It wasn’t a great debut for this new show. The ratings were mediocre at best and will likely drop lower in week two.

    I love this show!! Its a relief t be brought back in time where cellphones werent causing neck pain. A true romance and the innocence of gowing up. I think it shows the true fn in life as teenagers. Bring on renewal SEASON 2!!!

    I LOVE THE CARRIE DIARIES!!! Such an amazing show! I’m hooked, everything about it is addicting! Love the cast, perfect choice of actors and actresses. Love the 80s, the music, clothes, it’s such a good throwback! Please renew it for another season! Annasophia Robb is perfect for this role. Please don’t cancel!!!!

    I love this series. I myself was also a fan of Sex in the city. This does have a totally different vibe to it but it also shows you where it all started. I hope they don’t cancel it. CW cancelled a few good shows and I hate when networks do that. 1.2 million people like something you would think that it was something good!

    I love SATC! Though I wasn’t expecting much, I love The Carrie Diaries now too! It doesn’t follow much of what we know from SATC but still offers just enough of a true Carrie feel. Love the characters and the actors! The 80s themes are an additional treat especially the music! Like someone crossed SATC with some John Hughes movie. Young people who aren’t constantly on cell phones, another treat! Hope it doesn’t get canceled!!!
