    I just can’t get into The Originals. Klaus is annoying.

  • Dochas

    This makes me happy as I love both shows. Kudos to all of the guys!

  • thesnowleopard

    Agreed. Kind of a shame, as the rest of the verse is interesting (okay, the bad witch totally overacts; there’s that), but his bad-boy petulance gets wearing.

  • Me

    The Originals is way better than TVD plot-wise. Nice!

  • AAA

    I like Originals, in love with SPN. But still: Originals is a “hit” on it’s 1st season, while SPN just …SPN, veteran. It’s so unfair. This show supposed to be praised and recognized more. Hope we’ll get PCA for them. Better than nothing.

    Congrats to the CW!!! I must admit that I had my doubts about this pairing (Arrow was perfect for me & I’m not watching TO), but it’s kicking ass & taking names!!!

  • chriscross

    Supernatural really was EPIC! last night. Jensen Ackles is brilliant! I spent all night lying awake worrying about Dean…

  • Tom

    What miracle happened on 11/04/08? LOL

  • Andrew21

    Congrats CW!I don’t know how the network rised so much this season, but they deserve it.
    And i think their ratings next season could rise even more if they pick up the arrow’s and spn’s spin-offs and really appealing new series, and work out monday nights

  • Rachel

    Go supernatural!

  • david

    Great for the CW for fixing Tuesday nights! I agree i think the next task for them to pick up the Flash and a couple more really good shows and fix Mondays to get up to a 1.0 or so as well.

  • Lena

    Love both shows! I’m glad they’re loved by mosy viewers!

  • Antuan

  • TAD

    supernatural was AWESOME. what a great episode. the acting of jensen and jared was superb. casnt wait to see the episode in january.

  • Collins addict

    I was crushed last night by the death. I think the ending was the hardest seeing poor Dean like that. Ive been trying to catch up in Vampire Diaries, and after that i will watch the Originals. Supernatural is by far my favorite TV series. Im glad that this channel had so many viewers. Its my favorite channel as well. ^.^

  • Elizabeth

    I love SUpernatural so much It is my favorite show ever. I think I have a young heart and am still young even tho my age is just slightly over the 49 mentioned but I do love the show and like I said I am young and love the guys

  • sinataslimy

  • Milo Winchester

    wow congrats to CW and thanks to SUPERNATURAL for having kept us to the edge of our seats and like Mikey M said KLAUS is annoying

  • Quin

    Yay awesome go Supernatural Holy Terror was a really good episode! I can’t wait for it to come back in January! I hope the 2nd half of season gets even more viewers! Love Supernatural!
