Supernatural (Tuesday nights, 9pm, CW)
By Paula R. Stiles

The season is over, so no new episodes until the Fall (Yes, the dreaded Hellatus is upon us). But we still have repeats. This week, the repeat is “Paper Moon.”

There’s a new interview out with Jared Padalecki, talking about what he’s been up to recently.

The guest stars for the Comic-Con panel (which will be on Sunday morning in Hall H, as usual) will be Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles, Misha Collins, Mark Sheppard, and Jeremy Carver.

SuperWiki did a picspam of Jerry Wanek’s behind-the-scenes photos and accompanying tweets for season ten.

The repeat of “Soul Survivor” maintained a 0.3/1 in demo and dropped slightly to 0.79 million in audience.

The Live+7 ratings are in for the season finale. It rose from a 0.7 to 1.3. In comparison, iZombie in its previous slot only rose from a 0.6 to 1.0.


We’ll be back next week with more news, spoilers and blatantly unabashed self-promotion. Stay tuned and check out our reviews of Game of Thrones, Doctor Who, Torchwood, The Event, Once Upon a Time, Grimm and Supernatural.
