How much of a TV ratings detective are you? Think you can name a show looking only at its ratings trend?

Here's the 2009-2010 adults 18-49 ratings trend for a broadcast primetime scripted show (its new episodes only, repeats have been removed, and the episode ratings are shown in order without any date gaps).

Guesses?

If no one guesses correctly, I will return with hints, but that will require me to think up a hint that isn't an immediate give away.

I will return later today to confirm the correct answer assuming someone has gotten it, but because of my schedule there may be quite a lag between a correct guess and my confirmation.

Depending on how well this works, I might do it again. Or not!

Update: It was too easy! SurvivorForever's first guess had it: Vampire Diaries. Here are the ratings and dates.

9/13 9/20 9/27 10/4 10/11 10/18 10/25 11/1 11/8 11/15
2.1 1.6 1.7 1.6 1.7 1.8 2.0 1.9 1.9 1.6
