The CW has ordered three additional scripts for new shows Beauty and the Beast and Emily Owens, MD. The move will allow the writers to keep working while the network execs decide if they want to order more episodes into production.
Starring Kristin Kreuk and Jay Ryan, Beauty and the Beast premiered to a very healthy 1.2 demo rating and 2.78 million viewers. The second week saw the show’s numbers drop to a 0.7 rating (-42%) and 2.00 million (-28%). While the latter are still better numbers than most of The CW’s other shows, the ratings may continue to drop.
What do you think? Do you like either of these shows? Are you hoping one or the other will get a full season order?
