    I am just getting into Supernatural right now and am watching it from the beginning on Netflix streaming.

    I keep seeing so many comments from people catching up with Supernatural on Netflix or TNT, it’s giving me hope it will give us a little boost in the ratings next year.

    If you want to catch up in time to join the live party for season 8, Season 7 repeats start airing on the CW on Friday May 25. You could record them for when you get through seasons 1-6 on Netflix. (I assume they wouldn’t have season 7 on Netflix for a bit?)

    Also, welcome to the Most Loyal Fanbase on TV. ;) I envy you that you have the whole series ahead of you. (Trust me, it’s addictive: I’ve seen lots of comments of people who got through the whole series in less than three months.)

  • Psycho Bob

    They won’t have Season 7 on Netflix streaming until it hits DVD/Blu-Ray, everything on Netflix is based on what is released on DVD. The newer episodes go to Hulu Plus which I also have.

    Supernatural is very good so far, I’ve just finished watching the 10th episode.

    CBS comedy block is still strong considering 8-10 pm is the toughest competition with The Voice and DWTS. Hawaii drops a lot after it. This tells me CBS will try another comedy block on Thursdays. Why bother with dramas when a M&M that looks pretty cheap to me can get almost 1 point higher demo than a very expensive show as Hawaii.
    This proves too a show is about the characters/actors connecting with the audience , as Mike&Molly are doing, and not about putting ridiculous large amounts of money for car races, stunts and shirtless people.

    Ah, so that’s the point of Hulu.

    Good for Castle. 2.4 and 12m viewers is awesome. I feel this show is about to take it to another level.

  • davie

    Bones pulling a 1.9 on Monday. Time to ship it to Fridays! =p

  • Saleesa

    End Gossip Girl already, CW!

  • Bob

    Sorry Ringer fans but even if possible pick up, with Sarah Michelle Gellar pregnant, she may not want to come back for Season 2 anyway. She is very young and has a bright future in TV and movies but just not on Ringer. Plus she is married to a hot guy…lol.

    Rachel Bilson is fine on DIXIE”

    Yup, i agree.
    She will not won Emmy or something, but she doing really well job on HoD, and she is charming and cute. And now i can’t imagine someone else to be Zoe Hart.

    About season 2, i’m pretty confident, besides TVD and SPN, it has best ratings.

  • Storm

    CW should cancel Nikita, HOD, TSC, and Gossip Girl. Keeping GG around with these ratings just makes them look (even more) like the loser-network.

  • Chris

    @Guy–Dude. Look at the ratings Castle got last season. The only level it’s heading for is the basement. :D

  • john

    @Lola That stupid B*tch Christina should not have gotten rid of jesse. Biggest TV reality show Shocker in a LONG time. And many people stopped watching, because of it. I think it was because people were paying more attention to him than her.
    No wonder she is the lowest paid reality female judge and Britany Spears is about to be paid more than her.
    She is a jerk. Jesse was the reason to watch this season I haven’t watched since.

    Lmao, The Voices ratings started dropping after the first Battle rounds, the week Dancing with The Stars started to air, as for Christina, i suggest you get your facts straight, she might be a bitch, but she gets $10 million for 17 episodes of the Vooice= nearly 600k per episode,*Britney(and not Britany) will get $15 million for 27 episodes of the X factor = just over 400k per epi. This in actual fact means That Christina Aguilera is The highest paid woman on Reality Tv (singing shows) per episode, so i suggest you stay seated!

    I think the funniest comments on this site are the ones where obsessed people with no sense of literary subtly whatsoever swing by in some ridiculous display of network loyalty (or over-the-top show addiction) and end up stringing together relatively meaningless words to no real effect.

    It frightens me a tad that such comma-laden posts are written by people who actually think they’re convincing anyone of anything.

    For the frak of it, however, I’ll go ahead and do it for a show of my choosing. It’s just too funny to pass up. Ahem.

    “Game of Thrones this past Sunday was great! Awesome, spectacular. If you didn’t watch it, then that’s your loss! It was stellar, rad, strong, very above-average. I feel bad for the haters because of how jealous they are as the hit series is terrific, good and really powerful and amazing. It’s just plain revolutionary and enormously spectacular.”

    @Pam. I agree that CBS will put another comedy block on Thursdays but they can’t get rid of ALL their dramas. And all the ten pm shows are suffering the same fate this spring with low ratings (and even some nine pm shows like NCIS LA have hit series, not just season lows). So yes they will def do more comedy in the coming years but I doubt they’ll get rid of dramas alltogether and all the ten pm shows drop down from the shows preceeding them. Even if they put comedy in the ten pm slots I think it would still drop significantly. People are catching up on stuff they’ve DVR’d earlier in the evening plus some nights (like Tuesdays) the ten pm slot has really stiff cable competition too.

    There are no shows that have a regular schedule on Saturday nights. Only the repeat hit dramas get aired on Saturday nights on CBS.

  • bleau

    LOL Rachel BIlson dont know how to act and doesnt even look an inch like a doctor. But w/ some 12 yr. old mindsets, every illussions could awfully turn into reality.

  • Perrin B

    SMASH is great. If anything they do not advertise previews enough featuring the beauty, sex appeal and fantastic music. I hope Mr. Spielberg will correct some things and bring it back for another season and another GREAT show. Plus the cast is superb far beyond many shows with higher ratings

  • susie g

    Everyone in our family LOVES “SMASH.” Now this is a show with the best of Broadway right on TV! Phenomenal acting, phenomenal music written for each episode, phenomenal singing. It doesn’t get any better than this. This is the best quality show there has ever been on TV!!!!!!

  • JJ

    I think the writers don’t get enough KUDOS in shows like:
    NCIS, Big Bang, Mike and Molly

    Now it is beyond me that they keep playing 2.5 Man……STUPID show.
    They need to create a story that Rose had kidnapped Charlie and bring him back….or just cancel the show.

  • stella

    Actually, it is not bad for Castle. Even though it is a season finale, in his time slot, the rating is good and the total number of viewers is great. It is, after all, the #1 ABC scripted show in this category (viewers). I know that rating is important and all, but Castle increased its numbers, ratings and viewers. And I do believe that the writers made the right decision on put them in a relationship, waiting any longer would be unfair to the audience, because Castle and Beckett are a different kind of tv couple, their relationship developed step by step. I love Hawaii 5-0 as well.

    Sorry for my lame english. Portuguese is my native language.
