Ecstatic about 9O21O and SPN, but I really want NIKITA too CW.

Kat May 5, 2012 at 9:19 am

Yay, I really hope Nikita makes it, too. TVD, Supernatural, and Nikita are the three best programs on the station. I hope Ringer makes it, too, but acknowledge its quality level isn’t as high as the others I like.

I’m very happy about the renewals of The Vampire Diaries, Supernatural, and 90210.

I’m not a huge fan of The Vampire Diaries, but, to me, I think Damon (Ian Somerhalder) is sooo hot!!! That’s why I’m happy for the show’s 3rd season renewal. Thank you, CW!

My dad is watching Supernatural on Fridays and he’ll be happy to hear about the 8th season renewal.

I bet 90210 will last as long as the original because the show’s been renewed for a 5th season!

Thank you so much for renewing those 3 shows, CW!
