The CW has picked up The Vampire Diaries to a full season. The series as pretty much been the only bright spot for the network, with last Thursday’s episode drawing a post-series high of 3.77 million viewers and a 1.8/5 A18-49 rating/share.
The CW also, surprisingly, ordered five more episodes of the struggling new drama Melrose Place. Although the show has done, to put it bluntly, horrible in the ratings, the network is likely hoping for one last spark when original ‘Melrose’ star Heather Locklear guest stars in a mult-episode arc beginning November 17th.
The Vampire Diaries airs Thursday’s at 8:00 p.m. Melrose Place airs Tuesday’s at 9:00 p.m.
