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.

BATB Raitings are really bad and the third season will be the last season according to the VP Mark Pedowitz only 13 episodes and that it and no more so I am begging you to stop watch BATB its a horrible show and I hate it

You know bulling is the last desperate act of the weak. I’m sorry they took your show off the air, but just get over it. Beauty and the Beast is the best show on the CW.

Interesting comments, some of which are made by people who really haven’t been watching it. It IS a love story between Cat & Vincent who both kick ass to save each other. Their two sidekicks, Tess & JT have very much been a part of the story. Glad it was renewed for a 3rd season. I love it! Based on spoilers, Cat & Vincent will grow as a couple, along with their friends and other characters. Keep watching!

Definitely worth renewing! :)

Like all shows, BATB have great/good/blah/bad episodes. But overall the show is good. I think they became aware that the show needed new life … the storylines were going too long and they gave us just what we needed with the final episodes for this season. It will be interesting to see how they bring us Season 3 … with the closing plots from Season 2 as a spring board. … glad that it was renewed.

Totally inlove with this tv show… Hope you guys would still continue the next season three.


Juanita July 9, 2014 at 3:59 pm

Anonymous July 9, 2014 at 2:23 pm

BATB doesn’t attract viewers and not interesting at all abc family has good shows on Mondays in the summer lineup I only saw the first season and it scares me too much


Keisha July 9, 2014 at 1:08 am

I absolutely love this show.. Please renew it. I love the plot … The relationship with Cath and Vincent .


Vicki July 8, 2014 at 12:15 am

I’ve loved this show, and have been a loyal fan, but I’m sad to say I’m a little disappointed with the direction it’s going.
The show is Beauty and the Beast and is supposed to be about how they save each other. Now macho Catherine really doesn’t need anyone to save her. The show is totally about Kristin Kreuk and Jay Ryan and the rest of the cast are really nothing more than footnotes.
I watched the show to see a love story not a one sided audition for Ms. Kreuk to be in the new Bond movie. We all know she can kick ass, is beautiful, smart and everything we want in our super heroes, but, I also wanted it be more about the beast. Jay Ryan is a terrific actor and should be given a chance to showcase his abilities.
I don’t want the show to be cancelled and I’ve wrote several times to the CW requesting that they save it and give it a 3rd season, however, if this trend continues I won’t be watching it.

Wondering what episode you are on because the show has gotten better and better. You say it should be about vin/cat but you claim it’s only about them. Soo not true. 2nd season finale was great. Everyone was involved in a big way. Hope you’ll keep watching. And Cat does need to kick butt if she and Vincent plan to save each other….. Love this show.


Tasha July 7, 2014 at 10:54 pm

Please renew I love this show I want to see more
