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?

Fantastic series!!! I like Beauty and the Beast and its the only non-sports show that I watch at TV. I believe critics should have given the TV series a higher rating =D Well! who can blame them if they give low ratings?!! haha they are CRITICS and will always or usually give negative feedback instead of persuading viewers to watch a certain TV series. I hope there would be not just Season 2 but SEASON 200 =D

I am a 50+ and love this show. I think the chemistry between K & V is awesome!! Please give this show a chance. It gets better and better each week. And stop comparing it to the original in the 80’s. It’s a reboot, like Hawaii 5-0. I am hooked! Don’t cancel, please!

I’d like to see it given a chance. I wish it hadn’t been SO billed as a re-boot, which it isn’t. That torqued enough 80’s fans for them to besmirch the show.

As a show it has a Moonlight vibe and I enjoy seeing Brian White weekly.

Hope they shine through for a second season.
