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.

    RENEW FOR 3rd SEASON! I love the new Beast and how conflicted Vincent is about Cat and vice versa. This is definitely a show that deserves to stay!

    Yes please don’t cancel this show. It’s one of the best shows and ratings don’t mean anything. You have all of us fans watching it and that’s all you need. Keep it on for a third season. You can’t cancel this show and please don’t disappoint your fans.

    I hope to keep the show on by letting others know. It’s a great show! It’s awesome to see how the characters develop in each episode.

    I didn’t know about “Beauty and The Beast.” I stumble upon the show on Netflix. I’ve enjoyed every episode.

    Please don’t cancel!

    Don’t even think about NOT renewing this for a 3rd Season! The numbers don’t take in the delay for a Saturday showing, so let’s not put these figures in stone! This first episode took a little getting used to, not warm and fuzzy, there is definitely more grit and scary moments, but variety is the spice of life and Vin/Cat still have that spice going, even if Vincent doesn’t remember her!

    I love this show! It needs more publicity because it is a really great show. I will be very disappointed if it gets cancelled!

    I’m glad my DVR was set so I didn’t miss it! Wasn’t advertised very well that the day had changed…love this show! Hope it lasts forever!

    I absolutely love beauty and the beast! If it ends up cancelled I will have lost all interest in television and will be getting rid of it forever! This is one show where you can’t predict what’s gonna happen from one moment to the next like most shows our there today. I’m already questioning humanity but if this show goes then so does my faith in humanity. Please don’t take away the one positive in my life at this time.

    The series grew on me in season one. A little awkward at first, but they can’t all be Breaking Bad now, can they? The first episode of season two shows great promise. Different mood, different Vincent. Intriguing. I’ll keep watching.

    Personalmente pienso que “Beauty and the Beast” es una serie muy interesante, que tiene un poco de todo: emoción, acción, sorpresa, risa, sonrisa, amor, tensión, tragedia… y sobre todo “ingenio”, mucho “ingenio”. Por eso creo que a medida que avance cada vez serán más los espectadores enganchados a BATB. Yo recomiendo esta serie. Un saludo.
