Good News, Bad News for TV Fans

GOOD NEWS: Thursday’s winter finale of SUPERNATURAL scored its best demos of the season and attracted a season high of 3.22 million viewers. BAD NEWS: How many of those 3.22 million viewers will remember to tune in when SUPERNATURAL finally returns on April 24? Momentum killer much?!

GOOD NEWS: Joshua Jackson is currently being stalked by the TV Addict shooting the top secret J.J. Abrams pilot FRINGE in the TV Addict’s hometown of Toronto, Canada. BAD NEWS: Which means, according to Michael Ausiello, that he had to bow out of his highly anticipated guest starring role on GREY’S ANATOMY. Quick, give me three CC’s of James Van Der Beek Stat!

GOOD NEWS: The writer’s strike is over! BAD NEWS: Due to what one can only assume is some highly confusing issue over digital rights, the podcast version of REAL TIME WITH BILL MAHER is no longer available for download (at least from Canada) on iTunes. What gives?!?!

    I’m so happy about Supernatural! But your right, maybe if they didn’t replace it with Reaper we still get the viewers, the upside note is I get 2 watch some Lost be4 it comes back. I’m pissed about Josh Jackson not being on Grey’s but couldn’t watch it untill the dvd was released anyway since I catch Supernatural on t.v. But can’t wait 4 his new series

    Joshua Jackson on a new JJ Abrams show > Joshua Jackson on Greys

    Wel, second best in ratings, after “Bedtime Stories.”

    When it returns will it likely go down in ratings? Totally. Other shows will be back and running again which will sap the numbers from SPN. But it averges like 3 million every week, breaks or no, so it’ll be fine.

    April 24th? Really? Good thing I read this blog, otherwise I would have never known. Guess I can watch Lost live for once, well, until Supernatural returns anyways.

    And I say that thank God for J.J. Abrams, saving Joshua Jackson from a guest stint on Greys.

    I’m glad people actually tuned into Supernatural. It was an amazing episode! I can’t wait unitl it comes back in April.

  • Mel

    Supernatural was excellent!!
    I’m kinda thinking that Reaper won’t do all that well in the timeslot and that Supernatural might be back sooner than Apr 24th — at least for some reruns.
    The encore presentation of season 2 episode, ‘Nightshifter’ at 8 did as well as a new episode of the Pussycat Dolls..
    So, maaaaybeeee . . . . . .
    Well, I can hope, can’t I? 😉
