If you’re wanting to catch an episode or two of CW’s Beauty and the Geek, you’d better get a move on. Sources say that the upcoming May 13 season finale could be the last episode ever for the once-popular reality show.
Notice that I say once-popular. Seems Geek’s ratings have been slip-sliding away since the beginning of this season, which began March 11th. This ratings slip has led execs to the decision to call it over, at least for the time being, once the finale has aired.
While nothing has yet been confirmed on the demise of the Ashton Kutcher-produced show, which is now in its fifth season, sources speculate that the only way to get the show back on air will be to keep it off the air long enough to make it “seem fresh” once it’s aired again. However, execs might be swayed to consider the show again if the format were changed somewhat.
Beauty and the Geek airs Tuesdays at 8:00 PM (ET) on the CW. Catch the season five season finale on Tuesday, May 13th.
