relationship, rather than [seeing me as] just the foil for the two of them. It takes on a life of its own, which is also really empowering."

In an interview with TVGuide.com (conducted before the announcement that the episode would be pulled), Mehcad Brooks also spoke about the events of this episode:

    We know that Kara is going to be babysitting Cat's son Carter (Levi Miller) in Monday's episode. Does Kara call on James to help with any of that?

    Brooks: James' superpower is not raising children. So in that episode, James has a lot on his plate as well because the reason that Cat (Calista Flockhart) needs Kara to watch her son is because she's going somewhere. So, James kind of takes the office over and starts to run the company for a little while.

    How does that go for him, that taste of power? Does he enjoy it? Or do things kind of fall apart under his watch?

    Brooks: James is not an office guy. He is behind a desk right now, but if you know the canon, he's always out there in the field with Superman. He's his best friend, he's taking the pictures. In our version, he's won a Pulitzer Prize for a photograph of Superman, and he loves being out there in the field. So, when you put him in a corporate environment, it's not quite exactly what he signed up for.

November 16, 2015: "Supergirl" Finishes as Week's Top-Rated Broadcast DramaPrint

Supergirl According to a press release issued by CBS today, the Premiere of "Supergirl" gained nearly four million viewers and +1.3 rating points in Adults 18-49 to finish as the week's Top-Rated Broadcast Drama.

    THE BIG BANG THEORY scored the biggest live + 7-day lift among adults 18-49 while the premiere of SUPERGIRL was the top-rated broadcast drama, according to Nielsen live +7-day ratings for the week ending Nov. 1, Week Six of the season.

    In adults 18-49, the premiere of SUPERGIRL climbed +1.3 (4.4 from 3.1, +42%), finishing as the week's top-rated broadcast drama and second-highest-rated broadcast behind THE BIG BANG THEORY. Among viewers, SUPERGIRL added +3.96m (16.92m from 12.96m, +31%), making it the second-most-watched broadcast drama of the week behind only NCIS (20.74m).

This is great news for "Supergirl", with CBS clearly very aware of the trend for fans to watch their favorite show's later in the week via DVR.

November 16, 2015: Neal Adams' Thoughts on Superman Ahead of "The Coming of the Supermen"Print

Coming of the Supermen "The Coming of the Supermen" by Neal Adams is a six-issue miniseries scheduled to start in February 2016 that will (according to the man himself) feature "all of Jack Kirby's characters fighting Superman; beginning with Kalibak." In an interview with IGN.com Neal Adams speaks about returning to write Superman after so many years, his ideal version of Superman, and how he wants fans (especially women) to react to the character. Here's an excerpt from the interview...

    Superman has changed so much over the years. Right now he doesn't have the cape; he's got the t-shirt, and his powers have been reduced. Max Landis is currently doing a young Superman story that's a little different. We've seen the Man of Steel movie with Superman coming to the point where he has to break Zod's neck. Have any of those takes on Superman influenced how you write him?

    Adams: Well, I must say that I walk the center line. I truly believe that the Superman I'm trying to do is Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster's Superman, a Superman who might not be able to fly into the Sun - a Superman, though, that doesn't have his powers taken away and is the most powerful comic book superhero. I'm enjoying what DC Comics is doing with Superman now, but I'm not doing that Superman. The other guys are doing that Superman. I'm doing Superman.

    On the other hand, since I'm a realistic type of character, I'm trying to do a realistic Superman. So when he does get hit in the face with a girder, he does fall and get hurt, and maybe he gets a bruise. He's a superman, but he's not a god. So I feel very strongly that the Superman I'm doing is Jerry and Joe's, and I feel that I'm in that tradition. I'm enjoying that tradition. Because after all, in a weird kind of way, it's the only tradition for me since that's what I started with, and that's what I continue with. So I'm not going all the way out - you know, I'm not a lefty, I'm not a righty; I'm right down the middle of Superman being Superman. I like the idea of utilizing the two words in that: "super" and "man." I want him to be a Son of America. I want him to believe in the things that we believe in. I want him to use his best abilities, to do the best things. I don't want him to let people die. Of course, I don't want him to break villains' necks, as it happened in the movie. That's not the Superman that I believe in. I believe Superman would win by not doing that. I like that Superman.

November 16, 2015: Neal Adams Themed Variant Covers for February 2016Print

Action Comics #49 DC Comics has announced that the theme for their variant covers for comic books being released in February 2016 will be comic book legend Neal Adams... drawn by Neal Adams.

    "[DC Comics] came up with the idea that I was going to do a whole bunch of covers, right?" Adams recalled to us. "And they were all going to appear at the same time, and they're all going to be homages to this apparently legendary comic book artist. So I said, 'Who is the comic book artist?' They said, 'Uh... Neal Adams.' [Laughs] 'You guys have to be kidding? Really?' 'No, no! You'll do homages to your covers!' 'No, that's crazy!' 'No, it would be great! It'll be cool! Except each cover would have different characters for different books.' 'Really? Like, so Robin isn't dead, and Batman isn't over him? It's somebody else?' 'Yeah.' 'Oh!' These people are crazy. But it sounds like a great idea. So apparently we're doing that, and we're getting a different inker to ink each cover, which is crazy too. I don't know exactly how they're going to place them or how they're going to do them, but I will tell you this: I have penciled every single one of them, and they're in the hands of DC Comics. That's right. If this isn't the craziest, weirdest, most wonderful idea I've ever heard, I can't imagine what it is."

    First off, I loved this story.

    In fact, this is the best Superman related comic I have read in years.

    Part of me thinks that I shouldn't have. For one thing I have a beef with Max Landis but I put all of that to the side because there is a difference between making a video which wrongly trashed one of my favorite storylines ever and writing a story about a young Clark Kent. It would have been terribly unfair to judge this series and this issue by that video. From the various interviews I have seen and read Max Landis comes off as having a genuine love for Superman as a character. I'm not sure I agree with everything he says about Clark and Superman and all that but there is an integrity to his comments that makes me believe them.
