Episode 01-03: Thursday, 9/29/11
The demo rose a bit this week to a 1.0 rating with 2.13 million. That was an increase of 11%. Because the rest of the network’s shows are doing so poorly, Secret Circle is CW’s second-highest rated show.
Season average: 1.1 demo with 2.43 million.

Episode 01-02: Thursday, 9/22/11:
Ouch! What a difference a week can make. After a positive premiere, Secret Circle ratings took a big dive in week two. The episode rated a 0.9 rating in the demo and 2.12 million viewers. That represents a loss of a whopping 31% in the all-important demographic. It’s certainly not good news. Will the numbers keep dropping?
Season average: 1.1 demo with 2.58 million.

Episode 01-01: Thursday, 9/15/11
Secret Circle debuted to a 1.3 in the 18-49 demographic and 3.05 million viewers. The series premiere held onto most of the audience from the Vampire Diaries lead-in and didn’t lose many viewers as the hour progressed. That’s positive and bodes well for next week. Though it didn’t have much competition, Secret Circle is The CW’s best series premiere of the season.


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.

    This show is nothing like the books, which i have to say are much better. I keep waiting every week for something new to happen but it just seems to be the same thing and it’s getting BORING! The thing that makes the vampire diaries so good is that every week there’s a new twist that changes the characters and the situations. It’s packed full of action and the characters don’t spend the whole episode running around like headless chickens and not to mention there is so much love interest and so many love triangles that it keeps the show interesting. Adam and Cassie bore me so much! There’s no real passion in anything they do! I would like to see a second season just to see if it gets any better but to be honest I think it’s the writing thats the problem, I want to see more cliffhangers and twists and turns, things that naturally will keep any person interested ina story. I don’t want to be able to see the end of the episodes coming a mile off, honestly it is just poor writing, i think the characters are great! Bring in some new writers to spice things up and i’m sure it will be an amazing series! Team Jake all the way!

  2. cassandra rosario says

  3. Todd k says

  6. Brittany says

    I didn’t think I would like the show but then once I watched it, I liked the way it was written and filmed. i found the casting to be well done and a believed it. I would love to see the show re-newed for a second season.

  7. Kim says

    At first, I never thought I would come to like this show. But after watching a few episodes, I absolutely adore it! So PLEASE DO NOT CANCEL IT!

  8. Adam Decker says

    Why is it off the schedule? Shouldn’t they at least be showing reruns of the show? That seems weird to me.

  9. mimi says

    PLEASE! let this show be canceled. The CW ruins every good show they get. This show is just bad and should have been thought out better. Charmed was a great show that wasnt about pretty white kids with problems. Come on how hard can their lives be? They have magic… oh wait they bound themselves. Stupid. Great premise good idea but completely wrong network. Is to much to ask for the CW to add at least 2 full ethnic characters to the main cast to make this a little more relatable.
