13 May 11th, 2012 Sarah Michelle Gellar’s Series RINGER is Canceled by the CW!


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,  “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…


  2. Katie says:

    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?


  3. Katie says:

    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.

    Very sad to see that Ringer was cancelled!!! :( Looked forward to it every week. Very disappointed that Awake and Alcatraz were not renewed as well. I really liked all of these shows!!!

    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.

    I had heard it was on the chopping block and now it’s confirmed…..
    so sad ,I looked forward to Ringer every week. :(


  6. Tom says:

    I have to admit I gave up on this one 3/4 of the way through the season.


  7. Anne hayes says:

    Ringer was a great show! How sad that it was cancelled


  8. Dmitri says:

    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.


  9. Scott says:

    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.


  10. Patricia says:

    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?


  11. Kathleen says:

    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.
