On January 28, 2011 millions of people were looking forward to the hit tv show Smallville’s return after the long holiday break.
As everybody sat down around their televisions at 8 pm that night, a surprise was delivered.
Smallville was not on!
It was not on our Canadian channels, Space The Imagination Station or channel 12, CHCH. You see what happened was that the hit show Vampire Diaries was beat out by American Idol in the ratings when it aired on January 27, 2011.
So the people in charge of The Vampire Diaries decided to air it again on January 28 in place of Smallville.
If you ask me, they had no right to crush the spirits of people everywhere because they were greedy for ratings.
Sometimes it is just amazing how some people do not care about anybody but themselves. The people in charge of Vampire Diaries probably just wanted to get more ratings because it would make them look good if the show became very, very popular, which if you ask me is a long shot!
So now on February 4, 2011 at 8:00 at night Smallville fans everywhere can tune in to watch the new episode of Smallville titled Collateral.
As long as Vampire Diaries does okay in the ratings this week.
