A strong Thursday night for The CW. Last night’s THE VAMPIRE DIARIES matched its season highs in both A18-34 (1.4/5) and W18-34 (2.0/6), beating both Fox’s X Factor and ABC’s Once Upon a Time in Wonderland in both demos. TVD also beat ABC in A18-49 (1.2/4), and tied Fox in the hour.


TVD doubled last week’s rating in W18-34, was up +75% in A18-34, rose +24% in total viewers (2.57M), and was up +33% in A18-49.


REIGN also matched its season highs in A18-34 (0.7/2) and W18-34 (1.0/3). Week to week, REIGN grew +75% in A18-34, +67% in W18-34, +8% in total viewers (1.696M) and held steady in A18-49.

  • lll

    CW is having a good year with their new shows.

  • Jake

    Reign is awesome….enough said.

  • Percysowner

    Good for Reign. I don’t watch it, but it’s nice to see something totally different make it. Probably not good for The Tomorrow People, but good for Reign.

  • Wright

    Renew Reign now.

  • tv2day

    Reign is not exactly different but has proven to be interesting.

  • TomKH

    Please, please, please let TVD adjust up so that it would beat The X-Factor.

  • Brandy

    Good for Reign & VD

  • Kim

    Happy to see Reign mentioned positively.

  • gaz

    man tvd and spn will be around forever if this is the best all these new shows can do and they creatively have peaked love how the pr machine is bigging up a 0.7 which in reality is piss poor for a debut when a nine year veteran is pulling a 0.9 and that show peaked at season five.

    Go Reign Go Reign :)

  • Mai

    For a show I was mocking two weeks ago, I’m super rooting for Reign.

  • feinn

    CW spinning a 50 percent drop in demo for Reign out of TVD…impressive

  • Bryan


    There is no show that has been able to retain TVD ratings. Reign is a good show with a loyal audience.

  • david

    great for TVD to beat ABC and tie with Fox and beat them both in the younger demos. Better for Reign too.

  • jamie

    It would be nice if Reign got back to 2 million viewers but this is okay I guess.

  • Michael

    What would CW be like without Supernatural and TVD? ;) Lol!
