Beauty and the Beast: Season Two Ratings

Beauty and the Beast ratingsDespite having The Vampire Diaries as a lead-in, the ratings for The CW‘s Beauty and the Beast declined quite a bit last season. How will the show do this year? Will it be cancelled or renewed for a third season? Stay tuned to find out.

On Beauty and the Beast, a beautiful detective (Kristin Kreuk), navigates her evolving relationship with a handsome doctor (Jay Ryan) who becomes a terrifying beast. Others in the cast are Austin Basis, Brian White, Max Brown, and Nina Lisandrello.

The ratings are typically the best indication of a show’s likelihood of staying on the air. The higher the ratings (particularly the 18-49 demo), the better the chances for survival. This chart will be updated as new ratings data becomes available — typically the following morning, around 11:30am EST/8:30am PST. Refresh to see the latest.

I live in US and I really like this show. It is not advertised as much as the other shows. I watch Arrow and BATB is never advertised, but Arrow and other shows are advertised on BATB. And it airs at 9:00pm not 8:00pm in the US.

Yes, that’s true. The CW Network doesn’t promote Beauty and the Beast as much as their other series, and “Beasties” have complained about this. Of course, the show is on hiatus currently and won’t return with 13 new episodes until early 2015. Perhaps when it gets closer to airing, advertising will pick up. The internet fan base is trying hard to do promotions, so hopefully that will continue to help. I love this series and want it to continue as well!

Sorry, I don’t understand your question. The show is returning for a third season. It may be the last season but it might not.

i am saying everyone lives in the unites states need watch season 3 on tv to get the ratings back up then will have a season 4 and it comes back on tv in 2015 sometime

Vasileios, Catherine is not a beast and will not be turned into a beast because she loves Vincent, nor will she get any of his beastly powers. The series has struggled in ratings in the US, but has done very well internationally. It was almost cancelled after season 2, but CW’s president decided to renew it due to the international ratings — but only for 13 episodes. Those that love BATB, known as Beasties, are hoping ratings will increase in the US and if so, maybe more episodes will be ordered. I am in the US and, along with other Beasties try and promote this wonderful series as much as possible. I love BATB, its actors and crew that make this love story, so hopefully it will continue. Don’t give up hope!

Rebecca Ross October 8, 2014 at 8:56 pm

Yes, season 3 of Beauty and the Beast will have 13 episodes, but maybe fans can convince the CW to increase the number. Season 3 will not air in the U.S. Until early 2015. The DVD of Season 2 will probably be available by the end of the year, hopefully.


kira October 9, 2014 at 1:48 pm
