    Beauty and the Beast is an amazing show and I’m certain that it would get so many more viewers if it was advertised as much as The CW’s other shows such as The Vampire Diaries.

    BATB’s lack of success compared to other shows like TVD should not be attributed to the quality of the show itself. The difference is due to a growth of vampire fans following the Twilight series and the like, and because more advertising has gone into this domain. The only reason I ever heard of BATB was because I happened upon it on Netflix, other than that I had never heard anything about it even though I am watching two other shows on The CW (TVD and Reign).

    If the same effort was put into making BATB more known, I’m sure its ratings would soar. Please don’t give up on this amazing show!

    Beauty and the Beast is one of my fave shows and it has to stay on!! People need to turn their TV’s on more often instead of watching online and other resources, but it is a good show and it shouldn’t rely on ratings in this day and age, But TRUST ME, people are watching it :) It wouldn’t win awards if people didnt like the show, Hello…#PeoplesChoice

    I like BATB very much. It has everything a show should have: great cast, romance, chemistry, mystery, well written dialog, interesting story line.
    It is sold to more than 20 countries and have strong fan support. It is a winner of PCA for a second year.
    I hope you will find a way to keep it for the next season.

    Don’t cancel it. Ut declined in rating when you changed the day. Put it after the originals or super natural. It will boom if put on a night that can support it.

    Enjoy show. Hope it survives. Cast is too small this season. Hour long shows need 7-10 regular cast members to engage in side plots.
