    i’m glad the originals has been able to hold its own against pll.

    I definitely disagree with you about Arrow. It was great last year and it has been even better this year. The action scenes are some of the best on television. I enjoy everything about it.

  • CBSviewer

    Supernatural spin-off will be called Supernatural: Tribes. Seriously ?

  • Josh


    Where on earth do u get ur assumption’s from!? Supernatural has better ratings due to smart scheduling by its network and a loyal group of fans not luck!? It proved it never should’ve been exiled to Fridays! It’s genre like grim allows for completely free writing which gives it an edge bc it’s not tied down by a linear plot! Jensen and Jared are NOT UNDER RATED quite the opposite actually, please do proper research! they’re both fantastic actors! Season 9 has been way better than 8 and it’s ratings reflect that! 4 years ago smallvile was relocated to Friday and survived with similar ratings until it’s mutual ending by cast and crewand for the same reasons! They are better shows than the 3 u mentioned and thus had/have better ratings

    I know this is fan excuse bingo territory, but no one in ATL was watching The Originals or Supernatural (or anything other than news coverage) last night. I’m not sure if it was even on or if it was PE’d by news coverage of the storm. Had I not still been stranded in my car, I’d have watched it.

    Or maybe Reign and TTP just aren’t very good. Whether or not Supernatural’s episode was good this week or not is unrelated to how well Reign and TTP are doing, since SPN has already had eight-plus seasons to show its ratings are not a fluke. After all, this week is only up 0.1 from last week.

    I hope they change the title. That’s awful. At least they should drop the “supernatural” part and just call it “tribes”. I guess we should be thankful that they didn’t name it as “Supernatural: Chicago”

  • Bluebells

    Reign is a good show, then again its all subjective.

  • thesnowleopard


    Reign has been slammed for its complete lack of historical accuracy and dippy characters, and its ratings are indifferent, at best, with less than two million Americans in far less than a 1.0 on A18-49 watching it each week. And it’s not even halfway through its first season, yet.

    So, yeah, sure, it’s subjective, but by objective criteria, it seems very silly to claim the reason why Reign is doing worse than Supernatural is because CW watchers don’t appreciate quality shows. There’s plenty of evidence to indicate many just don’t think that Reign, as an historical drama, is very good.

  • Bluebells

    Gossip girls had great ratings in its first season, would you call that a good show?

  • sinataslimy

    go spn wow
    last night episode was not so awesome
    but still doing great

  • Bluebells

    I know this is irrelevant on a ratings site but in the next episode, Dean wears a freaking hairnet, a hairnet? Lol.

  • Tony JJ

    Supernatural: Tribes ???

    really? bad name, hopefully they change it.

  • Bluebells

    @Tony JJ
    Agree. But i’m more worried about the fact that they picked Jane the virgin to pilot. Jane the virgin? really? why couldn’t they pick Painted girls or the Revengers? And the synopsis is god awful.

  • Crystal

    Supernatural: Tribes? really? That is the worst title ever.

  • Val


    Umm…saying Jared and Jensen are underrated is a GOOD THING. It means they are better than what some people/the media think. If they were OVERRATED like you are claiming they are, that’s bad. It means they are not as good as people claim they are. Overrated would mean that people have a higher opinion of them than they actually deserve.

    And yeah, the show has better ratings than those mentioned, but what is good/is not good is just a matter of personal opinion. I’m saying this as a huge fan of Supernatural.

  • Val

    It does say that the spinoff is “tentatively” titled, so hopefully that name changes! Ugh, I can’t see them keeping that.

  • Maya

    I’m very happy that SPN didn’t adjusted down! last night was a good episode, I loved having Garth back and also it reminded me the old episodes with the Monster of the Week, this show has a very strong fan base, which has been there since day one and we are not gonna go anywhere, and for a 9th year old show it stills draw new audience is awesome!!!

    @sinataslimy. Precise! :D.

    Go!Go! Supernatural Good episode!
