It looks like things are stabilizing. Week three garnered a 0.9 demo rating once again with 1.98 million viewers. It’s still one of the higher averaging shows on the network but that’s not saying much.
Season average: 1.0 demo with 2.25 million.

Episode 01-02: Tuesday, 9/20/11
The second episode attracted a 0.9 in the 18-49 demo with 1.94 million viewers. That’s a loss of 25% in the demo and 31% in total viewership. This is not a good sign for the show’s future at all.
Season average: 1.1 demo with 2.39 million.

Episode 01-01: Tuesday, 9/13/11
The TV series debuted to a 1.2 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 2.84 million viewers. While Ringer showed significant growth out of its 90210 lead-in, it didn’t do much better than Hellcats did a year earlier. The quarter hour breakdown of the numbers show little erosion, meaning that most people kept watching Ringer until the episode was over.

Note: These ratings are collected by the Nielsen company and are the final national numbers. These are different from the fast affiliate numbers which are just estimates of the actual ratings and are reported on by most other outlets. The final nationals are typically released within 24 hours of the programming or, in the case of weekends and holidays, a couple days later.

    I think this show is “enjoyable nonsense”. The plot is very contrived and not really believeable. Nevertheless, I am still watching it as I do enjoy it. Its a guilty pleasure

  2. Gail M Burkey says

    I love “Ringer”!! And, so do my friends! Its story line and twists and turns are among the most interesting of any show out there, comparing to “NCIS” or “Criminal Minds” with a really fresh plots as it is unwinding! Go “Buffy”!!!

  3. Tara says

    They can’t cancel this show, they haven’t even given it a chance. I love what I’ve seen so far and defenitely want to see more.

  4. says

    best show on tv this year,or in a long time,id be very happy with 7 more years of smg, shes so great,just give the show a chance,the numbers will grow,all the net work sees is numbers,well how about seeing a great show,when theres none to be found,and then your lucky to get something like ringer,one day SMG,will be holding an OSCAR,in her hands,i hope the brass will think of that,.

  5. Tamara says

    Please don’t cancel! This show is so exciting & I can never guess what’s going to happen next! I love that! And SMG (SMP) is my fav actor! Shes so amazing to watch! Dual roels not easy but she does amazing job!

  6. maryb says

    I actually really like this show. It’s very addictive, and while it’s sometimes soap-opery at times, I really enjoy it! I’m not sure how long they can keep it going but I am very hopeful that it gets a chance to actually end, rather than get cut – I need to know how it ends!!

  7. Diana says

    This is a TERRIFIC program. I look forward to it every week. I hope it continue. It would be a shame to see this show end.

  8. Jae Lynn says

    Renewed! I love seeing Sarah Michelle back on tv & I loooooove the show I even bought the season on iTunes. There’s only one other show I’ve ever bought on there & it was Camelot, which was an amazing show that I hear sadly has not been renewed for a second season. I really hope we get more of the Ringer! I can’t take any more cancelations! Added to that list The Playboy Club (I loooove Amber Heard) & Pan Am which I feel both didn’t even get a fair run. So please keep the Ringer & Secret Circle!!! I’ll just die without them too!!!! So not fair for the fans to get all into a show and not even get so see the entire season run like Playboy & Pan Am. So sick of Dancing with the Stars & the Biggest Loser. Give these shows a chance at least!

  9. Nicole says

    I loved this series. Lots of suspense and mystery and tension. Kept me on the edge of my seat… The casting was really great, too.

  10. Carter says

    I am really enjoying this show and actually get a physical rush from watching new episodes. You need to correct the numbering of episodes in your analysis. The pilot should be labeled episode 01-00 and the midseason finale 01-09. You have two episodes labeled as 01-06. Ten episodes have aired thus far including the pilot.

      ME TOO! I have to hear every word so I don’t miss anything! I get a rush knowing it is about to come on! I have people in their 80’s and 90’s that watch this show!

  11. Karito says

    I LOVE IT!!! And I can’t wait to see what’s going to happen!!!! I live in Mexico and all my family gets together to watch the show, please start the second season…por favor, por favor, por favor….Saludos de Mexco =)
