    We have a group of friends that get together every Monday night to watch Beauty and the Beast. We love it. Please don’t cancel this one.

    Please Please renew for season 3 i love beauty and the beast and can’t get enough!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    I actually think it is better than the vampire diaries and that is saying something as I also adore that show. It hasn’t had enough media coverage and its not until people find it they all say how brilliant it is.

    Really dig B and the Beast. Interesting take on how armed forces wanted souped up soldiers. Then threw what they couldn’t control under the bus. Nice chemistry with Cat and Vinnie. Would be nice if Netflix picks up the series, which seems to be on the ax list. KKreuk, who makes the show go, seems to have found a nice TV niche. She’ll be back in other TV series.

    Please save the show! This is the best show! It must go on! They should never be rated only on TV. Many people love and watch this episode online worldwide. And eagerly awaiting the new series and the new season!

    I love BATB .i feel there are to many new show on . I love the character s they are great especially Cat and Vincent. Too many show to compete against. Programming today so different than it used to be. I tape four shows watch three ,I’ve never had such an amount of shows to watch it’s ridiculous. Because Of the chaos of too many show you owe it to BATB to give them a third season AND CHANGE the night to a better one. Please don’t cancel this show

    I just want to know how they judge these ratings? If it’s just tv, there are a ton of people who watch online or through another service. I just know some of the best shows have been cancelled the past couple of years, & we keep being left with this horrible reality crap shows I could care less about. I really hope they keep Beauty & the Beast going…

      Should be renewed…but it doesn’t matter how many people watch. It only matters how many are watching at the air time because they see the commercials. None of the other viewers count. It’s all about the advertisers paying to have their products seen. It’s time they found a new way to pay for the programming.

        That isn’t exactly true. Whenever I watch TV shows on their networks websites, they show commercials. Several. So if one is watching it on the website it should count as if one were watching it on television.

    Beauty and the Beast really needs to be renewed for a new season! I fell in love with it from the moment I started watching it. It is a bit predictable but so are many romance shows. Take Once Upon A Time for example, very predictable, but still a great show! BATB is just as great, it just needs another chance!

    I love BATB. I think that it is doing well considering the bad slot it has been given this year. Move it back and give it a chance, it it absolutley fantastic and deserves a chance. I think the executive who messed about with the scheduling and also the style this year needs to take some responsibility and man up. Give it the shot it deserves it is a soooo good, I am glued and can’t wait until the next episode and can’t wait to get hold of season one dvd’s when they come out on 10th March in UK.

    Beauty and the Beast should have never been moved to Monday’s at 9:00 pm. There are too many shows on at that time to compete against! Even The Vampire Diaries and The Originals which are doing great would struggle on Monday’s nights! Beauty and the Beast did well on Thursday’s last season. They should atleast move it to a different night, even Friday’s, to give it a chance for season 3! This is a great show with great actors!!
