via press release:


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.


For the night, The CW had its best Thursday since 10/3 in W18-34 (1.5/5), and its best since 10/17 in A18-34 (1.0/3). It was up versus last week by +67% in A18-34, +88% in W18-34, +17% in total viewers (2.13M) and +29% in A18-49 (0.9/3).

    Great for Vampire Diaries tying for #3 with Fox and ahead of ABC. CW should’ve aired repeats last Thursday, but glad to see it rebound to normal #s.

    I think CW should revamp its midseason schedule now that Carrie and Nikita are about to wrap up and two new shows are left to premiere as well.

    This is what the CW should do with its Midseason Schedule:

    Monday 8:00 Reign 9:00 Star Crossed

    Tuesday 8:00 HUNDRED 9:00 SUPERNATURAL

    Wednesday 8:00 ARROW 9:00 The Tomorrow People

    Thursday 8:00 The Vampire Diaries 9:00 The Originals

    Friday 8:00 Hart of Dixie 9:00 Beauty and the Beast

    I know that The Originals is doing good on Tuesdays but Isn’t everyone tired of seeing shows fail after VD? I think to solve this problem Originals should be paired at 9.

    Moving HOD and BATB to Fridays will do no worse than keeping it on Mondays and will perform the same.. This will give the CW a chance to see if they can build on their Monday Nights the same way the built significantly on Tuesdays this year.

    Hundred seems to be a good match with Supernatural on Tuesday nights and I would rather it premiere with a compatible show then depend on TVD as a lead in show that will lose a chunk of its audience. As recent history has shown any show that pairs with Supernatural does solid to good #s.

    Let Reign and Star Crossed fend for themselves on Monday Nights anything has to be better than its current Monday Night Line up of HOD and Beauty barely pulling 680,000 viewers and 1 million as of last week. If Reign could maintain a 0.6 and 1.7 viewers it is a win.

    CW should switch it up and finally build on its schedule.

    I think it’s a little early to have Reign fend for itself. Reign and TTP should be given renewals and The 100 and Star Crossed should replace them in January.
