Hey, Vampire Diaries fans! Nice work! All your tweets and Facebook statuses made TVD the most talked about show on social media last week. For the first time, TVD has topped Trendrr’s list of the most social primetime TV series on broadcast television, ranking as network TV’s #1 social program during the week of January 21–27.

The Vampire Diaries fans threw a #TVDparty throughout social media last week, generating nearly 865,000 social interactions across Twitter, Facebook, GetGlue and Viggle according to Trendrr.TV, taking a bite out of former list topper American Idol and besting iconic hits such as The Simpsons, Family Guy and Glee.

The Vampire Diaries: Behind the Scenes Pictures & Video Sneak Peek

February 4th, 2010

I have been loving the new episodes of The Vampire Diaries, and I am so glad it’s back. Tonight’s episode is a flashback to 1864. And let me say, those vampires look good in 1864. Here is what the network has to say about tonight’s episode:

“In flashbacks, Stefan (Paul Wesley) and Damon (Ian Somerhalder) recall the long-ago actions taken by townspeople including their father, Guiseppe Salvatore (guest star James Remar, “Dexter”), and Pearl (guest star Kelly Hu, “Army Wives”), leading to the devastating events that caused the rift in their relationship.  In the present, Bonnie’s (Katerina Graham) date with Ben (guest star Sean Faris) takes a frightening turn.  Elena (Nina Dobrev) helps Stefan as he and Damon race to find the missing journal that belonged to Elena’s ancestor.  Stefan learns the reason behind Alaric’s (Matt Davis) interest in both the journal and the town’s history.  Damon discovers that an old acquaintance has returned to town with an agenda he understands.”

Here are some great behind-the-scenes photos:

Vampire Diaries Returns Tonight

January 21st, 2010

I have really missed this show! So excited for it to return!

Best TV Of The Year: 2009

December 24th, 2009

As opposed to my Best of the Decade list which contained moments and episodes from the decade, this list will be less extensive because I didn’t want to limit myself to 5 best shows of 09. Keep in mind, this is in no particular order!

1.  Parks and Recreation: I did not enjoy this show in its first season. It was always all about “the pit” and getting rid of the pit. I adore Amy Poehler, but her role seemed a bit too Michael Scott-esque to me. However, whatever happened during the off-season was fantastic. Season two has been hilarious. The pit has taken a secondary role, and each character has had a chance to develop and grow. I didn’t care for Andy in the first season, but he has become one of my favorites. I think this show deserves a ton of recognition for really stepping up its game. It is a show I look forward to every week.

2. Lost: This past season has been phenomenal. Time changing, Dharma goodness, Hurley’s hilarious questions…it’s all been great. The creators are brilliant, and I have faith that they know exactly what they are doing and that the series finale is going to blow our minds.

3. How I Met Your Mother: This year has had such great episodes as The Playbook and The Front Porch (I will never forget how hard I laughed at suitjamas). While this show can have its up and downs, every episode makes me happy. And any excuse to watch Barney Stinson (Neil Patrick Harris) wax poetic about his “bro code” and “lemon laws” is great in my opinion.

4. The Office: Season 5 started off (in ’08) with the Jim and Pam proposal, and ended on a pregnancy. And season 6 had one of the best episodes of The Office ever with the Jim/Pam wedding. It was perfect in so many ways–hilarious but also showed us what we have been wanting for 6 years. I may have watched the boat scene upwards of 10 times. The show is at its best truly brilliant, and it has been a great season thus far. I can’t wait to see more.

5. Party Down: This show on Starz Network has garnered quite a following for itself. Created by Rob Thomas (of Veronica Mars fame) it stars many of his VM colleagues, and is truly fantastic. It is a hilarious and wonderful portrayal of a catering company in Los Angeles, and its employees who clearly want to be more than just cater waiters. It returns for a 2nd season in 2010, where Kristen Bell will be back, and Megan Mullally joins the cast. This is a show you must see! Catch up with it on DVD before season 2 begins.

The Vampire Diaries Marathon Starts TONIGHT

December 14th, 2009

With a lull in new episodes of TV, the TV Chick is here to tell you some things you might want to check out while you wait for other shows to return (Glee, come back, please!) The Vampire Diaries was one of my favorite pilots, and has lived up to my expectations. Even if vampires aren’t your thing (which really, why would they not be?), the cast is great, the stories are interesting and the writing is not like that of other teen shows. Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder are two more great reasons why you should tune in. If you haven’t been watching, the show is based on a series of Young Adult Novels. It centers around the city of Mystic Falls, where Stefan (Paul Wesley) falls in love with Elena (Nina Dobrev). She reminds him of Katherine, his long lost love (and also his maker). Stephen is a “good” vampire, who doesn’t feed on human blood. He has been living in relative anonymity in Mystic Falls until his brother Damon (Ian Somerhalder) decides to return and wreak havoc. There’s also a witch, and a community of vampire haters/hunters. Bianca Lawson from Buffy and Saved by the Bell: The New Class even guest stars!

In the world of Twilight and True Blood (which I love), The Vampire Diaries brings a unique spin on an almost overdone topic. So, what are you waiting for? You should watch! The CW will be re-airing every episode from the first half of Season 1 starting tonight. They will air two episodes each night from Monday, Dec. 14 through Friday, Dec. 18 from 8:00-10:00 p.m.

Be sure to tune in for some sexy vampire action — I mean great TV!

VIDEO: The Vampire Diaries clip

The Vampire Diaries is one show that I have loved since the pilot, and has just gotten better. I love all things vampire, but the acting is fantastic and the storylines continue to get more interesting and complex.

So, just for fun, check out a clip where Paul Wesley (Stefan) discusses The Vampire Diaries:
