The second season of “Scream” has creatively shown itself to be just about everything that we would want from it. It is intense, fun at times, but also incredibly creepy at others. It may not have the buzz of many of the feature films, but we do at least think that it has embodied some of the spirit.
So is there a chance that it could find a way to keep that spirit going for at least one more year? For now, we have to say that we’re not completely optimistic based on at least the live+same day numbers. This past episode barely mustered a 0.2 rating in the 18-49 demographic, which also has to be right around where the show is averaging for the season. Ratings are down more than 40% from season 1 in the demo, and you cannot really blame the later timeslot anymore for it.
So what can the show do to stick around? It’s mostly as simple as fighting for it, convincing some of your friends to watch, or just building up even more of a social platform for it. The little things sometimes can make a big difference, and while we’re not altogether optimistic about the show’s chances, there are certainly crazier things that we’ve had a chance to see happen over the course of the past several years on TV.
We will keep watch on the ratings over the upcoming weeks, mostly to see if there are changes as we near the finale. If there was a time for the show to try and step it up, this would be it!
