Beauty and the Beast and Emily Owens, MD: CW Orders Additional Scripts

The CW has ordered three additional scripts for new shows Beauty and the Beast and Emily Owens, MD. The move will allow the writers to keep working while the network execs decide if they want to order more episodes into production.

Starring Kristin Kreuk and Jay Ryan, Beauty and the Beast premiered to a very healthy 1.2 demo rating and 2.78 million viewers. The second week saw the show’s numbers drop to a 0.7 rating (-42%) and 2.00 million (-28%). While the latter are still better numbers than most of The CW’s other shows, the ratings may continue to drop.

Emily Owens, MD debuted last Tuesday to a 0.5 rating and 1.67 million viewers. That wasn’t a positive start and the ratings will likely drop tonight.

What do you think? Do you like either of these shows? Are you hoping one or the other will get a full season order?

    Keep beauty and the beast! Their relationship is growing nicely and the story of B&B is what it is so let ppl get into it! I watch the CW and didn’t know about the show till someone told me about it do maybe it wasn’t well promoted. It could be a great love story with action in modern life. So give it a chance! We have a group of friends that meet every thur night to watch.
