The CW: The Vampire Diaries certain to be renewed, The Carrie Diaries likely to be cancelled

By on October 27, 2013

Other The CW Renewal and Cancellation news:


The Carrie Diaries premiered this week with a 0.3 rating. It did premiere on a Friday, but it is a low enough rating to be downgraded to a Likely Cancellation.

Hart of Dixie has been doing poorly compared to other The CW series. However, a renewal for Hart of Dixie means it’s up for syndication. Therefore, Hart of Dixie is a Certain Renewal. Arrow has been predicted a Likely Renewal, and it has been doing very well so it will remain likely to be renewed. The Vampire Diaries is currently the highest scoring scripted series on The CW, and it will therefore be upgraded to a Certain Renewal.

Reign has dropped slightly in the ratings, going from a 0.8 to a 0.6. It is at the same level as The Tomorrow People, which is a Likely Pick-Up. However, The Tomorrow People started of higher than Reign did, so Reign will remain a Toss Up for a little while longer.

This week’s TV Watch U.S. predictions for the other networks:

  • Katie

    Hart of Dixie has THE WORST ratings on network, why is it always renewed? what’s the point?

    • Robin Oatley

      Hi Katie,

      What is important to realize is that networks make money not only by selling advertisement space to companies, but also by selling their series to others, for instance basic cable channels or networks in other countries. This is called syndication. Often, 88 to 100 episodes are preferred for this, because this enables networks and cable channels to fill a few months with daily reruns. This is roughly four seasons (depending on the amount of episodes in a season). At the moment, Hart of Dixie is running its third season. Since The CW loves (the money they get from) syndication, it is almost inevitable that Hart of Dixie will get that fourth season. After all, it isn’t the first struggling series that is renewed for this purpose on The CW, just look at Nikita.
