"Supergirl" Heads to The CW for Season 2

"Supergirl" has been renewed for a second season, but it won't be returning to CBS. According to Variety, the show will get its second season, but only after a move to The CW.

During its first season on CBS, "Supergirl" maintained a 2.5 rating in adults 18-49 as well as 10.03 million viewers on average. Despite being the network's top-rated rookie drama, it still fell behind comedies in the Monday night timeslot.

Thanks to the move, "Supergirl" will join her superhero compatriots "Arrow," "The Flash" and "DC's Legends of Tomorrow," which all air on The CW. Earlier this year, "Supergirl" crossed over with "The Flash," scoring a 2.5 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 9.6 million total viewers in L+7.

Last week, a report surfaced claiming that CBS wants "Supergirl" to return, but the $3 million per-episode budget isn't justified by the show's ratings after the show debuted strong back in late October, but the ratings fell by half by the end of the season.

An interesting ordeal...

I got a call today from the Norfolk Botanical Gardens informing me that my Garden Stars class was cancelled this evening. The woman was very nice, but I informed her that I had no idea what she was talking about. She stated that on April 11th I purchased three tickets for the Garden Stars class tonight. She had my name, phone number and address based on my membership. My confusion continued as I asked her if I paid for these tickets. She said that I had paid $85 in cash! I found this quite interesting, but informed her that I had never purchased these tickets and clearly someone had used my membership number to get tickets. She told me that regardless they have to send me a refund check. I made $85!

*Thankfully, the membership card isn't linked to any credit card or money of any kind. It just provides discounts and access to the garden.

What an odd thing...
