Since we wrote about the massive gain posted by “The Secret Circle” last week in DVR viewing when it came to its 18-49 numbers, we thought it suitable to have one more update for its season (and likely series) finale that aired on May 10.
In new numbers released today (via TVbythenumbers), we actually have a shocker — the “Circle” is nowhere in the top 25 when it comes to percentage gains. This is even more shocking when you remember that the last time these numbers were posted, the show gained more in this same measure than any other show on television.
So what happened? The real answers seems to be that many people chose to watch live thanks to it being the finale — and when the show was canceled the next day, people opted to delete it from their DVRs rather than continuing to invest in a show with little chance at a future. (The DVR numbers are for the seven days following the show’s initial airing.)
When it comes to another supernatural series, though, the news is better for “Grimm” — who once again rose to the top of the chart in gaining over 91% of its audience thanks to DVR viewing, which allowed it to finish with a 2.3 rating rather than a 1.2. (NBC has already started production on a second season.)
Are you surprised to see the “Circle” pretty much nonexistent in this week’s chart?
