    I love this show and will be so disappointed if it gets cancelled. It didn’t start off as a A+ show but has gotten better and better with each episode, and the last episode (esp 16) has it all….comedy, romance, action and of course great chemistry between the two lead roles. What more could you ask for!

    I have just came across this show recently this season and I really enjoy it. I do not normally get into TV shows with my work and school schedule so I found it on Netflix and thought it was awesome. Then I found out that it plays on the CW and I have been recording the shows to watch ever since. I was actually looking forward to the episode tonight when I was sadden to find out that I have to wait until May and that the show may not get renewed. That will be terrible.

    I really love this shoe and truly don’t want it canceled. Every show I fall in love with gets canceled. Please let me keep this one.

    I LOVE this show…I am going to be sooooo heartbroken if this show is cancelled. Carrie Diaries is gone…! So they cannot take this away from me too! I Dont miss a week of this show….I tune in on my Hulu plus account every week so I can catch up….and With Kat and vincent not knowing where they stand anymore….I have to keep watching.! If this show cancels I am going to slowly lose faith in the CW network!

    Beauty and the beast is a great show I don’t get why the ratings are so low honestly its better than some of these shows that have been renewed so I’m confused

    I enjoyed Beauty and the Beast with Linda Hamilton and Ron Perlman and I love this one even more. Please give it a chance. There are fans following the show – I don’t understand how in this day of TIVO & DVR recording they can determine how a show is watched. I record everything and watch it at my leisure, and I know lots of my friends do the same thing. This show fits in with the other CW shows – I watch quite a few of their programs. Beauty and The Beast is one of my favorites. It’s won Peoples Choice Awards for 2 years I believe. The people must like it – if there is trouble CW should get on the writers not cancel the show.

    I don’t believe the rating system is accurate. And from what I’m reading online, neither do most of the population.

    This show has made it so I want to become a detective. I want it to come back. I want to know what exactly was behind Vincent getting charged with murder. I want to know if they are going to be able to figure out what other experiments are going on out there. I do think it would be good to get off the beast kick for awhile and let her get back to her job. I also wish something would of happened with Gabe a little more because Cat always sat around for Vincent but he never had to do that for her. This is one of my favorite shows and it does give a nice balance to the CW shows that are on. Please don’t kick the show off. I keep trying to get new people to watch it. Everyone I knew didn’t want to watch the Vampire Diaries until I told them they really should and now they are addicted to it. Give this show more of a shot and stop having so many episodes where its the same thing. give it some more drama like you do with your other shows.
