This week it was Teen Wolf's turn to bow out of the summer show slate.

The MTV series aired the last of its 2013 episodes last Monday and finished strong, setting up a midseason return in January. Meanwhile, Wilfred set a new low for its season, Under the Dome finally stopped falling, and Continuum took a slight dip in the leadup to its season-two finale.

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

Teen Wolf (MTV) 2.08 million viewers/0.8

Teen Wolf closed out its 2013 run last Monday with a nice boost, climbing back over the 2-million-viewer mark for the first time since the second episode of season three. It'll be back to finish the season in January.

Under the Dome (CBS) 10.64 million viewers/2.4/7 share

Under the Dome got a small boost to viewers this week to level off after three straight weeks of drops. It's still one of the strongest shows on broadcast TV right now, and it looks like the decline has stopped, at least for the moment.
