"Supergirl: Series May Not Get 2nd Season on CBS Due to Cost and Ratings, Report Says. Negotiations are under way to move the show to The CW, a joint venture between CBS and Warner Bros., which holds the rights to the character."

Mixed feelings, didn't really care for the show to much, but the crossover with the Flash was fun, and if CW gets ahold of it and that means more crossovers, then I'm down.

CW wouldn't be a bad move, the show is good, the script is a little weak at times and then overly flamboyant at other moments. Characters are good, story line isn't that bad the show does have legs it just needs a bit of polish and given what he CW has done when it comes the Flash, Arrow, DC Legends, Supergirl could actually do rather well

Moving it to the CW may be a good move to save it and maybe a writer to add a bit extra to it.

Good God,Finally some sane decision !! This show was destined to doom from the word go,Sloppy all the way,be it the acting,screenplay. I was seriously hoping that it would pickup but sadly it never did.

Glad that they're pulling the plug,Good Riddance !!

It's been slow to improve - moving to the CW would at least give it a chance to properly improve, especially with increased chances for crossovers.

This show definitely doesn't deserve to continue in it's current state. It's script is lack luster and it's a huge mi representation of Supergirls actual character and abilities....

I think transitioning to the CW would be a good move. Allow it to grow in an environment that has already proven successful with superheroes.

i can't see why they would cancel it, but if they are just moving it to cw, since they have done a crossover anyway it would make alot of sense to move to cw, aslong as there is no delay on season 2 premier on the cw, and hopefully they would move them to earth1 somehow to make future crossovers not require the flash to get between them.

I'm really hoping that it moves over to The CW. Even though the show isn't as strong as Arrow or The Flash, if it moves over to The CW, I feel like it could become stronger. They could do more crossovers and maybe with different writers, it would become a better show.

Never thought I'd see the day when moving a show to the CW would make it BETTER. But it is true, the CW has been doing a great job the past several years with their genre shows like Arrow, Flash, and The 100. They have really matured as a network and I can proudly say some of my favorite shows are on the CW.

This show has a lot of potential. But the characters are flat and predictable. And the plots are really just a bunch of tropes strung together. I'm all for having a superhero show with more feeling. But seriously, saving the city with the power of positive thinking? That was a bit much for me. I almost quit watching this show twice.

The only redeeming thing about this show is Supergirl herself (Melissa Benoist). She is beautiful, a great actor, and does an amazing job of portraying a powerful woman. I'd like to see this show get better, but I don't know if can stand to watch it until it does.

@Unknownfear: Because it's bland, cliched, and predictable? They've pulled out every tired old storyline from every superhero show/movie or teen drama in the books. Supergirl learns to be a hero, Supergirl loses her powers for an episode, Supergirl is mind controlled, Supergirl is out of commission so the sidekicks have to save the day, Supergirl is trapped in a dream/hallucination, someone impersonates Supergirl so everyone things she's doing bad stuff, there's a love triangle where the nerdy friend loves the hot main character who in turn doesn't notice and is in love with someone else who has a significant other, etc., etc., etc. Most of the episodes take all the main plot points from some episode of Smallville and just rehash them for Supergirl. Most of the acting is lackluster and the writing is boring. I decided I'd stick with it for a season to see if it got better, and it did slightly, but I still haven't been able to force myself to watch the last few episodes. I thought it was destined to be shortlived from the start, so it will be a mercy killing if they pull the plug. Or if it goes to CW, maybe they can turn it into something good after what they've done with Arrow and the Flash (although I haven't been impressed with Legends of Tomorrow, but 2 out of 3 is OK).

Loved the cast of characters from the beginning and the show got way better near the back half of the season but CBS took way too long to get it there so maybe a channel better at the superhero genre should get it (prob should have got it in the first place) and CW surprisingly is the place for that now so it would totally work. Plus CW is really good at female-led tv shows, especially lately, I think they would be an amazing place for the show to move ♥

I actually wondered from the beginning why this was on CBS and not the CW to begin with. If the show moves, it'll be a HUGE step in the right direction. The CW does a heck of a lot better with these shows, and they're a lot slower to cancel than the major networks-- meaning that when the CW takes on a show, viewers are likely to get a full season and not a mid-season drop.

Move Jane the Virgin or My Crazy Ex-Girlfriend to CBS, if need be. Those are better fits for CBS than the CW.

Oh come on! I just started watching it from the beginning so I can watch the crossovers and was hoping there would be more of them in the future too. It's not good, but come on it's not like Arrow is so much better! Just give me my crossovers please!

I really hope it doesn't get cancelled completely, it may not be the best show out the but I really enjoyed it and it definitely improve at the season progressed, let's hope it does get moved to The CW as I think it has a lot of potential to do really well.

Lol not a surprise. Let's see what categories this show could have filled:
1. Superhero - this is already a super-oversaturated market for new shows that loyal fans of superheroes already struggle with
2. Nerdy Girl - filled by at least one other show (New Girl). Others have tried and failed (i.e. Manhattan Love Story, Don't Trust the B, etc)
3. Pretty Girl Admiration (you know those shows that you just watch for pretty people) - try any other show on Freeform/ABC Family
Doesn't fall into the intelligent mix of shows nor does it fall into sitcom. It was clear from the previews and the INTENSE amount of marketing before this show EVEN AIRED that this was a desperate attempt to stand out that is ultimately failing.
This show was a mess of poor decisions in the first place.

Honestly, I think that sidereel really just needs to stop making predictions like this. They generally have little to no basis in reality and depend solely on whether the editors on the site like the show or not. Supergirl is fine, and I am quite sure it will be back for another season.

Oh thank FSM and His noodly appendages!
Easily the worst tv-series of its genre, and an insult the sci-fi fans everywhere, who frankly deserve better after that god awful warehouse 13 travesty, among other unnatural disasters..
Having Calista "can you say anorexia?" Flockhart as the poster girl of female empowerment is in addition a kick to the the great collective fanny of feminism, or very poor taste satire..
Considering both were the target audiences, the level of failure is simply phenomenal.
