Supernatural Wins TV Guide Magazine's Fan Favorite Cover Poll
The votes are in. Supernatural, The CW's little horror show about two monster-hunting brothers, has won TV Guide Magazine's first-ever Fan Favorite cover contest. Cast members Jim Beaver and Misha Collins aided with Tweets, as did a panoply of websites devoted to the series. When the 5.5 million votes were tallied, an impressive last-minute surge pushed Supernatural over the top. "We promoted, promoted, promoted the contest," says Alice Jester, who runs the site thewinchesterfamilybusiness.com. "We had a link on the site, we had a daily presence on Twitter and Facebook, and when Jim and Misha Tweeted, it energized the fans even more," she reports. "The fans wanted a TV Guide cover so badly. The show gives us so much, and the fact that it's small and underappreciated makes us work hard to get others to know about it, too."
