Sarah Michelle Gellar's 'Ringer' gets full season


Image Credit: CW

SMG is going the distance!

The CW just gave Ringer a full-season order, sources say. The move comes on the heels of Ringer moving up a tick in the ratings Tuesday night for the first time, delivering 1.7 million viewers and a 0.8 in the adult demo. We’re also hearing the Ringer season finale will reveal Gellar’s character is a triplet.*

Ringer is the first new fall drama to score its “back nine” episodes. Fox’s New Girl, NBC’s Up All Night and Whitney, and CBS’ 2 Broke Girls have also landed full-season orders so far. Keep up with all the latest fall TV breaking news, follow me on Twitter here.

Hope it can keep it up!BTW,I wanna share a good news to you.My best friend ,she just has announced her wedding with a millionaire man who is a celebrity !they met via Millionaireloving.C óM is the largest and best club for celebrity and their admirers to chat online.You do not have to be rich or famous. ,but you can meet one , It’s worthy a try,Maybe you wanna check it out or tell your friends!

      Me, too. I believe the ratings also went up for the 3rd episode, though. I don’t think this article is correct about last night being the first time ratings improved. I’m pretty certain the Sept. 27 episode had nearly 2 million viewers, which is pretty good for The CW.

      My best friend has just announced her wedding with a great man who is a cele+brity!
      They met-via { millionaireluv^С^σ^м }
      It is nice club for rich men or pretty girls mate.
      You do not need to be wealthy or famous, but you can meet your true love, it’s worthy a try.

  • Brian K

    Eh. Revenge is so much better.

    • Eric P

      Meh. Says you. Why does it have to be either or? I’m not a fan of that lead girl on Revenge she’s a good actress and i can tolerate her but i like SMG way better.

      • lisa g

        I like both shows but I’m not a big fan of the lead in Revenge as well! Can’t put my finger on it but i think they could have made a better casting choice!

      • lexi

        I like them both, but Revenge is definitely better.

      • Jeffrey C

        Given a choice, I’d take Revenge over Ringer, but why choose? I like them both.

    • sandra

      I like both shows. I think Emily VanCamp is great in Revenge. Nothing I like more than strong women characters on tv and Emily Thorne is one for sure!

      • lorna

        i like emily, but she did much better on everwood.

    • LOL

      America loves crap.

    • lisa

      Both good shows but I prefer SMG and Ringer although I do watch Revenge too. No need to choose as they are on different nights. Happy for SMG and Ringer to get a full season pickup :) Thanks for the spoiler alert EW that SMG’s character is a triplet-UGH would have been nice to have been shocked.

    • Lydia

      Revenge is good but different plot.. Ringer is a great thriller..

  • Thai-Anh

    Awesome! This show builds with every episode. It took a few episodes for the show to get it footing. SMG rules!

        in the bottom left corner of the article? It was a joke.

  • ck

    One of the best shows this Fall is the last 5 minutes of Ringer.

    One of the worst shows this Fall is the first 55 minutes of Ringer.

    • Brad H

      Very accurate.

      • tigger851

        couldn’t have predicted that ending last night!!! wooooo!

    • grrreat!

      I agree that the first few episodes especially that boat scene from the first were abysmal!! but last night’s episode was intriguing!! so happy with the news!!

  • snot

    i’m very happy for smg but i am still not hooked on this show.

  • V

    Can’t wait for Jason Dohring to be on it next week! This show has an awesome cast but I do hope they pick up the pace a little. It needs to progress at a jauntier clip.

  • kate middleton

    Yay! This show is really getting good. I will keep watching for sure.

  • YRBB

    Glad to hear this. The show has been improving with each new episode.

  • Ed

    Wow, that’s for also giving the huge spoiler about the season finale. Was that really needed?

    • YRBB

      It’s not true, as it is explained at the end.

    • spencer

      please tell me you’re joking…lol.

        His name IS Ed. I’ve met very few smart “Eds” (horse not included.

  • me

    Actually, they are going to reveal she is one of quintuplets and their mother is Kate Gosselin….

    • Dominic

      Well that’s a twist I didn’t see coming…
