The CW Pushes Cult to Friday Nights

by at . Comments

Let the talk of Matt Davis somehow returning to The Vampire Diaries begin.

Following back to back episodes that each failed to garner one million viewers, Cult has been pushed to Friday nights by The CW. It's final episodes will be burned off then at 9 p.m., starting on March 8.

In the show's previous time slot, the network will air encore episodes of various programs, beginning on March 5 with Beauty and the Beast.

Cult premiered to just 860,000 viewers and a 0.3 demographic rating on February 19. Its second installment failed to improve on those numbers in any noticeable fashion.

This show has such an interesting plot and set of characters. It's real unfortunate if this new timeslot doesn't save it. Cult could've been something great but airing it on tuesdays was a big mistake and it does have big competition. With Cult I think the problem is that there is already so much crime shows that don't have the same idea yet share same sort of dark themes. And of course the biggest competition is The Following and Kevin Bacon. I think the same thing is happening with Cult as with Ringer. Ringer came out the wrong time, starting same year with Revenge and Revenge totally killed Ringer. Hopefully CW will at least give us enough episodes to get all the answers IF Cult doesn't make it otherwise.

Airing it after TVD, whilst moving BATB would have been a better move. Would have given this show a chance and a decision as to whether or not the fans would follow BATB IF it were to be renewed for a second season and given a new time slot. It's quite sad that fans have way better ideas than the people who make the decisions... at least at CW.

Well that sucks! Personally I really like this show.
I am a Matt Davis fan but have read several time he is very opinionated and a recent article Matt himself said he was not happy with where Julie took Alaric's character on the TVD for a long time and he wanted to get off the show for a long long time. So personally I do not think he will appear on TVD again BUT if he does,there is not much his character can do, unless the whole raising Silas happens and all the dead come back to like BUT I do not see that happening either.

OK, we all know that this means that this show is as good as canceled, the only thing missing is the official announcement from the network. Let's focus on how to bring back Matt Davis to TVD. Bonnie could resurrect him or something? That would be the best use of her witchy-powers within 4 seasons of this show. And Alaric could tell us interesting stories about the life on the other side... Can we file a petition or something?

Cult is only a hit within the show...This show was pretty much a goner since the premiere of The Following...similar concept..plus The Following as frigging Kevin Bacon!!

I like the show its just I can't watch it when it's on because I have other shows like ncis, ncis la, and pretty little liars.
