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.

    Renew!!!! I really hope that this show doesn’t get canceled like the secret circle. That was my favorite tv show of all time. Same with the vampire diaries, and now this is. ( I am still a fan of the vampire diaries though) Please please please keep playing this show!! :)

    The Originals keeps getting better and better! Let Klaus grow out his curls, and Elijah get his eyes off Hayley, things would improve. Let the baby be born already and make them moonlight rings for the wolves so they have enough power to fight the vamps. Marcel can have Cami if he wants her, Klaus take care of Hayley, Elijah can have anyone else he choses, and continue to help Klaus. Rebekah come home soon!

    I think they should have cast Danielle Campbell who plays Devina in the originals, as
    Emery in star-crossed and maybe star-crossed would have made it.

    I hate this show. The writers ruined any chances of it being a success. I don’t see it making it past Season 3 and I will be so happy whenever it’s finally cancelled.

    The Originals is my fav show and always I love TVD and the Mikaelson family. The Episode on Tuesday Night was really crazy because The witches wanted to throw celebration at the French Quarter and Marcel was just standing there doing nothing about it . I was so pump to watch the Original family but what I got was a show centered around Hayley’s baby mama drama .Klaus lost his character because he’s turn into Michal and Elijah in his bad but noble form reduced to making puppy dog eyes at Hayley.I would loved watch a story about the whole original family and the evolution and history of their relationships. Kol Finn and Katharina should be in The Originals.

    From What I Have heard Marcel Killed Haley Family and a witness who saw him killing them and even killed the French Quarter family and the witches family too I was really disappointed and upset on what the witches and marcel did in that episode

    I TOTALLY UNDERSAND IN YOUR POINT OF VIEW IS BUT I AM STILL WATCHING IT BECAUSE I LOVE THEIR SHOW
    WILL YOU BE WATCHING THE NEXT EPISODE ON TUESDAY THE 21st
