Originals' Michael Trevino on Getting Revenge: Tyler absolutely has it in him to kill Hayley
After Tyler (Michael Trevino) set foot in the Big Easy, he came face-to-face with his greatest enemy, Klaus (Joseph Morgan). It wasn't long before the Original hybrid threw out every emotional dagger, including his break-up with Caroline (Candice Accola) and the death of his mother, leading Tyler to fight back. See how it was all done here.

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.)

Tyler Lockwood has said his goodbyes to Mystic Falls and is heading on down to the Big Easy.
From sire bond to mortal enemies, the relationship between The Vampire Diaries' Tyler (Michael Trevino) and Klaus (Joseph Morgan) took a sharp turn when Klaus killed Tyler's mom last season. Tyler attempted revenge, but when his plans went awry he was forced to leave town. But Klaus had one weak spot — Caroline (Candice Accola) — and allowed Tyler to come back so that his love could be happy. With the damage already done and his path for vengeance ignited, Tyler ultimately chose seeking redemption over his girlfriend, college and a chance at a (somewhat) normal life. On Tuesday's episode of The Originals (8/7, The CW)— the first of the two shows crossing over —Tyler will face the Original baddie once again.

How does a vampire get a daylight ring on The Originals? By kicking some ass.
Fall TV Popularity Contest: And the winner is...
On Tuesday's episode of the CW series, tensions between Marcel (Charles Michael Davis) and Klaus (Joseph Morgan) continue to rise, leaving some members of Marcel's inner circle a little uneasy. In order to keep his allies close, Marcel offers up a coveted daylight ring — but his vampires are going to have to fight for it. Watch our exclusive clip below:
"Is it evil to take what one wants?"
This is the question Klaus (Joseph Morgan) poses to Cami (Leah Pipes) in this exclusive Originals sneak peek.
TV's most awesome cry faces
The vamp seems determined to win Cami's loyalty in his fight against Marcel (Charles Michael Davis), but Klaus sees the futility of his usual ways — threats and bodily harm. Instead, he opens up that big ol' heart of his a bit and explains that he simply wants to protect Hayley (Phoebe Tonkin) and save Davina (Danielle Campbell).

How do you manipulate and defeat someone who knows you better than almost anyone else? That's the dilemma Klaus is facing on The Originals.
Although it's evident that there's a long history between Klaus (Joseph Morgan) and his former protégé Marcel (Charles Michael Davis), on last week's episode, viewers saw just how deep the bond goes. As Klaus was settling New Orleans in 1820, he watched a young slave being tortured. Turns out the boy, who didn't even have a name, was the product of the Governor's affair. Klaus felt a connection and took the boy, who he named Marcellus, under his wing.
If Joseph Morgan's Originals character seems a little darker lately, it's because he's been listening to too much Game of Thrones.
"I love Game of Thrones and in fact to bridge the gap between the third and fourth seasons I started listening to the audio books on my drive to work," Morgan tells us in his video Watchlist below. "So all of my performances will now be enhanced by the Game of Thrones audio book."

For a hated vampire, The Originals' Marcel sure has a lot of admirers.
On last week's series premiere, viewers were re-introduced to New Orleans' ruling vamp Marcel (Charles Michael Davis), who's gone to many lengths to make sure the city remains under his control. But with his former mentor's arrival, and the help of a few witches he's pissed off along the way, Marcel is faced with getting the Big Easy swept from under him. Good thing Klaus' sister Rebekah (Claire Holt) is coming back to town on Tuesday (8/7c, The CW) since the two have quite the history...

This fall you can really feel the Modern Family influence in the development of most networks' new comedy slates, and it's especially noticeable on NBC's Thursday lineup. With the exception of the long-running Parks and Recreation, which until the double expectancy whammy of Ann Perkins and Ron's Diane had been curiously child-free for a show supposedly set in America's heartland, NBC's new sitcoms are very much in the family way, for better or worse.
One actually bills itself as Welcome to the Family (8:31/7:31c), and if familiarity is a prerequisite for your viewing patterns, you'll feel right at home here. This innocuous domestic farce pivots on a culture clash between...
