According to Variety, Batwoman's pilot episode managed to draw in 1.8 million viewers and garnered a 0.5 rating, with the series outperforming both Legacies and Roswell, New Mexico when they debuted on The CW last year. The title character, played by Ruby Rose, debuted in last year's Arrowverse crossover event, "Elseworlds."
Meanwhile, over on Earth-38, Season 5 of Supergirl opened to a 0.4 rating and 1.3 million viewers. Both of these are considered exceptional in comparison to the previous season of the series, and with these ratings, it appears both shows are off to a strong start this season.
