Entertainment Weekly Newsstand Sales Are Up

"Fall TV Preview" helped push 2016 past previous year.

Time Inc. is celebrating some welcome good news. Newsstand sales of Entertainment Weekly in 2016 were up 4% compared to 2015.

Leading the way last year was the “Fall TV Preview” double issue, which ranks as the publication’s best-selling edition in three years. There were two newsstand covers: one, distributed exclusively through Barnes & Noble, highlighted Supernatural, while the other cover featured various small screen stars.

Supernatural was chosen by means of an online poll for which around 2.5 million votes were received. It’s a golden age of television all they way around, these days.

A spokesperson for EW tells FishbowlNY the issue with previous larger newsstand sales was a 2013 “Summer Movie Preview.” EW subscribers received the Supernatural cover.
