The Originals: Season One Ratings

The Originals TV show ratingsThe CW has had great ratings success with shows like The Vampire Diaries and Supernatural. Will The Originals be a hit as well or will it be cancelled after one season, like The Secret Circle? Time will tell.

The Originals revolves around the world’s original vampires and their battle against another vampire who’s controlling New Orleans. The cast includes Joseph Morgan, Daniel Gillies, Claire Holt, Phoebe Tonkin, Charles Michael Davis, Daniella Pineda, Leah Pipes, and Danielle Campbell.

The ratings are typically the best indication of a show’s likelihood of staying on the air. The higher the ratings (particularly the 18-49 demo), the better the chances for survival. This chart will be updated as new ratings data becomes available — usually the next day, around 11:30am EST/8:30am PST. Refresh to see the latest.

    I am just too upset that the people aren’t taking the time and not watching the orginals and i feel like that they don’t like it

    the thing is that TVD and the the orginals are spin off shows and if one of them gets canceled that means TVD Goes too

  3. erin says

    The orginals demos are getting 0.6. And also TVD is getting a 0.9 in demos and that’s not good for both shows well juile plec wanted to do a spin off show and that spin off show is a cross over to TVD and I think the viewers have to go back and re watch season 1 all over again and the cw network can fix the demos raitings and also to fix the percentage to the million of viewers side and the cw network can make things right again

    I just don’t like mickael and esther because they did horrible things to elijah rebecca klaus she and mickael used a spell to created the orginals vampires and turn their children into vampires with their blood and tatia blood

    Well tatia blood was used in a wine cup laced with mickael blood to created the orginals into vampires and also mickale had own blood to give it to his children tatia blood was also aprt of the spell that esther used to bind klaus’s werewolf side which resulted in klaus’s werewolf gene being dormant

    The Originals is an excellent show, I love it. The casts, the plot and everything else is great.
    Why should be cancelled? this is a bad idea and show is not getting what it deserves.
    I hope it stays.
    Thank you

      Vampire daires and the orginals are the best shows when Klaus Elijah and rebecca were on vampire daires I was like we don’t know anything about klaus elijah Finn kol rebecca and the orginals families I am asking why is michale back I don’t like him because he done a lot of bad things to klaus but wait a minute the horrible things that michale and esther did to their own family and also inculding turn klaus elijah rebecca kol finn into vampires and esther using a linking and using a spell to create the orginal vampires Esther used her blood and tatia blood as part of the wine laced with blood mikael had given his children tatia is realted to the orginals and my guess is that esther has an older sister that she doesn’t want to talk about and that sister is tatia and she hated klaus and elijah for falling in love with her there could have been a fall out between esther and tatia for unknown reasons
