One Tree Hill: The CW Orders Six Additional Scripts

One Tree HillThe CW has decided to order a half dozen more scripts for their venerable drama, One Tree Hill. They won’t necessarily be produced but it’s a good sign that the network has ordered them.

When the show was renewed last May, it was reported that the network had ordered a full season of 22 episodes. The network later corrected that report and indicated that only 13 episodes had been ordered, with a possibility of nine more.

Additional episodes don’t seem very likely considering this week’s ratings. Last week, season eight of One Tree Hill debuted to a 1.1 in the 18-49 demographic and 2.14 million viewers. This week, the ratings dropped to a 0.9 in the demo and 1.86 million — a week-to-week loss of 20% in the demo. These latest figures match last season’s ratings low.

Considering that One Tree Hill was barely renewed last May, this doesn’t bode well for the show’s future. If the ratings keep going lower, the show will surely be cancelled next spring.

What do you think? Is it time for One Tree Hill to end? How would you like to see the story conclude?

    This show went south a couple seasons ago. It has completely jumped the shark. Season 8 is so painful to watch and yet I can’t help myself; I’ve come this far and feel like I have to finish. Seriously thoug – a movie star who moonlights as a bartender? Brooke has decided to just stop designing completely? Is there a point to Quinn and Clay? Chuck… why is Chuck there and the show tune… were you kidding or serious? The super hero outfits…. oh my. I assume the writers have just given up. Also, Brooke and Julian are seriously getting annoying. Yeah yeah… “Aw we’re having a baby” and “Yes, Brooke Davis – we are having a baby” and then they make out is about as far as their characters go now. What a shame when you compere season 8 to season 1. Really, it doesn’t matter what you do to the show now because you’ve pretty much destroyed it.

    hey i think u should do the 22 episodes and the next spring season. its an amazing show. and there are many many devoted fans. ever think it was the beginning of fall last week and the end of summer the week before maybe thats why. i think tree hill is amazing and lucas and peyton should come back loosing them lost some ppl. but dont forget about the faithful ppl who stood at the rivercourt or did the petions to get this show back this year. they’ll come back and there will be probably more. its a family show. my 2 year old daughter loves this show. her first laugh was with this show. please keep it.

    I love the show. I started watching this summer it was so good that I watched all of the seasons. As much as I love the show it is isnt the same. Not because Lucas and Peyton left. It has lost its essence. The show would hit the mark with current events such as teenage marriage in the early 2000’s the high school shooting and other story lines. It was a show but yet relatable and its audience loved it for that reason. I will miss it I have to admit. I think even if they did change up the writing its too late. I just saw the Halloween episode not so good. My favorite is James I’ll miss seeing the dynamic he and Beth shared. Hopefully it goes out with a good End.

    I have watched tree hill from the begining. I was always for Lucas and when he left I didnt think the show could do it because he was the main guy. I hated that they left, I guess I have this hope they return for a show or two, but honestly the has done great with out Lucas and Payton as I much as them. I hate to think that my all time favorite show might be ending.
