I love Sarah Michelle Gellar to death. I really do. But I have to be honest, I wasn't even aware that Ringer was still on. I don't even know when it premiered. That's either me living under a rock or a stellar marketing job on the part of the CW.
Anyway, from the sound of it, it doesn't look like I'm missing much.

I'm 99.9% certain you're not a 15 year old girl. Therefore, The CW's marketing efforts likely never even enter your field of vision. I find I'm generally oblivious to The CW, even when stuff is right in front of me.
I wish Sarah Michelle Gellar nothing but wonderful things. But man, when Buffy ended she was one of the biggest stars on television, especially within the most desirable demographic. But compare her career trajectory with David Boreanaz. Gellar did some kids movies (Scooby Doo) and some B-grade horror flicks (The Grudge, The Return), and exiled herself from TV, her bread and butter. Boreanaz stayed on TV and is now an even bigger star on FOX with Bones. He's arguably more well known now as Seeley Booth with a general audience than he was as Angel for the Whedon crowd. Plus he's a producer on Bones and makes serious bank. Gellar meanwhile is on The CW trying her damnedest to make something out of Ringer.

I gave up on Ringer as well. There is too much going on and now that it got a full season, I am wondering if they are going to slow things down or just throw more shit against the wall. To be fair to SMG, Grudge and Scooby were big hits and part of the reason she has been gone for awhile is her baby. I just wish she waited to get a better show, I think her in a comedy show would be a better fit than the soap opera format.
