NBC’s The Cape fares OK on debut

Superhero drama starring David Lyons and Summer Glau performed decently on Sunday night.

Superhero drama The Cape launched on NBC last night and interested just over 8.4 million viewers, a solid debut. The show, starring David Lyons as a framed cop-turned-vigilante, launched as a two-hour premiere before it moves to a regular Monday slot tonight. While the debut isn’t massive, its encore showing tonight should do future episodes some favours – plus, it still ranks as one of the higher-rated series premieres of the season.

Coming episodes of The Cape will guest star Vinnie Jones and Mena Suvari. Currently, it has no UK broadcaster.
