But the big news is the Eye’s decision to launch Supergirl after The Big Bang Theory in late October. Greg Berlanti’s anticipated drama will debut on Monday, Oct. 26 at 8:30/7:30c after an original episode of Big Bang. It will then move into its regular Monday-at-8/7c slot on Nov. 2.
There is a lot of good news here even for one little caption.
One, CBS must have a lot of faith in the show or really wants to promote it by leading in with a new Big Bang Theory. Love that show or not, it is a huge hit and will have plenty of viewers. That sort of lead in will hopefully bring in more viewers.
Second, it is simply earlier! I don't know if I could wait until November.
Unfortunately, I thought the time slot of 8:30 might mean that the premiere would be 90 minutes long, expanding what I can only imagine is a somewhat compressed pilot. It looks instead like it will still be an hour long.
I did love the official tweet from CBS with Melissa Benoist flashing a winning smile and an S-Shield.
