Supernatural News

Keith R. A. DeCandido is coming out with two Supernatural novels in 2010. The first, Heart of the Dragon, is out February 16. Love the cover.

Rolling Stone listed Supernatural as Reason #27 in its “50 Reasons to Watch TV” article in the Sept. 17 issue. It’s a teeny blurb that compares the Winchesters to the Duke boys, but it is #27.

Sadly, Supernatural came in last in its time slot both weeks. The first week, everything was reruns, but this week The Office and Fringe had season premieres. Supernatural fell 14% from the previous week. This week it goes up against Grey's Anatomy. GULP! So get the word out!

Jeffrey Dean Morgan is signed to be in the remake of Red Dawn. It will be out next September. Currently, he’s filming The Losers, another movie based on a graphic novel. He would like to return to Supernatural for an episode or two but hasn’t been formally approached.

Sales of the season 4 DVD doubled from the sales of Season 3 DVDS, the first week of release. This year, 238,081 copies sold the first week, earning $8.7 million. Last year, 104,979 copies sold, earning $4.1 million (I think I just got my word problem for the day for my class ;) )

Such a mix of positive and negative!

The drop in ratings is disappointing, but they have to be making lots of money off the other stuff (the DVD sales and the books) or they wouldn't keep doing things like the books.

I wonder if the early premiere was an issue? Casual fans might not realize it's started!

JDM and Red Dawn! OMG, you made me so happy. I loved that movie when I as a teen. Surely he'll be playing Andy, the role Powers Booth originally did. Can't wait!

Supernatural's Downfall

Bummer about the ratings. Maybe it'll pick up. I'm a little surprised, especially considering its lead-in, The Vampire Diaries, had the biggest debut on CW ever.

I do love that cover. Thursday aren't a good night since there are so many things on. That sucks about the ratings. I guess not everyone sticks around to watch Supernatural which I do. I watch shows on the other stations but I give Supernatural priority. I hate that they moved Fringe to Thursday. I think it might be a conspiracy to drive me insane.

Bard Girl, I agree. There are entire nights where there isn't anything I want to watch. And I kid you not, there are four things I'd watch in the 7 p.m. Central Thursday time slot alone! I'm okay with SPN because it's only up against Fringe and thankfully the ol' TiVo can handle two things at once.
