Viewing Single Post From: CW Fall 2013 Schedule

Wouldn't it have made more sense to put The Originals and Vampire Diaries on the same night? Or is it too many bloodsuckers on one night.
I think the network wants The Originals to be a success and being in a time slot after The Vampire Diaries has so far proven to be anything but a guarantee of success. There's an article on Zap2It that explains why: TVD tends to end an episode with such a shocking cliffhanger that people immediately run to their computers to comment on message boards and Twitter and don't stick around to watch what's next. The CW tried to make a post-TVD show a success 3 times so far. Nikita did get renewed (and renewed and renewed), but it could retain only a half of TVD's audience. The Secret Circle's ratings were on par with TVD for the first few episodes, but then dwindled. And Beauty and the Beast never stood a chance against that beast. It'll be interesting to see how Reign will do in that slot.
