    the ratings were down because this was pegged as a a heavy cas story…he is not the money guy-i wish the producers would understand that.

    And Bingo! Like a trained monkey.

    8×07 was also pegged as a Cas episode, a heavier one even. How come that one scored a 1.0? Is he sometimes the money guy and sometimes not? Or could it be you’re talking out of your behind?

    HE did better last year than Suburgatory is this year, but not on an adjusted basis. MF was pulling 5s last year when HE was pulling 3s.

    @Jon 8888

    You’d be surprised how many are waiting in the wings, biding their time for the show to fall in ratings so they could come out and declare their hate. Every episode the show dips these critters show up and start singing the death of SPN, and yet it’s still the third strongest show on the network and has been there for 8 years. You’d wonder that’d give them a clue. But I guess most of them are bitter fans of other shows that are doing badly or that got cancelled.

    I know that dying on Supernatural is not permanent, but they shouldn’t have killed off Bobby.

  • forg

    This is actually the first time Suburgatory was adjusted down this season. Still pretty disappointed that its performing average despite strong lead in.

    “HE did better last year than Suburgatory is this year, but not on an adjusted basis. MF was pulling 5s last year when HE was pulling 3s.”

    Their fans still don’t realize this. ;)

  • Dave Franco

    So why not put Nikita on Wednesday then? It’s a much better show and being rot away on Fridays. CW wants to kill it.

    @Blackwell69: Arrow is so cheesy it hurts. Plus the horrible dialogue.

    I agree. It’s putting up strong numbers but it’s mediocre show. Terrible lead, to much focus on the romance side. Nothing really happens story wise.

  • T-Dog

    Arrow is great for CW. If this builds up to 1.4-1.5 it will be the franchise show for the next decade(literally lol)

  • Jon 8888

    @Tessa OMG I don’t know what they want to? SPN is bothering them or something. hope spn survives all those haters :( Looks the others shows don’t have haters like spn

  • Guest

    @Charlotte Always
    Quit hating on XF! If some people like XF, let it be! Everyone is entitle to their own opinion.. Some of us find XF more entertaining and find the voice boring..So? You can’t change what we like or say that we’re wrong for thinking XF is better, it’s what we prefer.

  • CBSviewer

    @ Jon 8888
    Supernatural haters are certainly Nikita’s fan who are jealous because their show will die on Friday and Supernatural will have a long and successful Life on WEDNESDAY after Arrow !


    Im soooo happy Supernatural dropped. Worst show I’ve ever seen in my life.

    Modern Family is really sucking this season. Next season will be in the 3’s if they dont shape up!

  • robin


    with 1.2-1.3 ratings I don’t think arrow will have that kind of longevity even TVD won’t last that long. arrow is getting numbers smallville had in its last couple of seasons.

  • Jon 8888

    @CBSviewer I don’t know much about Nikita. but Cw screwed up everything when they moved on SPN on Friday. and they don’t promote small shows like should be. . Supernatural, Hart of Dixei and beaty & the beasty

    @Jon 8888

    Don’t worry about SPN, it’s still the 3rd highest show (in term of ratings) on the CW. SPN, Arrow and the vampires are the only 3 shows who hitted 0,8 (if you don’t count the premiere of B&B) and higher. And if you don’t count any premieres, only B&B was able to hit at least 0,7.

    So no worry there.

    Haters will hate. They just can’t stand to see SPN survives for so long while their shows get cancel or to see SPN beat some internet pool (….like it’s the end of the world or anything…..). And there’s always be SPN ‘fans’ always searching for a reason to hate. Sam doesn’t itneract with guest stars? Let’s hate the show. Sam finally has scenes with others people? let’s still hate the show.
