More impressively, The Originals and Supernatural — which had its biggest audience since its season premiere — gave the CW its most-watched Tuesday in more than five years! Whoa. Who knew the Mikaelsons and the Winchesters would make such a compelling combo?
The Originals matched its highest 18-49 demo rating with a 1.1, which pretty much proves it can hold its own against mother show, The Vampire Diaries. At this point a Season 2 renewal is a sure thing, but when will the CW make the big announcement? Given The Originals’ latest ratings success, we think the network will announce a Season 2 before 2013 is over.
Catch the next episode of The Originals on Tuesday, January 14 at 8 p.m. ET on the CW.
