    ABC just confirmed that Last Resort & 666 Park Ave. is cancelled! :O

    are cancelled*

    And… we meet the Bondoel of TVD fandom. Keep the sparkle alive TVDxItachi.


    I can tell you one thing, SPN fans do not care one bit about what TVD does at least I don’t.

    Seriously, why do crazy fans of other CW shows think we care how their show does? Just a few weeks ago I had the same argument with an obsessed Nikita fan. The only ratings SPN fans give a rat’s ass about are the SPN ratings. You’re bitching about Arrow and TVD (God only knows why) leave us out of it.

    Also the argument the crazy fan presents for why “some” SPN fans might be bitter is even more ridiculous than the claim. SPN and TVD were both on Thursday but on the same channel. They never went against each other. That’s probably the stupidest thing I heard on this thread and that’s saying something.

  • TVDxItachi

    Lol your funny anonymous. VD is king……..of The CW.

  • cheers

    How another new curse the Brothers & Sisters curse? They haven’t gotten anything going there since.

  • Brent

    @anonymous it was just actually one person who started this so called “war” on the spn fandom

  • TVDxItachi

    @Tessa, its not stupid and a pretty simple concept. SPN was moved to Fridays due to its low ratings and VD was the lead in. The shows weren’t compatible i guess. SPN was left for dead on fridays and almost faced cancellation. I stopped watching SPN due to TVD. If that doesnt clarify my theory for you then may the heavens bless you.

  • Vance

    TVDxItachi, just stop it. You’re embarassing fans of The Vampire Diaries.

  • Alex C

    Note to TVD and Arrow fans: Stop being idiots. Its possible to support both shows and useless to make a rivalry between each other. It is the same network. TVD is 1 and Arrow is 2 as expected.

  • Mi

    The silly Arrow vs. TVD stans war here is so stupid.. people, the CW need more shows as strong as TVD and Arrow or even stronger than both of them, and who cares which one of them does better than the other as long as they both do well.

  • Michael

    Trust me guys, TVD’s fandom doesn’t behave like TVDxItachi…. There’s always 1 rotten apple, in every fandom lol.

  • Declan

    Whenever people don’t like something (in this case a TV show) they always make up stuff. I forgot who said it but I don’t see how POI is not a hit for CBS. Sure it doesn’t produce 3.8 every week but come on look it up on google for crying out loud. Petar nailed it on the head with saying POI was tied with NCIS of all shows for 4th among all TV shows for a week.

  • Sarah

    They need to move Scandal and use Grey’s Anatomy as a lead in while they still can. Scandal is doing worse than Private Practice in that slot and likely won’t survive a move

  • Brent

    i agree with michael, mi, and alex c
    Im so happy the cw has three shows over a 1.0 and two of them are averaging above 3 million
    These three shows are keeping the cw alive right now
    (and i watch all 3 shows and love them all, tvd is probably my favorite and yes im glad thats its still number 1 on the network, but it cant always be at the top and its not arrow’s fault if it doesnt)

  • buddhaboi

    i agree. cw is lucky to have 3 shows doing so well.
    was hoping batb might make it 4. time will tell.
    supernatural is my favorite but the other two are good as well.

  • Chalice93

    I find it funny that a few TVD fans are bragging about a 0.1 increase in the 18-49 demo even though Arrow is CRUSHING TVD by a million viewers and 2 tenths in 25-54. But hey….

  • Tom

    B&B down to 0.6 in as many episodes. I wonder how many more til it hits 0.5.

  • anonymous

    There is NO WAR between the two fandom! It’s only hardcore TVD lover who see war in everything people say even if it has nothing to do about TVD! I dont care about TVD ratings, I dont care if TVD is the king of the CW! I only care about Arrow and SPN ratings and I wish that my two favorite show are getting renew!But I HATE it when I see hardcore TVD lover blasting on the actor of my favorite show! Did SPN or Arrow fans bitch on Ian Nina or Paul?

  • s0303

    @chalice93 those numbers don’t matter, it’s the 18-49 that does…also tvd is in the 4th season…arrow in its 1st…doubt if arrow will still be that high in 3 years…
