‘Beauty and the Beast’ Gets Full Season, ‘Emily Owens’ Nabs ‘Buffy’ Alum

The CW has been enjoying some notable success this season, particularly with the breakout smash of ‘Arrow,’ though several other new efforts haven’t quite caught on as wildly.  ‘Beauty and the Beast‘ has become a mild performer, while ‘Emily Owens, M.D.‘ got off to a rocky start and been on a slow recovery, but there’s good news for both.  The CW has officially bumped ‘Beauty’ up to a full season, while ‘Owens’ is getting a blast from the past from a former ‘Buffy‘ star.

The CW’s ‘Beauty and the Beast’ needn’t fear those modest ratings anymore, as we’ve learned from Entertainment Weekly that the Kristen Kreuk-fronted supernatural procedural has officially been picked up for a back nine episodes, bringing the total order to 22.  Previously, the network had ordered additional scripts for the series, without confirming its intent to act on them.

Less certain is the future of quirky medical drama ‘Emily Owens, M.D.,’ which like ‘Beauty and the Beast’ had received additional script orders, but no decision has been made toward granting a back nine episodes.  On the plus side at least, The Hollywood Reporter has revealed that ‘Buffy the Vampire Slayer’ and ’24′ alum D.B. Woodside has been tapped to guest on the series for a multi-episode arc, to play Dr. Gina Bandari (Necar Zadegan)’s husband Evan.  Woodside’s appearance on ‘Buffy’ came after the series switched to UPN, though the actor also appeared in The CW’s ‘Hellcats.’

What say you?  Are either ‘Beauty and the Beast’ or ‘Emily Owens, M.D.’ worth saving?
