Very good TV Guide.  My hats off for this brilliant scoop.  At last, the rumors can be put to rest.  I needed a good laugh today.

On April 23rd, the Supernatural episode airing is titled "Jump The Shark."  As has been reported by a few media outlets, and something that has caused a HUGE uproar in the fandom for months, a 3rd Winchester brother will be introduced.  For anyone who has no idea what "Jump The Shark" is, stop here and go to this wiki entry (since the original website seems to be gone).  Then come back and read Mr. Kripke's fantastic statement that he issued to TV Guide.  He truly is fucking with us.

"When we were breaking the story about the third Winchester brother, we knew the fans would scream that we had jumped the shark. Of course, adding a new sibling or relative to an established series is a classic and cherished shark jump, Cousin Oliver being the patron saint of the practice. (And sure enough, Sam and Dean are eating at 'Cousin Oliver's Diner' in the episode). Anyway, it became clear that we should beat the fans to the punch and title the episode, 'Jump the Shark.' Though rejected titles included: 'When Leo Joined Growing Pains,' or 'The Raven Symone Episode.'

"For fans who are worried that we are truly jumping the shark... watch the episode, decide for yourself. Personally, I don't think we're gassing up the motorcycle quite yet, but you tell me. And stay tuned for next season, when the boys take trips to London and Hawaii (haunted Tiki dolls!) and Sam and Ruby get married. And Ted McGinley joins the cast as the thoughtful (but hot!) college professor."

Ha-ha. Knew it was a wind-up!

Sad thing is there's people having kittens about the Sam and Ruby nuptials on the tv guide boards as we speak ... :roll::

Eric, you're a very bad person. Keep it up, please.
