Tonight The Vampire Diaries  has a shot at doing something very unusual for a CW show: coming in second in is time period. Last week, it premiered to a 1.6 adults 18-49 rating, beating NBC's 30 Rock/Up All Night combo and tying ABC's Last Resort. This week, FOX is airing baseball instead of The X Factor. Monday night's game averaged a 1.6 adults 18-49 rating.  (If it rains again in St. Louis, there might not even be a game at 8PM tonight.)  Arrow and Supernatural retained 100% of last week's ratings, and The Vampire Diaries has a similarly loyal fanbase. Last Resort's ratings have declined every week. Can The Vampire Diaries pull it off? We won't know the answer until tomorrow afternoon when the final numbers are released, due to FOX's live baseball coverage and the San Francisco ABC Affiliate carrying Thursday's 49ers game. In the meantime, make your predictions.
