On the heels of handing Arrow a full season order, The CW has ordered three additional scripts each for freshman drama series Beauty And The Beast and Emily Owens, M.D.

While not the same vote of confidence as a back nine order, the script commitments are good news for both freshman series which have had a hard time gaining traction in the ratings. Beauty And The Beast premiered to 3.2 million viewers and a 1.3 rating in the 18-49 demo in live+same day, before suffering a steep ratings decline in week 2 when the show pulled in a mere 2 million total viewers and a 0.7 rating in the 18-49 demo in live+same day. Emily Owens, M.D. is also suffering from some rating woes. The series premiere to only 1.7 million viewers and a 0.5 rating in the 18-49 demo in live+same day. Though it should be noted that Emily Owens, M.D. was up against the second Presidential debate which is sure to have deflated its performance somewhat.
