“We said last year that one of our goals was to establish building blocks to grow on, and now with our new hit Arrow and fan favorite Supernatural on Wednesday night, and the continued success of The Vampire Diaries on Thursday, we’ve been able to do that,” network president Mark Pedowitz said in a statement. “Not only do Arrow, Supernatural and The Vampire Diaries perform well on-air, they’re also extremely successful for us both digitally and socially. I’m thrilled to have all three shows returning to our schedule next season.”

  6. Tonya says:

    Well, it looks like I need to start watching Arrow. I’ve been meaning to watch Supernatural for a long time. I started out watching TVD and then missed some shows and go so behind that I quit watching it. I’ll have to take an offseason and catch up. My favorites of the remaining are Hart of Dixie and Beauty and the Beast.

  7. Jason says:

    Yay for TVD!! i LOVE this show!

  8. pinetree3 says:

    Fantastic news about Supernatural!

  9. Eric says:

    Beauty and The Beast better get renewed!! Yay for Supernatural!

  10. saba says:

    i think nikita deserves to be renewed, it’s an amazing show and gets better with each episode, and it never get the credit it deserves.

  11. Hibsta says:

    Fantastic news. Arrow is an incredible show, this coming from someone who faithfully watches Breaking Bad and Walking Dead

  12. pink says:

    I picked B &TB because it still has potential.I would have picked Nikita but S3 so far is AWFUL and they had their “Jump The Shark” moment when Nikita cut Micheal’s hand off and they are now trying to “regrow” it.This is just stupid.If S3 is this stupid because the writers can’t write,how awful will S4 be if it gets picked up?I say let it go now before it gets any dumber.

  13. AT says:

    I think BATB is the most worthy of a renewal. I think creatively it has the most potential moving forward as a series. They’re bringing in new actors to the series soon who are really talented which will bring new life into the show. I think the series in a way is still finding their footing, but I believe they’ll find it. Over the summer they have the chance to get more viewers. I think Nikita is a fantastic show, and would love to see season 4, BUT I could also see based on story lines how it would be possible to end the show by season’s end. Same with Hart of Dixie. It’s a cute show, but they’ve already gotten Wade and Zoe together. Now there seems to be a bit of a slump on the show that you would expect on a series around season 5 or 6. They’ve made it less about quirky people in the town and more about who will sleep with who next. Personally, I liked the second half of season one better. The love triangle was believable. Now, it’s become kind of contrived IMO. Anyway, they had the chance this season to pick up the series and get better ratings. They haven’t. So wouldn’t picking it up for a third season mean they’ll probably have to commit to a fourth? As much as I’ve enjoyed the show, they could easily come up with an ending for the show by season’s end, since they are already in a place a lot of shows would be in season 4 or 5. 90210 does not deserve any kind of pickup. Today it’s even down to a .3. No one is watching it and deservedly so. It’s horrendous. They can write an ending by season’s end. That is all. As for The Carrie Diaries, I think it should also go. It just feels like a show that would have done well a few years ago. Besides, based on the new pilots being made, the network seems like it’s going in a more genre driven direction, so…Personally I say renew BATB, and possibly Nikita, and do a clean sweep of the rest of the shows (while telling the writers in advance to give each of the shows a fitting end).

  14. Beth says:

    Nikita better get renewed it’s the best show on Fridays. The CW line up is so weak as it is. ARROW is the best show on the network then NIkita. Vampire Diaries totally jumped the shark this season. Elena is so annoying I’d like to stake her myself.

    • Kate75 says:

      I so agree with you Beth, Elena is so annoying this season, I have lost faith in the show. Which is a shame, because it started as a good show in season 1 and 2.

  15. Zadefan says:

    I need Hart of Dixie Season 3! I really hope that we will get good news soon….

  16. jasonwang says:

    NIKITA come on!

  17. loonie says:

    I do watch 90210, but I’m not gonna vote. Just let this be the final season, I’m already tired with all the storylines and their so called SPECIAL (but actually USELESS) Guest Celebrities and concerts every week. Same old crap.

  18. Well Although this maybe completely off topic but what I Really Really Really wanna see come back For The 11th Season Is Smallville Or At Lease A Different Name But Same Characters Now That Would Be The Best TV Series To Return Specially With All The Young People Just Now Starting To Watch It I Watched It About 5 Times Already And Could Watch It Again.. My 2 Kids (3&5) Freaking Love It Just Finished It And They Said It Cant End Like That We Wanna See Him Fly LOL Little Did They Know The Series Has Ended And Green Arrow Has Picked Up Love That Show Can’t Wait Til It Airs And Vampire Diaries, & Of Course Heart Of Dixie My Favorites..

  19. Candice says:

    Yay for Arrow. I also watch Nikita, HoD, & Beauty and the Beast. If only one can get renewed I hope it’s Hart of Dixie.

  20. Miriam says:

    please beauty and the beast season 2

  21. Kate says:

    Beauty and the Beast, man I love that show

  22. Vic says:

    These 3 shows are by far the best on CW at the time, though Supernatural is simply the best))

  23. Esperanza says:

    Go Hart of Dixie!!

  24. TraitorRogue says:

    Nice! I can see arrow here!! By the way, I agree that Nikita is much better than TVD(though I like Stefan very much ) .as u know,there are plenty of fans are looking forward to watching season4 of Nikita .nothing is more important for us than to wait for Nikki . And now, we are counting on CW. So please just give Nikita a chance. (^O^)/an audience from Peking .

  25. Cinderella says:

    Why the hell is NIKITA’s mark lower and lower guys?It used to be No.2 and the number is about to get 26 percent, but look at the chart now! What happened? Did someone hacked the damn website or something like that?! NIKITA is a great TV series, if you watch it, you’ll know, it’s worth renewing.

    • sharonchou says:

      I have the same idea. I kept voting and kept seeing the numbering felling. I have no idea what’s happened. So just let me know that whether I vote for the wrong episode???

  26. ddd8167300ttt says:

    Nikita ! Yeah! Nikita ! Yeah! Nikita ! Yeah!
    I love Nikita ! Yeah!

  27. sharonchou says:

    你们好,我是尼基塔的中国粉丝。Hi, I am NIKITA fanz from china. There are huge amount of NIKITA fanz in china who don’t really know the renewal rules for America tv series. So they won’t have opportunity to vote or comment for their favorite episode. But I want all you guys know that NIKITA worth being renewed cause they have the most beneficial market in the world – china. And none of them has this kind of rewardinglike this before. Nikita is our love is also because we love this kind of theme but there is never this kinds of TV appeared in china. We love it because we love the director the writer and every actors are the perfect of the perfect! Just give a chance to NIKITA and Chinese fans will never let you down!
    Fight for NIKITA!!!

  28. sharonchou says:

    Chance for Nikita! Please CW!

  29. Sharonchou says:

    Why I keep voting for Nikita be the hart of Dixie keep raising ??? Is there any problem for the damn website?

  30. Ellen says:

    Give Hart of Dixie a 3rd season! It’s my favorite show by far. It’s different and fun and has the best cast. And I need to see some George and Zoe. So GO HART OF DIXIE!

  31. Love Nikita!
    I’m really wanna see the next season through The CW.

  32. joe says:

    Please renew Nikita. CW, the huge overseas market is a factor.

  33. inge says:

    BATB for season 2, pleasee, I love Arrow too season 2, yay!

  34. lily says:

    love nikita,look forward to next plot.

  35. Jessica Wang says:


  36. tillMay says:

    I hope Beauty and the Beast will be canceled, it is worse then The Secret Circle. It’s an old story and there’re too many old classical stories as tv series and movies, it’s not a new surprising story. The Secret Circle was amazing, different from all the other tv shows, CW need a Witch story since Charmed and when CW canceled TSC it did the biggest mistake he could. CW canceled the best tv show with TVD without really explanations, it’s the worst thing they could do against fans. They lost all my faith.
    Happy only for TVD, Arrow and Supernatural, hope The Carrie Diaries will be renewed and Beauty and the Beast canceled ’cause its audience is worse then The Secret Circle.
    Without faith anymore, Italy.

    • Claudia Keller says:

      LOL BATB is worst than the secret circle? but you have never watched BATB and because of your comment we all know you loved TSC, so your comment is pointless here :/

  37. Thalia says:

    I loooove NIKITA

  38. Thalia says:

    I was into TVD, but season4 is plain boring, Elena is so annoying and she is always like”r u ok”or”Stefan, we need to talk”, she was someone who has no idea of people’s feeling. Stefa is not gonna be ok if they just talk. And I hate her sort of innocent expression. Damon may be great, but Elena is ruining the show.

  39. Leslieve says:

    All I want to see is Nikita!

  40. Mikita says:

    We believe in Nikita!

  41. hehonghu says:

    i love nikita……….come on

  42. Cori says:

    Oh please, please, please keep Hart of Dixie going!!
    Love that show and Arrow too!!

  43. Dulci says:

    I think HOD fans and BATB fans should team up and watch each others shows. Looks like you are about evenly split in the comments. I hate to see any devoted fan lose their show, so why not help each other out. You win, they win and the CW gets bigger audiences for both. I think Nikita will get a renewal because it is so close to syndication. Happy for Arrow and TVD.

  44. Tracie says:

    Nikita is a given to get renewed for syndication purposes and its ratings for being on Friday and for the CW warrant a renewal.

    I only watch Arrow, Hart of Dixie, and The Carrie Diaries so that is where my interest lies. Arrow was unsurprisingly is already renewed. And out of HoD and TCD my investment is in HoD. I’ve spent 1 1/2 seasons watching the zany characters of BlueBell and I find that I want more. This show really is a bright spot in the week and helps add a bit of variety to both the CW and the line up of shows that are currently on that I watch. TV is filled with so many procedurals, drama soaps, and scifi/fantasy/supernatural shows that HoD is actually unique in what type of show it is. It is a show that makes me laugh and smile and has turned into a must see show for me each week which surprised me last season. And I’m finding that just like last season if it wasn’t renewed this is the show that I would miss the most out of all the shows that I watch. And seriously I can’t get enough of Zoe and Wade.

    And for a show that gets no promo and goes up against tough competition, it is holding its own despite the low ratings which are basically on par with the other bubble shows on the CW. It has proven to have a small but very loyal following that has kept the ratings stable since last season.

  45. Elena says:

    Hart of Dixie!!I love them so much.!

  46. Andrew Hart says:

    All they need to do now is renew Beauty and the Beast and Nikita and I will be good. I don’t care for the other shows.

  47. Claudia Keller says:

    BATB, is the next to be renewed, I love Nikita too, but If I have to choose I have enough Nikita episodes and I need more BATB episodes to go back and forth :)

  48. Molly says:

    Nikita, please
