"Supergirl" is bound to be a big hit for CBS, and the network is so excited about the new show that it's moving up its premiere date.



The series, which was set to debut sometime in November, will now premiere on Monday, October 26 at 8:30 p.m., before shifting to its permanent timeslot on Monday, November 2 at 8 p.m. That switch is part of a larger strategic scheduling plan, according to CBS brass, meant to expose the largest audiences possible to new programming.



"With many of the biggest hits on primetime television as well as Thursday Night Football, we have the ability to strategically roll out our new season over several weeks this fall," said CBS Entertainment Chairman Nina Tassler in a statement. "We've created a very focused scheduling and promotional environment to provide the best possible launch platform for new and returning series across the schedule."
