It was nice to have Sarah Michelle Gellar back on TV, but the party's over for Ringer.

The CW canceled Ringer and The Secret Circle, while adding five new showsThe Carrie Diaries, Arrow, Beauty and the Beast, First Cut and Cult — and renewing Gossip Girl (for one last season), Hart of Dixie and Nikita.

Nikita had the same 1.8 million viewer average as the eliminated Ringer, and Entertainment Weekly noted that it's even more surprising that Nikita was picked to survive over Secret Circle, which had higher ratings at an average of 2 million viewers.

Maybe we shouldn’t even look for logic in these decisions, just mourn the loss of beloved stars … and time wasted watching shows the networks don’t support for longer than one season.
