    Ok but this is Sarah Michelle Gellar were talking about. Nikita had it’s chance and the show is just pure crap at the very least if it came down to ringer and Nikita being renewed by far it should be ringer

  • AC75

    I doubt Supernatural will ever go higher than Fringe or Fringe go lower than Supernatural, but there are a large amount of Fringe fans who said it wasn’t possible for their show to dip below a 1.0, too…

    The fact we’re even talking about a FOX program hitting CW levels proves how terrible Fringe ratings are.

    if it came down to ringer and Nikita being renewed by far it should be ringer

    You don’t understand how network renewals work. It’s not down to those two. They’re both failures (although Ringer failed right away, and Nikita at least waited a season), so they’ll both be cancelled.

    Ringer has not gotten 5 0.4’s haha what a joke

  • Sid

    “If TVD can get a 1.0+ every week, why can’t all other Monday-Thursday shows get above a 0.6? Same difference really.”

    Thank you so much for saying that!

  • Bridget Kelly


    Ringer will not be cancelled. The cw needs SMG

    When I saw the catastrophical Ratings of ‘CSI: NY’ I decided to create a petition for the Show’s Renewal.
    This is the webpage to sign the petition:
    If you are a fan of CSI: NY or if you just Love watching Gary Sinise, Sela Ward and the other sign this petition. I Think It can help the Show to be back this fall.

    @ sid

    its all about competition and seeing how every other network has declined in their own was the cw has too.

    renewals: gossip girl Hart of dixie Ringer

    cancellations: the secret circle Nikita

    you heard it first here

    @Bridget Kelly

    Ringer has not gotten 5 0.4?s haha what a joke

    Below is the link to Ringer’s ratings. It got .4 on 2/14, 2/28, 3/13, 4/3, and 4/10. Now count those dates. Five dates. Wow, counting! Amazing, isn’t it?

    If you’re going to make claims about the ratings, it’s probably best if you actually look at them first. But I assume you won’t be back after Ringer is cancelled next Thursday, so that advice probably isn’t going to matter.


  • Liz

    Geez, Bridget Kelly, couldn’t face the truth? You had to make up a sock puppet ASAP?

  • Fake Me Out

    @Tony “…Next season only has 13 episodes, And I’ll predict they will avg 1.2

    So you’re going on record to predict that a show that has lost ratings each and every year is now going to in it’s final shortened 5th season rise? Can I please have a dime bag of what you’re smoking?

    Since the Yule break Fringe avg is sub 1.0 and I’ll predict it’s final season average will also be sub 1.0 … but in the end what does it matter for the fans, they’ve got their final 5th season and Fox has an albatross of their own doing hanging round their necks.

    @ Liz
    Fine. But it could have been worse.. Nikita numbers have been low all season whereas ringers averaged. 0.7 all season and a 0.6 since January. Plus it won tv guide magazine guilty pleasure which was advertised by the cw. They wouldn’t dothat if they aren’t proud of it. Plus it’s popular all over the world. It also won 3rd place in the e save one show poll. Oh also the ringer season 2 petition has nearly 10,000 signatures. And the added bonus of Sarah Michelle Gellar as the lead. So try and top that you imbisul and before you bash a show why don’t you try watching it? And if you say you watched the pilot I will slap you. Almost all pilots of all shows suck, so why don’t you try watching further into the series. It’s actually really good and deserves a second season

  • Liz

    So try and top that you imbisul

    This really says it all.

  • Fake Me Out

    @Fake Me Out “Since the Yule break Fringe avg is sub 1.0

    Oopps … slight math error. Actually Fringe is just a hair above 1.0 avg since the Yule break … my bad

  • Bridget Kelly

    Why? I’m just mad that you are bashing ringer. And notice how you ignored all the good things about ringer

  • Bridget Kelly

    @ cw inside

    Is this legit? :) if so why don’t you try telling Liz

  • Pete

    @ Bridget Kelly and CWINsider

    What planet do you two live on? because its not earth.

  • Bridget Kelly

    @ Pete
    Excuse me?

  • Pete

    @ Bridget Kelly

    You are delusional my dear

  • robin

    @Bridget Kelly
    you are delusional if you think ringer is getting renewed when even the secret circle is probably getting cancelled too when it has performed way better than ringer all season. and winning meaningless awards like fav guilty pleasure and being popular all over the world doesn’t even matter if that ratings are bad in the US where it matters. and having SMG as the lead isn’t a bonus when her paycheck is so big which makes the show even more expensive.
