    everyone saying “18-49 do not trick or treat” 18-49 do go to halloween parties therefore people would not be home at 8 to watch TVD.

  • Angelo

    Arrow and tomorrow people hit lows on Wednesday and now the vampire diaries Thursday, hopefully they will all bounce back big next week!! Due to world series and Halloween

  • Chris

    I love how when the promos feature Dullena the ratings for the vampire diaries are always down. Whenever the promos feature Stefan (Paul Wesley) or Stelena the ratings go up. :D

    the Paul Wesley effect. should be trending by now. lol

    #tvd ratings make me happy. :)

    Actually, four did. If you’re going to post Nielsen conspiracy nonsense, could you at least put some effort into making it good? :roll:

  • Michael

    It was going to happen sooner than later, TVD finally hit below 1.0 for the CW. Not too shabby, in its 5th season! Yes, Halloween was yesterday, but it still applies.

    Next weeks prediction:

    BATB 0.3 and HoD 0.4 (will remain Steady)
    TO 1.0 and SPN 0.8/0.9 (really Dog Dean Afternoon?)
    Arrow 0.9 and TTP 0.7 (not really sure it stabilized yet)
    TVD 1.2 and Reign 0.7/0.6
    Note: Impressive for Reign, to have stabilized even against tough competition and on Halloween. Personal tip: Don’t air a new episode on Halloween.
    Though TVD Viewers are down, Reign was steady. Last year, BATB did fell, when TVD did. This is, I hope, porbably a good sign for Reign. (INCREASE next week)

    Supernatural and The Originals were higher rated than The Vampire Diaries this week. I am a fan of TVD, watched last nights episode live, and must say that the last few weeks have been mediocre. I find myself looking forward to Tuesday nights more!

    @Vanessa S.

    I was referring to those who say things like “take that TVD” or “ha ha ha” and stuff like that. Certainly SPN fans have the right to celebrate being #1. I’m the person who predicted last May that by next May SPN would be the #1 show on the CW (consistently) and I stand by that prediction, but I just don’t like rubbing it in the face of fans of other shows. So yay for SPN but I’m sorry to TVD fans because I know going under a 1.0 has to be disappointing for them.

    NBC should have more SNL specials.

  • j

    Considering that Supernatural is not the topic of this post, as it did not air on Thursday, that is why celebrating is being considered obnoxious and assy.

    If it was a post about CW ratings, or Tuesday ratings, it would be more appropriate and not douchey.

  • Lucas

    NOOOO Parenthood =/

  • Jeff R.

    Charlie Brown doubles Once Wonderland’s rating. I bet ABC has enough Charlie Brown specials banked to fill the timeslot all season. Just sayin…

  • Truth


    Fan Excuse Bingo and Fan Excuse Bingo! :D

    Supernatural is on top, and that’s the truth! :D

  • Vanessa S.

    **eyeroll** We’re not on our high horses. We’re just h a p p y. No crime in that. No one is being nasty about it.

  • k:Alex

    And Sean had some good scenes.
    But a lot of people simple don’t watch it, hate the actors or something, because it had 3 different lead-in’s and still the same numbers.

  • Nasir

    No TVD! Series low

  • AllOfHerTw!st

    Elementary is a DVR powerhouse! ;-) :-)

  • anti-bondoel

    Hey Jon aka Bondoel you can’t hide your jealousy. :)

  • joy

    vanessa S,no crime in celebrating-sure.rubbing it in other’s faces-not so much.TO also did better than Tvd,didn’t they? are they screaming,no but happy for their show.that’s the difference!! i thought the the beasties were irriting now supernatural fans is probably leading in that department too!!

    I think he was referring to original programming only.
