Of the five networks, The CW has the fewest hours of primetime to fill but they're not finding it any easier to find hits. Most of their returning shows are way down year-to-year and some of their new series are struggling. Which will be cancelled or renewed? Stay tuned!
New CW shows (so far): The Originals, Reign, and The Tomorrow People.
How does The CW decide what to cancel or renew? They look at a lot of different factors but the ratings play an important role. The higher the ratings, the better chance a show has of surviving. Here's how the network's shows are doing so far: »
(Pictured left to right: Nina Dobrev as Katherine, Nina Dobrev as Amara, Nina Dobrev as Elena) On "The Vampire Diaries," Nina Dobrev has played so many characters -- and versions of characters -- it's a bloody travesty she's never been recognized by the TV academy. For those keeping track at home, over the first five seasons Dobrev effortlessly portrayed human Elena, human Katherine, vampire Elena, vampire Katherine, Elena pretending to be Katherine, Katherine pretending to be Elena, Katherine's soul inside of Elena's body and original immortal Amara. Whew -- did we forget anybody? -Break- The Emmys usually go crazy over actors and actresses who undergo multiple personalities or play various characters (like Toni Collette for "United States of Tara") so why is Dobrev the unfortunate exception to the rule?

Oh, and there's scoop on the new seasons of Orange Is the New Black, Sleepy Hollow and more... Naomi: You never give us any spoilers »
The CW experienced a modest success last fall when it spun off flagship drama The Vampire Diaries into New Orleans-set The Originals, airing the pilot episode of that show as a mid-season episode of Vampire Diaries. The spinoff has since been renewed for a second season and is rapidly building a small fanbase of its own. So, it makes sense that the network wants to try its luck again with another spinoff – this time of its longest-running show, cult fave Supernatural.
Supernatural: Bloodlines, formerly known as Supernatural: Tribes, will air a backdoor pilot next Tuesday as part of Supernatural‘s currently airing tenth season. After some casting announcements over the past few months, we’ve finally got our first look at the show, which you can check out below.
Though it’s certainly not an in-depth trailer, this rollicking teaser definitely captures the spirit of what The CW is going for with Bloodlines. »

I’m honestly not totally sure how to write about In Your Eyes, the new movie that Joss Whedon surprise-released online like he’s Beyonce. It’s the second feature from director Brin Hill, and he did a really great job with this odd little supernatural romance that was written by Whedon himself. The movie opens with a scene that focuses on two kids. One, a girl named Rebecca, is having a snow day, the other, a boy named Dylan, is at school somewhere warm. The scene cuts between the two — she’s timid and trying to sled, he’s smart but hangs with a bad crowd — until she loses control of her sled and crashes into a tree, which knocks him unconscious, thousands of miles away. Then it picks up maybe twenty years later when she is a doctor’s wife and he is an ex-con on parole, and »

The Vampire Diaries is back, and Elena's love life is more complicated than ever. But that's not really a surprise, is it?
This review contains spoilers.
5.18 Resident Evil
There’s another dead only guy with a mysterious evil plan in Mystic Falls? It must be Tuesday (or Thursday, whatever). Yep, The Vampire Diaries is back from its hiatus and ready to get going on yet another fight for survival between our gang and whichever unkillable beastie has decided to take up residence in their town. This, of course, is balanced with a lot of chatter about love, friendship and letting go with some false finality for fans in both sides of the shipper war, as well as a week where both Matt and Tyler get something useful to do – novel.
Starting, as the episode does, with the Stefan and Elena drama, this is one »
Paul Wesley made his directorial debut on tonight’s episode of The Vampire Diaries and fans won’t be disappointed with the results. Besides a few choice camera angles, it was business as usual on the teen drama. That is, unless you’re a diehard Elena (Nina Dobrev) and Damon (Ian Somerhalder) fan. The writers once again pulled the plug on this relationship and put the hearts of Delena supporters through an emotional blender, making sure that drama was anything but in short supply.
Resident Evil not only dispelled the doppelganger folklore regarding the universe’s brand of fate, which seems like it should be an over-sized check mark in the win column, but it managed to put the breaks on any immediate future for the recently estranged couple at the same time. It’s almost become a game at this point. How long with Elena and Damon last this »

Directed by Paul Wesley
Airs Thursdays at 8pm (Et) on The CW
The deaths of both Silas and Ayana earlier in the season put Elena in the unique position of being the world’s last doppelganger of her kind. As the Travelers indicated, however, Stefan was not the last doppelganger from the Silas line, a situation that had changed by the time Caroline and Enzo returned from Atlanta. This week’s episode explores one of the side effects of the duo’s status, in an entertaining outing that helps establish the extent of the new threat against the Mystic Falls group.
The emergence of the Travelers as a primary threat is a strong aspect of this week’s episode. While the Travelers have been around since the beginning of the season, »

Thursday evening’s TV ratings are in. Here’s a brief look at the highlights: The season five finale of NBC’s Community saw a slight ratings uptick, rising 11% from last week’s series low 0.9 rating to a 1.0 rating in the 18-49 demo and scoring 2.9 million viewers. It barely edged out Parks and Recreation for the night, but that’s still far from a “solid” ratings performance. And yet, a sixth season renewal is actually looking pretty likely since it would put the series in a lucrative position for syndication. If NBC doesn’t renew Community and “Basic Sandwich” ends up being the series finale, we’ll all just have to assume a giant asteroid destroyed all life on earth. It is canon, after all. Over on ABC, Scandal closed out its buzzworthy third season with a 3.4 rating and 10.45 million viewers, rising 13% from last week and marking the show’s highest rated season finale yet. »

ABC’s “Scandal” closed its season very strong on Thursday, delivering the show’s best-ever finale numbers and its second highest rating overall. Not so hot in its exit on the night was CBS rookie comedy “The Crazy Ones,” which didn’t help its renewal with a modest one-hour season finale.
The strong finish to the night for ABC extended to latenight, where “Jimmy Kimmel Live” posted its highest overnight rating (3.4/8 share) in the 15 months it has been on at 11:35 p.m. — winning the night with a special “Scandal”-themed hour. NBC’s “Tonight Show” and CBS’ “Late Show” both did a 2.1/5 with repeat episodes, according to Nielsen.
Looking at primetime, ABC opened Thursday with an encore “Grey’s Anatomy” (0.8 rating/3 share in adults 18-49, 3.4 million viewers overall), followed by an original episode (2.5/8 in 18-49, 8.1 million viewers overall), which was in line with last week and again led its hour in key demos. »

An explosive “Scandal” season finale led ABC to an easy win in the key demographic Thursday, as CBS won in total viewers. Thursday also had several notable series lows, including CBS's season finale of Robin Williams’ “The Crazy Ones,” NBC's “Hollywood Game Night” and a “Parks and Recreation” episode in which Leslie Knope received some huge news. The CW's “The Vampire Diaries” hit a low and “Reign” tied one. Also read: 5 Crazy Things That Happened on the ‘Scandal’ Season 3 Finale ABC scored a 2.2 rating/7 share in the key 18-49 demographic, and was second-place in total viewers with 7.3 million. »

Fast National ratings for Thursday, April 17, 2014. The season finale of "Scandal" drew big numbers on Thursday and helped ABC win Thursday among young viewers, but Thursday's most watched show was still a "Big Bang Theory" repeat, which let CBS eke out a slim win overall. Stay tuned for Final Live+Same Day ratings to see if ABC was able to push into the lead overall. Among other notables, Fox's "Hell's Kitchen" and "American Idol" both posted gains, but "Surviving Jack" was down week-to-week. Season finales of "Community" and "Parenthood" were both up for NBC, but "Parks and Recreation" was down. And The CW's spring lag continued with both "The Vampire Diaries" and "Reign" on the low side, especially among total viewers. The "Parks and Recreation," "Vampire Diaries" and "Crazy Ones" numbers were all series lows, if you're keeping score at home. On to the numbers... Among adults 18-49, ABC averaged a 2.2 rating for Thursday night, »

Another fast-paced episode of The Originals ramps up the tensions between the various factions...
This review contains spoilers.
1.18 The Big Uneasy
It only took 42-minutes for Elijah quest for peace and inter-species party times to go belly up but, boy, was The Big Uneasy fun to watch. Exhausting, but fun. I’ve said it before but, if there’s one thing The Originals seems to have inherited from its parent show, it’s the fast, breakneck storytelling pace; able to explore a potentially season-long arc in just one brilliant episode and then just moving onto the next like it’s no big deal. That might have meant that we’ve seen allegiances change in this first season more times than we can reasonably keep track of, but, with The Vampire Diaries currently parked on its laurels and refusing to move, it’s a good thing. »
"Stefan gets philosophical with Elena about her relationship with 'Damon' (Ian Somerhalder). Then after their attempt to protect the 'dopplegangers' goes badly, 'Liv' (Penelope Mitchell) and 'Luke' (Chris Brochu) come up with a dangerous new strategy.
"'Bonnie' (Kat Graham) finally admits to 'Caroline' (Candice Accola) that she’s been keeping the truth about the 'Other Side' from everyone. Finally, while Bonnie searches desperately for a way to stop Markos, »

It’s been a long couple of weeks, and the CW’s The Vampire Diaries is finally back. First of all, this whole love triangle thing between Elena (Nina Dobrev), Stefan (Paul Wesley) and Damon (Ian Somerhalder) is getting a little old. Now that Elena has officially ended things with Damon she’s been thinking a little too much about Stefan. Now we all know that the relationship between Elena and Damon was far from perfect but when it finally happened many of us were just so happy that she finally picked one of the brothers. Well, now things are flipped upside down … Continue reading →

Previously, on The Vampire Diaries
Elena writes in her journal and tears a page out. The wind takes it away from her and Stefan intercepts it. He hands it back and they introduce themselves, only to almost get run over by a car.
Elena awakens in her bed. It was just a dream. Title card!
Damon bought a pool table! He and Enzo shoot a round while Enzo recaps the recent history of Damon’s awful love life. Damon fires back with a reference to the missing Maggie and Enzo exposits that the shitty Travelers set themselves on fire without revealing her location as promised.
Elena and Caroline arrive at the Grill for a planned lunch with Sheriff Liz, who’s running late. Caroline grabs a table and Elena fugue states her way over while envisioning the end of her “first date” with Stefan, interrupted when her dad flips on the porch light. »
