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.

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 was very disappointed to just learn as I was trying to find a season 2 trailer that this series had been cancelled! Iam so bummed it was one of my favorite shows of the 2012! it was sad the writers had so much potential for growth and the actors really grew with their charactors. Iam sure Iam way to late but hope that cw will reconsider their decision!!

  4. zue says

    I loved the secret circle! I cant believe to hear it was cancelled! I loved thursday nights watching my favorite shows. I think it was a bad decision not to give it a second chance, there’s other shows that are worse and they still showing them.
