TV Ratings Report: TVD Rises, Wonderland Wobbles

by at . Comments

The Vampire Diaries took a bite out of the ratings game last night, posting a 30 percent gain among young adult and garnering 2.8 million viewers overall.

The premiere of Reign was less successful, however, as that new drama only earned a .8 among 18-49-year olds, which is a 33 percent decrease from Beauty and the Beast's opener in the same time slot last year.

Elsewhere, no one wants to join Alice in ABC's version of Wonderland...

Ugh! I can't believe The Big Bang theory did THAT well. I didn't even think anyone really watched that show. Especially over TVD?! wow. That show IS Thursday.


but yet OUATIW has more than TVD?! the logic!!


I feel like Reign has a lot of potential to be a great show that could be on for years. It's a really good show.
