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 “Girls, Girls, Girls.”

San Diego Comic-Con is this week, promising an end to the arid part of Hellatus, spoiler-wise, and the beginning of the long march toward the show’s return on October 7. The show’s swag bag is out online, though TV Guide declined to give the show a special cover this year, which means I’ll probably decline to buy it unless it’s got some great articles in the issue.

Jensen Ackles tweeted briefly concerning the first produced (though not the first to be aired) episode of season 11, which starts shooting this week.

Extras are floating about for the upcoming season ten DVD. The gag reel was leaked and immediately yanked (then it came back), but there’s a documentary out on the Mark of Cain storyline.

The CW has been having a good tenth year. It was originally projected to go down with the affiliates ship when their contracts ran out, but it just secured some new funding and is doing better than ever.

The repeat of “Ask Jeeves” got a 0.2/1 in demo and 0.79 million in audience.

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.
