Know what was pretty shocking? I totally expected to hate "The Vampire Diaries" but gave it a shot while jonesing for my "Supernatural" fix and ended up getting hooked. Yes, it has all of the elements for the tweener crowd, but people get slaughtered on the show at the drop of a dime! Seemingly everyone is on the menu, and you gotta respect that. Not to mention it had one of the best damned season finales I've seen in forever.
The winners of the Fox Network's 2010 Teen Choice Awards were announced yesterday (with the actual awards show airing tonight, Monday, August 9th, at 8:00-10:00 PM ET/PT), and to say that vampires dominated the event is an understatement. The Twilight Saga movies (both New Moon and Eclipse) scored twelve of the surfboard-shaped trophies while The CW's popular "The Vampire Dairies" took home seven.

One panel we were really looking forward to at this year's San Diego Comic-Con was "The Vampire Diaries" on Saturday, July 24th; and while the cast and crew who participated were great, most of the questions asked by the fans during the Q&A didn't do much in the way of gleaning info on the upcoming season.

As mentioned at the end of June, "The Vampire Diaries" has added the character of Mason Lockwood, the recently deceased mayor's much younger and cooler brother, and now we know who'll be portraying him: Taylor Kinney of "Fashion House" and "Trauma" fame.

The CW Network may have decided to split up "The Vampire Diaries" and "Supernatural" by running them on separate nights starting this fall, but to us they'll always go together like ... well ... vamps and slayers. So it seemed fitting to combine the two tidbits of news we got about the shows' upcoming seasons.
