Beauty and the Beast ratingsDespite having The Vampire Diaries as a lead-in, the ratings for The CW‘s Beauty and the Beast declined quite a bit last season. How will the show do this year? Will it be cancelled or renewed for a third season? Stay tuned to find out.

On Beauty and the Beast, a beautiful detective (Kristin Kreuk), navigates her evolving relationship with a handsome doctor (Jay Ryan) who becomes a terrifying beast. Others in the cast are Austin Basis, Brian White, Max Brown, and Nina Lisandrello.

    I agree with everyone on here. I love Beauty and The Beast. The new season is great it leaves me guessing will Vincent and Cat get back together or what is going to happen.
    Hope the show gets another season.

    This show has a huge following world wide and gets great ratings in many countries. Season 2 is better quality and has really developed a great story line that can build a strong foundation for even bigger returns. So please don’t cancel the show.

    If BATB gets cancelled then that’s if for me with The CW, i’ve been addicted to this show since day one, the fans are amazing and really support the show. The CW should advertise it like it does the other shows on their network, Beauty and the Beast won 2 peoples choice awards this year beating all the other CW shows in their category. Just cause the ratings in the US are bad doesn’t mean people around the world are not watching cause they are. Its sad really that a show hangs in the balance cause of Neilson ratings, in this day and age of online viewing, ITunes, Hulu etc. So yes I will be bitterly disappointed if this show gets the axe.

    If I had magical powers I would make everyone’s Television tune into the CW every Monday night for BATB. Our ratings would surely go up. LOL! I’m going to have to boycott the CW if they keep cancelling my favorite shows. BATB is my favorite show right now- on any network.
