For the 2011-2012 season, you may have noticed that EW.com’s recaps have featured a new starred rating for the episode in question. Each Friday, we’ll reveal your highest-rated episodes for the week. The top vote-getter for this week, The CW’s The Vampire Diaries, should prrrrobably not be that huge of a shock given the show’s rabid following, and a strong episode that saw Elena, Alaric, and Damon confronting a hybrid just hours before a full moon. The biggest surprise? The polarizing series premiere of Fox’s New Girl pulled in the most total votes by far, and easily broke into the top five shows. Check out the rest of the list below: 

2. Parks and Recreation (NBC)

3. New Girl (Fox)

4. Survivor: South Pacific (CBS)

5. Modern Family (ABC)

Honorable mentions: Community, The Sing-Off, The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills

(For this week only, Friday and Sunday shows were not included; they’ll be incorporated next week.)

Unhappy with the winners? Then check out EW’s recaps each week, and make sure to rate that week’s episode!
