UPDATE: The CW is looking to give a better chance to high-profile new drama Reign and an extra boost to new drama The Originals by tweaking its fall premiere date plans. Reign was slated to debut on Oct. 10 against what is expected to be highly watched Cory Monteith episode of Fox’s Glee. Meanwhile, The Originals faces an uphill battle airing against ABC’s heavily promoted Marvel’s Agents Of SHIELD on Tuesdays. The Vampire Diaries spinoff, originally slated to debut on Tuesday, October 16, will now debut on Thursday, October 3 behind the season premiere of The Vampire Diaries, which has been moved up by a week. The Originals will move into its Tuesday 8 PM time slot on October 8 facing Episode 3 of SHIELD and followed by the season premiere of Supernatural, also bowing a week earlier than previously announced. The Originals will get another airing behind Vampire Diaries on Thursday October 10 (Episode 2 encore) before the CW launches new period drama Reign in the Thursday 9 PM slot on October 18, a week later than originally scheduled. Here are the CW’s revised fall premiere dates:
