LOS ANGELES — Jan. 2, 2014 — The holidays may be over, but TVGN (TV Guide Network) invites viewers to indulge in binge-viewing three fan-favorite television series from The CW Network this month.

 

Every episode to date of THE TOMORROW PEOPLE (Saturday, Jan. 4 starting at 2:00 PM, ET/PT), THE ORIGINALS (Saturday, Jan. 11 starting at 2:00 PM, ET/PT) and REIGN (Saturday, Jan. 18 starting at 2:00 PM, ET/PT) will air back-to-back on TVGN in all-day marathons, giving fans and new viewers an opportunity to catch up on each series starting from their premieres.

 

“There is no better way to catch-up on great television than to binge every episode from the beginning of a series,” said Brad Schwartz, President of Entertainment and Media, TVGN. “If you haven't seen these three shows that everyone is talking about, make a dent in your couch, turn the lights down, and catch up to the awesomeness that is THE TOMORROW PEOPLE, THE ORIGINALS and REIGN.”

 

“The CW is thrilled to team up with TVGN to give viewers the opportunity to catch up on our three new hit series, THE ORIGINALS, THE TOMORROW PEOPLE and REIGN,” said Mark Pedowitz, President, The CW. “Now a whole new audience has the chance to experience these exciting dramas from the very beginning while fans of the series can see all the twists and turns they might have missed so far so everyone can be up to speed on all the action when these shows return with original episodes later this month on The CW.”

 

ABOUT THE ORIGINALS:

When Klaus Mikaelson, the original vampire-werewolf hybrid, receives a mysterious tip that a plot is brewing against him in New Orleans, he returns to the city his family helped build.  Klaus’ questions lead him to a reunion with his diabolical former protégé, Marcel, a charismatic vampire who has total control over the human and Supernatural inhabitants of New Orleans.  Tensions between the town’s Supernatural factions are nearing a breaking point as Marcel rules with absolute power.  With the help of his brother Elijah, Klaus vows to reclaim what was once his – the power, the city and his family.  THE ORIGINALS returns to The CW with all-new episodes on Tuesday, Jan. 14 at 8:00 PM, ET/PT.

 

ABOUT REIGN:

Hidden between the lines of the history books is the story of Mary Stuart, the young woman the world will come to know as Mary, Queen of Scots.  The teenage Mary is a headstrong monarch, poised at the very beginning of her tumultuous rise to power. As Mary arrives in France to formalize her engagement to the dashing Prince Francis, a royal triangle forms when Mary meets Francis’ illegitimate half-brother Bash.  Fierce political foes and dark forces conspire to sabotage Mary’s marriage and even threaten her life, but Mary is determined to rule the new land and balance the demands of her country and her heart. REIGN returns to The CW on Thursday, Jan. 23 at 9:00 PM, ET/PT.

 

ABOUT THE TOMORROW PEOPLE:

Stephen Jameson was a normal teenager until he began hearing voices and teleporting in his sleep, never knowing where he might wake up.  In desperation, Stephen listens to one of the voices in his head, and it leads him to the Tomorrow People — John, Cara and Russell — and their astonishing abilities of telekinesis, teleportation and telepathic communication.  Though he is one of them, Stephen is not willing to turn his back on his human family, and he sets out on his own path — a journey that could take him into the shadowy past or into an unknown future with THE TOMORROW PEOPLE. THE TOMORROW PEOPLE returns to The CW with all new episodes on Wednesday, Jan. 15 at 9:00 PM, ET/PT.

    Nice try to get new viewers. I doubt it will help TTP, but I can see Reign and TO rising.

  • CrimTV

    Good for The CW.

    @Alan

    Why won’t it help TTP?

  • chicco

    The Originals & Reign are my favorite new shows this year

  • John A

    3 hit CW series? Only The Originals is the new hit CW show. Hope that The Originals get more viewers from this. Dont care about crap Reign or TTP.

  • Brandy

    Yay!I hope this helps TO,Reign (Reign especially )gain viewers & ratings when they return.I don’t care about TTP,I agree with Alan , I doubt this will help TTP.

  • david

    great idea to show the new three shows on TV GN for more exposer. I remember they did this last year with Arrow on WGN America too. I hope it helps the three shows to rise in the ratings when they come back with new episodes.

  • Kissan

    The only show I hope picks up more viewers over this is Reign. The Originals already has enough viewers and I don’t give a crap about TTP.

  • Alan

    I just feel like Reign and TO are more appealing at this point to the audiences. Even if I don’t like Reign at all and honestly want it cancelled, and TO even if it doesn’t get new viewers it will still be safe from cancellation, while since the very beginning TTP failed to reach the Arrow/sci-fi audiences and the storyline keeps getting worse every time, and the Monday move will just kill it even more! right now it’s half-dead, but who knows, that’s just my point of view.

  • Sama

    Here’s hoping this’ll benefit Reign! I love this show and I’m working my arse off voting for it to win the PCA!

  • Sama

    And @John, you’re the reason why TO fans get a bad rep.

  • Bluebells

    @John A
    How do you know Reign is crap when you haven’t even watched it?

  • John A

    The Originals fans dont have a bad rep. The Reign fangirls are far worse. They even mock TVD as a lead in. Imagine how Reign would do without it? 0.2-0.3 just like BATB.

  • Sed

    Honestly, I think this will help TTP and Reign more than TO. I think TTP and Reign audience will grow.

  • Dan

    Reign is actually doing really good. You can’t just look at ratings because there are other sources that tell you how popular a show is. For example, if your like me, I don’t have time to sit down EVERY Thursday night at 9 to watch reign, but I still love the show so I watch it on my CW App. Then there is also iTunes were if you check the tv shows charts, Reign is the FIRST CW show to pop up on the list. So ratings aren’t the only thing to take in consideration to determine if a show is doing good. The fact that Reign is the #1 CW downloaded show on iTunes says a lot.

  • Sama

    TO fans are so ignorant. And you get TVD fans who don’t even watch TO to vote for you for PCA. Say what you want, Reign’s fandom is like a tight knit family whileTO just continue to diss Reign and TTP, as you did in your previous comment.

  • Bluebells

    @John A
    Reign fangirls mock TVD? Isn’t that what you are doing? mocking TTP and Reign,shows you clearly haven’t even watched?

  • Sophie

    There are lots of way to watch tv shows, when iam reading my newspaper they said There are only 2,2 million people watch Reign but iam disagree because there no time to sit in front of the tv and watch so the most people watch it on other website like me ! So I hope Reign will win the CW People Choice award.
