    Vampire Elena needs to stop whining if they want these numbers to hold.

  • Thomas Deyvson

    Vampire Diaries is an epic tv show that is only showing his power. Always showed. Sorry haters, but we’re winning.

  • TVDxItachi

    CableVision viewers got the CW back. Maybe the increase is due to that. Im happy. TVD is god

  • Kara

    I’m confused, the ratings for the season four premiere was at 3.48, 10/11/2012. What am I missing?

    Great to see TVD doing so good in its fourth season.

  • BJH

    @ Kara: TVD scored 3.18m viewers for its premiere. If you click through to TVBTN’s linked page, you’ll find the correct number. So, though the demo hasn’t equalled the premiere, the rating surpassed it.

  • Wagner

    @Kara, those numbers are modified, the show’s premiere hits 3.18 million viewers and not 3.48.

  • Martine

    Thats a pretty big improvement. I hate the show, but good for them. I agree with EatMorePez. People can only stand so many girly temper tantrums.

    Compared to last season’s fourth episode (on 10/6/11) THE Vampire Diaries was up 24% in total viewers, 21% in adults 18-34 and 25% in adults 18-49.

    That is, indeed, impressive.

    The person that said Vampire Elena needs to stop whining is right. It’s a carry over from the human whining Elena and it’s not appealing. I watch it more to see the other leading characters, I’m so tired of that story line or the character’s story line. Excellent episode. The first 2 left me wondering what the point was of season 4. I love the originals and the history being embedded into the modern day story line. Love the show.

  • LeeB

    We also seriously need to see Elijah back on a regular basis. He’s an excellent character and actor – Daniel Gillies He was great on Saving Hope, which NBC is not showing any longer I have to find out how to see the next season being shown in Canada.
