    Default CBS still won't commit to another season of Supergirl

    Time to start worrying? SG was always an "odd duck" for CBS' audience demo and corporate direction.

    From what little I've made myself watch this show it is a good show.

    the ratings aren't high enough. Unless it moves to a new network it's done. And I don't see another network taking it unless Netflix or Amazon works out some deal

    Why can't Supergirl move to CW? All CW DC shows were renewed. Will Flash save Supergirl in the ratings Monday?

    article you may find interesting

    It's not as simple as just moving a show to another network. I mean it's possible, but CW already has established shows and time-slots. Super girls budget is probably a little higher than some of the CW shows. And I'm guessing there are some other politics going on internally.

    I feel like if Supergirl was going to be on the CW it would have been initially. I don't see CW taking it now, but I could be wrong.

    no CBS announced it's renewals and Supergirl was left out, which is not the same as being cancelled, but doesn't bode well. The shows ratings aren't stellar but not so bad its un-renewable

    I've never watched Supergirl, but from what I can tell, it really REALLY wants to be a Superman show. I'm glad people enjoy it, but if the show continues, I'd definitely like it to stop ripping off Superman trademarks (racing the Flash, the Man who has Everything story, etc).

    I thought this show had been renewed. Oh well. I bet after the crossover with The Flash, CBS will renew Supergirl for season 2.

    Gotham got renewed, and Gotham airs at the same time as SG. Do you think that's effecting SG's ratings?

    you should probably watch the show before jumping to assumptions. It's a Supergirl show and its not trying to be anything else.

    This has been happening a lot though. A number of things tied to the Superman mythos, have found their way into other characters sandboxes. Cyborg Superman, Mongul, Black Mercy and Sun-Eater found their ways to the Green Lantern titles; Pre-New 52. Cyborg Superman, Kryptonite Man, several Superman story lines (for the SG tv show), Silver Banshee, Insect Queen and Superwoman, have all found their way in the Supergirl titles; Pre and Post New 52.

    I fully agree. Interesting how all these well liked aspects of Supermans mythos show up pretty much everywhere... except for actual Superman stories. And people wonder why the character is struggling, everything that made Superman enjoyable is seemingly off limits to the guy!

    After a rocky start the show has been so enjoyable. If CBS cancels it after one season it would be ridiculous. They put it up against Gotham and Monday Night Football and can't figure out why they ratings aren't better. Freakin network execs.
