While Syfy had a great Monday thanks to Being HumanSpartacus continued to struggle on Starz, and Clone Wars hit a season high for Cartoon Network.



Being Human (Syfy) 1.41 million viewers/0.6

Being Human got a nice boost in both viewers and ratings for its best episode since late last season. 

Continuum (Syfy) 1.15 million viewers/0.4 

Continuum lost a few viewers this week but held on to its ratings score. Maybe that low premiere really was just a bit of bad luck.

Lost Girl (Syfy) 1.05 million viewers/0.4

Lost Girl basically broke even this week. It's still a bit low, but it's got plenty of time to rebound. 

Revolution (NBC) — OFF

Revolution is on a long midseason break. We won't see it again until March.

Tron: Uprising (DISNEY XD) .24 million viewers/0.1

Tron: Uprising closed out its first season with another low week. It hasn't been canceled yet, but a string of very weak numbers might mean we don't get a season two.

Shows on Hiatus

Teen Wolf (MTV) — Returns 2013

Warehouse 13 (Syfy) — Returns April 2013

Canceled Shows

Alphas (Syfy)


Arrow (CW) 2.97 million viewers/0.9/3 share

Arrow dropped a bit this week, but remains among The CW's top shows, so there's not much to worry about.

Dragons: Riders of Berk (TOON) — OFF

Dragons returns to the list next week.

The Neighbors (ABC) 5.27 million viewers/1.6/4 share

The Neighbors took a big dive this week for its least-watched episode ever. Can it bounce back? We'll keep watching.

Supernatural (CW) 2.12 million viewers/0.9/2 share

Supernatural got a slight boost in viewers and broke even in ratings for another strong week.

Shows on Hiatus

Futurama (Comedy) — Returns 2013

American Horror Story (FX) — Returns Fall 2013



The Big Bang Theory (CBS) 17.76 million viewers/5.4/16 share

The Big Bang Theory returned after two weeks off to a drop in viewers and ratings, but it still absolutely dominated its night.

Person of Interest (CBS) 15.71 million viewers/3.2/9 share

Person of Interest returned from a break to basically break even in its scores, though it did lose a tenth of a ratings point. Still, it did its part in the CBS Thursday-night juggernaut.

Elementary (CBS) 10.90 million viewers/2.2/6 share

Elementary returned from a week off to a drop in both viewers and ratings. It's significant, but not enough to dethrone this series as one of the top new shows of the year.

The Vampire Diaries (CW) 2.56 million viewers/1.3/4 share

The Vampire Diaries dropped a few more viewers this week but held on to its rating score. At this point it's got fewer viewers than Arrow, but in terms of demo score it's still The CW's top series.

Beauty and the Beast (CW) 1.72 million viewers/0.7/2 share

Beauty and the Beast dropped a very small handful of viewers but held on to its demo score. It's still struggling to get another season, but it's doing better than many of The CW's other shows, so there's still hope.

Archer (FX) 1.58 million viewers/1.0

Archer broke even in viewers but lost a tenth of a ratings point. It's still going strong, so unless those numbers drop further there's no need to worry.

Spartacus: War of the Damned (Starz) 0.82 million viewers/0.3

After a very weak premiere, Spartacus lost even more viewers this week but held on to its (weak) demo score. It's still got time to rebound, but even if it doesn't this show is done.

Grimm (NBC) — OFF

Grimm is off until March.
