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.

ABC Officially Picks Up ‘Roseanne’ Spinoff, ‘The Conners’ With No Roseanne Barr Participation

Word on late Thursday afternoon is that ABC has now officially moved forward and gave a pick-up to the Roseanne spinoff series, The Conners.   

As viewers know, there had been speculation that the series would revolve around Sara Gilbert’s character of Darlene, but now the other concept with the entire family in the title is the direction the new series will go (although it is said to be the “working title” of the series.)

The Conners received a ten episode order and will make the fall TV schedule, and will reside on Tuesday night’s on ABC at 8PM.

Roseanne Barr’s controversial tweets led to the network’s swift decision to cancel her series.

In the new deal, Barr will have no financial or creative involvement in The Conners after reaching a settlement with series producer, Tom Werner.

The Conners will feature the rest of the Roseanne core cast including: John Goodman, Laurie Metcalf, Sara Gilbert, Lecy Goranson, and Michael Fishman.

According to Deadline:  It is unclear how exactly Barr’s character will be written off but ABC describes it as “a sudden turn of events.”  On the new show, after a sudden turn of events, the Conners are forced to face the daily struggles of life in Lanford in a way they never have before. This iconic family – Dan, Jackie, Darlene, Becky and D.J. – grapples with parenthood, dating, an unexpected pregnancy, financial pressures, aging and in-laws in working-class America. Through it all, the fights, the coupon cutting, the hand-me-downs, the breakdowns – with love, humor and perseverance, the family prevails.

In a statement ABC commented: “The Conners’ stories demonstrate that families can always find common ground through conversation, laughter and love. The spinoff will continue to portray contemporary issues that are as relevant today as they were 30 years ago.”

A major turning point to greenlight the series came when the fact that the new series does not feature Barr’s character Roseanne Conner, which rights to which she is said to maintain, paved the way for an agreement with no Barr.

So, glad to hear The Conners will continue sans Roseanne? Comment below.
