Last Friday, the CW cancelled it's newest drama "The Beautiful Life" after only two episodes. The show, starring Mischa Barton, Sara Paxton, and Elle Macpherson, recevieved low ratings. Although the show was produced by Ashton Kutcher, it only premiered with approximately 1.5 million viewers and lost about 60 percent of the audience the following week, to "America's Next Top Model." For now, The CW plans on filling the vacant timeslot with re-runs of the new "Melrose Place."
The teen-friendly drama focused primarily on the lives of models living together in Manhattan. Although the CW's other new drama "Melrose Place" has also received dismal ratings, the network hopes that it will gain more viewers. On the up side, Thursday night's "The Vampire Diaries," has been proving to be the networks newest hit, with exceptional ratings.
