Will 'The Cult' Premiere be a Cult Hit? - Poll

Tonight, the new drama Cult premieres on the CW.  The series should be of interest to many of our readers because its premise involves people who discuss TV shows on-line.  The question is how the very meta show will fare in the ratings. It has an incompatible lead-in, the dramedy Hart of Dixie. The entire premiere has been available on-line for about a week. There has not been a lot of marketing for the show. In its favor, it stars Vampire Diaries alumus Matt Davis.  This season, The CW has fared better with its supernatural/sci fi series than its teen series.  So how do you think it will fare tonight? Make your predictions.

    0.6 and will drop to a 0.4 in week 2, then hover in the 0.3-0.4 range for the rest of its run. 13 and done….The Selection for September

    ……and beathe :D

  • Rebecca

    I think the poll is too optimistic. I’m going for .4 range

  • Amy

    I saw the pilot online and it’s horrible. I’m sure people will watch out of curiosity though. I think it will get a 0.7

  • tommie

    I quite enjoyed the pilot, but I’ll gladly eat my hat if this is a hit. It literally has everything working against it!

  • RyanCanada

    i will be tuning in.

  • Mr X

    the pilot avilable online was awful this show is a stinker.

  • david

    I saw the pilot a couple of days ago and i thought it was a good show. I am hopeing for a 1.0 for tonight. It was interesting and i wonder what will happen next on it. I agree the CW needs to to in the Scifi and super natural type of shows direction and it looks like they are fro the pilots they are mostly working on now.

  • Olka

    I guess 0.7, but hopefully I could be wrong.
    The pilot looks nice :).

  • Mark

    .6 – and then hopefully it will hold

    I’ve seen the pilot and I like it!

  • CP

    I’m going with .7, but I’ll be watching basketball. Personally, I liked Matt Davis on Vampire Diaries and wished he was still there.

  • Chris

    I can’t believe this is finally on TV, roughly eight or nine years after Rockne O’Bannon first envisioned it.

    Unfortunately, it’s on CW, so it almost certainly sucks.

  • halloween

    pilot online already, so we can expect low ratings ;)
    .7 1.8 million…then drop

  • s0303

    i’m thinking it will start pretty good (0.7-0.8), but it’s going to fall to about 0.4 by the end of the season…

  • POIFanatic

    I’m hoping for a 1.0. As much as I like The Following, Cult is frankly as good, if not better imho.

  • Wright

    I’m gonna be optomistic and say 1.2. It has to perform better than TCD because that show is awful.Plus it has some good actors.

  • Dave S.

    I am guessing 0.5-0.6 I do like the leads but from what I have seen it is way too complex. To be honest I am not even going to try on this one. For those of you who can understand it and love it–I sincerely wish you luck. That is my guess.

    Our own Cancellation Bear will probably eat this one up after just one episode!

    To be fair, “Cult” is facing tough competition in it’s timeslot.

  • Guest

    Another flop from CW 0.7, will drop week to week.

  • The End

    Will get crushed by the competition. 1.4 million, 0.5.
