Our genre TV lineup is almost back in full force as 2012 gets really rolling. Several more shows returned this week, and we added a new program to our lineup with the U.S. premiere of Merlin's fourth season. The biggest and best news, though, was Once Upon A Time, which bounced back in a big way after big losses in last year's final episodes.
Sci-fi TV is back in action as Peter travels Over There on the return of Fringe, Nicholas Lea goes all Eliot Ness on...
The CW and some of the other networks celebrate the New Year with some welcome originals including the return of Supernatural and Once Upon a Time, and the fourth season premiere of Syfy's Merlin.
The TV herd may have thinned out for 2011, but there's still plenty of new genre programming to be had. The Walking Dead, Fringe, The Vampire Diaries and The Secret Circle are all done for the year, but several other shows still have more episodes to get through before we ring in 2012.
Supernatural may still be alive and kicking in its seventh season without everyone's favorite trench-coated angel, but every fan of the show has the same question on their minds—When is Castiel coming back? Today, we finally get our answer.
It's miniseries time for Syfy as the channel heads into the Peter Pan of it all for a prequel called Neverland. The march of the midseason finales continues as Supernatural signs off with a big Bobby story, and Terra Nova gives us plenty of dino action when Taylor and Mira face-off in the jungle.
How's your favorite show doing as we enter the home stretch of the fall? This week, Terra Nova continued to decline, Grimm lost some of its premiere audience, The Vampire Diaries got a surprising spike and The Walking Dead remained on top of Sunday night cable.
If you're wondering how your favorite genre show is doing now that the fall lineup is almost completely in place, the chart above and the analysis below (which you'll start seeing weekly here at Blastr) reveal encouraging Live + Same numbers.
Supernatural is one of those rare shows able to blend episodic monster/planet/villain/problem of the day with an overarching plot that's lasted season after season. And a number of the monsters from the show have some grounding in popular culture: urban legends, real figures, and stories passed down year after year.
Cordelia and Spike married!? Well, Supernatural throws a little Buffy reunion with Charisma Carpenter and James Marsters (along with a little witchcraft for good measure), in what looks like another awesome episode. And we get the premiere of fairy tale inspired Once Upon a Time.
