Ratings: ‘Supergirl’ Soars to Its Biggest CW Episode Yet

“Supergirl” just flew to its most-watched episode on the CW to-date — but Melissa Benoist had some help from her DC Universe friends.

The former CBS show’s sophomore fall finale last night marked Part 1 of the week’s four-way crossover with “Arrow,” “The Flash” and “DC’s Legends of Tomorrow.” That combination led CW to its most-watched Monday in nearly seven years.

Overall, NBC topped primetime, thanks to “The Voice.” ABC’s “CMA Country Christmas” special carried the Disney broadcaster to No. 2.

NBC was first in ratings with a 1.7 rating/6 share in the advertiser-coveted 18-49 demographic and in total viewers with an average of 8.1 million, according to preliminary numbers. “The Voice” at 8 p.m. scored a 2.0/6 and 9.7 million viewers.

ABC was second in ratings with a 1.2/4 and in viewers with 6.8 million. “CMA Country Christmas” at 8 earned a 1.3/4 and 7.8 million viewers.
