Note: The ABC affiliate in Phoenix and the NBC affiliate in Baltimore aired the "Monday Night Football" telecast, so ratings for those networks could be subject to greater adjustments than usual in the final nationals.
"Supergirl" scored a 3.2 in adults 18-49 and 12.94 million viewers, both of which are the best for a series premiere this fall. The 3.2 is a little higher than most readers predicted in the guess-the-ratings poll. The premiere also grew in its second half-hour, which is be an encouraging sign, and the audience was fairly well-balanced between men and women.
"The Big Bang Theory" also had its best numbers since the season premiere, while the "Supergirl" lead-in also pushed "Scorpion" slightly higher.
FOX's "Gotham" was up week to week, improving by 0.2 to a 1.5. NBC's "Blindspot" (2.2) also rose a tenth, pending updates. The CW's "Crazy Ex-Girlfriend" and "Jane the Virgin" each fell a tenth.
