Die-hard fans of CBS’ Mike & Molly not withstanding, many wondered how long the series could keep Melissa McCarthy to a series regular commitment, given her full-fledged movie career. That question may have answered itself however, as a series star claims that CBS halved the Season 6 order, with intent to cancel Mike & Molly thereafter.

CBS’ Supergirl has had a cryptic relationship with other DC superheroes at best, but it seems a top-tier Justice League-r has been right under our noses all along. Find out who among the regular cast has been masquerading as a DC villain, only for tonight’s “Human For a Day” to reveal them as an out-of-this-world DC hero!
Long before Supergirl premiered, CBS cast doubt on the likelihood of Kara crossing over with Arrow or The Flash just yet, an idea recently revisited when executive producer Greg Berlanti shot down a rumored Barry Allen appearance. Some fans had hope that the timeline-hopping Legends of Tomorrow might make crossover potential a bit easier, but producer Andrew Kreisberg isn’t sure they’re even legally allowed to play with Supergirl.
Arrow Season 4 ticked up a few notches in its choice of directors, most recently with stunt coordinator James Bamford, and prior to that, Punisher: War Zone director Lexi Alexander. Now, Supergirl will follow in the footsteps of her DC predecessor, as Alexander next heads to National City to launch Kara up, up and away.
There’s no escape from all the DC TV crossover of late, with Flash-es and Arrow-s turning into Legends, even as Supergirl remains isolated at CBS for another seven episodes. We’ve heard what bosses have to say on bringing Kara Zor-El into Barry and Oliver’s world, and vice-versa, but despite a recent rumor, executive producers assure that Supergirl won’t be meeting The Flash just yet.
Whether or not CBS’ Supergirl has soared into the hit CBS was expecting, or bizarrely begun leaning on its Superman connections too much, there was little likelihood Kara would be sent back to The Phantom Zone just yet. CBS has officially picked up a full season of Supergirl, though perhaps not as full as some hope.
CBS' Supergirl has maintained a notably odd relationship with Superman, over-alluding to him in the pilot without speaking a name, only to feature a faceless fly-by and emoji chat as early as episode 3. Now, the DC drama will take its next Kryptic step, casting a younger Man of Steel for an appearance that ... might make your head hurt.
Stephen Colbert was among the first late-night programs to express his emotions over the Friday Paris attacks, tagging a brief announcement (sans audience) at the close of his Friday Late Show. The Monday outing went far more in depth however, staging a heartfelt tribute as Colbert urged viewers to show support in whatever way possible, either french fries or Ratatouille.
The tragic Friday events of Paris’ terrorist attacks made impact on a number of TV series, including SNL’s sympathetic cold open, while CBS will next alter its programming out of respect. Both Supergirl and NCIS: LA will shuffle their episode orders, the Monday episodes of which featured content disturbingly similar to the awful attacks.
Before Supergirl took flight with her October premiere, CBS offered up a sneak peek of Salem star Iddo Goldberg in the role of notable DC android Red Tornado, to mixed reception at best. Now, with November 30 installment “Red Faced” inching closer, Supergirl shows off a much better look at the character in action with new photos, as well as a synopsis.
