Sure, Kara Danvers might be able to cook meat with her eyes, punch through the roof of a car without blinking and freeze anything in her path just by breathing on it — but she’s still just your average feminist.
In Monday’s installment of Supergirl, Kara was forced to learn a tough lesson — that getting angry in public isn’t so easy when you’re a woman — while simultaneously facing down the newest threat to National City. Let’s recap the details of “Red-Faced.’

Supergirl will remain airborne through (at least) Spring 2016.
CBS on Monday ordered an additional seven episodes of Greg Berlanti’s super-fun DC drama, bringing its Season 1 total to 20 episodes. Although that’s technically two episodes shy of a traditional full-season order, CBS is calling it a “full season” pickup.

Kirsten Vangsness is preparing to walk down the aisle! E! News has confirmed that the Criminal Minds star is engaged to her actor/writer boyfriend Keith Hanson, who popped the question to his leading lady two weeks ago at the Redbury hotel in Hollywood in front of some of the couple's nearest and dearest. Hanson presented his now-fiancée with a gorgeous emerald ring that included diamonds for an extra sparkle. "He's the perfect partner for me, and I feel like we evolve," the actress told People, who first reported the story. "When you're so into somebody and you get to just mush up next to them—that's the best part of it." Although these two lovebirds just got »
ABC’s rookie drama “Quantico,” already a big gainer in delayed viewing ratings, saw its largest lift yet in Nielsen’s “live plus-3” estimates last week and hit a four-week high overall.

The agents were called in to help consult on a case involving abduction and murder on Criminal Minds season 11's ?Awake.? The condition of the first victim's body led the team to think the UnSub derived pleasure from torturing his victims But as the body count rose, the profilers realized the UnSub was searching for something very personal and would go to extreme measures to find it. This included keeping his victims awake to both enhance their pain and combat his own. For more on what happened in episode 8, read the recap. »
As it nears its fall finale, Fox’s “Empire” picked up some ratings steam last night, rising from last week and topping the night’s next highest-rated performer in the young adults demo — ABC’s “Modern Family” — by more than 50%. “Modern” and the rest of the ABC comedy block had a good night with Thanksgiving episodes, posting some of their best numbers since September.
According to preliminary “live plus same-day” nationals from Nielsen, “Empire” averaged a 4.4 rating/14 share in adults 18-49 and 11.2 million viewers overall, up 5% (0.2) from last week’s season low and expected to again finish as the week’s No. 1 broadcast entertainment series (and No. 2 overall to AMC’s “The Walking Dead”). It’s a good sign for the soap, though an episode scheduled for next week on lighter-watched Thanksgiving Eve could thwart its momentum; the show will wrap the first half of its season on Dec. 2 and »

Well, Criminal Minds may only be eight episodes into the season, but "Awake" earns itself a spot likely near the top of the list of most disturbing UnSubs of the season. What this UnSub does to his victims is awful, but it's hard not to feel a bit sorry for him because what triggered him is heartbreaking. When two people are abducted, the Phoenix division requests the Bau's help, and considering what this UnSub does to his victims, it's the right call.
Meanwhile, Garcia's life is drastically changing now that they know that she's the Dirty Dozen and likely a target of that network of hitmen.
Recently, CBS delivered the new, official synopsis/spoilers for their upcoming "Criminal Minds" episode 9 of season 11. The episode is entitled, "Internal Affairs," and it turns out that we're going to see some very interesting stuff take place as an underground internet drug syndicate becomes the main focus of the Bau team in their latest investigation, and more. In the new, 9th episode press release: When The Bau Looks Into The Disappearances Of DEA Agents, An Underground Internet Drug Syndicate Becomes The Investigation's Focus, On "Criminal Minds," Wednesday, Dec. 2. Press release number 2: After two undercover DEA agents are murdered and a third goes missing, the Bau will join the Nsa to investigate whether an underground Internet drug syndicate is involved.

Last week was another good one in primetime for football and zombies, but it also featured strong tune-in for a pair of primary debates — including record-setting numbers for Fox Business Network — as well as inflated news ratings for coverage of the Paris terrorist attacks.
It was a notable weekend in primetime for CBS News, whose Democratic debate from Des Moines, Iowa, averaged 8.55 million viewers — below the year’s prior debates but a good number for a Saturday night and well above what comparable debates have done in prior election cycles. And on Sunday, “60 Minutes” racked up its largest audience in a year (18.13 million) for a telecast that featured a report from Paris, an interview with new Speaker of the House Paul Ryan and a look at the state of concussion safety and science in football. Excluding NFL action, the newsmagazine was the most-watched primetime program of the week.

Jj returned from maternity leave just in time to help with the team with their last case, and in this Criminal Minds season 11 episode, Dr. Tara Lewis is back to help out after making a deal that allows her to both work with the Bau and supervise and coordinate a comprehensive review of serial criminals.
In "Awake," the Bau heads to Phoenix to find an UnSub kidnapping victims and depriving them of sleep. Plus, Hotch and Garcia deal with the threat from the underground hitman group now that they know she's the Dirty Dozen.
ABC’s “Quantico” remained a powerhouse in delayed viewing, more than doubling its same-night rating while a couple of other shows — NBC’s “Blacklist” and FX’s “American Horror Story” — grew by more than 90%, according to Nielsen’s “live plus-3” estimates, which include viewing via DVR playback or VOD within a three-day window following its linear telecast. Several shows across broadcast and cable, meanwhile, including ABC’s “Shark Tank,” Showtime’s “The Affair,” CBS’ “NCIS: Los Angeles” and CW’s “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend,” hit season highs.
At Showtime, “The Affair” (pictured) is picking up steam midway through its second season, drawing a season-high 1.44 million viewers in L+3 even while the net’s “Homeland” was on the low side with 2.18 million. This was the third straight week that “The Affair” has hit a season high, and last week marked the first time that it drew more adults 18-34 than “Homeland” (219,000 vs. 215,000).

75 years ago today, Disney took a risk with the opening of its experimental animated film, “Fantasia.” The third feature film made by the House of Mouse, “Fantasia” was released as a limited-run roadshow attraction, starting on November 13, 1940. The New York Times review published the following day declared it to be a film that “really dumps conventional formulas overboard and boldly reveals the scope of films for imaginative excursion.” Images of Mickey Mouse set to music by Paul Dukas, hippos dancing to the tune of Ponchielli, and centaurs and cupids backed by Beethoven have all become iconic in the decades since its release. The film has further secured its pop culture status with “Fantasia” video games, a follow-up feature called “Fantasia 2000,” and with a spot on AFI’s list of the greatest 100 American films. One “Fantasia” segment will soon get the live action treatment: the nightmarish “Night on Bald Mountain »

Rossi's daughter, Joy, a journalist, came to her dad for help on Criminal Minds season 11's ?Target Rich.? She was writing a piece on campus violence against women, and her research revealed a pattern; four missing women, all freshman and sophomores, over the course of nine years. The recent disappearance of a local student named Bahni Desai caught Joy's eye. Rossi agreed to investigate and soon learned Joy's concern was justified. Soon, the Cm profilers found themselves dealing with two completely unrelated UnSubs operating in the same target-rich environment. For more on what happened in episode 7, read the recap. »
