Season 3 of the Vampire Diaries begins on September 15th on the CW 8/7c(8:00pm Eastern Time and 7:00pm Central Time USA).
Hello fellow TVD fans!We are less than a week away from episode 3x01 titled "The Birthday"and I know that the excitement is too much to handle.Lets recap a little bit ,shall we?

Waaaaaay back in May "As I Lay Dying"was one of the most anticipated episodes of season 2 and there is a reason why!Actually scrap that...There were many reasons!
1.The Ripaaaaah! - Stefan was responsible for Damon becoming a vampire in 1864 so when he found out that his brother was bitten 由 a werewolf he felt obligated to find a cure.Even if [To quote Katherine Pierce in 2x22]he had to sacrifice everything including Elena to save his bro.In the penultimate scene we see how Stefan was fighting the Rippah inside of him and in the end he gave in.
2.The Delena 吻乐队(Kiss) ❤- need to say more?
3.Jeremy and his dead girlfriends.To keep it short - Jeremy died ,he was brought back to life and now he could audition on linkthe remake.That last scene in the S2F was so shocking that I even had to 搜索 for my jaw on the floor.When I first saw the back of Vicky , I thought it was Katherine.But then when they showed her infront I was like "What.the.hell's going on?"Then Jeremy went downstairs with Vicky following silently in the back (spooky)and he saw Anna , my facial expression was link

After such a finale I was surprised that it only got like 2 and something million 查看 live.And yes I am aware that TVD was up against American Idol but there are other reasons.Many residents in the USA don't realy know when TVD airs so they watch it on the Internet and others tend to DVR the 显示 and then later watch it.

But are ratings even important?
Yes, they are really important.They are the reason whether TVD gets renewed 或者 cancelled , whether the CW will increase the 显示 budget, whether Elena will wear the same blue sweater all season ,whether we receive good edited 或者 bad edited episodes , whether we get good actors(guest starring actors 或者 even regulars) ,whether we get amazingly decorated sets,whether we get good effects on an episode and so on.As 你 can see ratings are 更多 important than they seem.And if 你 don't believe me check Ian Somerhalder's tweets from April , 7th saying that watching the 显示 live will secure its future.

But TVD is the number one rated 显示 on the CW at this moment.
True , but compared to the ratings we had at the begining of season 2 and the whole season 1 we won't be soon (Shows like Ringer and The Secret 圈, 圈子 have the potential of getting us of the throne)+The higher the ratings, the better we get =)
Ok.So how do we help in getting 更多 viewers?

1.WATCH THE 显示 LIVE!DON'T DVR IT AND THEN WATCH LATER. 你 can DVR the 显示 but watch it live! Please if 你 have the chance - do it.

2.I heard that the CW channel is rare in the USA.You can watch it online when it's airing.Here is a link link (Thanks Jendelena again for the link ^^)[b]

[b]Note: The CW is supposed to be offline.It comes online an 小时 before TVD airs 或者 it even comes online at 8pm .(Could 你 guys provide me with 更多 链接 for online watching in the comments? Thanks in advance =] )

3.Promotion.The CW can make 10000 promos but the truth is that 粉丝 have a big part in making the 显示 famous.No wonder everytime there is an award 显示 the actors say that they wont be here if it wasn't for us.If 你 follow some of teh advices bellow it might help TVD get 更多 粉丝 = 更多 views:

- Tell your 老友记 that TVD is a great 显示 and it deserves a shot =)

-"Like" TVD on Facebook.It may not seem important but when your fb 老友记 chech your 个人资料 they will see that 你 "like" TVD and they may give it a chance.

- Give 答案 to people who ask when does TVD air.Believe you'll be surprised how many residents in the USA don't know when TVD airs and on what channel airs.

- Favouriting TVD 视频 on youtobe also helps.Because late they appear on the front youtobe page of your yt 老友记 and subscribers.

- Talking about TVD on twitter ,tumblr ,myspace and all other social networks helps =)

- For twitter users: I think 粉丝 will be trending #TVDS3 on Thursday (15th).Maybe 你 could help =)

Why should I watch episode 1 of Season 3?

Well if the ratings aren't a good reason for 你 then 阅读 this link(spoiler alert for those who don't want to be spoiled) of the episode will help you.Or watching link amazing promo 或者 link mind blowing one.The episode will also feature Elena's birtday,The Rippah going on a murder spree with Klaus,Lots of Delena scenes,Naked Damon,Forwood(Warning:You gotta take a cold 淋浴 after seeing them in the promo),Catt,Alaric (the chunky monkey's back),Jeremy dealing with Anna and Vicky ,lots of blood and hotness,Bonnie or/and Katherine (hopefully!) and ofcourse I haven't forgotten 你 Stelena fans.Even though I know some of 你 want to boycott the 显示 because of the many DE scenes coming up (which I don't mind lol) As a DE 粉丝 I think that Julie and Kevin will feature one 或者 atleast 2 good scenes for you!(Otherwise how do 你 explain this pic from the set?) =)And if thats not enought from the gathered info I have from interviews Elena is not giving up on Stefan just yet.She will have him on her mind during her Birthday for sure.

Thank 你 soo much for reading!I really hope this interview had some kinda of an impact for you.And I hope that I made the people who DVR the 显示 to watch it live and that I made other promote the 显示 ! Thank you!Feel free to post this 文章 anywhere. (Credit me please )
