CW Picks Up Five Series B&C

The CW has announced early pickups for five series. B&C reports that the broadcast network announced renewals for dramas "Arrow," "Reign," "The Originals," "The Vampire Diaries" and "Supernatural."

Said CW President Mark Pedowitz: “This season we've had great success with our new hit series 'The Originals' paired with 'Supernatural,' giving us our best Tuesday nights in years. 'The Vampire Diaries' is #2 in its time period in the young adult demos, and with 'Arrow' continuing to gain among young men, and 'Reign' growing its time period, we now have strong nights on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday."

The B&C report adds: "In the most current Nielsen ratings (live-plus-seven for the season with live-plus same day for the most recent episode), 'Arrow' is averaging a 1.5 among adults 18-49 and a 1.3 in the network's target 18-34 demo; 'The Originals' is averaging a 1.5 and 1.4; 'Reign' is averaging a 0.9 and 0.7; 'Supernatural' is averaging a 1.5 and 1.4; and 'The Vampire Diaries' is averaging a 1.8 in both demos."
