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?

Following a young beautiful homicide detective and her handsome-yet-scarred protector, Beauty and the Beast typically airs Thursday nights on The CW network. The cast includes Kristin Kreuk, Jay Ryan, Nina Lisandrello, Brian White, Max Brown, Nicole Gale Anderson, and Austin Basis.

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 love this show. PLEASE RENEW. I DO NOT watch detective shows , at all, but I like this. I love the romance between C & V. I am a romantic. I think, the show needs a “little kick” to bring people back to watch it. It needs something. I look forward to the show each week and I hate it when it is not shown every week. I even go on demand to watch the reruns.

R.E.N.E.W! Best show ever! The plot, the characters are so captivating. The hunt for beast is complicated and crazy. The chemistry between Catherine and Vincent (Kristen and Jay) is just MELTING. MFEO! WE WANT SEASON 2 (and many more)

Please renew BATB. This is the only show airing right now that I record and watch faithfully, then stream on line to view on my lunch break at work. I am so in love with this couple. This show has everything you wish real life had; action, adventure and a romance like you’ve never seen on television before. Their winning the “People’s Choice” is evidence of the devoted fan base they have. I can’t wait for the DVD of season one to go on sale, and look forward to a season 2,3,4 etc.
