Thursday Ratings: Vampire Diaries Does Bloody Well

Last night, The Vampire Diaries managed to do what Melrose Place didn’t: make waves for CW. Approximately 4.8 million tuned in making it the most-watched series debut in the network’s history. (90210 was the previous record-holder.) Of course, the celebration probably won’t last long. The competition in the 8:00 hour will start heating up next week.
