    This show needs to be cancelled already.

    Lol we may see more seasons of beauty yet..:)

  • James

    Renewed with a 0.4 rating and barely one million viewers. Interesting.
    Perhaps The Carrie Diaries could survive with similar numbers on Fridays.

  • Michael

    Surprised, it took the network this long to confirm it. The producers have been advertising season 21 and giving details pertaining auditions for weeks now!

  • CW = Can’t Win

    That’ll turn the network around!

  • John A

    It should air on a week day like Monday in summer. It would get like a 0.6 and that would be decent.

  • Remote Patrolled

    Hadn’t watched Top Model for the last few seasons but Guys Vs Girls has been a great season – really freshened up the franchise!


    come on guys, it’s the cw…summer…friday…0.4?? it’s ok for renewal, and it’s been a great season

  • Charmed

    @James I sure hope so! I actually think The Carrie Diaries can get decent ratings on Friday, IMO Monday is a much tougher night

  • DenverDean

    It’s a Friday show, super-cheap – not sure why anyone is surprised.

  • Ronald

    Im glad the show is getting a new season! this cycle has been really great so far, lets hope TCD perform well when it returns

  • Adir

    Bring back 90210 on 8 oclock and you get better raitings !! You dident wrong with 90210 cancelletion !! Its a sheme!

  • Steve A

    The last vestige of the UPN hangs on

  • dantas


    you are kidding, right?

    90210 had many 0.2s and 0.3s without being on friday. It was SHAMEFULL.

  • The One

    I’m glad bc the new guys and girl thingy reinvigorated the show and it’s soo much better to watch than the last couple of years. Also, it does better than the Beauty flop whatever on Fridays, it’s super cheap to produce and sells incredibly well overseas. The online viewing is also impressing too. I’m happy!

  • Shepherd

    I’m disappointed that they didn’t give a start date, but I’m not surprised at all. I figure they are waiting until after they make renewal/ cancellation decisions on their dramas before deciding where to ‘fill in’ with ANTM.

  • Alan

    Not that really shocking since they started casting for Cycle 21 some weeks ago!

  • Evan

    ANTM should move to Mondays during January. Its mondays with Hart of Dixie and BATB is doing absolutely dreadful. ANTM is getting better ratings while being on a Friday. They should put ANTM on at 8 on Mondays and Hart of Dixie at 9 and then just either burn off BATB on fridays or just cancel it. I feel like ANTM would at least get a .5-.6 on Monday’s which wouldn’t be too good but it would be way better than what either show is doing now.
