The new show premiered on CBS with 12.9 million viewers in a special 8:30 ET/PT according to preliminary Nielsen figures, making it this fall's biggest new-series opener.
And it brought in 3.2% of adults ages 18 to 49, winning its first half-hour and narrowly behind NBC's The Voice in the second.
Supergirl held onto 81% of Big Bang's 15.9 million viewers, and 76% of its young-adult lead-in.

Pretty impressive since the pilot leaked months ago.
