There is only one show that airs on Friday that matters: Medium, and it is getting cancelled. What is truly being witnessed on these lacking Friday night numbers are the fact that television series tend to go on far too long stretching weak plots, reusing old storylines, and creating themes that are fantastically beyond belief or don’t follow previous established plot lines. Supernatural jumping on the resurgent vampire trend (use to be far better than that), Smallville’s The Blur (Superman) still can’t fly after 10 seasons, and even Medium has erred with its plot lines (Allison’s gift is featured in a flashback highschool episode and in a later season appears to become aware of her gift for the first time upon the day of her marriage). I used to watch all three of these series religiously but now only watch Medium because it is still interesting and entertaining. For the most part Television Series on Primetime Networks need to learn most series have a shelf life of two to four seasons and only good ones can last six to eight seasons. Primetime networks need to have the gravitas to provide good series finales for its successful shows after five to eight seasons instead of attempting to squeeze every ounce of coin from a show that has had success in its early years. Follow HBO’s Example, ride high and end series after a natural run instead after its storyline has weakened past its viewership numbers and what is left is an immutable carcass noone could force themselves to watch!!

I am a female viewer who watches Supernatural, and my interest has dwindled to almost nothing with the Lisa and Ben storyline. I could not care less about Dean and his new family (and I don’t believe for a minute they’re out of the picture for good). It’s basically destroyed all investment I had in Sam and Dean’s relationship (maybe a little wacky relationship, but it’s THEM…it’s the foundation of what SPN IS). Now, I’ve sadly lost all trust in the showrunners to keep it about the brothers.
