The CW’s “Supergirl” took its final flight last night, drawing 545,000 total viewers across two separate hour-long episodes. Last week’s lone episode had 386,000 viewers.

That makes the growth 41% — but kind of more like in a double bound than a single one.

Led by “The Voice,” NBC finished first in the adults 18-49 demo on Tuesday, when CBS drew the most overall viewers with a trio of its “FBI” shows.

NBC was first in ratings with a 0.6 rating in the advertiser-coveted 18-49 demographic and second in total viewers with an average of 4.8 million, according to preliminary numbers. “The Voice” at 8 p.m. put up a 0.8 rating and 6.7 million total viewers. At 9, “La Brea” posted a 0.6 rating and 4.6 million total viewers. “New Amsterdam” at 10 received a 0.4 rating and 3.1 million total viewers.

Fox and ABC tied for third in ratings, both with a 0.4. Fox was third in total viewers with 2.11 million, ABC was fourth with 2.08 million.
