A lot of people were concerned for the welfare of one Jeremy Gilbert (Steven R. McQueen) last night and The Vampire Diaries ratings reflect that. 

The numbers had been declining since the  January 17 mid-season premiere — sliding from 2.9 million to 2.31 million. The good news is that TV by the Numbers reports there was a definite uptick last night: 2.89 million viewers watched Nina Dobrev’s (Elena Gilbert) emotional performance in Season 4, Episode 15, “Stand by Me.”

Via a press release, The CW announced the show "finished #3 for the 8 p.m. hour in adults 18-49 (1.3/4) and adults 18-34 (1.4/5 - tie), beating both ABC's Zero Hour and NBC's comedies."

We’re so glad to see the ratings going in the right direction!
