I AM FILLED WITH DISPROPORTIONATE RAGE!

According to the latest news....CW is postponing the mid-season premiere of Supernatural so that they can play Vampire Diaries and Nikita on Friday instead. 

I think my icon says it all.

And since Sam has had his say in icon form,  Dean would like to weigh in...

Its especially annoying given all the publicity the fans have drummed up for the show in these last few months. WTF CW???

I'm still clinging to the hope that this is some elaborate hoax...because seriously...especially after all the articles this week from the people who watched the pre-screen and recommended that their readers watch the show??! Why does the CW insist on shooting itself in the foot?!

UGH! SO ENRAGED.

And it looks, from what I've seen on ONTD_SPNP, like they're giving different rationales to different people, *none* of which justify waiting to make the announcement until the bloody day before.

The CW is now second only to SyFy at the top of my list of Networks I Will Never, Ever Work For (if, y'know, I manage to get into writing for television).

Sorry, I've lost all coherency...I've had a ridiculous week of work and Supernatural has been my light at the end of the tunnel...

EPIC ANGER FOREVER!

What the hell?? ;__; That's so stupid... I can't believe they're airing reruns of other shows instead of the new SPN ep! Jesus. That sucks. :( I was so looking forward to tomorrow night...

I am so ANGRY. DISPROPORTIONATELY ANGRY.

It just doesn't make any sense on ANY level! For CHRISSAKES! I HATE EVERYTHING NOW!

(uh...much like Sammy, I do have a bit of a temper problem)

I heard that there was some type of editing problem and they had to re-shoot something? But you think they could have noticed before this and had time to fix it already...And the least they can do is play some Supernatural ep on Friday even if it isn't the new one...

But the press already got the pre-screeners! The episode is FINISHED! If it's some delay with the second episode back, then put a repeat NEXT week, for chrissakes.

Ugh...I'm so mad...

But they've been advertising FOREVER that the new episode is Jan 28th. I've seen it on CW, TBS and USA. Are they stupid? Or I guess the better question should be 'how stupid are they?'

Very.

I KNOW! IT DOESN'T MAKE SENSE!

This is why I'm still holding out hope that this is all some horrible mistake...but it really doesn't look like a hoax.

I'M SO ANGRY I WOULD TOTALLY BOYCOTT THE NETWORK...you know, if they weren't holding my favorite show hostage...ugh!

WHAT?!? Ugh, the one time I would actually have TV access, too...I was so looking forward to tomorrow night. Epic fail, CW, epic fail.

This is NOT COOL. I can't believe they decided this the day before it airs. WHAT IS WRONG WITH THEM??

On one hand, so not cool to pull such crap on us poor hiatus-deprived viewers. On the other hand, I will be out of town Friday and would miss debut of new episode if aired as planned. Still, not happy it had to be this way even if it worked for my situation.

Well, that's good for you! (I'm not being sarcastic...I'm honestly glad it worked out for at least one of us :P)

Sadly, what this does is not only disappoint me this week, but also screw me up for March 4th. Sigh.

dude, I was on tumblr and thought, that's a joke, right??? Anyways, the devoted Vampire Diaries & Nikita fans do their best to watch it on Thursday night. American Idol auditions suck compared to the other quality episodes. And people watch the shows that they miss online the next day!

Indeed! It's a flimsy excuse to marginalize one show in favour of others.

I'm trying not to be bitter, but seriously...if Supernatural had half-naked girls and sex would this be happening?

(I think I'm failing at not being bitter)

If Supernatural had half-naked girls and THAT much sex as TVD - probably not. And that's sad, because I like that this is one of the shows where they don't go for the sex the moment they have a bit too much time left after dealing with actual plot problems [like less than 25 minutes plot and then the rest of time is for kissing in different states of undress].

Does that really late announcement about pushing SPN back came after TVD aired? I mean do you think they aired TVD and then noticed the numbers they had for that show and thought that they had to somehow save the rating? Or they decided that before when they suddenly noticed what they are going against in that time slot? [And I honestly don't know why you should know that and why I am asking that to you :) ]

Actually, I do know that, because the news came in around 3pm my time...which is 2 hours BEFORE TVD airs on the East Coast. So, it wasn't that they already saw the numbers, it was 2 hours before they would have any indication of the numbers.

Now the rumour is that it was Smallville's fault for the delay (a shooting plot they - suddenly - found in poor taste), I'm not sure if that's true or not, but even if it is...why delay Supernatural too and give us stupid excuses?

I mean, regardless of this decision, the network still advertises their T&A shows (TVD, Gossip Girl) way more than it advertises Supernatural...devil's advocate: could be a budgeting issue, with Supernatural using it's advertising budget on higher production values, but again, bitter-me really doesn't think that is the case. If they can't sell sex, they don't know how to sell something.
