thevampirediaries The CW Thursday Night Ratings Are Strong

Smallville fans who are miffed at The CW for moving your favorite show, you probably don’t want to read this.

The CW’s Thursday night time slot is showing serious ratings momentum as The Vampire Diaries posted its best ratings yet since the series premiere.

The Vampire Diaries drew in an estimated 3.8 million viewers last Thursday, October 15th.

Behind The Vampire Diaries, Supernatural is also on an up tick in the ratings as 2.6 million viewers also tuned in for that powerful episode.

These numbers are an increase over this time slot last year of 14% in adults 18-34, 43% in women 18-34, 7% in adults 18-49 and 36% in women 18-49.

I have to say, I’ve not been horribly disappointed with The Vampire Diaries and am totally loving the 5th season of Supernatural.

  1. Of course, there Friday night ratings have improved over the crappy sitcoms they once had there too, so it’s had to argue that Smallville isn’t still pulling fans (and that it wouldn’t still be pulling plenty more if they hadn’t moved it to a death slot). Dawn Ostroff has an agenda against the show, we’ve known that since she took over, but no matter what she’s done yet she’s yet to be able to kill it. Frankly since nothing else has worked for them on Fridays I wouldn’t be surprised if the show pulls a 10th season despite her shenanigans.

  2. Smallville’s ratings shot up last week!!! Smallville hasnt had four episodes in a row of such high quality for years, if the writers and producers can keep it up for the rest of the season, there is no reason why we wont be here next year talking about season 10! Still want to see this cast used for a Superman movie, would be a great way to bring Lex back!

  3. I tried watching Vampire Diaries…
    I tried..

    In French, if you say the English word “diary” really fast, it sounds exactly like the French word for “diarrhea”.

    Now, my better half and I had been joking calling this “The Vampire Diarrhea”… then we watched an episode.

    It looks like our humour was not far off the mark.

    This really is basically “Dawson’s Jugular” or “Beverly Hills 9021 0-negative”.

    It’s corny, it’s melodramatic, and it’s SO obviously aimed at teens and tweens.

    I’m sick of the whole goth/emo vampire fad.

  4. I watched the first episode of vampire diaries and I thought that this show pretty much captured everything that is wrong with television and the whole vampire fad. I honestly thought it would have been cancelled quick but apparently the youngsters are enjoying it so I guess I was wrong- I still think the show is terrible.
    As for Supernatural this show has just RAISED teh notch on great. Aside from the episode with Paris Hilton ( I thought it was a very weak stand alone episode) every episode thus far has been nothing short of spectacular. The dialogue, the acting, the tension, and the overall result of the show have all been increased and I think that this show is one of teh best shows on television. People hear “Supernatural” and they probably think that it is your generic sci-fi show but they are wrong. It is a very raw, original, and innovative type of series that needs to get more exposure. I am in SHOCK that Vampire Diaries gets higher rating because the quality of that show is pathetic.

  5. And as for Smallville…this season should have been last season. The show has improved drastically but unfortunately with teh disaster that was last season and with teh show moving to Fridays it has lost many of its viewers. They shoudl move it into a weekday slot, maybe Wednesday or something, even Sunday but Friday is a very poor time slot

  6. Smallville hasnt taken any CREATIVE LIBERTIES.
    But it is cool to see people actually supporting the show. Supernatural has been amazing the past few years, in fact since it started it has always been solid scary fun. I havent seen the vampire program, dont think i will bother, if i want vampire angst i will watch twilight!

  7. At least you tried Mike E.!!
