Another show got a midseason premiere this week, and it started strong.

The CW's latest sci-fi offering, The 100, premiered with the best midseason debut numbers the network has seen since 2010. Meanwhile, other shows are beginning to get renewal notices, and while series like SupernaturalThe Vampire Diaries and Grimm have already earned another year, shows like Intelligence are struggling to survive. 

Check out the numbers and commentary below to see how your favorite shows are doing in Live + Same Day ratings.


MONDAY, March 17

Beauty and the Beast (CW) -- OFF

Teen Wolf (MTV) 2.00 million viewers/0.8

Teen Wolf got a small boost to viewers and held its demo score for a solid week. 

Lost Girl (Syfy) 0.76 million viewers/0.3

Lost Girl picked up a few more viewers, but more importantly it held the boosted demo score it got last week after a long slump in that area. We'll see if it can maintain and even build on that as the finale nears. 

Being Human (Syfy) 1.13 million viewers/0.5

Being Human got a small boost to its viewers for its best episode in three weeks. Just three more to go.

Bitten slipped in viewers this week after setting a high last week, but held its demo score. 

Intelligence (CBS) 5.30 million viewers/1.1/3 share

Intelligence dropped to an all-time low in both viewers and demo score this week, making it look even more like a one-season show.

Archer (FX) 0.91 million viewers/0.4

Archer slipped this week to hits its lowest demo score of the season, but it's already got two more years coming.  

The Following (FOX) 3.95 million viewers/1.4/4 share

The Following slipped to a new season low for the second straight week, but it's already coming back. 

Star-Crossed (CW) 1.00 million viewers/0.3/1 share

Bates Motel (FX) 1.84 million viewers/0.7

Bates Motel took another hefty drop this week to hit another series low in viewers and demo score. If this continues, season two could be the end. 

The Tomorrow People (CW) 1.17 million viewers/0.4/1 share

The Tomorrow People shifted to Beauty and the Beast's vacated timeslot this week, and it did about as well as it was doing in its old Wednesday slot. It's not doomed, but if it can't improve it may be a one-season wonder.

The 100 (CW) 2.73 million viewers/0.9/3 share

The 100 premiered to numbers strong enough to make it The CW's best midseason debut in four years. We'll see how much of that early audience it can hold on to.
