    THIS IS THE ONLY SHOW I WATCH. PLEASE RENEW IT. I THINK THE ACTORS ARE FANTASTIC! People that expect completely historically accurate TV shows on the CW are ridiculous.

    Reign is fantastic. I think the acting, plot, characters, and even the setting of this show are superb. I love it and my family loves it too. Every single episode is interesting, and the end of each episode so far leaves us with a great desire to watch the next episode. I will be sure to spread the word. It would be such a shame for Reign to be cancelled. Please renew it! And make many more episodes and seasons!

    Dear CW,
    If ratings are based on actual viewers watching the night Reign airs on CW, it should be counted as erroneous and an outdated mode system of rating. We are in an era of streaming through other venues such as netflix, hulu plus, amazon, and network websites; and I would venture to say the majority of viewers watch Reign at varying times for varying reasons. Viewers have so much more control over when they choose to watch episodes than once upon a time. Viewing habits have changed, so therefore the rating system should change. I personally will pass up watching an episode on the night of network airing just so I can watch the episode on a streaming venue that has a great deal less advertisement interruptions. I believe it would be extremely short-sighted for Reign to be canceled based on this archaic rating system. I also believe streaming to be the way of the future to better meet the way viewers are opting to watch, no matter how many in the entertainment business continue to bury their heads in the sand wearing blinders. Change is inevitable in life, and in the world of entertainment change is here and happening now, whether networks keep up or not! The forum comments should be paid attention to and know that the majority of viewers will not stop to post, so for every viewer post there is the possibility that a considerable amount of viewers feel the same way and do not stop to post. CW, please consider other ways of determining a shows popularity before taking such a drastic step as not renewing Reign.

    This better be renewed. Never been so invested in this show, and it’s really got my attention on CW. If this show was showed internationally (I live in INdonesia) there would be so much more love ):
