    A bit surprised by TSC cancellation, but can’t say I’m disappointed but I hope Phoebe Tonkin finds a better series.

    I still have a LOT of faith that Ringer will be picked up by another network. I think it’d fit in great on Lifetime. Maybe even Netflix! Whatever the case, I still feel like we haven’t heard the last of Ringer.

    Well, at least there’s a final end date for that POS Gossip Girl to get off my screen. Expect it to plumb new ratings depths in its last season, especially if it comes out in the spring.

    I figured it would come down to a contest between TSC and Nikita, since they were essentially vying for the same spot on Fridays. Sounds like that means SPN will stay in its slot.

    To this day I never understand how Gossip Girls keeps getting renewed.

    Deadline has Secret Circle as cancelled so that’s most likely right.

    can someone explain why, ringer was cancelled over nikita,gossip girl,hart of dixie that all done just as bad…

  • Jessica

    I’m kind of surprised HOD got 22 episodes and GG got 11 when their numbers were pretty close and all signs were pointing towards HOD being cancelled, but whatever. I’m just happy GG was renewed and will have closure! Hurray! Chair for the win!

  • Sarah

    A knew the Ringer cancellation was coming but it still sucks. Not surprised with the short final season for Gossip Girl.

    Maybe they will take Phoebe Tonkin to TVD and reunite her with her old costar C. Holt :)

    don’t troll pls pff

    Stay mad, GG haters. :D

    And the writers said see you in the fall, so GG will finish off during the fall.

  • Gaius Bolling

    i think it got cancelled because they know it would do very bad on its own. it didn’t really retain the vampire diaries audience at all.

  • Michael

    Poor Britt R.

    She simply can’t catch a break.

    Life Unexpected= Canceled
    Secret Circle= Canceled

  • Anthony M

    Gonna miss all of those Secret Circle girls..especially Phoebe and Britt.

  • Dillan


    OMG, I would love that. Pheobe was one of the main reasons why I loved TSC.

  • Tom

    Ugh, so bitter about SC. I know it’s not rational, but I feel the CW owes it to the fans to renew it now after that whole “Yay! HOD and SC both renewed!” fiasco

  • SmG

    TSC cancellation should be remembered as a sign that the shows performance in the last 4-5 episodes is really important. I think if it hadnt hit that 0.5s and kept going at 0.7s it would have renewed over HoD.

  • Kavyn

    Sorry to the TSC and Ringer fans, my condolences.

    The Secret Circle now trending on twitter! ;)

    Britt R is the Lindsay Price of CW
