In the ratings the second season of Dynasty has been averaging a 0.17 rating in the 18-49 demo and 601,000 viewers.  Season two is down from season one by 12% in viewership and 7 % in the demo.  Because the CW has made streaming deals and internationally as well, it helps the series remain.

CW president Mark Pedowitz said in a statement: “This season, we expanded our primetime schedule to six nights with the addition of Sunday — which has been an unqualified success for the network, our affiliates and our advertisers.  In addition to growing our schedule across the week, we also continue to add more year-round programming… we look forward to building on this with even more returning and new shows as we approach the May upfront.”

I enjoy it and look forward to seeing more. I especially like seeing what they take a different turn off the original’s plot lines and make it their own.

Steve Burton chats on the craziest story he has ever played as Jason Morgan, revealing, “The one that always pops into my head is we had to go catch a monkey that had a virus, and I said to Laura (Wright) I think this is probably the end of my career today.”

The E! News special segment will show nostalgic clips from all the daytime dramas, including Luke and Laura’s wedding on GH, Marlena’s possession from DAYS, and some of Victor’s nefarious schemes from Y&R.
