  • I knew the Originals would lose viewers. You don’t kill off one of the more popular characters midseason.

    • Was Davina a popular character? I mean enough to cause a drop in viewers?

      • Yeah I have to wonder the same thing, because personally I hated Davina, and was glad to see her gone.

  • I wonder why so many people turn to watch Obama lie. Im glad I didn’t watch. Maybe.next year Tvline can recap the state of the union.

      • Just because some of us don’t believe his lies doesn’t mean we are Tea partiers, you know theres more than Republicans and Demicrats, maybe you have heard about the Libertarian party?

        • All politicians lie. So sit. This is a conversation about television, not your irrelevant political beliefs. Thanks!

  • Haha good for Dads, so I got a buddy who likes Dads but also seems to like high brow comedies like Arrested Development and Parks and Rec. How weird is that?

  • Supernatural still has a loyal audience, I’m starting to think we might get season 11!

    • Starting to think? Please, it’s been one of the CW’s highest rated shows for years. It will keep getting renewed until the actors say they’re done or the showrunners decide it’s time to end. The network dreads that day given the dismal ratings most of its shows get.

  • Somewhere out there, a Belieber saw those Supernatural numbers and had a total breakdown. Two weeks of huge numbers after vowing to get us cancelled has to burn.

  • Last night’s Supernatural wasn’t my favorite ep but I’m glad it did so well.

    • People who actually live in the real world and have other things to think about than television…

      • You must care about tv if you are here.

  • Is it just me or is Tvline not putting up recaps lately like I watch the shows but I like to read them anyways and read the comments and also comment on them. But I checked there’s no supernatural recap or originals I mean I think they got lazy with not putting up the recaps becuz I really love the recaps to comment on and see what people thought of the episodes. I hope Tvline gets back on top of it. I love reading the spoilers and all but I also go to Tvline for the recaps of my shows

    • I agree Lilacs26. I feel like at some point this website did do Supernatural recaps? I could be wrong but I thought they did recaps on The Originals too. I wish they would start doing more stories on Supernatural though. Its a very good show and there are tons of fans.
