Looks like everyone listened to Ian Somerhalder’s (Damon Salvatore) plea and watched The Vampire Diaries Season 4 premiere live last night. The ratings are in, and TVD debuted with some strong ratings. 

According to TV by the Numbers, 3.483 million people tuned in to find out Elena’s (Nina Dobrev) fate. That was nearly enough to beat NBC’s 30 Rock. As much as we love Liz Lemon, that’s some pretty impressive news! High-fiving a million angels.
