It looks like Supernatural has found a welcome home on Wednesdays.

The CW drama premiered in its new timeslot to 1.8 million viewers last night, its strongest number since February 2010. That's also a 12 percent increase over the Season 7 finale.

On a very slow night dominated by the Presidential debate, read on for a ratings rundown...

They did good against the debates but this week they will be up against Criminal Minds. I love the Supernatural men but I will choose Aaron Hotchner of Criminal Minds to watch first.


Yay!!! The boys are back! :)
