The CW’s “Star-Crossed” Ratings Sink in Week Two

By  | 

Update: Monday’s “Star-Crossed” posted a paltry 0.3 adults 18-49 rating with 1.13 million viewers.

Both numbers were down from those posted by last week’s premiere.

Sometimes the normal is more haunting than the abnormal.

And after competing against its regular timeslot rivals in NBC’s “The Voice” and CBS’ “How I Met Your Mother,” The CW’s “Star-Crossed” likely wishes it only had to deal with the Winter Olympics.

Monday’s “Star-Crossed” posted a mere 0.8 overnight metered market rating. Down from the already disappointing 1.1 delivered by last week’s premiere, the number does not offer any optimism regarding the show’s long-term prospects.

With “The 100″ set to launch next month, “Star-Crossed” represents the fourth of The CW’s new drama entries for 2013-14. It is, thus far, the coldest of those four launches.

        What needs to be done is getting others watching it; I’ve been inviting people to like their page on Facebook. Which normally leads them to at least checking the show out, and I think if you choose people wisely you’ll help the show gain momentum. Basically I invite people who enjoy this genre, which is what’s needed, the more interest the better. You invite a few people and hopefully they invite more people, I really enjoy this show to and I’m worried it’ll get canceled before it even has a chance to succeed.

  • Yes ok!

    I’m so tired of getting attached to shows and the CW cancelling them. How are they supposed to get any viewers if they can’t even complete more than one season. I really like this show and I want it to have multiple seasons!

    The show was much better when it was called “Roswell.”

    I think the biggest problem with SC is that the fans that actually watch CW know if they watch this show it will put their favorites in jeopardy. Fans also know that only a certain amount of shows will get an another season which is why TTP and BATB fans have boycott this show. This show preimered lower then any other cw show which was the first sign this show wasn’t going to do well. The CW actually created this problem by making it know only a certain amount will be renewed so if you are a fan of TCD, TTP, BATB, HD and you want another season then there only recourse is to not watch this show

    I for one am glad it is getting cancelled. If I wanted to watch a show about a bunch of people coming to America illegally and then demanding to be treated as if they were invited I would watch the news… I would rather they open the time slot to something entertaining.

    Look what this show is up against. And they r disappointed by the #s?? Really? Start looking at the dvr+7 and they numbers always go up yet it is sure to be cancelled? Move it to another night and at least give it a chance. It has the freshest story line out there. Renew it n change the time slot and ill bet it does amazing. But of course its too easy for the cw to cancel.

    They need to broaden their audience pool by hitting on subjects that are more current then the ones they’re taking up. Personally I think Drake would make a great non-stereotypical gay lead, that would draw the support of millions. There’s so much untapped potential in this show and I truly hope it succeeds regardless, still I think it would help.

    I wonder if this show would do better on a different night….I don’t watch this show on my TV…I watch it a day later on hulu…

    Star Crossed has a similar premise to Roswell but that is where the similarity ends. I prefer Star Crossed after only a few episodes.
