    yay for X Factor!

  • Moe

    Wow, what happened to Supernatural last night? Guess people weren’t into cartoons and Sam flashbacks. Bummer for the show though.

  • Mickey

    I thought the 0.9 for Supernatural might just be a blip, but now that it adjusted down and Arrow adjusted up, I think it might be other people like me just got to the point where they had to stop watching.

    I’ve seen a lot of people say they’re giving it to the end of the season, so we’ll see. Carver is lucky he inherited the most loyal audience in the world, but loyalty will only last so long.

  • Bee

    great for arrow.

    suburgatory is not taking to MF any better than CT or HE did. bummer.

  • Shaula

    Ouch, Supernatural…

  • Wright

    Glad to see Arrow go up. SPN still doing good even though it went down.

  • Joseph

    Yay for x Factor!

  • Dennis

    Supernatural is horrible this season…..

    …..it was horrible last season, and the season before that.

  • anonymous

    YEAHH! For Arrow!! God Im soooo happy that the show keep that kind of rating :D

  • Elle

    Maybe it had to do with Castiel being on the episode so much? I don’t like him but I didn’t mind him on last night’s episode. I also can’t stand Sam’s flashback’s.

  • lll

    Agreed. SPN is far from being cancelled.

  • eridapo

    Charlie Brown beats Simon Cowell (demo tied, viewers tiebreaker)

  • Samuel

    Happy for X Factor!

  • were123

    WOW Arrow keeps doing amazingly!!! I hope it hits 1.4 or 1.5 eventually :D

  • Lisa

    I did hear SPN was not shown somewhere I forgot. But I wish they would get on with the plot in stop experimenting so early in the season.

    Supernatural is a certain renewal over at the cw, despite the drop. I think it will bounce back for the fall finale anyway. Arrow is doing incredibly. Suburgatory is likely better used at 8h30 than 9h30, as I truly think having a weak show at 8h30 hurts the 9pm show a bit, as big as it is by itself (see Partners and 2 Broke Girls). I think the true reason for the move of suburgatory to 9h30 was to try to protect nashville in case neighbours flopped

  • Jarrod

    I’m not worried for Supernatural. As a veteran show that would never be canceled by The CW, it’s doing pretty well. Chances are that viewership will continue to stabilize around 2 million this season thanks to Arrow. Though what happens in the spring is questionable, I doubt that Arrow and Supernatural will suffer too much. I have a feeling that the same will happen to 90210 when The Carrie Diaries comes to The CW – its ratings will go up and possibly stabilize high enough for a renewal. If Supernatural can get the fans from Arrow, chances are 90210 will get it from The Carrie Diaries due to the same target audience.

  • Carl

    I don’t think the ratings drop was down to Cas. The last episode had “WELCOME BACK CASS” promos and they were 1.0. I think the promos marketed a funny episode, then the episode itself was more serious. Sam’s flashbacks are also poorly done.

  • robin

    SPN filler episodes are soo boring. but I just love episodes that deals with the main story

  • DougF

    Supernatural will still be the third highest rated show on the CW this week.


    Maybe you should stop watching.
