All that double entendre marketing paid off!

Last night marked the midseason return of The CW’s highest rated shows, The Vampire Diaries and Nikita. The shows faced strong opposition now that American Idol has returned, but surprisingly, they both performed well under the pressure!

3.5 million people caught VD (teehee), while 2.7 million tuned in to watch Maggie Q kick butt! As it stands, last night was the network’s most-watched Thursday since early November.

Kudos, CW. Let’s hope you guys can keep this up when Idol gets into full gear. Results shows maybe a bit tricker to stand up against in the raitings.

    What do you mean suck on it idol? Idol got 24 mill in the ratings while V.D got 3.5 mill. Pathetic. Nobody cares about this show or any show on the C.W.

    Did you fail to notice that the CW screwed over a HUGE portion of their viewers? Tonight was supposed to be the mid-season premiere of Smallville and Supernatural….and with only 28 hours to go until said premieres, the CW pushed back the date to Feb 4 for both shows!! Why?? To give Vampire Diaries a shot against Americal Idol!! And what are they showing tonight?? Last night's Vampire Diaries…..Screw CW!!!

  11. 11

    Wat?!?! Seriously only 3.5?!?! Smallville had 4.5 million in their 8th Season!!!! Seriously, the CW screwed over all the Supernatural and Smallville fans. We have been waiting for their return for months! They owe the fans an apology

    Re: shattershockred

    Exactly. Supernatural just won both a TV Guide cover AND eonline's Best Show of 2010 based solely on fan voting.

    And the show actually DESERVES the recognition. Those guys bring it. Every week. Pushing it so some teeny bopping Twihards can get their rocks off two nights in a row, with 24 hours notice (absurdly inadequate)…fucking ridiculous. Disrespectful waste of my time.

    haterz stop commenting!!

    THE VAMPIRE DIARIES FTW! I mean dont get me wrong I love American Idol but my gosh I love vampires! haha



  16. 16

    OMG! Fucking hate this dumb-ass show! It'll be a great day when tweens grow up and start getting bored of all this lame vampire shows and movies and this show is cancelled! But really what can you expect from the CW? Besides OTH, Supernatural and Smallville the network would be complete shit! And whats sad is those shows have been on for YEARS! And they don't get enough credit or the promotion that they deserve. When those 3 shows are done I'm 1000% done watching the CW. SUCK IT!



  17. 17

    who does nina think she is?! loser



  18. 18

    Of course TVD held up, it's an awesome show!



  19. 19

    I love you Steven Tyler.. but you're a sell out.. would rather watch CW…….. but I won't…

    I am so tired of these reality shows. I do love Vampire Diaries. It is one of my favorite shows on TV… it is great. People that are talking bad about it… have either never seen it or never gave the show a fighting chance. American Idol always doe good in the beginning. I mean come on!!!! Right now the judges are making fun of people and praising people. The viewers are eating that up. The viewership will drop as the season goes on.



  21. 21

    YAH CW SCREWED OVER SMALLVILLE FANS…. I WAS OUTRAGED TO FIND OUT THEY REPLAYED THAT EPISODE OF VD WHEN THEY HAD BEEN MARKETING THE MID SEASON RELEASE OF SMALLVILLE WAS SUPPOSED TO BE ON AND SUPERNATURAL…. I HATE THE CW…. AFTER SMALLVILLE IS OVER THIS SEASON I AM NEVER WATCHING ANOTHER PATHETIC SHOW ON THIS TERRIBLE NETWORK.



  22. 22

    I still think CW was better when it was WB33



  23. 23

    why wouldnt shows still get ratings because of american idol? think of all the canadians who dont give a crap about that show and want their regular shows!!



  24. 24

    Re: Rachie Rach – I fully agree with you! TVD is an amazing show I watch it every thursday. As for American Idol I only watch it in the beginning too it's the auditions that are worth the watch the rest is boring.



  25. 25

    UGH It was probably most watched bc CW lied and said Smallville new epi would be back but it wasn't!!
