TV Ratings Report: TVD Surges, Zero Hour Sinks

at . Comments

Looks like folks out there really cared about the fate of Jeremy Gilbert.

The Vampire Diaries soared to a 1.3 rating among young adults last night, good enough to actually defeat Zero Hour on ABC and Community/Parks and Recreation on NBC for the 18-49-year old demographic.

That's a 30 percent increase for TVD from last Thursday's new episode.

Vampire Diaries Quotes

You want a love that consumes you. You want passion and adventure, and even a little danger... I want you to get everything you're looking for. But for right now, I want you to forget that this happened. Can't have people knowing I'm in town yet. Goodnight, Elena.

Damon

You are literally the best person I've ever known. And for me to think I could ever change you was giving me way too much credit and you way not enough… you're the good. And I need a little good in my life.

Damon [to Elena]
