The Walking Dead has never looked stronger, but Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. has never looked weaker.

The AMC zombie drama continues to outperform all of its previous seasons, despite some drops in viewers, but Marvel's new TV venture just keeps dropping, though its numbers are still relatively solid. Meanwhile, Once Upon a Time in Wonderland keeps looking worse, Dracula took another drop, Haven got a nice boost, and American Horror Story: Coven keeps putting up magical numbers. 

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


MONDAY, November 4

Sleepy Hollow (FOX) 7.08 million viewers/2.5/6 share

11-13 Sleepy Hollow.jpg

Sleepy Hollow dipped again to a new low in both viewers and demo score, but it's still one of the strongest shows Fox has right now, and it's still getting a second season.

Beauty and the Beast (CW) 0.68 million viewers/0.3/1 share

11-13 BATB_0.jpg

Beauty and the Beast held on to its demo score this week but took a substantial drop in viewers. There's no way around it now. This show's in trouble.

TUESDAY, November 5

11-13 SHIELD.jpg

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. dropped again to set a new low in both viewers and ratings for the second straight week. If the show keeps trending down, we might have to start worrying about season two, but there's still plenty of time for a boost to happen. 

Person of Interest (CBS) 11.79 million viewers/1.9/6 share 

11-13 POI.jpg

Person of Interest kept its somewhat low demo score and lost a few viewers. We're just getting started with sweeps, though, so it's got room to rebound. 

Supernatural (CW) 2.15 million viewers/0.9/2 share 

11-13 Supernatural.jpg

Supernatural took another drop in viewers this week, but it still hasn't dropped below 2 million this season. For a show this old on a network like The CW, that's impressive. 

The Originals (CW) 2.03 million viewers/0.9/3 share

11-13 Originals.jpg

The Originals dipped slightly this week in both viewers and demo score, but it just got a full season pickup, so The CW has faith in it. We'll see if the rest of the season proves that faith is worth it. 

Ravenswood (ABC Family) 1.02 million viewers/0.4

11-13 Ravenswood.jpg

Ravenswood dropped yet again this week, pushing it further and further away from its solid debut numbers. We'll see if it can redeem itself soon. 


WEDNESDAY, November 6

American Horror Story: Coven (FX) 3.79 million viewers/2.2

11-13 AHS.png

Coven rebounded this week after three straight ratings drops, proving that this season is determined to be stronger than the last. It also continues to dominate Wednesday night cable.

Arrow (CW) 2.80 million viewers/1.0/3 share

11-13 Arrow.jpg

Arrow got a very nice rebound this week after a weak showing last week. Looks like the League of Assassins paid off. We'll see if it keeps up. 

Revolution (NBC) 5.21 million viewers/1.4/4 share

11-13 Revolution.jpg

Revolution got a boost in viewers this week, but its low demo score stayed the same. Things aren't looking good here. 

The Tomorrow People (CW) 1.56 million viewers/0.6/1 share

11-13 Tomorrow People.jpg

The Tomorrow People hit a new low in viewers but held steady in its demo score, plus it just got a full season pickup. The CW likes what it sees, so far.


THURSDAY, November 7

The Big Bang Theory (CBS) 16.89 million viewers/4.9/15 share

11-13 TBBT.jpg

The Big Bang Theory took a drop this week, but was still stellar. 

Elementary (CBS)  8.89 million viewers/1.8/5 share

11-13 Elementary.png

Elementary lost some viewers but held its demo score for a good week. 

The Vampire Diaries (CW) 2.59 million viewers/1.3/4 share

11-13 TVD_0.jpg

The Vampire Diaries bounced back after a weak night last week for a very strong episode. We'll see if it keeps up. 

Once Upon a Time in Wonderland (ABC) 3.55 million viewers/0.9/3 share

11-13 OUAT Wonderland_0.jpg

Once Upon a Time in Wonderland returned from a week off to yet another drop in viewers and demo score. Things look really bad for this show. 

DreamWorks' Dragons: Defenders of Berk (TOON) 1.55 million viewers/04

11-13 Dragons.jpg

Dragons returned this week to a demo score that doubled its last one, and a nice chunk of viewers to boot.

Grimm (NBC) 4.88 million viewers/1.3/4 share


11-13 Grimm.jpg

Grimm dropped again this week, but it's rebounded from these lows before, so don't be surprised to see it bounce back again. 

Haven (Syfy) 1.72 million viewers/0.5


11-13 Haven.jpg

Haven gained viewers and got a nice demo score boost for its best week so far this season.

The Neighbors (ABC) 4.52 million viewers/1.0/4 share


11-13 neighbors.jpg

The Neighbors again gained viewers but held steady with its demo score. Neither number is very impressive at the moment, so don't be surprised if this one makes an exit.

Once Upon a Time (ABC) 6.71 million viewers/2.1/5 share

11-13 OUAT.jpg

Once Upon a Time fell across the board this week and hit a viewership low. We'll see if it can recover before the Christmas break.
