November 10, 2015: TV Ratings for "Supergirl" Episode 3Print

Supergirl While the "Supergirl" pilot debuted to great ratings, making it the number one show of the new season amongst adults 18-49, the show's numbers have dipped and dipped again with the second and third episodes.

    According to preliminary national estimates from Nielsen, "Supergirl" averaged a 1.7 rating/5 share in adults 18-49 and 8.2 million viewers overall in the 8 o'clock hour, placing third in the demo among the Big Four networks in the timeslot and not far ahead of Fox's steady but fourth-place "Gotham" (1.5). "Supergirl" was down 23% (0.5) week to week and last night's result was 45% below its premiere score (3.1). CBS did the same 1.7 rating on the comparable night a year ago with comedies "2 Broke Girls" (1.9) and "The Millers" (1.5). Following "Supergirl," "Scorpion" (1.8/5 in 18-49, 9.3 million viewers overall) and "NCIS: Los Angeles" (1.2/4 in 18-49, 7.8 million viewers overall) were about average, with "Scorpion" building on its "Supergirl" lead-in for the first time.

While these statistics don't yet take into account the Live+3 ratings (to see how DVR viewership impacted the scores), it's not unusual for a new series to see a decline over the first few weeks. Let's hope those numbers don't keep dropping over the next few weeks.

November 9, 2015: Charles Roven Talks About "Batman v Superman"Print

Collider.com recently sat down for a chat with Charles Roven, producer on "Man of Steel" and "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice", to discuss the superhero films, the balance of characters, and when we might see a new trailer for the upcoming movie.

Please enable Javascript to watch this video

Batman v Superman Are there too many superhero films and TV shows at the moment?

    "I think like any genre, the movies have to be good and you have to keep the audience engaged. One of the things that we're doing when we're bringing together the DC Justice League Universe is we're creating not only stories that work for the individual film but they have some resonance to the other films that we're doing. And I'm hoping that what's also gonna keep the interest very keen is we're telling hopefully compelling stories. I mean, one of the great things about dealing with superheroes in general, at least from our standpoint, is they're both inspirational and aspirational characters, so you're hoping that the audience is gonna want to be like some of them but you're also hoping that the audience can relate to some of them, that if we make their stories compelling and relatable, interesting and emotional, that you're going to really want to spend more time with them. So you talk about Man of Steel and I felt that Clark's relationship with both of his fathers was pretty emotional and you can relate, certainly people who lost a loved one can relate, and we all have at some point in our lives lost loved ones. So I think even with Batman v Superman we wanna have characters that touch us, and if we can continue to make films like that, the I think they're sort of 'genre proof'".

On "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice".

    "You will definitely understand when you see the movie why we call it Batman v Superman... I'm excited to have people see it. I think it's really a wonderful film. I think Zack [Snyder]'s done an amazing job, all of the actors who are in it, we were so lucky. Just think about the cast that we have, from Ben [Affleck] to Henry Cavill, to Amy [Adams] to Jesse [Eisenberg] to Jeremy [Irons] to Larry [Lawrence] Fishburne. Just amazing, and they all really bring it. Really great. Very happy."

When will we see a new "Batman v Superman" trailer?

    "Honestly, you're going be seeing something very soon... I don't know how you define soon but certainly before the end of the year, how about that?"

November 9, 2015: Peter Facinelli Talks About Playing Maxwell Lord on "Supergirl"Print

Maxwell Lord In an interview with ComicBookResources.com, actor Peter Facinelli talks about being the first actor to portray a live-action Maxwell Lord, what his character's motivations are, and his feelings towards Supergirl. Here are a few excerpts from the interview...

    Between your research and the "Supergirl" scripts, what is your impression of Maxwell Lord?

    Peter Facinelli: In the comics, he's kind of this Trump-esque businessman and very stern. For the TV series, we wanted to make him a different type of businessman. He's more like Steve Jobs, someone who is more sophisticated and smart. He's a Green Tech billionaire, so he's trying to save the planet in a way that's not related to superheroes. He feels humanity should save themselves. There are little differences, but he's less "Forbes" and more "GQ."

    What does Max make of Supergirl's heroics and all the Phantom Zone escapees?

    He looks down on all superheroes or any sort or aliens that are interfering with the human race. He believes humanity needs to save themselves. That's one of his messages, that we shouldn't have any outside interferences. When you rely on a superhero too much, what happens when they are not there one day? For him, he admires the power that they have. He wishes he could harness that power in some way - not for evil, but to save the human race.

    At the end of the day, do you view Maxwell Lord as good or evil?

    There's a fine line between good and evil. He doesn't purposely do evil acts. In his mind, he does things for good. Sometimes you have to do bad things to get there. Even when you are at war, sometimes you have to sacrifice one for the greater good of many. That's where his mindset is. He's not a Lex Luthor, selfishly trying to take over the world. In his righteous mind, he's doing good.

November 9, 2015: Will National City (and TV Audiences) Embrace Supergirl?Print

Supergirl Ahead of tonight's third episode of "Supergirl", Executive Producer Andrew Kreisberg spoke with EW.com about how Kara is trying to win over people both within the fictional world of National City, as well as audiences watching the show on CBS.

    "Her reputation on the show mirrors her reputation to the audience," executive producer Andrew Kreisberg tells EW. "There's some people who came to the show with a little bit of [apprehension]. 'What's this going to be about? Can she do it? Is she going to be as strong as Superman? Can she do all the things he can do?' As the audience falls ever more in love with Melissa, Melissa's portrayal, and the show itself, so too does National City fall in love with its hero. She really becomes a symbol of hope and justice just as her cousin has."

    With that said, Supergirl's meteoric rise will be a departure from what fans of the Berlanti-verse have seen with Arrow and The Flash. "It's interesting for us because it's the first time we've really had such a real public superhero right from the get-go, and dealing with that instant fame and the impact on the city is part of the series," Kreisberg says.

Read the entire article at EW.com.

The fact is, according to an article published by USA Today, "Supergirl" is indeed winning over audiences... and it's an even split between males and females.

    The latest comics-inspired TV series has an audience that's nearly evenly split between men and women. That's a rarity in the male-dominated superhero genre. By contrast, 60% of the adult TV audience for CW's The Flash is male, as are 57% of viewers for Fox's Gotham, which airs opposite Supergirl (Mondays, 8 p.m. ET/PT).

    Supergirl herself may be 24, but Supergirl also attracts the oldest audience among costumed crime-fighters, with a median age of 56, compared with 41.9 for The Flash and about 47 for Gotham and ABC's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. That's likely a function of the show's home on senior-friendly CBS, where it's the youngest-skewing and most evenly gender-split drama. (About 54% of prime-time TV watchers are women.)

While viewership did drop by nearly 30% between the pilot episode and the show's second outing, "Supergirl" was still the No. 1 ranked superhero series on TV.

November 8, 2015: Neal Adams Talks "Coming of the Supermen"Print

Neal Adams "The Coming of the Supermen" by Neal Adams is a six-issue miniseries that will (according to the man himself) feature "all of Jack Kirby's characters fighting Superman; beginning with Kalibak." Originally scheduled to be released starting in December, the series is now scheduled to start in February 2016.

13thDimension.com caught up with Neal Adams to get a little bit of a further insight into "The Coming of the Supermen". Here's an excerpt from the interview...

    I'll give you enough of the story. If you go on the Internet and you kind of explore the stupid Internet - we call it the stupid Internet because there's lots of stupid things that happen. But there's these geek freaks who not only think that there's a hollow earth but also think that there's a planet on the other side of the sun that we can't see because it's on the other side of the sun. It tracks our orbit.

    Well, if I were Superman, and I had New Krypton and I wanted to settle it somewhere, I would settle it there. 'Cause I don't want those guys to come here necessarily because they're super creatures, but on the other hand I want 'em close enough that I can know what's going on. Darkseid might think the same thing. Because we don't really know where Apokolips is or where New Genesis is. It's kind of this nebulous place. But if it's on the other side of the sun, that would be close enough and still far away enough for that to be an interesting place. What if Superman settles New Krypton on the other side of the sun and then Darkseid comes and decides to settle there, too.
