Supergirl Had Fall’s Biggest Premiere Audience, Rated Highly with Male Teen Viewers
The ratings for last night’s Supergirl premiere were, fittingly, very super.
According to Entertainment Weekly, the series set “a fall new series record of 14 million viewers and a 3.2 rating among adults 18–49.” Supergirl was the second-highest-rated series on TV last night, following The Big Bang Theory.
TV Guide’s Michael Schneider writes that, of the series’ teen viewers, more were male than female:
Interesting stat: #Supergirl did better with male teens (1.7) than female teens (1.4). Either way, No. 1 b’cast show with teens (1.6) Monday

Although it remains to be seen if Supergirl‘s ratings will continue to soar up, up, and away as the series progresses, the excitement over the premiere, despite (or perhaps because?) of the pilot leak back in May, seems to me to indicate an appetite for more female-focused shows like this one.
