The Vampire Diaries: Season Four Ratings

The Vampire Diaries has been The CW’s biggest ratings winner for quite awhile but for how long will that trend continue? Will one of the network’s new shows surpass it? We’ll have to wait and see.

Revolving around a pair of vampire bothers and the young woman they both love, the fourth season of The Vampire Diaries typically airs on Thursday nights on The CW network. The cast includes Nina Dobrev, Ian Somerhalder, Paul Wesley, Steven R. McQueen, Kat Graham, Candice Accola, Zach Roerig, Michael Trevino, Matt Davis, and Joseph Morgan.

Here are the TV show’s ratings for the 2012-13 season, the best way to tell if The Vampire Diaries is going to be cancelled or renewed for a fifth season.

Keep Thous Ratings up for Vampire Dairies Season 5

I think the CW Network should team up with ABC Family Channel So the cw network could bring half of the ABC Family Channel on the cw network

The CW network programming shows were getting low ratings because the audience were watching less shows on the cw network and the cw network needs more audience to keep up with the ratings

The CW Network had to put One Tree Hill and Gossip Girls and the other shows on the bubble because they weren’t sure what to do with the veterans shows so they had no choice to wrap up One Tree Hill And GG series

When GG finished up their Season 5 finale it got low ratings
When 90210 finished up their Season 4 finale it got low ratings

The Others Shows
Hart Of Dixie
Emily Owens
Supernatural
Arrow
Vampire Dairies
Beauty And The Beast
Were supposed to be Toss Up Renewal for 2013
Or Were supposed to be Renew for 2013
