TV Ratings Report: Big Night for The CW

at . Comments

With most networks bumping a majority of their primetime shows for the Vice Presidential Debate last night, The CW scored big with the Season 4 premiere of The Vampire Diaries and the series debut of Beauty and the Beast.

Both broke the three million viewer barrier for the network, as rundown in our full ratings report below...

Michael Trevino as Klaus

8 p.m.
The Vampire Diaries: 3.5 million viewers
Last Resort: 6.9 million
The X Factor: 8.3 million
The Big Bang Theory: 13.7 million/Two and a Half Men: 11.7 million
30 Rock: 3.8 million/Up All Night: 3.5 million

At 9 p.m., Beauty and the Beast drew 3.2 million viewers, a very impressive figure for a very poorly review series.

All other networks wired Joe Biden vs. Paul Ryan.
