Next week, the Fall shows start to return in force, but this week we're still all about summer shows. Lost Girl finally ended its two-season run, hitting a very high note, while Wilfred struggles as it heads toward a finale. Plus, Doctor Who stays strong, and a special Touch episode was here to tide us over until season two.
Check out our chart and commentary for more on how your favorite shows are doing in Live + Same Day viewers and rating.
Warehouse 13 (Syfy) 1.66 million viewers/0.5
Warehouse 13 dropped a few viewers from its last episode but held on to its rating score. This one's still staying strong on Mondays for Syfy.
Alphas (Syfy) 1.32 million viewers/0.5
Alphas also had a slump on its return week, losing nearly half a million viewers but also maintaining its ratings score. This little Monday night block is holding largely steady, but we'll see how it fares next week when more new shows starts to invade its territory.
Grimm (NBC) — OFF
Grimm took a week off, and when it returns it will move back to Fridays to make way for NBC's new sci-fi series Revolution (more on that next week) on Mondays. We'll see it again September 28.
Shows on Hiatus
Being Human (Syfy) — Returns Jan. 14, 2013
Teen Wolf (MTV) — Returns 2013
Dragons: Riders of Berk (TOON)1.81 million viewers/0.4
Dragons dropped below two million viewers for the first time in its short history last Tuesday but held on to its ratings score. For a show of this kind to earn this many viewers on a network that averaged fewer than one million daily viewers last week is a very good sign.
Shows on Hiatus
American Horror Story (FX) — Returns October 2012
Futurama (Comedy) — Returns 2013
Saving Hope (NBC) — ONLINE ONLY
Saving Hope ended its first season online after NBC pulled the final two episodes from broadcast. It's doubtful that the second season (which has already been greenlit in Canada) will make it here, but we'll keep you posted.
Tron: Uprising (DISNEY XD)—OFF
No Tron: Uprising this week. The season finale will arrive this fall.
Wilfred (FX)0.64 million viewers/0.3
More bad news for Wilfred this week. After posting its lowest viewership ever with its previous episode, the series dropped yet again to hit a brand new low. With just one week to go until the season finale, that's not good.
Show on Hiatus
The Big Bang Theory (CBS) — Returns Sept. 27, 2012
Person of Interest (CBS) — Returns Sept. 27, 2012
Touch (Fox) — Returns Oct. 26, 2012
The Vampire Diaries (CW) — Returns Oct. 11, 2012
Lost Girl (Syfy)1.45 million viewers/0.5
Lost Girl ended its second season on Syfy with big numbers, earning the second-highest viewer count in the history of its U. S. run, second only to the Syfy series premiere, and earning the highest demo rating since June 18. New episodes return in January.
Touch (FOX)3.07 million viewers/0.7/3 share
Touch doesn't officially return until October 26, but we got another peek at it this week with a special "lost" episode from last season. The episode was the least-watched broadcast in the show's history, but considering it was basically a bonus episode, that's not too bad. We'll see a true test of Touch's staying power when the second season premieres next month.
Shows On Hiatus
Clone Wars (TOON) — Returns September 2012
Fringe (Fox) — Returns Sept. 28, 2012
Merlin (Syfy) — Returns Unknown
Spartacus (Starz) — Returns Unknown
Supernatural (CW) — Returns Oct. 3, 2012
Doctor Who (BBC)0.96 million viewers/0.4
Doctor Who took another drop this week, sinking below the one million viewers mark for the first time this season. Not great, but definitely not bad either. These numbers are still pretty strong for a BBC America show (on Saturday at that), Who is still outscoring its Saturday night companion series Copper, and we can expect a jump when this round of episodes ends.
