The CW Midseason: The Vampire Diaries and The Originals to Fridays, The 100 Returns

at .  Updated at .

The only constant is change, and you're about to get a lot of it at The CW.

Supernatural Thursdays will be a thing of the past come January, when The Vampire Diaries and The Originals make the move to Friday nights to make way for DC's Legends of Tomorrow and The 100 on Thursdays.

It's Almost Time - The 100 Season 2 Episode 15

Starting January 21,The CW kicks off a new night of action and adventure with the highly-anticipated series premiere of DC’S Legends of Tomorrow followed by the return of the critically-acclaimed post-apocalyptic drama The 100.

Beginning on January 29, the Salvatore brothers and the First Family of vampires will kick off the weekend with high-stakes drama with The Vampire Diaries and The Originals, two of the most heavily time-shifted series on television. They both almost triple their viewing audiences when tallied across DVR, VOD and digital platforms.

And yet this feels like a death blow to each show, both of whom have suffered terribly in the ratings.

It's very hard to see either The Vampire Diaries or The Originals being renewed for another season having getting demoted from the network's most important night to its least.

The full schedule can be seen below.


8:00-9:00pm    DC’S LEGENDS OF TOMORROW (Series Premiere)
9:00-10:00pm  THE 100 (Season Premiere) 


8:00-9:00pm    THE VAMPIRE DIARIES (New Night)
9:00-10:00pm  THE ORIGINALS (New Night)

Vampire Diaries Quotes

Dear Diary, a chipmunk asked me my name today. I told him it was Joe. That lie, will haunt me, forever.


Dear Elena, yes you heard that correctly. Hell has frozen over. I'm writing it all down. Granted, I'm half a bottle in thanks to my 1950 Chateau Cheval Blanc, a bottle I waited 65 years to open. I used to spend nights sitting in my wine cellar convincing myself I could hear it age, tannins growing, fermenting, but appreciating its beauty didn't make time go by any faster. The bottle just laid there on its shelf, torturing me while I waited for Katherine and time stood still. Eventually I convinced myself that no sip of that wine could ever taste as good as I dreamt it would. And that is the story of why I drink bourbon. I don't know who I am without you, but I know that as long as I'm with you, time will stand still. So who is Damon Salvatore without Elena Gilbert? A selfish friend, a jealous brother, a horrible son? Or maybe with a little luck, I'll do right by you. Because you may be a thousand miles away or a hundred years away, but you're still here with me and my heart is right there in that coffin with you. Until you come back to me.
