Don't Miss: This How to find Fingerlings in Stock

Going into last season, everyone thought that Supergirl would take off far more than it did. In fact, there were so many articles and interviews with the show's stars, that it looked like were going to enter the next great era for superhero shows.

When Supergirl, which stars Melissa Benoist in the titular role, debuted to 13 million people, everyone was pretty ecstatic. It was a female superhero that was getting a lot of views and a lot of attention. But then something happened, and people stopped watch the show. By the season finale, about half of who started watching the show had stopped.

Now, while that is still a respectable number, it really isn't what people were hoping for. CBS spends over $3 million an episode for the show, so it is hard to justify spending that much on an audience of just over 7 million.

But with two weeks to go before CBS announces the fall schedule, they haven't even revealed if they are going to be renewing it. Sources at Geeky Rant, however, say that CBS doesn't want to pull the plug on the show just yet.

One thought is that Supergirl would do well on The CW, given that its lineup is already filled with superhero shows. However, the show would have to lessen the budget dramatically in order to be worthwhile. Then the problem would be whether or not the show looks cheap next to higher production value shows like The Flash or Arrow.

The question remains: is it worth having a second season of a show if it isn't quite up to the standards it used to be?
