The news has been spreading like wildfire since TV By The Numbers was the first (early on the 26th of April) to report that The Vampire Diaries and Supernatural have been renewed by The CW via the press release they received from The CW / CBS.  I saw the news then, but I’ve been dealing with a death in the family and have been a bit preoccupied.

The Vampire Diaries is getting its third season of the the Salvador brothers (Paul Wesley, Ian Somerhalder) and Elena (Nina Dobrev)! It is the most watched show of the network’s, averaging 4 million viewers.

Supernatural, happily, is getting its seventh season lined up where the Winchester brothers (Jared Padalecki & Jensen Ackles) can keep the good fight going. Interestingly enough, with The CW moving this show to Friday nights, has made the night a more competitive ratings stage for the net and given new life to our favorite ‘Hunters.’ How could it not be? The Syfy channel is yanking anything else we might want to watch from Friday nights, so this is a shoe-in for Friday nights. Who’d a thunk that Friday nights would be a good night for a show!? Times are definitely changing.  Awesome!

Fantasy TV Series Thought

Now, if The CW could be ever so bold and do an awesome cross-over of these two shows, tell me… wouldn’t that just be nuts!? To see the Winchester brothers chomping at the bit and having to work with the Salvadors on a case? LOL. (There goes that imagination of mine again!) I don’t think the female fans could handle a series with all those guys in it!

Other shows renewed were America’s Next Top Model, Gossip Girl, 90201. You might question these renewals because their numbers on a TV ratings chart aren’t that great, but they have a true core of fans that return and The CW isn’t looking for the tens of millions of viewers. Just a consistent bank of them.

Cinema Static Thoughts

At least The CW is taking care of the core fans, unlike those of you that are feeling abandoned by another network whose core genre used to be science fiction, but is of late, using the bailing buckets to toss out under-performing shows after they’ve moved them around so much that viewers can’t keep up with them and they croak in the ratings!

Thought The CW has been faithful to their core-viewers, I dread that in this business, sooner or later, they may have to do the same thing. I hope not, but it is a business gang and at least we have more than two seasons of our favorite CW programs.

The viewers, I’m sure, say kudos and thanks to the CW for that.
