‘Sweeps Weeks’ is upon us in ‘television land’ and that means that TV series are pulling out heavy hitting first run episodes for audiences to delve into and to entice advertisers to spend their money on buying ad spots during the shows. This past week’s episode of the hit CW Network series Supernatural titled I Know What You Did Last Summer swept into the fray with a powerful storyline about how Sam Winchester (Jared Padalecki) dealt with his grief over losing older brother Dean Winchester (Jensen Ackles) to death as Dean made good on his deal with a crossroads demon that came due at the end of season 3. The episode also introduced us to Anna Milton, a woman who hears ‘angelic conversations’, which makes her target of interest for angel and demon alike. We also got to meet up with the newest demon ‘big bad, Alastair (Mark Rolston) who seems to know Dean from the older Winchester’s time spent in hell.
Despite being pre-empted in many areas by CW Affiliates choosing to air Football instead, I Know What You Did Last Summer still garnered an impressive 3.91 overnight rating which means that Supernatural continues to hit its stride and continues to gain audience approval and viewer-ship in what is considered a very ‘killer’ Thursday night time slot. Just goes to show that those Winchester brothers are kick ass tough and they have what it takes to ‘go the distance’ (cue Eye of the Tiger Music’).
Supernatural continues on into ‘Sweeps Week’ with an episode titled “Heaven and Hell,” which will air on Thursday the 20th at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT on The CW and will be the last original episode of 2008! Additional new episodes of “Supernatural” will resume airing on Thursday January 15, 2009 (The day before Jensen Ackles’ big screen horror movie My Bloody Valentine: 3D opens nation wide in select theaters).
