We know this will not sit well with many of our soapers, who have posted at On-Air On-Soaps how much they love and enjoy the CW soapy drama, Ringer, starring former All My Children alum, Sarah Michelle Gellar.  And while word on the street was that the CW might be the fence if the series would get picked-up for another season, a final decision was handed down today that sealed its fate.

According to EW.com,  “Despite considerable publicity thanks to the return of Sarah Michelle Gellar to TV, Ringer fell steadily after its premiere and averaged only 1.8 million viewers and a 0.8 rating for the season.  The show’s cancellation was expected.”

So while Ringer and Secret Circle bit the dust at the CW, Hart of Dixie, Gossip Girl and Nikita all got their renewals! So what do you think of the cancellation of Ringer?   Let us know!

I still can not believe they canceled this show an The Secret Circle! I saw the list of Canceled shows so far it’s like everything on TV. Soon nothing good would be on… Maybe if they did not take shows off the air for weeks/months they would have viewers. I hope another network picks them up soon…

Here is what I don’t understand GG gets about 600,000 viewers why did they bother bringing it back for even just 10 episodes? Why did Nikita which averages a 0.6 score a renewal over The Secret Circle which averaged a 0.9?

Both Ringer and The Secret Circle were doing good ratings wise until the month (or was it two month?) long breaks. To be honest I’ll probably just start watching cable shows now speaking of which TNT picked up Cougar Town maybe GCB or Secret Circle can get picked up by a cable network.

I’m also disappointed that alcatraz was not renewed, there was a lot of story telling that could have gone on for seasons ,I don’t think fox gave it a fair chance. It was a very interesting show. also there are only 2 episodes left of house, there goes my mondays nothing left for me to watch.

Glad Hart of Dixie was renewed, but sad about the cancellation of TSC! It was getting good after a few slow, predictable stories. Nikita should have ended instead. As for GG, it has been so boring lately, but hopefully shorter season 6 (the last season) will be better.

BIG MISTAKE BY THE CW! “Ringer” was their best series ever, plus their best series in the 2011-12 TV season. They really screwed this one up. Their worst decision since becoming a network.

Hope another station picks up the series.

I don’t understand why cw would let a great show like Ringer , secert circle are cancelled . these were good shows, and I hope that another network will pick them up. I remember when the hit show Jag was taken off after one season and then it was picked up by another network and it lasted ten seasons.What were you thinking CW?

I don’t really know if these comments are read, but if CW will not renew Ringer, I would hope another network picks it up. This drama definitely needs a second season as anyone who has been following the series knows it left us in a cliffhanger that needs to be continued. Hoping to see the return of Sarah and Ringer! Please don’t disappoint your fans.

Anne Heche ‘Not Expected to Survive’; Suffered Severe Brain Injury From Fiery Crash

In just heartbreaking news, Daytime Emmy-winner, Anne Heche (Ex-Vicky/Marley, Another World), is not expected to survive after days in the hospital following being severely burned in a fiery car crash when her vehicle struck a home in Mar Vista, California last Friday.

According to family and friends of the motion picture and television star in a statement, “Unfortunately, due to her accident, Anne Heche suffered a severe anoxic brain injury and remains in a coma, in critical condition. She is not expected to survive. It has long been her choice to donate her organs and she is being kept on life support to determine if any are viable.”  Deadline notes, the actress will be taken off life-support.

The statement went on to say, “We want to thank everyone for their kind wishes and prayers for Anne’s recovery and thank the dedicated staff and wonderful nurses that cared for Anne at the Grossman Burn Center at West Hills hospital.  More than her extraordinary talent, she saw spreading kindness and joy as her life’s work — especially moving the needle for acceptance of who you love. She will be remembered for her courageous honesty and dearly missed for her light.”

There are plans for Heche to get an Honor Walk, which is a hero’s goodbye donor patients receive by hospital staff as they are wheeled into the operating room in their final journey.

Heche will be featured on Lifetime’s Girl in Room 13, set to premiere this fall in September. Lifetime’s Executive VP  and head of programming, Amy Winter, revealed earlier this week at the TCA press tour, “As many of you know, Anne remains in critical condition and all of us here at Lifetime are deeply concerned for her and everyone affected. This project is important to Anne, along with each and every one of us. We all sought to make a film that would bring attention to this appalling issue of human sex trafficking.”

In addition, TMZ had reported that following toxicology reports, Cocaine was found in Heche’s system following the crash. They also found fentanyl. However,  sources say fentanyl can often be used as a pain medication in hospitals, so there is no confirmation that it was in Anne’s system at the time of the crash.

Anne was an amazing actress with such a tortured life.  We send thoughts and prayers to all her loved ones during this difficult time.  Share your thoughts on the latest update on Anne in the comment section below.
