Unfortunately, those numbers started to slide pretty quickly and late last month, Hellcats fell as low as a 0.4 in the 18-49 viewers, a 0.7 in the young female demo and fewer than a million viewers.

While it’s not the lowest-rated series on The CW when you look at the season averages, it’s been in a decline all season and showed no signs of turning around.

As a result, the network has decided to cancel Hellcats. All the 22 episodes of the series have aired with the de facto series finale running last night.

What do you think? Are you sorry there won’t be a second season of Hellcats? Why do you think the series didn’t attract a bigger audience?

    Just another example of a quality show that couldn’t connect with enough of the public because all the majority of people seem to want to watch is crap. I really liked this show…and not just because it had a bunch of attractive young ladies in skimpy clothing. 😉 What I really found refreshing was that I thought they handled all the dramatic situations in a very realistic manner. Every conflict between there characters wasn’t some sort of misunderstanding or mis-interpretation without knowing the facts. They actually dealt with issues and resolved them as you would hope would be handled in real life. Unlike say, every situation on 90210 which is somehow still on the air. I guess it just proves that the public doesn’t want reality in TV dramas unless it on “reality” shows. Just add Hellcats to Firefly, Popular, Pushing Daisies, Tru Calling, Dollhouse, Flash Forward and Sportsnight as quality TV that never had a chance.

    I used to be a college cheerleader, and to be honest, the show had nothing to do with cheerleading. I thought there would at least have been some cool stunting or tumbling in it, because that is really what it is all about anymore. Competitions have become a joke with everyone’s ADD mashed up music and teams trying to stuff so much into their routines that you don’t have time to appreciate any of it. It’s become more like a hobby, where the attraction is to learn cool tricks, kind of like parkour or free running. With that being said, the show was a lot of pretty faces and tight bodies wearing little to no clothing and causing a constant flow of drama. Haha, not that there is anything wrong with that, Baywatch was one of my favorite shows. I just think that the actual cheerleaders that tuned in were expecting something a bit different.

    I’m very pissed and upset that they have cancelled Hellcats. I usually don’t do these comment things, but I loved this series. It had everything you could possible want in a show. I wanted to know if Marti would get Dan because they deserve each other. And I wanted Marti to come to a closure with her dad and sister. I wanted Savannah to finally find Mr. Right. And I wanted Alice to grow into a better person. I don’t care of the viewer count was so low. There are people out here who thrive upon this series and taking that away left most of us wondering and guessing and especially upset that we won’t be able to find out every little thing until this show actually ends in Season 20 or something. I’m just disappointed and unhappy. Very unhappy.
