A spin-off of The Vampire Diaries, The Originals drew 2.1 million and a 0.9 for its special Thursday premiere, and held on to most of its audience when it debuted in its regular Tuesday timeslot (1.9 million, 0.9).
The order comes one day after The Tomorrow People's decent premiere (2.3 million, 0.8) and a full week before the period drama Reign even debuts.
