Plain Jane: CW’s Newest Reality Show; Cancel or Keep It?

Plain JaneThe CW recently debuted their newest reality show called Plain Jane. Each episode revolves around a woman receiving a makeover from British fashion expert Louise Roe. Is the show performing well or does it need a ratings makeover?

Plain Jane debuted on July 28th to poor ratings. The premiere attracted a 0.4 rating in the 18-49 demographic and just 990,000 viewers, ranking in fifth place for the timeslot in both areas. It was even outperformed by its lead-in, a repeat of America’s Next Top Model. On a positive note, the audience did grow a bit between Plain Jane’s first and second half-hours.

In week two, total viewership grew to 1.15 million viewers but the all-important demo remained the same at a 0.4 rating. This time, the demo rating dropped a bit between the first and second half of the show.

Four more episodes of Plain Jane have already been produced and it seems very likely that the network will let them air. The CW shows typically get much lower ratings than those on other networks. However, The CW has cancelled TV shows with similar ratings (High Society, Fly Girls) so it seems highly unlikely that they’ll be ordering any more of Plain Jane.

What do you think? Do you think Plain Jane is worth renewing for a second season or would you just cancel it now?

I really love this show. I have been waiting for more episodes but I have not seen any in several months. I hope you do not cancel this show. I believe it will become more popular as more viewers find out about it. It is sooooo great and positive and it always has a happy ending even if they don’t get their crush, they develop a more positive self-esteem. I really hope you keep this show!! :)

If you are someone like me, then plain jane is not just a show to you. It is an inspiration for those, like me, who also find themselves in the catagory of plain jane. It does not matter whether you are a teen, an adult, or a elderly individual, you can still relate to everything that is happening on this show. You can take all the advice and tips and apply them to not just men, but ANYTHING you wish to do. So please, keep this show because to many, it is not JUST a show where a plain jane turns into a beautiful woamn, but encouragement to be who you want to be and what you know you can be.
