The CW’s Ringer which stars Sarah Michelle Gellar wrapped up its first season last April 17, 2012. The first season finale received a gloomy 0.6 ratio of 18-49 average adult rating. This number was a big contrast compared to the pilot episode which drew 2.84 million viewers, a 1.2 Adults 18-49 demo rating and a 1.6 in The CW’s target demo of Women 18-34. The ratings reached a three-year high for The CW in the Tuesday 9:00pm time slot.
With that big number of difference, can we still expect the CW to give a chance for Ringer season 2?
Here’s what we’ve rounded up exclusively for you:
If you’re a big supporter of this show, I’m going to try and be kind as much as I possibly can in breaking the news.
The Ringer which began with quite the good numbers on CW is now facing a “more likely to be cancelled than renewed” prediction from TV by the numbers on its April 10th ratings board. Now I know that that’s the last thing you ever want to hear as a fan — but to support these conjectures, I did further research.
My research concluded with a thought in my head that the series did not have the consistent and solid storyline. There had been quite a few written blogs that gave the show displeasing comments but only pointing to one major observation, and that is “the series had a lot of unfinished conflicts”. Media predict criticized the show leaving a statement of ” One of the most buzzed-about shows last summer, “Ringer” reunited Sarah Michelle Gellar and “Buffy” creator Joss Whedon in another serial thriller. But unfortunately no one could tell what the show was about”.
Hitflix also remarked that “Ringer didn’t live up to its end of the deal by gracefully finessing the finale into a series finale”.
I hope that based on that two quoted comments, you already deciphered what they mean. Like I said, the writers failed to create a material that might bring the show’s storyline into full circle.
Although much has been said, there’s not much left to do. The ratings don’t lie as well as the people who first believed on the series. However, no official announcements have been made yet about the cancellation. The CW has currently only renewed Vampire Diaries, 90210 and Supernatural.
There you have it, I hope I was gentle enough. For more updates, please feel free to check the site regularly. You’ll never know the possibilities. We welcome your thoughts too — just hit our comment box below!
