CW shows - Hiatuses coming up soon

I just read that tweet from Julie Plec, writer on The Vampire Diaries :



So, within the next few weeks, all the CW series will start a big break (5 to 8 weeks) until January 2012.

If I'm not mistaken, here's what is going to happen :

The Vampire Diaries (Thursdays at 8) :

Episode 3.08 (Ordinary People) : Thursday, November 3, 2011.
Episode 3.09 (Homecoming) : Thursday, November 10, 2011.
Episode 3.10 (The New Deal) : Thursday, January 5, 2012.
Episode 3.11 (Our Town) : Thursday, January 12, 2012.
Episode 3.12 (The Ties That Bind) : Thursday, January 19, 2012.

The Secret Circle (Thursdays at 9) :

Episode 1.08 (Beneath) : Thursday, November 3, 2011.
Episode 1.09 (Balcoin) : Thursday, November 10, 2011.
Episode 1.10 (Darkness) : Thursday, January 5, 2012.
Episode 1.11 (Fire/Ice) : Thursday, January 12, 2012.
Episode 1.12 (Witness) : Thursday, January 19, 2012.

Episode 2.09 (Fair Trade) : Friday, November 18, 2011.
Episode 2.10 (Guardians) : Friday, December 2, 2011.
Episode 2.11 (Pale Fire) : Friday, January 6, 2012.
Episode 2.12 (Sanctuary) : Friday, January 13, 2012.

Supernatural (Fridays at 9) :

Episode 7.07 (The Mentalists) : Friday, November 4, 2011.
Episode 7.08 (Season Seven, Time for a Wedding) : Friday, November 11, 2011.
Episode 7.09 (How to Win Friends and Influence Monsters) : Friday, November 18, 2011.
Episode 7.10 (Death's Door) : Friday, December 2, 2011.
Episode 7.11 (Adventures in Babysitting) : Friday, January 6, 2012.
Episode 7.12 (Time after Time) : Friday, January 13, 2012.

Ringer (Tuesdays at 9) :

Episode 1.07 (Oh Gawd, There's Two of Them ?) : Tuesday, November 1, 2011.
Episode 1.08 (Maybe We Can Get a Dog Instead) : Tuesday, November 8, 2011.
Episode 1.09 (Shut Up and Eat Your Bologna) : Tuesday, November 15, 2011.
Episode 1.10 (That's What You Get For Trying To Kill Me) : Tuesday, November 29, 2011.
Episode 1.11 (It Just Got Normal) : Tuesday, January 31, 2012.

* The Vampire Diaries being the cornerstone of the CW programming, it's safe to assume that the CW will kick off 2012 on a Thursday with its Kevin Williamson duo. I don't think they'll program Gossip Girl & Hart of Dixie on January 2, 2012, they'll wait another week, same for 90210 & Ringer.

EDIT : Thank you, BoxManLocke and Hofbauer.

It makes sense, they can allow that extra episode in December for their Friday night duo since both Supernatural and Nikita have 23 episodes this season (unlike The Vampire Diaries, The Secret Circle and Ringer which all have 22 episodes), the CW schedule will still be coherent with all its shows left with the same amount of episodes for 2012.
