With Breaking Bad — and its stranglehold of the EW.com reader rankings — now out of the picture, it should surprise no one that The Vampire Diaries has vaulted back to the top of the pack, thanks to a jam-packed episode that featured Elena getting her Buffy on. Meanwhile, a new addition to the EW recap ranks, ABC’s Happy Endings, makes a happy debut at no. 4. Here are the full standings:
1. The Vampire Diaries (The CW) — last week: 2
2. Fringe (Fox) — last week: 3
3. Revenge (ABC) — last week: 5
4. Happy Endings (ABC) — last week: not ranked
5. Ringer (The CW) — last week: honorable mention
Honorable mention (4.5 stars or higher): The Amazing Race
