Ratings: Secret Circle Off to Bewitching Start

The Secret Circle got off to a magical start Thursday, retaining 100 percent of its Vampire Diaries lead-in among total viewers and nearly matching VD in the demo.

Kevin Williamson’s witchy new drama attracted 3 million viewers, notched a 1.3 rating in the 18-49 demo and set a time-period high for the CW among young adults.

The season premiere of Diaries, meanwhile, drew 3 million viewers, up a tick from its May finale, and a 1.4 18-49 rating (even with the finale).

Thoughts? After watching the debut, are you committed to joining the Circle?
