    I think it is not fair to look at the ratings in the USA. Think about all the countries who have to wait 6months for it to air! Think about all the people who have to stream it to watch! I also think people have to choose between different shows on monday, and some have to record it and watch it later! The ratings in USA are not at all right! Don’t the rest of the world have a say?

      No, you really don’t. I’m not being mean. This is a business, and the business is set up upon the determinations of USA Neilson ratings. That will change in a few years, but it has not changed yet. Advertisers pay for the broadcast shows based on those ratings, and they are not going to pay for a 0.3 rating regardless of how many PC awards your show wins. That’s so low even the affiliates might balk at a renewal. And, sadly for your show, the CW has more successful shows this year than in a long time.

    Do you people live in the real world? Your show is getting a 0.3 rating in the demo and less than 1 million viewers. That’s the bottom of the barrel even in CW land. This show is not getting renewed at this level. It was pulled from the schedule and is destined for a summer burn-off of the episodes. The best you people can hope for is a decent ending.
