Tonight, the CW airs the season finale of Privileged
. While some may have been hoping for a nice happy resolutions, the TV show is leaving plenty of cliffhangers. Will the cast and crew return with season two to answer them?
The story of Privileged
opens as Yale-educated Megan Smith (JoAnna Garcia) begins working for cosmetics tycoon Laurel Limoges (Anne Archer). She's hired as the live-in tutor for Laurel's twin teenage granddaughters, Rose (Lucy Kate Hale) and Sage Baker (Ashley Newbrough). Megan's ultimate goal is to make sure that the spoiled girls are accepted into a top university. Though the twins seem to have every advantage, it's no easy task. Others in the cast include Allan Louis, Brian Hallisay, Kristina Apgar, Michael Cassidy, Rizwan Manji, Alice Greczyn, Stacy Barnhisel, Melissa Ordway, Ignacio Serricchio, David Giuntoli, John Allen Nelson, Dave Franco, Ally Matsumura, David Monahan, Sharon Lawrence, Andrew J. West, and Steven Culp.
Despite positive reviews and plenty of buzz, Privileged
debuted on September 9, 2008 to 2.64 million viewers and a 1.2/3 rating/share of the 18-49 demographic. Those numbers were nothing to get excited about, even by CW standards, and the demo numbers were particularly disappointing based on the show's projected audience. The ratings dipped a little in week two but then fell significantly to just 1.81 million and a 0.8/2 for episode three.
