Supergirl is looking to firmly establish itself as the freshman superhero drama and has received an order for 9 additional scripts from CBS.

This will bring the episodes this season up to 20 which is less than the more usual 22 or 24 but understandable when you realize that Supergirl premiered a month behind most other major Fall premieres.

The series is also the most watched premiere of the season as well as tying with NBC’s Blindspot for highest rating. Note there is a difference between sheer numbers watching a show and the ratings for that show which usually pertain to set age groups.
