‘Vixen’ Animated Series Premieres To Dismal Ratings On The CW



Vixen the popular animated CW Seed series based on the DC Comics character Mari McCabe / Vixen, a costumed superhero crime-fighter with the power to mimic the abilities of any animal, premiered on The CW network last night to an audience of, well, fewer than 700,000 viewers, according to The Wrap.

The Greg Berlanti, Marc Guggenheim and Andrew Kreisberg executive produced series, which launched online two years ago, finished seventh place last night in broadcast’s Nielsen ratings race.

Is this a case of low viewership in the summer or lack of advertising on the CW’s part? If you read some of the comments from The Wrap’s article below it may very well be the latter.

“I did not even know it aired since NO ONE MARKETED IT! Don’t blame the show or viewers when CW dropped the ball. The show “didn’t get off to a good start” due to next to no promotions!”

“I might have tuned in had I actually known about it. Nice job of marketing there, folks.”

“NEVER heard about this C-DUB WTF?!?!?! I loved it online. Are you trying to bury it?”

“Baffling that this is the first anyone knew about it.”

To be honest, I didn’t know about it either. The CW was seventh overall in ratings with a 0.2/1 and in viewers with 693,000. Vixen was the only show on the network’s schedule. NBC and Fox tied for first in ratings, both with a 1.2 rating/5 share in the advertiser-coveted 18-49 demographic. Below is the trailer for Season 2 of Vixen. It actually looks good.

10 Characters That Should Join DC’s ‘Titans’ TV Show

Previous1 of 11

Now that news has broke the long rumored Titans show will debut on a new DC subscription service, it’s time to for everyone to get up to speed on the Teen Titans.

We already know that Dick Grayson, Starfire and Raven will be on the show, but there are a lot of other members who deserve a chance to shine. While the show’s synopsis makes it sound like it may follow New Teen Titans by Marv Wolfman and George Perez, but the Titans can easily bring other heroes into the mix with some clever writing. There are a lot of great heroes who have called themselves Titans over the years, so I hope the show eventually builds to the point of being able to sustain a rotating roster chop full of classic heroes.

Geoff Johns, whose run on Teen Titans is one of my favorite comics of all time, co-wrote the pilot for the project with Akiva Goldsman so I’m hopeful the show will be emotionally rich as well as action packed. The Titans are a great group of characters and I’m ecstatic they are getting a chance at life outside of the kid-friendly, Teen Titans Go!

    Lack of marketing was definitely the case. I didn’t know about it till I was on “amazon” and under the section titled “Customers who watched this item also watched” and in that list of anime movies “DC Vixen” was in that category. Then I googled and there it was. Seriously whomever was suppose to be in charge of marketing this should be fired!!
