Beauty And The Beast Gets A Stay Of Execution

| Filed under: TV News

Beauty And The Beast

The CW is already starting to make some tough decisions about its new one-hour dramas, and it looks like Arrow is the only one to hit the target audience so far.

The action-drama loosely based on DC's Green Arrow got picked up for a full season after fantastic first episode numbers!

The ratings for Beauty And The Beast and Emily Owens, M.D. on the other hand, have not been what the doctor ordered.

Beauty had decent premiere numbers that dropped precipitously by the second episode. Emily just hasn't found much of an audience at all.

But execs may give both series another chance. They have ordered three more scripts, presumably to see if the shows begin to drop any bombs that might make headlines- or at least make viewers stick around.

If Beauty can keep the numbers of its lead-in hit The Vampire Diaries, it could be the fairest of them all. Time will tell if Emily Owens, M.D. is a Do Not Resuscitate.

    Oh no! I really like Emily Owens, M.D., but I didn't bother watching the premiere because I watched the early release online. It's very sweet and refreshingly different.

    "The action-drama loosely based on DC's Green Arrow…" WTF, Perez? Was "The Dark Knight" loosely based on Batman? "Man of Steel" and "Smallville" loosely based on Superman? Christ, you are an idiot. The show IS about Green Arrow. It is an origin story.

    I watched the premiere of B and B and hated it! The truth is Kristin Kreuk cannot act. She's horrid and in no way can carry a show. Arrow on the other hand, I like. It already has a good little plot going and the actor's can all hold their own. I wasn't surprised at all that they cancelled Secret Circle. The part of "Adam" was totally miscast. And you can't pick up a show's pace in the last four episodes of the season. Too many people had already given up.

    I really like Emily Owens M.D., and my girlfriend always talks about Beauty and the Beast, so I hope CW will pick up both shows for a full season. It’s still pretty early in the season, and I think both shows will get an uptick in numbers once more word-of-mouth gets out. We’ve already set timers for both shows on my Hopper so we can keep up with them. The huge amount of hard drive space helps me keep up with shows when I work extra hours at DISH. Emily Owens had such a great pilot that people will get hooked on the show just like me!

    I really hope they don't cancel Beauty and the Beast. I really like it and I think that if they give it a chance, it will develop a following.

    Re: Urba – I agree. I recorded the first 3 episodes of Arrow and even watched each episode twice but I just couldn't "feel" for the characters or for the show. It did nothing for me. I guess I prefer shows with supernatural elements. I accidentally watched BATB (forgot to turn off the TV after VD) and glad I did. I instantly fell in love with i! CW better not cancel the show. They need to give it a chance AND promote it like how they are promoting Arrow. I liked Secret Circle too (was shocked it was canceled).
