Though The CW consistently comes in last place in the ratings, there's no denying that the viewers they do have are fiercely loyal and totally obsessed. But are they Emmy voters? Warner Bros. Entertainment seems to believe they are, because for the first time ever, The CW's shows are being marketed for Emmy consideration. In the most recent issue of Emmy Magazine, Warner Bros. launched the "OMFG FYC" campaign for its five CW-housed shows, officially submitting "Vampire Diaries," " Gossip Girl ," " One Tree Hill ," " Smallville " and " Supernatural " for consideration for Outstanding Drama Series.

Before Cory Monteith was singing in the showers on "Glee," he showed up on "Supernatural" in one of his first-ever roles. Monteith made a guest appearance on the episode "Wendigo" as Gary, and while he didn't last long, his high-pitched scream is certainly memorable. We love Cory's bandanna -- but we don't love how quickly he gets gobbled up by the monster of the week, an immortal, evil cannibal who lives in caves and can only be killed with fire. "Wendigo" was the first episode of "Supernatural" shot in Vancouver, B.C.. Monteith is a native of B.C., and his Canadian accent was much more noticeable back then! Now that he's playing Ohio native Finn Hudson, it's harder to hear it. Want to check out the scene in high definition? Season 1 of "Supernatural" comes out on Blu-Ray DVD this Tuesday, June 15. If Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles weren't reason enough to pick up this box set, Monteith certainly is! Source & Video
There wasn't much competition for " So You Think You Can Dance 's" seventh season premiere, which handily won Fox the ratings war Thursday night with okay numbers. A slew of reruns (including a strong episode of " The Mentalist ") went up against the reality show, in addition to the series cliffhanger finale of ABC's " FlashForward ," which pulled in lower ratings than the previous week's penultimate episode. NBC's " 100 Questions " wasn't noticed by even less, sandwiched between sitcom reruns. FOX averaged 8.2 million viewers and a 5.0 rating/9 share in households for the night. Next came CBS with 7.5 million and a 4.9/9, then ABC (3.8 million, 2.6/5), NBC (2.7 million, 1.8/3) and The CW (1.6 million, 1.0/2). FOX also took the 18-49 demo with a 3.0 rating, far ahead of the distant second-place CBS, which had a 1.6. NBC had a 1.1, ABC a 1.0 and The CW trailed with a 0.6. To Read More Click Here .
Supernatural fans can rest easy this summer thanks to Zap2It. The site confirmed that both Jim Beaver and Misha Collins will be back for season 6. It's unclear if that means for one episode or most of the season, but whatever the case, Sam and Dean won't be alone. The bigger question is how. Chuck's closing narration mentioned that Dean and Bobby's farewell marked the last time they'd see each other for a long while, which might mean that Chuck isn't the infallible deity I thought he was. Castiel was last seen heading back to Heaven to take control of the chaos left in Michael's absence, so somehow the new sheriff of Heaven will worm his way back into Dean's heart. It definitely means that angels aren't leaving anytime soon. Most importantly, more Cas and Bobby means more Misha Collins and Jim Beaver, which is a good thing. They've become as much a part of Supernatural as Sam and Dean, so it would've been hard to imagine a show without them. The show will already have one big change for season 6 (creator Eric Kripke stepping down as show-runner and is being replaced by writer/producer Sera Gamble). Having some familiar faces around should make the transition a lot easier. Source Here

Season six will be a season of mystery and shadow. Heaven and Hell have been left in complete disarray since the apocalyptic events of season five. And now, monsters, angels and demons roam across a lawless and chaotic landscape. And so Dean Winchester, who has retired from hunting and sworn never to return, finds himself being pulled back into his old life - pulled back by none other than Sam Winchester, who has escaped from Hell. The two reunite to beat back the rising tide of creatures and demon-spawn, but they quickly realize that neither are who they used to be, their relationship isn't what it used to be, and that nothing is what it seems.

The CW's Upfront presentation is this Thursday when the network will announce its fall lineup including new shows, returning shows, and new timeslots. While we know some things (six shows have already been renewed), the rest of the schedule is still a mystery. One thing that could definitely change is when fans can watch the sixth season of Supernatural. The show was already renewed, but its Thursday timeslot at 9pm might be in jeopardy. As proof, you only need to look at the CW's summer schedule. On May 27, Supernatural will air in its original timeslot with an encore of the season 5 premiere, but the show will then move to Friday at 9pm the following day. Starting Thursday, June 3, reruns of Moonlight will take over Thursdays at 9pm while Supernatural reruns will continue airing Friday nights, following Smallville. To Read More Click Here .
It's a match made in CW heaven. Supernatural star Jensen Ackles and longtime girlfriend, One Tree Hill actress Danneel Harris, got married Saturday in Dallas, PEOPLE has confirmed. Ackles, 32, and Harris, 31, who dated for three years and costarred in the 2007 romantic comedy Ten Inch Hero, announced their engagement in November. "Ultimately [I] want someone who you can pal around with and also be intimate with," Ackles told PEOPLE in 2006 about what he looks for in a woman. "Someone who can laugh at your jokes. It may sound cheesy, but someone who can be your best friend as well as your love." Source: People
It had to end this way, you understand that, right? Supernatural, despite its false reputation as another teen drama on the CW, has rarely dumbed itself down and delivered something that felt out of place in its season enders. Show creator Eric Kripke's vision of Supernatural ran for five seasons and five seasons only, and Thursday's episode, "Swan Song" sure felt like a series finale even though the show will live to see Season 6 (although it will do so without Kripke, who will hand over the title of showrunner to executive producer Sera Gamble). We always knew the apocalypse was coming, and that Sam and Dean would have to make great sacrifices to prevent Lucifer from walking the Earth and making us all his bitch. And that's what we got: Sam was headed for a pit in Hell to endure the worst thing imaginable for eternity, and Deanâhis job done and brother lostâwas off to live the "good" life, even though he'd always be haunted by the knowledge of what went down in that cemetery in Kansas. That is, until a few major events spun everything on its head. Kripke, speaking through his own vessel in prophet Chuck, acknowledged that while any moron can start a story, it takes a lot more effort to end one. Kripke also understands that endings can never satisfy everyone, and there's no doubt that some fans will have their issues with "Swan Song." But what Kripke did splendidly was leave much of what really happened open to interpretation, resulting in a beautiful final moment for Supernatural and one of the most satisfying season/series finales in recent memory. In the climax of "Swan Song," Sam said "yes" to Lucifer, allowing the Prince of the Netherworld to take his body with the hopes of retaking control and swan-diving into Lucifer's lock box, imprisoning Satan in Hell until some other nitwits accidentally set him free again. Things didn't go according to plan (understatement of the year), and Cas was blown to angel bits, Bobby had his neck snapped, and Dean ended up with a face full of LuSamfer's fist. (Side note: I was barely able to even watch Jensen Ackles' Elephant Man faceâhorrifying!) But what happened next was beautiful: Somewhere deep inside Lucifer, Sam began to take control, and we were treated to a spectacular montage of Sam and Dean through the years. Sam ultimately wrestled back control of his body, opened the gate to Lucifer's prison, and was about to jump for it when the archangel Michael returned, ready to fight his brother to the death. Instead, they both hurtled into Hell, the chasm closed, and Dean was left alone for a very uncomfortable moment. Sam and Dean's relationship is eerily similar, on several levels, to Lucifer and Michael's, but there are key differences that set them apart. Lucifer and Sam were both cast away (or cast themselves away) and had a troubled relationship with their fathers. Dean and Michael were eternally loyal to their fathers, possibly to a fault. But while Michael recognized that his brother had become something of a monster and wanted to destroy him, Dean saw Sam's strange powers and demon-blood-drinking addiction and stuck with him to the bitter end, doing all he could. Ahhh, humans. Ever since the Winchester brothers were pegged as the vessels for Lucifer and Michael, I've been dying to see how things would end up. And I'm glad Supernatural didn't take the wimpy way out. Kripke has always said the show is really about these two brothers and little more, and through tear-soaked eyes we were reminded of that via the multiple montages, which relived the good and bad from the past five seasons. Even with the fate of the world hanging in the balance, my heart was going out to these two brothers whose long road came to an end with gut-wrenching choices.
