TVD continues to be a mainstay of the annual, vote-based awards competition. This year, both Paul Wesley (Stefan Salvatore) and Ian Somerhalder (Damon Salvatore) scored “Favorite Sci-Fi/Fantasy TV Actor” nominations, while co-star Nina Dobrev (Elena Gilbert) grabbed a “Favorite Sci-Fi/Fantasy TV Actress” nomination of her own.
The CW drama, currently in its sixth season, nabbed a “Favorite Network Sci-Fi/Fantasy TV Show” nomination, while Nina and Ian continued their reign as one of TV’s most-talked-about two-somes with a “Favorite TV Duo” nomination. Huzzah!
It’s good to know that TVD is still a fan favorite, even well past its 100th episode. Though it still brings in respectable numbers for The CW (especially in the much-coveted 18-49 rating), last episode tied a series ratings low with a 0.7 in the demo, down 13 percent from the previous week’s 0.8.
But TV-watching isn’t simply measure by Nielsen ratings. Earlier this week, Variety published its analysis of “Digital Audience Ratings” from ListenFirst Media. TVD was seventh on the list of broadcast TV shows being talked about on Facebook, Google+, Instagram, Tumblr, Wikipedia and YouTube (Twitter is notably not tabulated in this analysis). Not too shabby for a show on a less-watched network with five seasons already under its belt.
