    Arrow is a beast! :D

  • Mary Eliza

    Supernatural is close to the end. Finally.

    Try yet another show behind MF and keep the post-MF carousel rolling or actually stuck with something? It time they figure it out, it’s been 4 years already, get it together ABC cause you already wasted away 3 decent comedies in that time slot

    ABC is doing the right thing putting new shows in that timeslot because it’s their best platform for launching new comedies. Just because they have yet to launch a genuine hit in that timeslot doesn’t mean their strategy is wrong.

    @Mary Eliza It’s not that close to the end. It still is the third highest rated show on the CW and it hasn’t been dropping steadily, it just dropped this week and as others have discussed there were several reasons that could have contributed to the drop.

    Supernatural is a success and they have a fairly small budget and it makes boatloads of money for Warner Brothers, so it’s not going anywhere anytime soon. And why should it, lots of people still enjoy it.

    @Robin: So what? Comparing Arrow to Smallville is a direct violation of The Gunsmoke Rule. http://tvbythenumbers.zap2it.com/2011/06/03/we-of-the-gunsmoke-rule-mourn-the-passing-of-james-arness/94636/

    Get rid of the Whinechesters and maybe Supernatural will feel fresh again. Focus more on the horror instead of family drama BS.

  • Dan

    Great for CSI, Survivor, and Modern Faamily. And still disappointing for Xfactor.

    And cris no reason to say bye to Nashville it’s doing fine and will probably move to Sunday.

  • Chris

    Arrow was so awesome last night! Glad it’s going up! XD

  • DougF

    @Mary Eliza

    Nope. Getting better ratings than last year. Will probably get another 2 after this season.

  • Vanessa S.

    Whinechesters? Oh, how clever. Not! There’s nothing wrong with this show. Many of us still love it and I hope we get two more seasons.q

  • Marge

    And CSI wins the 10 o’clock again. YEA

    I like what Supernatural does with filler episodes. They do a pretty good job of executing on interesting ideas. I was laughing pretty hard at the cartoon theme, I think its one of the best episodes theyve done since the game show filler episode. A lot of the fans actually enjoy the campy filler episodes. The writers at least make them kinda fun.

    Arrow did good again and it was a really interesting episode wtih the girl and the motorcycle. Super Natural is still doing good too. I am hoping to see Arrow at a 1.4 or more sometime.

    the only thing i didn’t enjoy about supernatural last night was the stupid sam/amelia? flashbacks…what was the point of that? as for it being a stand alone episode, they do this every year…start a main story and throw in stand alone episodes thru out the season…why complain…any fan should know they are coming…btw i love castiel…he was hilarious last night…jmo

  • Freyja

    Gotta love the morons that wish for a show to die, just because they hate it. I mean how selfish is that.. If you don’t like it don’t watch it plain and simple!

    Never understood the whole I hate a show it needs to die mentality.

    SPN was alright last night wasn’t into the whole flashbacks with Sam and it pulled me out of the episode pretty quickly..

  • Phil

    I love X-Factor but sheesh it got beat by Charlie Brown again!

  • IwuvDean

    So it was adjusted down. So some people assume other people have stopped watching.
    So what?! IT IS STILL MY FAV SHOW. So it changed. But something never change. I know nothing lasts forever. IT WILL END ONE DAY. AND I WILL BE THERE when that day come.

  • socoolioni

    Those Sam flashbacks need to stop!!!!!!
    I hate them so much!
    Everytime I see him start to drift off thinking I’m thinking to myself…Oh no not another Dog and that dumb girl flashback!
    Who cares already ??????

    I just dont understand why they are taking so long to get this seasons arc going if there even is one ?

    This show used to be so damn good. Now I just watch it hoping it will get good again.

    After last season I thought this one would be better, but no I am starting to have my doubts.

    It seems that every show I really start to get into lately starts to go downhill.

    I just dont get it ?

  • Justin121

    A very good Wednesday when all Big 4 shows get +2.5.

    Except Nashville, that is.

    Modern Family is a beast. Suburgatory is doing good. CSI better than good. The X Factor also better than good.

    Supernatrual hitting season low. Uh, oh. Nashville steady as a rock.

  • herpderp

    People seem to forget that SPN got a 0.8 for it’s season premiere. Still an excellent rating compared to the rest of CW.

    As they say, haters be hatin. I suspect most of them are disgruntled Nikita fans. What an ungrateful fanbase. They get a third season when all by all means it shouldn’t have, and all they do is whine and moan.
