    HoD renewed!! YEAHHHHH
    I’m happy for BATB and for the fans but still hope that Nikita will be renewed (and TCD maybe but I don’t think so sadly!)

  • Freyja

    I am betting for Nikita, it’s a contract issue about how many episodes to give them.

    Don’t worry Nikita will get renewed, I am positive of it.

    B&TB is probably cheaper to produce and it’s an in house CBS project.

  • Michael

    Interesting to see how the crappy originals will do in the fall season!

  • Charmed

    I suppose that just because it didnt get an early renewal doesn’t mean TCD won’t be back in some form. Nikita wasn’t renewed, but we all know it will be.

  • Beastie

    ?????? I am quite afraid that this is not true. I have never heard for sure that BatB was being renwed. I dont want to get my hopes up.
    BTW I LOVE BatB

    No Cult?
    I guess its true that Beauty and Beast must be cheap to produce, cause its ratings stink

    @Charmed,

    I suppose that just because it didnt get an early renewal doesn’t mean TCD won’t be back in some form.

    No, it’s low ratings (even for the CW) mean that it won’t be back.

  • Donj1973

    If ant of you read the Deadline article, The CW has very rich streaming deals with Netflix and Hulu for their shows. Those are making them alot of money and they don’t heavily weigh on overnight ratings.

    Expect Beauty and the Beast to appear on Netflix sometime this summer.

  • Valentin

    @Beastie Go watch on CW official Twitter account and BATB Writers account and CBS account! It’s official!

    @DW
    That’s why they wouldn’t move it to Friday’s, it’s been there already and it’s doing much better where it is now. Why would they move it?

  • Phill

    dixie!!!!!!!! yes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • harry

    Beauty and the beast renewed but it will have a change of timeslot, i think the originals will take its place unless they re too certain about the originals success and they move it to mondays 8 pm or something.

    Yeah, me too. I’ve thought for a couple weeks now that it’s possible we’ll get a 13 episode order instead of the full 22. They might be haggling over that now. 13 brings it to 80 which is certainly good enough for syndication. I hope there’s an option for a back-9 though if that’s the path they choose. It’s not likely anything else could thrive on Fridays for the foreseeable future.

    B&TB is probably cheaper to produce and it’s an in house CBS project.

    As I understand it, it’s the last CBS project on the air right now. The CW is a joint venture between CBS and WB. No reason to clear house of all CBS productions (not counting pilots) when there are other factors (international sales, streaming, Canadian tax breaks, etc.) in play.

    I prefer not to handle my brain cells, but hopefully this will quiet the people harping on Revolution for losing most of The Voice demo.

  • Claudia

    looooooooooooooooolllllllllllllllllll FOR ALL THE HATERS IN THIS SITE….WE GOT RENEWED THE LITTLE SHOW THAT COULD AND NO ONE “SEEMED”TO LIKE WE GOT RENEWED…….THIS IS FOR THE DEATH TO BATB HATER….LOL awwww but out of your misery I really hope Nikita gets renewed for 12 episodes at least!

  • JJA

    @haloween–BATB is not at all cheap to produce (relatively speaking), so it must be making money for someone somewhere.

    Also, I remember a few years back when Smallville was renewed for its 10th and final season, it was the last show to be renewed AND had its own announcement. Same thing for Gossip Girl last year. So, I’m betting the same will apply for Nikita this year–I hope!

  • chrys

    Nikita got a late renewal for this past season, didn’t it? Maybe same thing this year…

  • David

    Well all that’s left for the CW is to announce TCD’s cancellation and Nikita’s renewal. Now on to next season! What pilots do you think will join The Originals? I think The Tomorrow People is likely as it has the same team behind it as TVD. Other safe bets would be Oxygen, The Selction and The Hundred?

  • David

    *selection

    These renewals are official. The Hollywood Reporter has quotes from Pedowitz.

    Cass: “You’re better than this.”

    No, I’m not.

    I’ve been ticked off too much by these beastie clowns. I had to suffer through that crap over Fringe and I had to suffer all these Nikita haters all this season.

    So screw ‘em. Morons get what they deserve – and sometimes what they don’t, like the BATB renewal. :-)

    DEATH TO BATB!

    Oh, and DEATH TO REVOLUTION!, too! :-)
