5 Reasons Why The Originals Is Better Than The Vampire Diaries

The Vampire Diaries may have some new competition in the vampire department... from its own spin-off!

The Originals has been The CW's strongest rookie performer, with its latest episode drawing 2 million viewers and a 0.9 in the adults 18-49 demographic, nipping at the heels of its predecessor, which drew 2.6 million and a 1.2 in its latest outing. The Vampire Diaries spin-off, which was picked up for a full season on Monday, also cracked the Top 5 in our Fall TV Popularity Contest, receiving a 57 percent approval rating from TVGuide.com users. (Fox's Sleepy Hollow came in first with 85 percent.)

Ode to The Vampire Diaries' Silas: Why We Want Him to Stay

He may be destructive and diabolical, but Silas has put the "fun" in The Vampire Diaries' dysfunctional family.

When Silas (Paul Wesley) was first introduced in his true form, a doppelganger of Stefan (also Wesley), we were both nervous about the bleak future for the Salvatore brother, but excited to see Wesley take on a darker role. After seeing what he was capable of when he played "The Ripper," there was no doubt that Wesley relished playing a evil counterpart to his usually sensitive, swoon-worthy Stefan. Six episodes in and with Silas on the brink of death, here are four reasons we're hoping he sticks around.

Turns out Tessa (Janina Gavankar), the Mystic Falls newcomer determined to take down Silas (Paul Wesley) was also the witch who created the immortality spell, the other side and the cure.

The Thursday Playlist: Reign, White Collar Join a Crowded Night

History be damned. And that's no joke, though the show sometimes feels like one. The CW's Reign (Thursday, 9/8c) is all about herstory, an opulent and giddy bodice-ripper very loosely inspired by the teenage years of the ultimately ill-fated Mary, Queen of Scots (a pouty Adelaide Kane). It's like Masterpiece Junior as seen on MTV after a jolt of Red Bull, or more to the point, Gossip Girl goes to court. And while it will win no prizes for scholarly accuracy (to put it mildly), Reign is such a fanciful folly of royal romance and literally poisonous court gossip that it's hard not to hail a CW show that breaks so lavishly from the network's usual formula of angst-ridden ghouls and cloying rom-com.
