Supergirl moves to The CW for its second season


That Flash crossover was too successful

Finally! All of my DC Comics superheroes will be one station. The strain of trying to remember two three digit HD channels was beginning to take its toll. Why just last week I left the supermarket with the wrong kid. When trying to keep this many things straight, something usually gives.

But with CBS's announcement that the freshman hit was renewed for a second season, but moving to the CW, all that worry is a thing of the past. Supergirl will join CW DC regulars The Flash, Arrow, and Legends of Tomorrow. It's no marvel cinematic universe, but it's a start. These acronyms are taxing though. 

While Supergirl performed moderately well, averaging nearly 10 million viewers and winning the 42nd People's Choice Award for Favorite New TV Drama, it's per episode budget may have been too costly for the show's modest final (broadcast big 4) numbers.

The move makes sense beyond the finances, too. Two of the three program developers are also responsible for the CW's current slate of DC series. The likelihood for one consistent universe, crossovers happening every other week, and the CW changing it's name to the DC, is high. As is the probability I'll forget to wear pants out of the house tomorrow. I'm actually sensing a Tom Welling revival around the corner.
