‘Supergirl’ Ratings Hit New Low; ‘Gotham’ Ties Previous Low

Supergirl Melissa Benoist

Both Supergirl and Gotham returned from extended hiatuses this week and the FOX DC show fared only slightly better in the ratings than The CW DC show did.

On Supergirl, Season 2 returned with an emphasis on Kara’s (Melissa Benoist) life as a reporter and her burgeoning friendship with Lena Luthor (Katie McGrath) while Gotham saw Edward Nygma (Cory Michael Smith) embrace the The Riddler identity.

According to TV By The Numbers, Supergirl only hit a 0.5 demo rating and 1.80 million views, which is a new series low. On the other hand, Gotham hit a 1.0 rating and 2.99 million viewers, which ties its previous low.

Next week on Supergirl, Alex (Chyler Leigh) finds herself in trouble and Kara and Maggie (Floriana Lima) must join forces to save her in “Alex.” Over on Gotham, The Court of Owls is up to no good as Ben McKenzie (Jim Gordon) directs in “These Delicate and Dark Obsessions.”

“Alex” – (8:00-9:00 p.m. ET) (Content Rating TBD) (HDTV)

ALEX IS KIDNAPPED – Alex (Chyler Leigh) is kidnapped and the kidnapper threatens to kill her unless Supergirl (Melissa Benoist) releases a notorious criminal from prison. Supergirl and Maggie (Floriana Lima) have always had different approaches to apprehending criminals but this time they must work together to save Alex. Meanwhile, Rhea (guest star Teri Hatcher) has an interesting proposal for Lena (Katie McGrath). Rob Greenlea directed the episode written by Eric Carrasco & Greg Baldwin (#219).
