The CW premiere of The Vampire Diaries was the most successful new show premiere in the network's history. Is this what we call the Twilight effect?

And well, there are hot chicks in this Vampire Diaries show too. So don't be surprised that the marketing for this was also successful because of the girls in it. 

Looks like CW doesn't have to rely on Supernatural and Smallville to survive anymore, at least, for the time being.
