Beauty and the Beast: Season One Ratings

Beauty and the Beast ratingsWith a great lead-in, Beauty and the Beast has the best chance of any new CW show this season of getting solid ratings. Will it survive or, like last year’s Secret Circle, or will it be cancelled?

Year-to-year, compared to The Secret Circle’s premiere in the same post-Vampire Diaries timeslot, the network was down by 8% in the demo (vs a 1.3 rating) and down 8% in viewership (vs 3.05 million). While these numbers were still very good, Beauty and the Beast won’t survive if its numbers fall like Secret Circle’s did.


Note: These ratings are collected by the Nielsen company and are the final national numbers. These are different from the fast affiliate numbers which are just estimates of the actual ratings and are reported on by most other outlets. The final nationals are typically released within 24 hours of the programming or, in the case of weekends and holidays, a couple days later.

What do you think? Do you like the Beauty and the Beast TV series? Do you think it should be cancelled or renewed for a second season?

I was a huge fan of the original Beauty & the Beast series and followed it until the very end and I was a little doubtful about the new series. However, I watched the first episode and i knew i would be completely hooked. I look forward to Thursady nights as much as i do wed. for Supernatural. I really hope the pick up the series for a 2nd season. I am very interested to see how well this series could develop if given the chance.

I hate that the reviews have been so horrible and many of them are riddled with false/unchecked facts and misgivings. Beauty and the Beast is my favorite story and I think this show is great. I think it has a lot of potential that I am eager to see fulfilled. Kristin and Jay are adorable together. I can’t wait for the next episode this week. I hope CW gives it a chance. I want to see it play out. WATCH, Check In on GETGLUE, Like the FACEBOOK page, and TWEET about it (HASHTAG it #SaveBATB, let’s make it TREND) so, we can keep this show on the air. :)

For all the negative press (reviews), I think B&B is a charming show, well worth watching.

Hope CW & viewers gives this show a chance.

I agree Sabrina CW needs to give this show a chance I loved it and even though it is a new version of Beauty and the Beast people need to quit comparing it with the old version and let it be what it is a NEW show. Again I loved it and am on board for this season and hopefully more to come it has potential people give it a chance!
