With Smallville wrapping up its ten year run on the CW, the show is going out with a two-hour finale, on May 13, 2011.
“Paying homage to 10 seasons is no small task, and wrapping up each character and story arc has been extremely important to everyone involved in the show,” said executive producers Brian Peterson and Kelly Souders. “We’re excited to be able to make the final moments of SMALLVILLE a television event, as the character we’ve grown up with makes his legendary transformation.”
Taking on Darkseid and battling the darkest of his demons, this two-hour event will send Clark soaring towards his birthright to secure his place in history as the world’s greatest protector.
I still need to catch up on about two years worth of episodes, but some of the shows I’ve seen recently have been pretty good.

With Smallville wrapping up soon, The CW and Warner Bros. are looking for something (anything) to fill the slot left by the tweaked Superman series. The Teen Titans might be a great team concept to look to, but according to Variety, DC Entertainment, Warner Bros. TV, and The CW might be breaking up the team to focus on one – Raven.
“Raven” actually has some history at the CW: The character was featured in the animated Kids’ WB series “Teen Titans,” which ran for several years (including Kids’ WB’s brief run as the CW’s Saturday morning kids block). Tara Strong voiced Raven in the series, which also featured Robin, Starfire, Beast Boy and Cyborg.
With the mystical nature of the character (created by Marv Wolfman and George Perez), and the success of Supernatural, the combo of superheroine adventure taking on supernatural forces could be a slam dunk for the network. Of course it could also turn into another Birds of Prey…
The CW sent word that Smallville is coming back to the CW Network for a tenth season in 2010.
â€œSmallville,â€ a modern retelling of the Superman legend, stars Tom Welling as Clark Kent.Â The series moved to Friday nights this season, where it currently ranks as network televisionâ€™s #1 show in its time period among men 18-34 and men 18-49.Â Â Additionally, â€œSmallvilleâ€ has dramatically improved The CWâ€™s ratings performance in its Friday 8:00-9:00p.m.time period by 67% among adults 18-34 (1.5/6), 200% in men 18-34 (1.8/7), 75% in adults 18-49 (1.4/5), 183% in men 18-49 (1.7/6) and 74% in total viewers (3.12million).
The last two seasons have been really interesting with the introduction of supporting cast heroes, and if they can somehow convince Geoff Johns to come back and pen a few more episodes in season 10, and bring back Kristen Kruek, the CW will have sucked me back in, yet again.
Beginning this weekend (Saturday April 12), The Kids’ WB on The CW will broadcast a full hour of The Spectacular Spider-Man animated series. The first half hour of the double dose block will be a repeat airing of older episodes.
The complete schedule through the rest of April and a shot of J.J. getting strung up.
