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

The show is on Christmas hiatus until January 20. There’s a very strange promo for 11.10 (“The Devil in the Details”) and much fan spec about whether the Christmas aspect to it will be in the episode. No official synopsis or photos, yet.

No repeat this week.

Titles so far are “Out of the Darkness, Into the Fire” (11.01), “Form and Void” (11.02), “The Bad Seed” (11.03), “Baby” (11.04), “Thin Lizzie” (11.05), “Our Little World” (11.06), “Plush” (11.07), “Just My Imagination” (11.08), “O Brother Where Art Thou?” (11.09), “The Devil in the Details” (11.10), “The Sound of Silence” (11.11), and “Don’t You Forget About Me” (11.12).

The repeat for 11.02 equaled its lead-in from the Arrow repeat in the demo for a 0.3/1 and 0.86 million this week. Still third on the network for the week.

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.
