Ugh. Do not like them breaking up series runs like this. They did this crap with Doctor Who and it’s so disruptive to the flow of following a season.

Mucking around with the timeslots is an even more sure-fire way to have audiences forget about you.

Well hopefully it won’t affect the amount of people watching her show. I’m still going watch it even if the time or date is different.

I wish….but…

Just negotiate a contract and release the entire series (22 – 26 eps boom) on Netflix and take if off the CW as to allow for binge watching commercial, and sensor-ship free convenience. This will be the way all TV programs will be seen anyway:)

Opps… too late the series is already on Netflix and depending on what region of the globe you are in – you get the 3rd season first run 24 hours after it run on the CW for the first time.

Ha ha that’s a funny joke. That is a joke right? I’d understand if it’s season 1 and 2 on Netflix but they would still air current seasons on CW . I’m so hoping it’s a joke. I’d have to wait every year for the next season to be out on dvd.

No joke, YES Season 3 Ep 1-9

It all depends on the region you are getting Netflix or UK’s Sky one (since they bought a share in Supergirl Recently) in.

Lets say you live in the Pac Rim, UK or Uzbekistan and have Netflix you can stream the 3rd season as we speak. While the US and Canada have to wait till after the season finale!

They already made a mistake by moving Arrow to Thursday. What they’re going to do is upset any continuity that they have created. What we have is the CW mixing things up for it’s new Black Lightening series. As much as I watch all four of the shows the weakest by far is Legends of T. I though maybe they were going to shelve it in favor of BL. I hate it when they do this. I’m used to starting out the week watching Supergirl.

I guess we will just have to wait and see.

I meant after its second break in February. I didn’t want to confuse anyone from my previous post.

Here’s one other angle why they might be doing this. The CW has been spending good money on their four shows. They want to bring Black Lightening on line and that would be five of these and that means spending more money! It looks to me like their spreading out these shows so that the finance’s don’t get over whelmed. Since Supergirl probably cost the most to produce they move it out of the way until April and that allows them to afford BL. We’ll have to see how BL plays out. If it does well that could axe one… Read more »

Keep this up they’ll have to rename it the DC comic boook network.

Are the other shows going through shuffleing of their schedules as well? I would think that if they had to end one series it would be arrow, since it’s the longest running show out of all the other shows. That’s just when I think though.

The thing is you don’t want too much time to go by or, they give you one of those re-fresh episodes technically, it is a new episode, but it is comprised of parts of previous episodes up to that point. So you are not learning anything new it’s just a review!
