Episode 07-01: Friday, 9/23/11
Year-to-year, Supernatural was down by a whopping 39% in the 18-49 demographic with a 0.8 rating and 2.01 million viewers. On the the positive side, the rest of The CW’s shows are down in the ratings so this one’s on par with Hart of Dixie, 90210, and America’s Next Top Model which air on better nights. On the downside, Supernatural’s been around for seven years and may be too expensive to continue with these numbers.


Reference point: The 2010-11 season averaged a 1.0 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 2.24 million viewers.

Note: These ratings are collected by the Nielsen company and are the final national numbers. These are different from the fast affiliate numbers which are just estimates of the actual ratings and are reported on by most other outlets. The final nationals are typically released within 24 hours of the programming or, in the case of weekends and holidays, a couple days later.

What do you think? Do you like the Supernatural TV series? Do you think it should be cancelled or be renewed for an eighth season?

Supernatual is the best show on TV today! What ever CW does do not loose this show or your station will not last. Sam is GREAT and Jared is a wonderful actor. Please don’t make him evil that would kill the show! Thank you for renewing this show and I know CW will be very pleased at it’s ratings. Also thanks to the writers for bringing Bobby and Castiel back. They both are very inportant to the show and the storylines. Again thank you for Supernatual I not only watch it evey Friday I also record to watch again! Almost forgot to thank TNT for showing Supernatual every weekday for 2 hours.

I’d like to see it renewed for Season 8, its a very popular show and id love to see it run long like Smallville did. Since Smallville signed off last spring 2011, they’ve started a Smallville Season 11 Comic Book following Season 10’s plotline, maybe they may do that if it doesn’t get renewed which i’m hoping so very much that they do.

I agree with JoJo.. I would very much rather watch Shows like Supernatural,Nikita,Ringer,Revenge,Secret Circle,Vampire Diaries,Grey’s Anatomy,Modern Family,Once Upon a Time,Desperate Housewives,Suburgatory,Last Man Standing..Ect,Ect… Shows with substance.. Not another show about a 6’ft-80lb Anorexic/Bulimic Teen who wants to run around half dressed all the time being treated like a lap dog with mange.. or a dozen ugly,Bitchy,horny people with no self-respect all stuffed under the same roof.. drinking and screwing all the time.. theres nother entertaining about stupid people.. what ever happened to creative writing and shows having a staying power like Perry Mason which lasted for nearly 10yrs or Law & Order which ran from 1990 to 2010 because they had a different story and plot every day.. shows now an days are lucky if the make it to a second season because they have bad writers,and cheap skate investors with no confidence in the show.. take NBC’s Heros for example it was a great show but do to bad writing,they could’nt take it any further even though it still to this day has a HUGE following because the lack of imagination and creativity… is it just Me or has anyone noticed the world getting dumber than a box of rock,or a bag of dirt, jay leno dose that street walking questionnaire where he asks people who their state representative is and they have no clue,but they damn sure know who kim K is… ={

Shows like Dancing with the Stars,The Bachelor,Celebrity Wife Swap,,American Idol,The X Factor,The X Factor,Mobbed,Cops,Q’Viva! The Chosen.. all kill Brain Cells and give teens unrealistic expectations of what life should be or could be.. look at the movie and music industry today.. kids are being told it’s ok to act like morons and worship this behavior because they see it being portrayed in shows like jersey shore,and the hills and wined up like heidi montag,or or worse yet lindsay lohan and paris hilton.. Just saying get it together people…

Please, please, please! Don’t let the seventh season be the end of Supernatural. It is an amazing show with an original story arc and a huge fanbase. Supernatural has conventions all over the world! The sad part is, since not all of us live in the US, when we watch the show – it does not show on the ratings. I hate it. I love this show, it would leave a hole to fill if it were to be canceled. And that hole could not be filled with mindless reality shows.

Supernatural is smart, scary, heartbreaking, funny, thrilling, and all over brilliant. We have excellent writers and directors, actors and stunning special effects for a weekly show.

Hear me CW, do not cancel Supernatural! It will pay off. Somehow, I know it will!

I would rather watch another season of the cast of Supernatural than to have another reality show shoved down my throat. How many “excellent, one of a kind, etc., etc.” can there be? Give me a show that someone has put a lot of thought into it. Whatever happened to a tv series with a good story line and imagination? Every station you turn to seems to be “reality”. Really? Supernatural, Revenge, Merlin, Drop Dead Diva, etc. are what I consider good tv. I don’t need to interact with the programs I watch. I may not speak for eveyone, but isn’t it nice to just sit back and watch a good show. If cancellation of non-reality shows continue at this rate, I may have to find something less painfull to watch, like watching paint dry!

Just getting into this tv show because I friend kept talking about it so decided to watch the last six series on Netflix. I plan on making this one of the four shows I would say that I regularly watch. I really would love to see Dean go and just be happy with what’s her name and Ben. If the show gets cancelled, don’t let it be cancelled on a cliffhanger, do the fans that much and let them end the show properly.

Please don’t cancel Supernatural, I love the show, in fact its the only TV show, I’ve ever gotten into. I love the characters, the two main actors Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki are very talented and handsome young men, they know how to act. The story arcs and plots are really good and it keeps me captivated from start to finish. I haven’t had chance to see season seven for myself yet, as it hasn’t aired over here in the UK, but from what I’ve read it sounds really good and I would hate to see the show end with a cliffhanger. So here’s hoping it gets renewed for a season eight.
