‘Supergirl,’ ‘The Flash’ EP Shoots Down Crossover Rumors.

Despite the recent success of the second annual The Flash/Arrow crossover event on The CW, there are no plans for CBS’ freshman DC Comics swing Supergirl to share any characters or storylines with any of The CW’s shows.The episode featured the Green Arrow, the Flash, Speedy, Hawkman, Hawkgirl, the Black Canary and Diggle (and his Magneto-esque helmet), and a battle with a villain (Vandal Savage) who will be linked to all (eventually) three of the network’s superhero-inspired shows.NBC dominated Tuesday’s ratings race behind “The Voice,” “Chicago Fire” and a strong third-week delivery for “Chicago Med,” while it remained slow going for ABC’s “The Muppets,” which hit another low.

We’ve known about the most recent DC superhero series, Legends of Tomorrow since earlier this year, and now we’re just over a month away from the premiere. When The Hollywood Reporter asked The Flash and Supergirl showrunner Andrew Kreisberg about recent reports claiming otherwise, he immediately shot them down. “There’s always those late nights, delirious, semi-high on pizza where you’re like, ‘You know what would be really cool? But it wasn’t the survival of our heroes against a baddie who seemingly can’t be destroyed that stood out when the dust literally settled, as Vandal Savage is pulverized by episode’s end. Also of note, CBS holiday favorite “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer” again shined brightly and CW’s “The Flash” had another solid performance with the front half of its crossover storyline with “Arrow.” According to preliminary national estimates from Nielsen, NBC opened Tuesday with the night’s top-rated program, “The Voice” (2.6/9 in 18-49, 12.0 million viewers overall).

If …,’ ” Kreisberg said. “But right now there is no legitimate actual plan to bring [The Flash’s] Cisco [Carlos Valdes] onto Supergirl or to bring [Supergirl’s] Winn [Jeremy Jordan] onto Legends [of Tomorrow]. The poster features Ray Palmer/The Atom, who Team Arrow rescued and returned to his regular size in Arrow season 4, episode 6; Sara Lance/White Canary, who was resurrected via the Lazarus Pit and had her soul restored in Arrow season 4, episodes 3 and 5; Rip Hunter, who hasn’t been introduced yet; Captain Cold and Heat Wave, the former who had an episode exploring his backstory on The Flash season 2, episode 3; Jax Jackson and Martin Stein/Firestorm, who joined forces for the first time in The Flash season 2, episode 4; and Hawkman and Hawkgirl, whose backstory was explored in the Arrow/Flash crossover episodes. “When heroes alone are not enough… the world needs legends.

Tuesday’s The Flash crossover (3.9 million, 1.4 rating) also did well, and on Monday The CW’s struggling new dramedy Crazy Ex-Girlfriend (1 million, 0.3) had its biggest audience of the season. It seemed to take advantage of the absence of “NCIS: New Orleans” in the timeslot, spiking an especially large 28% in total viewers; it becomes the first new drama series this fall to draw a larger overall audience in week three than with its premiere. Having seen the future, one he will desperately try to prevent from happening, time-traveling rogue Rip Hunter is tasked with assembling a disparate group of both heroes and villains to confront an unstoppable threat — one in which not only is the planet at stake, but all of time itself. And quite frankly, just making the Arrow-verse, which is what we call Legends, Flash and Arrow work and then making Supergirl work, it’s enough of a challenge without having to add a fourth player.” While all The Flash, Arrow and Supergirl showrunners have provided similar answers to this question before, it’s interesting to note that Kreisberg notes they haven’t even started to explore the possibility of whether they can make a crossover work between two networks.

Greg Berlanti (“The Flash,” “Supergirl,” “Arrow”) serves as executive producer alongside Marc Guggenheim (Eli Stone, Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters), Andrew Kreisberg (“The Flash,” “Warehouse 13”) and Sarah Schechter (“The Flash,” Pan). They’re very inventive about what they can and will do.” “That was sort of news to me,” Kreisberg told THR at the time. “We’re obviously very excited and gratified by that. In late-night, NBC’s “Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” (1.1) topped the combined preliminary 18-49 averages of ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live” (0.5) and CBS’ repeat of “Late Show with Stephen Colbert” (0.3). And a repeat of the Peacock’s 12:35 a.m. talker “Late Night with Seth Meyers” (0.5) matched “Kimmel” despite starting an hour later and crushed head-to-head CBS entry “Late Late Show with James Corden” (0.1). But then Savage killed everyone, and as soon as that happened, and Barry outruns the attack to get back to the past, you just knew Olicity would be back with a vengeance.

Now we’re back to Felicity’s not knowing about Oliver’s son, and it looks as if Oliver will honor the mother of the child’s request to keep Oliver’s paternity a secret.
