CBS’s new Supergirl series will here faster than a speeding bullet. Well, maybe not faster than a speeding bullet, but we will get a chance to see its pilot episode a week earlier than originally scheduled. A special series debut of Supergirl is scheduled for October 26th at 8:30pm following a new episode of one of the networks biggest hits, The Big Bang Theory. This strategy helped to successfully launch the network’s series, Scorpion, the year prior. Supergirl’s normal hour long slot time of 8pm on Monday’s will start on November 2.
After The Big Bang helped get new Monday drama Scorpion off to a flying start last fall, CBS will try to replicate the success with its latest Monday drama addition, Supergirl. The comic book drama will have a special premiere at 8:30 PM on Oct. 26 behind an original Big Bang before it moves to its regular 8 PM slot the following week.
