This week brought another winter finale, and American Horror Story: Coven did not disappoint.

The FX horror anthology series closed out its third season with another round of very strong numbers, leaving us looking forward to season four. Meanwhile, Intelligence finally got a rebound, The Following dropped in its second episode back, and The Big Bang Theory did what The Big Bang Theory always does. 

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


MONDAY, January 27

Beauty and the Beast (CW) 0.82 million viewers/0.3/1 share

Beauty and the Beast got another small boost in viewers but held in its demo score. It's still facing cancellation, but nothing is certain yet.

Almost Human (FOX) - OFF

Teen Wolf (MTV) 1.87 million viewers/0.8

Teen Wolf lost a few viewers but kept a strong demo score for another good week. 

Lost Girl (Syfy) 0.81 million viewers/0.3

Lost Girl bounced back a little this week after two weeks of drops. We'll see if it can keep climbing.

Being Human (Syfy) 1.11 million viewers/0.5

Bitten (Syfy) 0.93 million viewers/0.3

Bitten got a nice boost this week for its best night of the series so far. We'll see if the climb continues. 

Archer (FX) 1.12 million viewers/0.7

Intelligence (CBS) 6.84 million viewers/1.5/4 share

Intelligence finally got a boost after two big drops, adding more than 1 million viewers and four tenths of a demo point this week. The show's been in big trouble, but perhaps this is the start of a real rebound.

The Following (FOX) 6.02 million viewers/2.0/5 share

The Following shifted from Sunday to Monday this week and took a big dropoff from its season-two premiere audience. The drop is deceptive, though, because the numbers it put up this week, while slightly low, are still close to what the show was achieving for much of last season, so there's no reason to worry yet.
