If Supernatural fans wanted to get their message out, they went to the right place. This morning a Twitter crusade rose on the popular social networking site as Supernatural fans tweeted the phrase "Lucifer is coming" in honor of tonight's season 5 premiere in which the prince of darkness rises to Earth. The fans successfully made it one of the popular trending topics on Twitter (at one point this morning, Supernatural held five of the top trending spots). But a bit of a controversy broke out which caused Twitter to remove "Lucifer is coming." It turns out some people, unaware that this was a Supernatural shout-out, feared Satanists were taking over Twitter and spouting their own rhetoric, leading rivals to tweet "God is here." And though it's not clear where this backlash started, many Supernatural tweeters are blaming none other than Diddy (aka Puff Daddy, P. Diddy, Sean Combs, etc) who tweeted about using God's army to defeat the devil. This epic tweet war between good and evil lasted a short time before Twitter took down the messages after receiving several complaints. While it's sad that a simple Supernatural slogan caused such an uproar, it could be good news, as the controversy does even more for the show, airing tonight at 9pm on The CW , than the initial campaign did. A little religious controversy can go along way. We all remember that painting of the Virgin Mary with elephant dung, but no one would've cared if there wasn't a controversy. Obviously Supernatural isn't elephant dung, but the same rules still apply. People talking about Supernatural is good. Whether it's in the form of like-minded fans gathering to warn that Lucifer is coming, or frightened pious tweeters who think it's the end of days, Supernatural made a little news today, and tonight, it will undoubtedly make fans go even crazier.

I'm in a pretty good mood today and I'd like to think it has something to do with what's on TV tonight. Sure, it's a little bit shallow but not if you're a Supernatural fan. Because tonight is the night Lucifer rises. It's also the night I finally lay my eyes on those hot Winchester boys. I've been rewinding the fourth season of Supernatural the past few days so last season's climatic ending is still fresh in my mind. With Sam having killed Lilith, and ultimately breaking the final seal, Lucifer is now free. And with Lucifer comes the Apocalypse. But I'd like to think that Supernatural has its own version of the end of the world apart from a giant hurricane, the collision of a large meteoroid, or perhaps seeing a bunch of possessed naked people running around the street and having orgies. I expect it to be something grave yet subtle. Maybe even something that's happening right in front of you and you don't even know it. But the Apocalypse is the least of my worries right now since I know that there's an entire season of Supernatural devoted to it. What I'm really looking forward to tonight are the following: Meeting the Devil I can't imagine being in Sam and Dean's shoes, watching Lucifer (Mark Pellegrino) as he emerges from hell as Supernatural kicks off its fourth season opener. It must be the most frightening experience ever out of all their horrifying adventures since the show has build up Lucifer as powerful and just pure evil. But what happens when he turns out to be the most compassionate character this season? After all, "Sympathy for the Devil," the title of the season 5 premiere, is a clever play on words that puts across just how much different Lucifer is from what we all imagined. Sam and Dean's Relationship Having gone through the events at the end of season 4, Sam, who carries a huge weight on his shoulder for being responsible for freeing Lucifer from his hellish imprisonment and who must feel such horrifying regret, gets emotional and tries to settle his fallout with Dean. I'd love to see Sam and Dean make amends but I'm not expecting an immediate resolution. They said some pretty heavy stuff to each other and it even came to a point where they vowed never to see each other again so it's going to be hard to patch up all those unresolved issues in the first episode alone. But knowing Dean, he'll probably want to bottle up all his feelings and just pretend to move on in order to focus on Lucifer, at least for now. Castiel Poor Cas. He's now blown to bits by the archangels after trying to help Dean stop the final seal from being broken. Sam and Dean, along with Bobby (Jim Beaver) learns this stunning news from Chuck the Prophet (Rob Benedict), who says he's having a very stressful day since he found one of Cas' molars in his hair. It's a pretty hilarious scene but this leaves me with the question: How can Cas return after being squashed like a water balloon of chunky soup? Source Here
* Vampire Diaries (8/7c The CW ) Kevin Williamson, the creator of Dawson's Creek and the Scream fright flicks, combines two of his favorite things - teens and horror - in his promising adaptation of the pre-Twilight young-adult book series that nevertheless owes its TV existence to Twilight's mega-success. In tonight's predictable but polished opener, Stefan (Paul Wesley), a centuries-old vampire who doesn't look a day over 19 and refuses to drink human blood, returns to his Virginia hometown to pursue a high-school student (Nina Dobrev) who reminds him of a long-lost love. Of course, Stefan's evil brother (Ian Somerhalder) shows up to complicate things. * NFL Opening Kickoff 2009 (8/7c NBC) This year's sixth annual salute to the Super Bowl-winning team features three-time Grammy winners Tim McGraw and the Black Eyed Peas performing in a free concert in Pittsburgh, hosted by Saturday Night Live's Seth Meyers. Don't expect to see much of any of them the show's only a half hour. Pro-football fans will want to stay tuned for the main event at 8:30 pm/ET as real honest-to-goodness NFL games get underway, with the Pittsburgh Steelers hosting the Tennessee Titans. * Big Brother 11 (8/7c CBS) Who will be the two finalists who will compete for jury votes on Tuesday and the $500,000 grand prize? The last Head of Household competition will go a long way in determining which of the three remaining houseguests will be evicted later tonight. It's certainly the most important showdown of the season. * Supernatural (9/8c The CW ) All hell breaks loose - literally - as the fifth season of the supernatural thriller begins. Fans will recall from last season's finale that Lilith's death broke the 66th and last remaining seal that kept Lucifer (Mark Pellegrino) confined to hell. Now he is free to roam the Earth and cause destruction at will. Looks like Sam and Dean have their work cut out for them this year. * Project Runway (10/9c Lifetime Television ) Our threaders made waves in the previous episode when they took a fashion field trip to the shores of California and designed fun surf wear, complete with an avant-garde companion piece. Cool Ra'Mon rode the wave to a win, but life was a beach for wipeout victim Mitchell. With the Season 6 needling already spiking (Epperson vs. Qristyl), we move onward. Thirteen is the lucky number when the group is slated to create clothes for 13 folks of the fairer sex tonight. * Ace of Cakes (10/9c Food Network ) When NFL superstar Tom Brady needs a cake, Duff and Co. get busy. They create a confection for the Best Buddies International gala, which will be hosted by the Patriots quarterback. Meanwhile, Ben works on an elaborate robot cake inspired by Doctor Who. Later, the Charm City Cakes crew takes to the paintball field to settle some bakery grievances, and Duff and Mary Alice make their long-awaited stage debut. Source Here
