    i know ratings matter for a show to continue. Merlin series ratings were not only centered on UK citizens but America, Africa, Asia even France. here in Nigeria fans are crazy. CW tv have a heart and consider other countries ratings too.

    give cat and vincent a chance for a third season. Nikita got a third so why can’t this? besides people are in love with the old story of beauty and the beast, c’mon there are many ways to make it more fun. cat should stop having distractive boyfriends in all the seasons same goes for vincent. Beauty and the beast deserves a third season CW tv.
