The voting took place in late October and fans were allowed to vote multiple times. Thanks to a very coordinated online fan effort, Supernatural fans were very determined to win this cover, spending hours voting online each day. The word was spread by fan sites like this one and through Facebook, Twitter, emails, texts, and whatever means necessary to remind fans daily to vote.
This is not just a victory for "Supernatural," this is a victory for the fans that have long stood by their under-the-radar show. You don't know how many times I've heard through the years covering Supernatural the fans cry out in frustration that their show again didn't make the cover while other CW shows like "Gossip Girl" and "The Vampire Diaries" got their turn. Even the special TV Guide covers of Warner Brothers shows issued at Comic Con this past July didn't include "Supernatural."
So, remember this mock cover that we cheekily circulated on this site last summer? We won't have to do these fake ones anymore.
Congratulations Supernatural and most importantly, congratulations fans. You earned this!
