Buoyed by its splashy Olympic swimming trials lead-in — which drew 6.2 million total viewers and a 1.7 demo rating — NBC’s Saving Hope (3.3 mil/0.7) floated up two tenths in the demo and 22 percent in audience this week.

The news was not as good for other Thursday fare, however. Fox’s Take Me Out (2.3 mil/1.0) and The Choice (2.9 mil/1.2) …READ MORE

On The Vampire Diaries last week, witchy Esther set in motion a clever scheme to take down her dastardly son, Klaus: She bound all of the Original siblings together with a spell, so that if one of them were to be taken out, they would all die. This sort of mass annihilation would send panic into the heart of any fan of the CW series (airing Thursdays at 8/7c), but Elijah’s portrayer, Daniel Gillies, tells TVLine that he’s “never concerned” about his job security.

ERICA DURANCE, RAMON RODRIGUEZ

Erica Durance has a date with an Angel — all four of ‘em, actually — as a guest star on this Thursday’s Charlie’s Angels (ABC, 8/7c), which pays homage to the classic “Angels in Chains” episode circa 1976.

Well, she didn’t have to wait long.

On the market for barely a week after fulfilling her post-season Smallville duties, Durance landed the female lead in … READ MORE
