‘The Vampire Diaries’ and ‘The Originals’ Move To Friday Nights

tvd-the-originals-promotional-photo (1)Bad new for The Vampire Diaries and The Originals fans, the shows are moving to the night where shows go to die.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, TVD and the Originals will make the move to Fridays when the shows returns on January 29.

Julie Plec’s shows are being moved for the Arrow/Flash spinoff, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, and the third season of The 100.

Friday has been better known as the death slot, but some shows have had success there. Bones, Supernatural, Grimm and The X-Files have all survived the Friday night death slot, but not all survive.

Since Nina Dobrev left, the ratings have slipped, despite the great storyline this season.

I have to admit that I was skeptical when Nina left. She was one of the leads and I wasn’t sure where the show would go after she left.

I’ve been pleasantly surprised this season with the great new characters and storylines. The show is taking a whole new direction and I love it.

We still get some flashbacks, but what’s great are the flash forwards. We get to see where the story is going and how horrible and different all of their lives are since Elena was put in the sleeping beauty coma. Well, maybe not all of their lives are completely horrible, but it’s certainly not what we wanted for them.

It’s an exciting time for the story of TVD, but I guess viewers have lost interest because Nina left.

The Originals just made the move from Tuesday nights, but doesn’t seem to be doing well on its Thursday night time slot.

You would have thought that #Thurstday would have been a big hit. It made complete sense to put these shows together.

The Originals have been amazing this season and anyone who hasn’t been tuning in is missing out on a great season.

Thursday night is a very competitive night on TV. You have #TGIT on ABC with Shonda Rhimes’s shows: Grey’s Anatomy, Scandal and How to Get Away with Murder. On NBC there’s Heroes Reborn, on FOX there’s Bones and CBS is airing The Big Bang Theory. There’s so much TV, how do you choose?

There’s so many shows on The CW calendar for winter, Julie’s Containment has yet to get a premiere date. It’s supposed to be scheduled to premiere midseason. The CW’s Reign also is not on the schedule for the midseason and no word on when it will return.

I guess for the second half of the season we will have to make a date with our favorite vampires every Friday night. Lets make TVD and The Originals shows that survive the Friday night death slot.
