What Went Wrong with The CW's Ringer?

Sarah Michelle Gellar

On Tuesday, Ringer's freshman season comes to a close — and it's anyone's guess as to whether or not it will be renewed for a second season.

Why? Ratings haven't been great. Ringer hit a series low two weeks ago with only 1.05 million tuning in. On the surface, it's hard to explain why: Not only was Sarah Michelle Gellar, best known for her Buffy the Vampire Slayer days, returning to TV, but viewers were getting a double dose of her as estranged twins, one of whom faked her own death. There was also whole lot of eye candy (see: Ioan Gruffudd, Kristopher Polaha and Lost alum Nestor Carbonell), and a murder mystery with as many twists and turns as there are Buffy die-hards.

32 bubble shows — which will survive?

So why didn't Ringer become the new guilty pleasure hit? TVGuide.com turned to series executive producer Pam Veasey (CSI: NY) to get her take on why the neo-noir thriller never clicked with a big audience. Plus: Veasey discusses how Season 2 would be different should the series get renewed, and how Siobhan and Bridget have become the "will-they-or-won't-they" duo of the show. (Oh, get your mind out of the gutter!) read more

Question: I know you weren't too fond of the final season of Entourage (to put it nicely), but I was curious if you thought Jeremy Piven's work this year was worthy of an Emmy nomination? — Joe

Matt Roush: Sure. I wouldn't mind seeing him get one last nomination. He used to own that supporting comedy actor category, winning three in a row before he dropped off the radar (along with the show), part of the backlash ...

Fall TV Preview: Ringer

Sarah Michelle Geller and Ioan Gruffudd

Having come of age in the pre-VCR/DVD/DVR era, I have a soft spot for the sort of glossy B-movie melodramas that used to be a staple of local channels. Movies like Dead Ringer, a '60s potboiler starring Bette Davis as a woman who takes over her identical twin's identity. Any resemblance to the CW's Ringer may not be intentional, but it predisposes me to come along for the convoluted ride. (Comparisons to the twin-swapping shenanigans over at ABC Family's The Lying Game are also inevitable, but this is a much more clearly defined mystery thriller, and is aimed at a slightly more mature and sophisticated audience. It was developed for CBS, believe it or not.)

5 Things to Expect from Ringer — Besides Sarah Michelle Gellar

Sarah Michelle Gellar

Who hasn't missed Sarah Michelle Gellar vanquishing all manner of Hellmouth demon in Buffy the Vampire Slayer? Is there someone who didn't love her turn as sexed up manipulator Kathryn Merteuil in Cruel Intentions? Point is we've had the premiere of Ringer, aka the return of SMG to weekly TV, marked on our calendars since it got the green light back in May.

But there are other reasons outside of Gellar to check out her new soapy thriller, too, starting with the premise: She plays estranged twins! Bridget is a recovering addict on the run from some unsavory types, and when super-rich sis Siobhan goes missing, she takes on the presumed-dead's identity as a last resort. Of course, we also just said she's playing twins... Hooked yet?
