    I think the same. I live in Poland so I can’t watch it on CW TV and it’s horribe. I wish they could look on watch counter on some websites. I have to wait till someone will upload video with subtitles and that doesn’t count on their counter. It’s an amazing show and it’s watch by millions of people. Just not on the TV on the air date.

    The thing about rating is that they just care about the national one. A lot of people from others countries actually watch the show. Some people record it or watch it later on the net ( not necessarily on the cw cause it’s unlock just for usa). I’m from Canada and unfortunetly i don’t have Showcase on my TV so i watch it on the CW but as i see it doesn’t even count. The show won people choice and the Network want to cancell it. I swear i’m done with them is they cancell BATB. I’m still mad after Ringer. Miss old good time when it was WB, just saying!

    I thought this season was a little better than the first one. The first season for me was below average for me. There were just a lot of unnecessary stuff and it actually could’ve gone better

      Aira, I agree with you and I’ don’t understand this low rating of the second season. Very sad if CW TV cancel BATB.

    Love BATB! I think I am borderline obsessed/addicted to this show!!! I Think Cat and Vincent’s chemistry is better than any other tv couple out there! Their romance is “epic” like JT said. Maybe if CW advertised a bit more, more people would watch it! Story line is great and if the old BATB could survive several seasons with hardly any story line, why not this version which is so much better? I think the other characters have developed nicely too and it seems like they work flawlessly together. Great cast and a lot more action! Nikita used to be my favorite but not even Nikita and Michael have the chemistry that Cat and Vincent have. Anyone who loves romance should love this show! Please renew for another season at minimum! I can’t wait til next weeks show!!!!!
