via press note:
Last night’s extremely eventful Vampire Diaries rose 13% in total viewers (3.2M) versus its last original on 11/15, and gained 15% in A18-49 (1.5/4), while holding steady in A18-34(1.5/5).
TVD outrated both ABC and NBC in the hour in A18-34, A18-49 and W18-34, and also drew more total viewers in the 8:30half hour than NBC.
Beauty and the Beast also gained versus last week, up two tenths in both A18-34 (0.7/2) and A18-49 (0.8/2), and up to 2.15M total viewers.
There were preemptions for the NFL in Atlanta last night, and in Baltimore for high school football, so these numbers are likely to change this afternoon.
