UPDATE: Hart of Dixie is now predicted as ‘a sure thing’ for season 3!
We’ve rounded-up the show’s chances of being renewed or junked for the 2013-2014 fall lineup. Here are the facts:
Hart of Dixie opened season 2 with an unimpressive premiere, it drew 1.54 million total viewers and a 0.7 rating. The episodes that followed garnered weak numbers as well, vacillating in between 0.5 and 0.6 percent in ratings until the last aired episode on its Tuesday 8pm berth on the CW.
As far as TV competition goes, HOD has been playing with the big guys. It is going against NCIS and Raising Hope every Tuesday night on CBS and FOX respectively. With these two huge performers going head-to-head each week, it’s not too surprising that Hart of Dixie is being outnumbered. Hence, the weak ratings. The show is hovering in between cancellation or renewal for season 3.
Despite the show’s remarkable fan base, one of the most talked about on our site actually — we’re still worried about its sustainability. Thus far, the CW network has only picked-up three series for the fall lineup this year — Supernatural, The Vampire Diaries and Arrow.
Do you think Hart of Dixie deserves to get a renewal?
