The Secret Circle Is the Recently Canceled Show You'll Miss the Most

UPDATE: Surprise, surprise, The Secret Circle beat Terra Nova in our dead-to-dead competition to name the most-mourned canceled show of the 2011-2012 TV season. We've tallied all the Facebook votes, and it wasn't even close; The CW's teenage witches beat Fox's dinosaurs and silly kid storylines by a mile. Thanks to everyone who voted, and please feel free to celebrate TSC's victory in the comments.

and this result tells us what ?

That "the secret circle" fans are more "facebooked" than the "terra nova" ones

considering the audience of both shows it's not really suprising

In order ... Secret Circle, Missing, Ringer, Unforgettable, GCB, Harry's Law, Chuck, Awake, Terra Nova, Breaking In, One Tree Hill. Cannot believe the cancellations of the first 5 - especially Missing - looks like Emmy work to me.



Not the least interested in House or Alcatraz

TSC was actually quite good. I can't believe it got cancelled without even a second season. So many crap shows got way more than 2 seasons and TSC gets cancelled. What the?

No way, I can't believe they're cancelling Secret Circle!!?! It's the best new show since True Blood started - and is clearly extremely popular w viewers the world over! Don't we even get a 2nd season?? Who makes these decisions, retarded badgers with schizoid personality disorders?! Cancelling TCS is a hate crime - it's a show for intelligent people, primarily under 40, who believe in or at least accept the Old Ways and the existence of magick in the modern world; therefore cancelling a popular show that speaks to - even speaks for - this particular subset of the population is discriminatory, i.e. a hate crime! The boardroom of under-achieving orang utans who cancel our favourite shows must be brought before The ICC in the Hague for hate crimes and crimes against humanity!

Whoa! There's no need for that kind of comment. Feel free to attack TSC to your heart's content, but who the hell do you think YOU are to start attacking the other commenters? Grow up.

House is the best show on the whole list EASILY. Too many teeny boppers voting for an crap secret circle. Please grow up people. Sorry house is alot funnier and addicting then a wannabe vampire show. Vampire diaries is excellent but secret circle is too much. dumb glad it got cancelled obviously Kevin Williamson knows something.

please you grow up.. House has been going on for 8 seasons, for God's sake! it should not be on this list at all.. it is not cancelled, it is ENDED.. for good reasons.. get over it people..

House had it's moments. But it was hardly worth keeping it around for another season. And the series finale was AWFUL. Such a disappointment.
Reply

House was hilarious, but after 8 seasons it had run its course and was losing its originality.



So, the answer to the question "Which cancelled show will you miss the most?" .. I choose TSC and ... would you look at that! I'm not even a teeny-bopper. Go figure ...

Don't take it too personally....Jake has decided that anyone who likes TSC is a teenage girl. Because, you know....stereotyping is always the crutch for bitter individuals who can't make any other valid arguments.

I hate it when they cancel shows without making an ending. At least they could do an dubble-episode that connects all lose threads .. And in TSC, they freaking paved the way up for another season ..

Will definitely miss TSC the most. But it looks like a lot of the actors are now attached to new projects....which, YAY!! I love them, but BOO!! there go my hopes of another network picking up the show.

Awake deserved to be cancelled with an ending like that! I believe the writers/producers knew it would be axed so they committed the worse offense when writing a screenplay. When your Protagonist awakes to find that EVERYTHING that happened was a dream then you cheat your audience because they've become invested in your characters and a great mystery, then you says, "Oops sorry, it was ALL just a dream and didn't REALLY happen." Stupid stupid stupid!

At USC film school if we ever turned in a script like that we would have failed the course.

I'm not surprised that The Ringer got cancelled- I liked it after the premiere, but I was bored about 5 or six episodes in. Judging by the ratings, I'm not the only one who felt that way. I've heard it got better, but I suppose the damage was already done. I'm surprised The Secret Circle got cancelled though; I figured that being on right after Vampire Diaries and having the same target audience would have helped more. It was a bit melodramatic, but it stayed interesting. I hope another network picks it up.

Normally I would agree with you. A show about teenage girl witches (and on The CW, come on) is obviously made to please young girls. But whenever somebody says that, someone goes out of their way to say "But I'm not a teenager!"



Which makes me think... The Secret Circle was cancelled because... *not enough* teenage girls were watching! So it failed if its target audience didn't tune in.



By the way, what are teenagers watching then? Nickelodeon? iCarly?

in reply to the last part of your post - my daughter's 14 and watches 'the walking dead' (fave character is Glenn apparently - though I tend to prefer Daryl). She also really liked Terra Nova (was very annoyed it was cancelled). She can't stand Nickelodeon and iCarly actually. lol.

The Secret Circle was awesome. Sorry but Ringer was awful, the commercials for it made me sick.

Of course TSC wins. Mostly tweens and teens voting on Facebook, what do you expect?
Reply

Well, half of the show on the list (Terranova, Ringer, Alcatraz) were bad, and the other half concluded (DH, OTH, House, Chuck)...so? I'm a tweens, but I think that besides Awake there wasn't a show done better than TSC

Awake!!! I miss it already, that ending was a doozy, but in some ways wraps things up.

I read the premises a few comments about both shows in the final, and didn't feel like watching either. I can understand why they were cancelled.

This just proves that The CW was dumb to get rid of The Secret Circle. It just doesn't make a lot of sense to me why they cancelled it seeing as it was the second highest-rated show behind The Vampire Diaries. Bad move, CW...
Reply

actually the 2nd highest rated show behind TVD was/is Supernatural, which was on Friday. I think being behind TVD actually hurt TSC, because it was losing more than half of TVD's audience. It failed to find the audience that would make it a CW "brand"

Does anyone know what specific reason was given, if any, as to why Secret Circle was canceled??? I can't believe it cost too much to discontinue it, which i the only reason I can see. I did not keep track of ratings, but according to the season's end results, it did, on average, lose about 700,000 viewers from Vampire Diaries overall and nearly 500,000 18-49 year-olds. Those are substantial drops from their number one show. If VD couldn't retain the audience, I doubt moving it to another night would have done any better. Still, it was their second best show on average. However, you would need to know if the ratings kept dropping each week to where they may have thought it was going to eventually be bad enough to cancel anyway. Unfortunately, I do not know those weekly numbers. Based on ratings alone, I would think the show deserved a chance to continue finding an audience next season helped with rerunning it over the summer.



This, the cancellation of Unforgettable and the incredible failure of Awake are the three biggest mysteries of the season.

I think it was ratings. Unfortunately if you look at the records of ratings per episode you'll see that TSC lost more and more viewers every week . I'm not sure how this works, but I guess that since TSC was after TVD which has a big viewership (for CW standards) the executives had higher hopes and expected bigger ratings than the ones TSC got the last weeks.

I think TSC deserved another season and other night to reach its full potential, aside of a change of writers. In the end, TSC had more viewers that GG and 90210.

TSC needed better writers and more buzz.

What makes this gratifying is that TV.com is not a place that fangirls swarm to, so this isn't just a poll won over by hormones and raging ten year olds, people will genuinely miss this imperfect-yet-special gem.

Lets hope TV.com learned from this article and this will be the last time they use Facebook instead of their own website.

even if they put the poll in Mars, TSC would have won, it was the most unjust cancelling of the season.. but agree with the match ups, way too ridiculous..

Don't expect the arrogant CW brass to acknowledge this, or say anything nice about the fans, though. Kevin Williamson even had the balls to say the show (their best-rated new show, and better rated than either Hart of Dixie, the new show they renewed, or Nikita) had not "found an audience." Thousand of people sign petitions and vote in polls, only to be told we don't even exist? And then he went on to insult all the cast members but Phoebe Tonkin, by singling her out as the only person who deserves a place on The Vampire Diaries. Phoebe Tonkin deserves much better than both The Vampire Diaries and Kevin Williamson, and so do her fans. I hope she tells him to go fly a kite. There has been a notably complete absence of any reaction from the network whatsoever to the fan efforts to save the show. Their efforts to entice me to watch any of the new ones I will respond to accordingly. If they don't respect the viewers, the viewers certainly needn't respect them.
