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

The Season 12 line-up (23 episodes) so far: “Keep Calm and Carry On” (12.01) official photos and press release; “Mamma Mia” (12.02) synopsis and photos; “The Foundry” (12.03) synopsis, official photos, sneak peek, and promo; “American Nightmare” (12.04) synopsis, official photos and promo; “The One You’ve Been Waiting For” (12.05) synopsis, promo and set photos; “Celebrating the Life of Asa Fox” (12.06) synopsis, photos and promo, and “Rock Never Dies” (12.07) synopsis.

The show was filming episode 252 as of last week.

There was a new con in Burbank this past weekend. Jensen Ackles talked about really enjoying an upcoming script (probably 12.11) in which Dean experiences a significant change.

At last week’s con, Bob Singer talked about how the show always likes to leave off on a cliffhanger.

Ratings for “The One You’ve Been Waiting For” (12.05) dropped a bit in demo to 0.7/2 and 1.70 million. This tied it for third place in demo and fourth in audience for the week on the network.

In the Live+7 ratings, the third episode of the season, “The Foundry,” rose from 0.6 to 1.0 in demo and from 1.683 million to 2.640 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.
