    Good for the CW, they needed this. They had a great night yesterday with Arrow and SPN hitting 1.0. If BatB ratings hold, they could have another good night. I don’t watch the show, but I hope the ratings for it stay up so the CW has a show that can get decent ratings (other than the top three, which are doing great).

    The bear can predict TV renewals and cancellations. Predicting CW press releases, not so much.

    Once again, why are people shocked when TVD beats NBC in the demo? Lol. This isn’t the first time, nor the last.

  • Solelle

    Is this little hail mary BATB pulled off the nail in TCD coffin?

  • Wright

    Great for both shows!!!!

  • Jared

    Im LOVING BATB. I hope the ratings momentum continues until the finale.

    And this is why CW ratings are fun to watch. Show ratings get really crazy and unpredictable in the spring.

    Vd has been consistently stable all season and beating abc and nbc original eps of comedy shows and drama last resort. The schedule for next season should be real interesting come upfronts time in may!!!

    About time we saw something positive on Beauty and the Beast. This show is terrific. I can’t understand why it’s taken so long for so many people to realize this. The fans know Beauty and the Beast is the best show on TV these days.

    Will love this show till thee end. Please bring back Superman in some way.
