The CW orders a full season of 'Vampire Diaries' and more 'Melrose Place' episodes

VD101b_0355b

Breaking: The CW has ordered a full season of breakout series "The Vampire Diaries" and five more episodes of "Melrose Place."

The "Vampire" order is not surprising. The undead teen drama, from executive producer Kevin Williamson, is a full-fledged hit, delivering 3.8 million viewers to its most recent episode (and a 1.8 rating/5 share among adults ages 18 to 49).

On the other end, "Melrose" has not been a ratings winner for the network; last night's episode drew just 1.5 million viewers, according to overnight Nielsen numbers.

But the CW might have a secret weapon in original "Melrose" star Heather Locklear, who is booked to reprise her role as miniskirt-wearing ad executive Amanda Woodward for a multiple-episode run beginning Nov. 17.
