  • This is the first season that Lois' screen time has been greater than Chloe's.
  • This season everyone has at least one episode with the highest screen time (Oliver, Tess and Zod). Lois has 5, which is her most ever. Clark only has 12, which is his least ever.
  • Lois and Oliver's screen time are the only ones to increase this season.
  • Lois and Clark are the only characters not to have an occasion where they have the least screen time in a single episode. This is the first time that this has happened for Lois since Season 6.
  • Oliver's screen time in Roulette is the highest screen time for any main character in a single hour episode thorughout the whole season. The only time Clark exceeds that in a single episode is his 35 minutes in Absolute Justice; however, this was a 2 hour episode.
  • This season contains both Oliver's highest screen time ever, in Roulette, as well as his lowest screen time ever, in Hostage.
  • Tess' screen time decreases by two minutes this season.
  • Checkmate is the first episode that Tess has the most amount of screen time.
  • This year the trend of axing the character with the least screen time is not continued, as Tess had the least screen time but remained a cast member and instead Zod left.
  • Zod has only one episode with the least screen time: Crossfire.
  • Conspiracy is Tess' least screen time in a single episode ever.
