It was a good week for fans of The Clone Wars.

The Cartoon Network hit ended its fifth season with strong numbers, and a sixth season is on the way. If you're a fan of new shows Cult and Zero Hour, though, we've got some bad news.

Check out the numbers and commentary for all your favorite genre shows below.

MONDAY, February 25

Being Human (Syfy) 0.98 million viewers/0.4

Being Human took a drop this week, dipping just below one million viewers and losing a tenth off its ratings score. It's definitely down from last season, but it's not out. 

Continuum (Syfy) 0.98 million viewers/0.3 

Continuum also dropped this week, but at least the drop wasn't too steep.

Lost Girl (Syfy) -- OFF

Lost Girl had the week off.

Revolution (NBC) — OFF

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

Shows on Hiatus

Teen Wolf (MTV) — Returns 2013

Warehouse 13 (Syfy) — Returns April 2013

Tron: Uprising (Disney XD) — Returns Unknown

Canceled Shows

Alphas (Syfy)


TUESDAY, February 26

Cult (CW) 0.82 million viewers/0.3/1 share

After a very weak premiere last week, Cult dropped again in week two, losing a few viewers but holding on to its ratings score. There doesn't seem to be much hope for this one.


WEDNESDAY, February 27

Arrow (CW) 3.17 million viewers/1.0/3 share

Arrow got a boost this week, gaining some ground after a low night last week.

Dragons: Riders of Berk (TOON) 1.41 million viewers/0.3

Dragons took another drop this week and wound up with its least-watched episode ever. This one just hasn't been the same since midseason break.

The Neighbors (ABC) 6.01 million viewers/1.7/5 share

The Neighbors took a drop after a boost last week, but still kept just above six million viewers.

Supernatural (CW) 2.13 million viewers/0.9/2 share

Supernatural picked up a few more viewers for another solid night.

Shows on Hiatus

Futurama (Comedy) — Returns 2013

American Horror Story (FX) — Returns Fall 2013


THURSDAY, February 28

The Big Bang Theory (CBS) -- OFF

Person of Interest (CBS) -- OFF

Elementary (CBS) -- OFF

The Vampire Diaries (CW) -- OFF

Beauty and the Beast (CW) -- OFF

Archer (FX) 1.52 million viewers/1.0

Archer took a little drop this week, but it's still putting up consistenly good numbers.

Zero Hour (ABC) 5.05 million viewers/1.1/3 share

Zero Hour took yet another drop with its third episode, and with that it's officially canceled. Maybe ABC has a few more genre tricks up its sleeve, but its quest to find the next Lost is still failing.

Shows on Hiatus

Saving Hope (NBC) — Returns Unknown

Wilfred (FX) — Returns 2013

Haven (Syfy) — Returns Unknown

Canceled Shows

Last Resort (ABC)


FRIDAY, March 1st

Touch (FOX) 2.90 million viewers/0.8/2 share

Touch got a boost this week, but it's still holding below three million viewers, and well below the 12 million it had when it launched last year. It doesn't look like this one can be saved.

Merlin (Syfy) -- OFF

Spartacus: War of the Damned (Starz) 1.01 million viewers/0.4

Spartacus finally crested one million viewers after five weeks on the air, but it's still much worse off than it was even at its lowest point last season. Good thing this one was headed out anyway.

Grimm (NBC) — OFF

Grimm returns Friday.

Completed Shows

Fringe (FOX) — Run ended after five seasons


SATURDAY, March 2nd

Clone Wars (TOON) 2.18 million viewers/0.8

Clone Wars got a nice boost for its finale, picking up its highest numbers of an already strong season.

Shows on Hiatus

Bedlam (BBC) — Returns Unknown

Doctor Who (BBC) — Returns March 30, 2013


SUNDAY, March 3rd

Once Upon a Time (ABC) 7.39 million viewers/2.2/6 share


Once Upon a Time returned to another drop in viewers and ratings. It's not doing bad, but this show just doesn't have the power it had a few months ago.

666 Park Avenue (ABC) — OFF

666 Park Avenue has been pulled from the ABC lineup. We'll let you know if we find out when those final episodes will hit the airwaves (if they ever do).

The Walking Dead (AMC) 11.29 million viewers/5.7

Even two hit premieres over at The History Channel couldn't slow The Walking Dead down. The zombie juggernaut held on to its ratings score and picked up more viewers for another dominant night.

Shows on Hiatus

Falling Skies (TNT) — Returns 2013

Game of Thrones (HBO) — Returns March 31, 2013

True Blood (HBO) — Returns 2013
