Scoop: 'Vampire Diaries,' 'Melrose Place' picked up!

Posted on

melrose-vampire-diaries_lThis just in: Sources confirm that The CW has picked up The Vampire Diaries for a full season and Melrose Place for, well, a sorta-full season.

The back-nine order for Diaries was a no-brainer. The Kevin Williamson-produced thriller scored The CW’s best premiere ratings ever and has been a consistent demo dynamo on Thursday night.

Melrose, meanwhile, has been a ratings misfit, which explains The CW’s decision to pick up only five additional episodes instead of the typical nine. Of course, that number could go up if Heather Locklear is able to work her ratings magic next month.
