Just saw on Spoiler.tv that SG got a 0.5 rating number which is the lowest it has ever had. Can't ignore that this has really annoyed me and wish it was so much higher. Was it because of Day Light Savings or something? Now all the hateful trolls will come out about it.

Guys the renewal threshold that is used in the cancel/renewal for the gurus that watch such things on the CW is .2 ... Everything is fine. It's not going anywhere for quite awhile....as long as Melissa wants to do it. For ABC, CBS, NBC, Fox etc...it is .7 ....

Supergirl's average thus far is .77 good grief.

If it hadn't gotten early renewal, I might be worried. But at this point, since season 3 is a lock, we don't really have to worry about the rest of the year's ratings. Yeah, I'll probably still check them. But they won't matter in regards to the series future until season 3 hits.

Even then, the show would have to get ridiculously low ratings, next year,to be cancelled, due to the 3rd year rule. Shows in their full 3rd season are almost always renewed for a fourth, because the fourth season is when they hit 88 episodes, which is typically when a show becomes eligible for syndication, which is generally a big money maker. Most studios are willing to pay for that one-more-season, just to hit that syndication number.

Yes, Supergirl had a short 20 episode season, last year. But if CW gives it 23 episodes for seasons 3 and 4, it'll hit that 88 episode point right as season 4 ends.

Bottom line, Supergirl would have to do TERRIBLE to not get it's 4th season. As long as it remains in the top 5 or 6 rated shows on CW, I don't think we have to worry. And as of right now, it is number 2.

This show will be going at least as long as the contracts of the main characters possible 6-7 years. Chill Out.

Last year all of this crying was a waste, this year it is just crazy.

steven32,

Enough of the negative nelly spiel about ratings please. If the show was in trouble, we'd all know about it. The show was renewed early for S3 and the PTB are satisfied that it is worth investing in, so stop worrying and simply enjoy the show.

We went through this ratings rigmarole last season and it proved to be a pointless exercise. With the CW the ratings don't hold as much sway as they do for the major networks (CBS, NBC, ABC, FOX). This is to Supergirl's benefit as the show tends to do well when the L+7 and various media platforms viewership is factored in.

And, the so-called declining ratings numbers are across the board. It's hitting all the major networks. People don't watch TV at the same time, in the same way, or necessarily through cable or OTA (due to digital conversion) anymore. There is on-demand, live streaming, Netflix and time-shifting to consider. There is also traditional DVD sales that tend to boost the bottom line.

So, c'mon and relax. Enjoy the rest of the season and let the media professionals worry about the BTS details.
