    Teeeechnically a superhero show like Smallville could be considered science fiction, given that the central character is an alien. Fantasy would probably be the best overriding genre for all superhero fare, given that a single comic book universe can cover characters as diverse as the Silver Surfer (Sci-Fi), Doctor Strange (Fantasy) and The Punisher (Action), but a single concept based around Superman alone? An argument for the science fiction tag could be made. And I’d say that The X-Files would be considered Sci-Fi first and foremost, despite its horror based episodes.

    Your comment about methix0r though? Spot on! ;)

    ” also think that Scandal will go back up. It still is a 10pm show that built on the 9:00 hour. Not very common these days.”

    I agree with you Jenna, Scandal is defying gravity at 10pm. – The next day is work day so viewers tend to wind down their viewing and head to bed or clean the dishes and put out the garbage, but to settle in and watch a 10 pm show is most unusual. If the were to move Scandal to 9pm it would score 3.6 consistently and Grey’s at 8pm would gain renewed traction.

    Are you me lol. Because thats exactly how i also feel about Supernatural. Its so clear the show went on way to long when 2 huge fans like us have this feeling about it now.

  • Truth


    Yes, because 2 “huge fans” on this site defines an entire fanbase. ;)

  • Bored Now

    Might have to agree with Truth here because I’m pretty certain that despite our differences we’re also two huge Supernatural fans and we both think that the show is just as good as it ever was.

    Does that mean the four of us cancel each other out? ;)

  • anti-bondoel

    Hey Jon aka Bondoel haha some huge fan you are. Why don’t you just admit you’re jealous because your precious Nikita is ending

  • Dream on


    LOL they beat Lucifer and the Arcangels, and Armaggedons Klaus will more dificult to kill I’ll give you that but the Salvatore will be gone in a second why ’cause they are amazing hunters and they have something called “brotherhood” and loyalty and both survive Hell and Purgatory facing worst thing than vampires, and to get rid of Klaus they just need to call one of their angels pals and that’s it

  • methix0r

    @ dream on incorrect

    nothing can kill klaus accept white oak stake m8 nothing doesn’t matter what they do it wont work , and klaus has the white oak stake so again your wrong.

  • methix0r

    also at you people , smallville is known as the longest running sci fi show in history as it beat and surpassed SG-1? you dot believe me google it look it up on wiki , you people saying it isn’t a sci fi show doesn’t make that true. the fact is atm it is the longest running sci – fi show in history in front of supernatural and sg-1. until supernatural finishes its 10th season and surpasses it in total amount of episodes this will remain unchanged no matter what you say.

  • methix0r

    this is why i really hate all supernatural fans they bring the worst out in everyone all the time and its the reason i stay away from this place and is also the reason i am now ashamed to call my self a supernatural fan in the past.

  • Joseph A

    not really concerned about the ratings,, that said

    as a rule I watch most of my shows next day, and will look forward to new episodes of TBBT and MEN , next week.

    of the shows I did watch ,
    The Crazy Ones , I love this show just hope that CBS gives it at least 2 seasons so it can develop some depth

    The Michael J FOX , I like aspects of the show but find it a challenge due to the casting of Betsy Brandt (15 years the junior of Michael) , and Katie Finneran as the aunt with addict behavior.

    The show that has become my surprise must watch of the night though is SCANDAL. I found myself streaming the show via the ABC website and got hooked. Needing to watch most of the prior seasons but its been added to my must watch list.

    @ methix0r

    You think an angel couldn’t kill Klaus? Even a little low ranking angel could toss him into the pit. lol

    I love both shows by the way.

  • Truth


    Klaus is not immortal. He can have his heart ripped out or be decapitated. If anything, he’s physically on par with the Alpha vampire from Supernatural. (Who was easily subdued by a group of hunters.)

    If the Winchesters become aware of vervain and wolfsbane, it’s all over for the supernatural beings of the TVD universe.

  • Dream on


    Plz is like you were saying that Klaus is some celestial being who is untouchable and above all, of course an Angel could kill him they are celestial beings with powers beyond the creatures in this world, but of course for you ’cause you said it that you like TVD best for you always their are gonna win over the Winchester, at least those guys aren’t killers and they act like true brothers I really never understand how people can be so on the side of vampires creatures who drain blood and kill innocent people for no reason but feed at least the Winchester save people and save the world once in a while.

  • Jon

    Why would any Nikita fan be jealous when it ends like shows like Fringe,Prison Break, Breaking Bad, LOST, Alias ect.. A complete show going out on top in storyline without getting stale. Which Supernatural has been since season 5 season finale :-)

  • T

    They gave TVD at 10 here in New York so I’m guessing that might have hurt it.

  • Dream on


    Supernatural fans bring the worst of you??? nobody told you to respond Truth’s comment in the first place you could just let pass and nothing would’ve happen, and for what I understood nobody was nasty to you it was actually a fun thing that you said why the Winchesters will be killed by the Salvatore and viceversa but seems to me that you take it for the wrong side!

  • Truth


    Why are you acting like Supernatural is collapsing or something? Clearly the ratings say different.

    You must be a TVD fan in disguise. /sarcasm

  • anti-bondoel

    Jon aka Bondoel HA! Don’t insult those shows by comparing them to Nikita :D
