If you go to Benoist's IMDB page and look up Supergirl, you'll see that her appearances are Pilot and episode 2. It also says that in pilot she's called Kara/Supergirl and in episode 2 she's called Linda/Supergirl.

Shauna Duggins is listed as her stunt double, not the stuntwoman listed posted earlier. Duggins is even taller than Benoist and was Jennifer Garners double on Alias and A Palicki's double for the WW pilot a few years back. The other, shorter stuntwoman may be for young Kara.

Where does the Variety Article say that? variety.com/2015/tv/news/pilot-buzz-supergirl-cbs-1201481623/ if that is the source article, then is says that CW will premier a trailer for the spin off show, not Supergirl.

THR just released some interesting commentary that Supergirl might not even wait till Fall --- it might be released as a Summer series:

www.hollywoodreporter.com/live-feed/10-t...-score-series-792670

I frankly this is just speculation, as I think logistically it would be too hard/expensive to produce episodes for a summer run, given that it is already May (well, at least it will be May in 3 hours here)

I think there perhaps thinking of *Next* Summer.

Which you know might be frustrating for fans...but well will give them more time for effects. I think i have said otherwise, i would have a hard time imagining they could have something ready by october for a regular weekly run.

Though i will say from the article i am not entirely sure of the logic on it, especially pairing with shows like Under the Dome, i doubt is going to go to 2016. Doing a superhero show to compete in time with superhero movies may not really work well..but will see. this does sound like there going to do something with it.

Also this is not an exageration to say this is the most clearly anticiapted show of 2015 season by a long shot. Thats a long time to wait for Supergirl.

I frankly do not wish to wait till next summer.

Let's stick with a fall release.
October would be nice, after the September bloodbath of failed shows are presented.

I don't think it'll be ready for Summer 2015 and I really don't think they'd consider summer 2016. Why would your arguably "hottest" pilot (based on buzz/media) be shown at the upfronts, only to be put on the back burner for over a year? And you mentioned Dome and the other shows possibly not being around in 2016 which is probably more "probable" than "possible" -- that would also infer that they meant THIS summer.

As for competing with superhero movies, that is the landscape these days -- summer, fall, winter, or spring. Besides, I don't think they'd be competing directly with them.

I'm pretty confident they'll have it on the Fall schedule and would personally love them to pair it with Big Bang in the 9pm slot for that night.

That sounds like a pretty great idea. Go Build a Geek Night or something.

And as an update Yahoo has a picture of Supergirl in her costume on there front page for like the fifth or sixth time here to represent the entire new pilot season-but i think there getting that from variety, which is doing the same.

Well it is a show thats under the radar.

I finally saw Melissa in Whiplash, and
Warning: Spoiler!

After seeing her in this (I'm not a follower of Glee), I think she certainly has the chops and the looks for the role!

More pilot buzz from Deadline, reporting that Supergirl might be sinking into the 8pm Sunday night time slot. Mixed feelings on this....

On the one hand, it wouldn't be competing against CW's heroes for nightly honours and would also follow after 60 Minutes and their huge user base, hopefully giving it a ratings boost. On the downside, it would be head to head with Sunday Night Football in the Fall.

I don't think there so much concerned with 60 minutes. Quite frankly that may get them a few or two in the first week but i doubt there going to get many to lookloos.

Right now in the slot is the kind of underperforming Madame Secretary, but at 9 is the hit the Good Wife. The theme of the block i would argue is "powerful women". But one is a political drama, the other is a legal drama...and this is presumibily well an action show with i am guessing a younger base.

Which maybe the logic-8 on sundays is traditionally where you put shows which you think are going to attract children audiences, which you know maybe fair. There going agianst not the superhero block but "Once Upon a Time" which is a proven hit, if perhaps on the end of its run.But man just like the cosby show there going agianst the Simpsons

As for Football. Yes it competes, but i would also suspect that its tricky that there going to get anything that early in the season ready.

This isn't the end of the world.

I'm surprised that discussions of TV slots and competing shows is still a big deal. Even if SG is on Sunday evenings, I'll still watch football. That's what my DVR and Netflix and iTunes is for. I never EVER watch anything except NFL football live, and that's because I like to carry on a text message conversation with my kids during the game. Have to be live for that. I can't stand commercials (OK, except during the Superbowl), so live TV is an agony for me.

I suspect a large percentage of viewing is done via DVR and the Net, watching when its convenient, not when the show is playing. So they could put SG on at 0300 late Sunday night/Monday morning and I'd be just as happy.

On a related note, if TV shows are paid for by commercials and people only watch commercials during live TV, then we are all doomed. I can't imagine that archaic style of entertainment funding surviving another ten years (other than for large sporting events that involve betting -- kind of need real time for that to be exciting).

I'm much more into the Netflix (think House of Cards) or HBO and STARZ styles of program development.

My big dream is an HBO-style Supergirl show, written for mature audiences ala Game of Thrones or even Outlander on STARZ. That would be amazing.

Trying to fit SG into the ABC audience (where prescription drug commercials are the BIG seller) is going to end badly. The demographic that watches 60 Minutes and Madam Secretary is completely alien to me and frankly disgusting. (Apologies if I've insulted anyone, but I feel strongly about this).

I think it something like 10% online but the number raises every year.

It should be noted Network Tv Ratings as a percentage of the US population around about 1/10 of what they used to be even 15 or 20 years ago. Cable eats up a lot and well Netflix movie ever..and sites like this(i could be watching TV right now!!).

However it exists becuse Broadcast Ads are still the best way of advertising a lot of products so, they still like it even if the eyeballs are shrinking-whats most likely going to happen Shadar is that your going to start seeing them on Stuff online more and more frequently and not just the same 5 ADs. Oh and Adblocking technology is going to get eroded by better players. Which is what it is.

Oh as for A mature rated HBO? show. You Never know. Powers is kind of trying that right now, but i don't think its what you mean. However if its a sucess, maybe someone will play around with it.

(though as a side note: I am suprised they never tried that on Cinemax-which is owned by Time Warner and thus DC)

I wasn't thinking just online, but DVR. I program my DiecTV DVR to pick up the shows I like and watch them when I wish. Their original air times are irrelevant. I'm betting a lot more than 10% of the people do that.
