Another week, another weak premiere, this time for The CW's Cult.

Meanwhile Syfy's Monday shows all got a nice rebound, Clone Wars hit a season high, Zero Hour continued to struggle, and even the Oscars couldn't stop The Walking Dead.

MONDAY, February 18

Being Human (Syfy) 1.15 million viewers/0.5

Being Human got another small boost this week, picking up a few more viewers while holding on to its rating. 

Continuum (Syfy) 1.12 million viewers/0.4 

Continuum got a boost to both viewers and ratings for a three-week high. Let's see if it can keep climbing.

Lost Girl (Syfy) 1.03 million viewers/0.4

Lost Girl jumped back over the one million-viewer mark after two low weeks. Can the rebound continue?

Revolution (NBC) — OFF

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

TUESDAY, February 19

Cult (CW) 0.86 million viewers/0.3/1 share

Cult had a rough premiere, pulling in fewer than one million viewers and managing a dangerously low demo rating. There's a chance that DVR numbers and word of mouth could boost it in weeks to come, but numbers like this won't cut it, even on The CW.


WEDNESDAY, February 20

Arrow (CW) 3.15 million viewers/0.9/3 share

Arrow dipped a bit this week but still came up with some pretty solid numbers.

Dragons: Riders of Berk (TOON) 1.65 million viewers/0.4

Dragons got a boost in both viewers and ratings this week, but it's still not back to where it was before the midseason break.

The Neighbors (ABC) 6.34 million viewers/1.9/5 share

The Neighbors got a boost in both viewers and ratings to hit a four-week high.

Supernatural (CW) 2.10 million viewers/0.9/2 share

Supernatural dropped a bit but still kept above the two-million-viewer mark. It's an impressive streak, and this season is still putting up better numbers than the last.

THURSDAY, February 21

The Big Bang Theory (CBS) 17.62 million viewers/5.6/17 share

The Big Bang Theory lost a few viewers, gained a tenth of a ratings point, and once again came out on top of the Thursday-night lineup.

Person of Interest (CBS) 14.22 million viewers/2.9/7 share

Person of Interest took a small drop, but still put up strong numbers.

Elementary (CBS) 11.19 million viewers/2.4/6 share

Elementary picked up more viewers and a higher demo score for its best week in more than a month.

The Vampire Diaries (CW) 2.91 million viewers/1.3/4 share

The Vampire Diaries bounced back from a long slide to recover a large number of viewers and three tenths of a point on its demo score. We'll see if it can keep climbing.

Beauty and the Beast (CW) 1.52 million viewers/0.5/1 share

Beauty and the Beast broke even in ratings but picked up a nice handful of viewers. It's still in trouble, but it's also still capable of saving itself.

Archer (FX) 1.69 million viewers/1.1

Archer got a major boost this week, pulling in the best numbers of its season so far.

Zero Hour (ABC) 5.39 million viewers/1.1/3 share

After a very lackluster premiere, Zero Hour only dropped further this week, losing both viewers and ratings. It could still turn around, but so far it looks poised to go the route of Last Resort.

FRIDAY, February 22

Touch (FOX) 2.51 million viewers/0.7/2 share

Touch lost a handful of viewers this week but broke even in its ratings. That would be fine, except for the fact that the numbers were already very, very low.

Merlin (Syfy) 1.41 million viewers/0.3

Merlin gained viewers but dropped a tenth of a ratings point. Still, it was a pretty solid week.

Spartacus: War of the Damned (Starz) 0.88 million viewers/0.3

Spartacus managed a small jump last time it was on the air, but this week it dropped right back down again. The final season of this show just doesn't have the numbers.

Grimm (NBC) — OFF

Grimm is off until March.
