The CW Midseason: The Vampire Diaries and The Originals to Fridays, The 100 Returns

at .  Updated at . Comments

The only constant is change, and you're about to get a lot of it at The CW.

Supernatural Thursdays will be a thing of the past come January, when The Vampire Diaries and The Originals make the move to Friday nights to make way for DC's Legends of Tomorrow and The 100 on Thursdays.

It's Almost Time - The 100 Season 2 Episode 15

Starting January 21,The CW kicks off a new night of action and adventure with the highly-anticipated series premiere of DC’S Legends of Tomorrow followed by the return of the critically-acclaimed post-apocalyptic drama The 100.

Beginning on January 29, the Salvatore brothers and the First Family of vampires will kick off the weekend with high-stakes drama with The Vampire Diaries and The Originals, two of the most heavily time-shifted series on television. They both almost triple their viewing audiences when tallied across DVR, VOD and digital platforms.

And yet this feels like a death blow to each show, both of whom have suffered terribly in the ratings.

It's very hard to see either The Vampire Diaries or The Originals being renewed for another season having getting demoted from the network's most important night to its least.

The full schedule can be seen below.


8:00-9:00pm    DC’S LEGENDS OF TOMORROW (Series Premiere)
9:00-10:00pm  THE 100 (Season Premiere) 


8:00-9:00pm    THE VAMPIRE DIARIES (New Night)
9:00-10:00pm  THE ORIGINALS (New Night)

Vampire Diaries Quotes

Damon: You know what they are? Children. Like lighting a candle's going to make everything OK, or even saying a prayer. Or pretending Elena's not going to end up just like the rest of us murdering vampires. Stupid, delusional, exasperating little children. And I know what you're going to say: 'It makes them feel better, Damon.' So what? For how long? A minute, a day? What difference does it make? Because in the end, when you lose somebody, every candle, every prayer is not going to make up for the fact that the only thing you have left is hole in your life where that somebody that you cared about used to be. And a rock with a birthday carved into it that I'm pretty sure is wrong. So thanks, friend. Thanks for leaving me here to babysit. Because I should be long gone by now. I didn't get the girl, remember? I'm just stuck here fighting my brother and taking care of the kids. You owe me big.
Alaric: I miss you too, buddy.

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.
