“Supergirl” got off to a solid start in its new home on The CW Monday night. The show, as expected, scored a lower 18-49 rating than its weakest outing on CBS last season, but its 1.1 in the demographic makes it the network’s No. 2 show early on, behind “The Flash,” and is a big upgrade over the time period last season.

Also Monday, “Timeless” fell some in its second week, dropping three tenths of a point to a 1.5 on NBC. “The Voice” (2.9) is even with last week’s preliminary number (it adjusted up to 3.0 in the finals).

“The Big Bang Theory” (3.3) and “Kevin Can Wait” (2.1) were each off a tenth from last week, while “Scorpion” fell two tenths to a series-low 1.3. On the mild upside, “2 Broke Girls” premiered to a 1.7, slightly ahead of the 1.6 it posted for last season’s premiere.

“Gotham” and “Lucifer” each scored a 1.1 for FOX. ABC’s numbers are subject to change, but currently “Dancing With the Stars” (1.6) is off 0.1 and “Conviction” (0.9) is even with last week.

Network averages:

Adults 18-49 rating/share 2.4/8 1.9/6 1.4/5 1.1/3 0.7/2
Total Viewers (millions) 9.61 8.27 8.52 3.53 1.93


Late-night metered market ratings to come.

Note: An earlier version of this story incorrectly stated the adults 18-49 rating for “Dancing With the Stars.” It was 1.6, as now reflected above.

Rating: Estimated percentage of the universe of TV households (or other specified group) tuned to a program in the average minute. Ratings are expressed as a percent.
Fast Affiliate Ratings: These first national ratings are available at approximately 11 a.m. ET the day after telecast. The figures may include stations that did not air the entire network feed, as well as local news breaks or cutaways for local coverage or other programming. Fast Affiliate ratings are not as useful for live programs and are likely to differ significantly from the final results, because the data reflect normal broadcast feed patterns. 
Share (of Audience): 
The percent of households (or persons) using television who are tuned to a specific program, station or network in a specific area at a specific time. 
Time Shifted Viewing:
 Program ratings for national sources are produced in three streams of data – Live, Live +Same-Day and Live +7 Day. Time-shifted figures account for incremental viewing that takes place with DVRs. Live+SD includes viewing during the same broadcast day as the original telecast, with a cut-off of 3 a.m. local time when meters transmit daily viewing to Nielsen for processing. Live +7 ratings include  viewing that takes place during the 7 days following a telecast.

    […] 3.02 million viewers tuned in last night to catch the Girl of Steel and her Super Crew, and they weren’t disappointed: after a summer of speculation about Superman’s role in the coming season, whether Callista Flockhart would be back to reprise her role as Kara’s ice-cold (but secretly supportive) boss Cat Grant, and the four-way crossover between Supergirl and the CW’s stable of superhero shows The Flash, Arrow, and Legends of Tomorrow, the CW delivered a strong premiere that left most fans satisfied that Kara and friends are in good hands.
