The last time Castiel graced our TV screens was in Captives, episode 9.14, which aired all the way back in February.
That makes us kind of grumpy.
BUT GUESS WHAT?!
TUESDAY APRIL 15TH CAS IS BACK!
We at the Castiel Fan Network want to give him a warm welcome, and we want to do that the best way we know how, with a ratings boosting twitter watch party!
Here’s how you can help:
-If you are in a Nielsen household, watch live on your television. This is how US television ratings are measured. If you’re not sure if you’re a Nielsen household, you’re not. But there are still ways to make your watching count towards ratings!
-Record the episode on your DVR even if you do watch live. DVR viewings are counted into Nielsen numbers. Make sure to watch the recording as soon as possible, the earlier you watch the more it counts for the Live +7 and Live +3 Nielsen numbers.
-If you don’t have a DVR and can’t watch live, instead of watching an unofficial stream or download, watch (or rewatch) the episode on the official CW Supernatural site. Those viewings count towards ratings too. The episode is normally posted to the website at or shortly after midnight EST.
-Another way to help is to boost the Nielsen twitter ratings. Tweet the episode using the #Supernatural hashtag. Per this article, Nielsen starts counting tweets for an episode 3 hours before airtime, and continues counting for 3 hours after the episode ends, so that gives you 7 hours to hop on twitter and give Castiel your support by using the #Supernatural hashtag. In addition, in the time since our last watch party for 9.17, we found out that Nielsen continues counting views of tweets until 5AM EST the following morning, so if you’re awake all night, keep on retweeting those #Supernatural tweets! Remember to manually type, or copy and paste #Supernatural so it doesn’t autocomplete to the fake #Supernaturai tag!
-Only US based tweets count, BUT retweets hold the same weight as original tweets, so if you have international friends watching and tweeting with the #Supernatural hashtag retweet them so they’ll count too. If you are watching from outside of the US, use the hashtag so we can retweet you! Add OUSA to your tweets to make it even easier, that way your US friends will know just what to do!
-Another thing to keep in mind, per twitter analytics, tweets with more than two hashtags can be flagged as spam, so stick with just #Supernatural and whatever secondary tag you choose! Our friends at @Destiel_Network paired up with our friends at @SaveCastiel and are attempting to trend #HelloCas which we think is a great option for a second tag. Just remember to stick to two tags total, we want your tweets to count!
When we had our watch party for 9.17 in support of Misha’s directorial debut Supernatural made it into the top 5 for Nielsen twitter ratings that night at #5, and Supernatural was the top rated CW show that week!
We want to do even better to welcome Castiel back!

New Supernatural episode tomorrow!
Tune in and help with the ratings! Cliff notes version:
- Watch live if you’re a Nielsen family
- Log onto Twitter and use #Supernatural & #HelloCas tags
- Use “OUSA” for tweets with tags if you’re outside the USA so those inside can RT them for you and make them count.
Please signal boost!
You know, if I was a parent, it would be at this point that I’d rip the game from his hands, stash it in my backpack, and force him to enjoy history goddamnit. This vacation cost a lot and the game is only for the hotel and travel time.
imagine trying to force someone to think that stonehenge is fun

Qiandao Lake is a man-made lake located in Chun’an County, China, where archeologists have discovered in 2001 ruins of an underwater city. The city is at a depth of 26-40 meters and was named “Lion City”. There would have been 290 000 people living in this city during more than 1300 years. Touristic expeditions are projected.
