…it’s worth watching all of, IMHO.
Note, like last season’s the “4-part crossover” of Supergirl, Flash, Green Arrow and Legends, there was only about 1 minute of relevant x-over in the Supergirl episode from the day before, and I believe that the Flash episode started with a recap of that anyway.
Here’s the relevant Supergirl snippet:
If you don’t want to watch the whole episode, you should at least watch Barry & Kara’s duet, “(I’m Your) Superfriend” written by Crazy Ex-Girlfriend’s Rachel Bloom:
Although it’s not hard to find all the songs via YouTube, of course,
Supergirl, “Moon River”
“Put a Little Love in Your Heart”
“More I Cannot Wish You” (from Guys and Dolls, of course) — Joe West (Jesse L. Martin), Martin Stein (Victor Garber) & Malcolm Merlyn (John Barrowman)
“Runnin’ Home To You” — Grant Gustin (Flash)
(I think that’s all of them.)
And, unsurprisingly, there’s lots of related news clip interviews, including some “make of the episode” views
Carol Pinchefsky alerted me to an article that she wrote “9 Sci-Fi TV Musicals That Rocked Television Before Supergirl and The Flash”. Let me add more… there’s also a still-growing list of non-sf post-Buffy TV musical episodes, of course, e.g. (off the top of my head) including Scrubs, Castle, Gray’s Anatomy, Psych.
And here’s some lists via
Mr KnowItAll the Internet:

- TV Tropes: Musical Episode
- IFC: 10 Incredible Musical Episodes In TV History
Oddly, off-hand, I’m not seeing Cop Rock listed in any of these. Or else I didn’t read carefully enough… or that’s considered “a show which has songs in every episode.”
Lastly, this just in (seen): As I just learned from learned from io9.gizmodo.com, this week’s episode of The Magicians (which we haven’t seen yet) has characters doing a song from Les Miserables (I just watched about half of this).
