From the CW publicist:

Many of our CW actors called the network and asked if they could do PSAs to reach out to their fans, asking them to help the people of Haiti. Please post these PSAs on your sites so we can continue to help those in need. Thank you.

There was also positive news for The CW last night, with the series-premiere of drama The Vampire Diaries third in the 8 p.m. hour with a 3.2/ 5. Comparably, former occupant Smallville opened its new season one year earlier (on Sept. 18, 2009) with a 2.9/ 5. And this beat the debut of Melrose Place two nights earlier (1.9/ 3 on Sept. 8 at 9 p.m. ET) by a hefty 68 percent. Naturally, the true test will come when the demos arrive, but based on the overnights The Vampire Diaries is an initial "winner" for The CW.

Leading out of The Vampire Diaries was the fifth season-premiere of Supernatural at a last-place 2.2/ 4 at 9 p.m. Comparably, retention out of the second-half of The Vampire Diaries (3.2/ 5 at 8:30 p.m.) was a marginal 71 percent. One year earlier, Supernatural opened with a heftier 2.7/ 4 in the overnights on Sept. 18, 2008.

With Vampire Diaries pairing with Supernatural next year, the CW has apparently adopted a new tagline for their Thursday programming.

Thursdays go goth.

...

Has she ever watched Supernatural? I mean, EVER?

Also at today's upfronts, the CW mentioned that the median age of its viewers is 31. Yes, that's about 10 years younger than the average for the other networks, but my question is, why are they still acting as if their audience are all teenagers?

Hello broody!Ian!

Bigger (and two more) behind the cut )

What do y'all think? It's hard to form an opinion based on a few pictures, but...I really hope this doesn't turn out to be 90210 with fangs.

At any rate, Ian looks pretty when he's brooding. :)

The Hollywood Reporter is saying the CW plans to air new drama Vampire Diaries on Thursdays at 8 p.m., betting on the established sci-fi audience that are already accustomed to tuning in then. (Please note that THR does not name its source for this information, so for now it's just a rumor.) The article seems to say Smallville would not be coming back, but I've also heard it's headed for Friday night.

What do y'all think? Personally, I think it's an excellent idea. Smallville has been fading fast, and it's certainly not doing Supernatural any favors. I'd watch Vampire Diaries anyway, and putting it on Thursdays would make it all the more convenient. CW, if this is true, I approve.

Edit: There's a promo pic of Vampire Diaries here -- you may have to go a few pages in for the VD pic.

Variety is reporting that The CW has picked up a pilot based on the Vampire Diaries, a series of young-adult novels about a young woman torn between vampire brothers.

The pilot will be produced by Warner Bros., as well as Alloy Entertainment, which previously produced Gossip Girl and Priviledged from their respective book series. Kevin Williamson, writer for "Scream", "I Know What You Did Last Summer" and "Dawson's Creek," will executive produce and write. Julie Plec, who has written for Kyle XY, will also write and executive produce.

The Vampire Diaries began in 1993, which was apparently before the Twilight series began.

So, what say you? Will this series be more than a blood-sucking Gossip Girl? More to the point, will you watch?
