Three shows on The CW aren’t getting great ratings and at least one of them will likely be canceled before the end of the season.
Jane the Virgin, which airs on Monday nights; The 100, which airs on Wednesday nights; and Reign, which airs on Thursday nights are the three programs.
Zap2It, which analyzes ratings and other information, says that the ratings trend for Jane the Virgin in particular is pretty rough.
“After beginning with a ‘pretty good for CW Monday’ 0.6 adults 18-49 rating, its second week fell to a 0.5, and its third week to a 0.4.” The fourth episode on November 3 stayed at 0.4 million.
Overall, the show has fallen from 1.6 million viewers to 1 million.
Zap2It says that it would already have labeled Jane the Virgin “likely canceled” if it weren’t for some type of deal that The CW seems to have with CBS Studios.
“Another low rated CW show, Reign, is also produced by CBS, as is the inexplicably renewed for season 3 Beauty And The Beast. Is there a minimum number of CBS shows that the CW required to keep on its air?” it said.
Reign dropped to 1.3 million overall viewers and 0.4 million in the 18-49 demographic last episode and is averaging 1.2 million and 0.4 million this season.
That’s a dip from last season, when it averaged 1.6 million and 0.6 million.
Out of all three shows, The 100 looks to have the best chance of getting a renewal based on ratings. Although it only has 1.6 million overall and 0.5 million in the key demographic, it actually drew more viewers in episode 3 than its season premiere.
That’s still down from 1.85 million and 0.6 million in season 1, though.
For now, all three shows are fairly early in their seasons but all three will be closely watched as analysts and fans try to figure out which ones will be canceled and which ones will get renewed.
And all the other CW shows look pretty good for now.
