Ringer’s lost its appeal and The Secret Circle’s magic is gone. Both dramas have been canceled by The CW. Unfortunately, Sarah Michelle Gellar’s return to television was short-lived. Neither show will be back for a second season.
Sarah Michelle Gellar‘s Ringer and the supernatural Secret Circle were canceled. We’re not shocked by Ringer’s fate considering the show averaged a mere 1.8 million viewers and a 0.8 demo rating. That’s disappointing, even by CW standards. Despite its intriguing premise and plot twists, it wasn’t enough to get the numbers up.
On the other hand, The Secret Circle is more of a shock. It had a prime lead-in with The Vampire Diaries (the CW’s highest-rated show) and averaged 2 million viewers a week. That’s more than both Nikita (1.8 million) and Hart of Dixie, whose latest episode only drew 1.3 million.
Just yesterday, The CW aired the season (now series) finale of The Secret Circle, which ended with several cliffhangers. Ringer‘s finale, which debuted last month, was also open-ended leaving viewers in limbo.
To date, The CW has renewed 90210, Supernatural, The Vampire Diaries, America’s Next Top Model, plus the aforementioned Gossip Girl, Hart of Dixie and Nikita.
