The Vampire Diaries Episode 503

via press note:

Last night, THE Vampire Diaries beat both ABC and NBC in the hour in A18-34, W18-34, and A18-49.

It was TVD's most watched episode (2.84M) since February (2/21/13), and its best A18-49 rating since March (3/21).

Week to week, TVD was up 33% in total viewers, 18% in A18-34 (1.3/5), 30% in A18-49 and 6% in W18-34 (1.8/6).

The series premiere of REIGN gave The CW its second best performance in the Thursday 9-10pm time period in a year in total viewers (2M), W18-34 (1.0/3) and A18-49 (0.8/2) (10/11/12, the series premiere of Beauty And The Beast, which aired opposite the Vice Presidential Debate on the other broadcast networks), and since Nov. 2012 in A18-34 (0.7/2), behind only the special airing of THE ORIGINALS in the time period.

REIGN improved on last season's time period average in total viewers and all key demos, +25% in total viewers, +40% in A18-34, +43% in W18-34, and +33% in A18-49.

In DVR viewing last week, THE Vampire Diaries grew 46% in total viewers in L+3 vs. L+SD ratings, 49% in A18-34, 56% in A18-49, and 53% in W18-34.

    Best ep of the season for TVD, but they really do need to get with the Supernatural crew about making a car ride on a sound stage look real. ;)
