Female superheroes are popular after all!
And water, of course, is wet. The ratings for Supergirl came in, delivering a fall new series record of 14 million viewers. It beat out Blindspot, Minority Report, and Dancing With the Stars (via). Of course, this was just the first test. There's always drop off after a season premiere, so the next few weeks will show us just how much staying-power Kara has.
How do fans feel?
Like we can fly!
Let's face it, when the pilot leaked over the summer, we all watched it. We all knew that this show was something special. The special effects were really good for television. For an episode that had a lot of backstory to address, the plot was engaging. And most importantly: this is a show about a girl. This isn't a case of writing and man and then changing the gender of the character (like Alien). Nor is this a hyper-feminine rom-com. This is a story about a young woman struggling to find her place in the world. And that's awesome.
