You just can't stop The Walking Dead.

Many shows are using March to take some time off, while others are struggling with a little spring fatigue ahead of May sweeps, but AMC's zombie hit just keeps right on trucking. Meanwhile, Touch and Cult seem to be sealing their respective fates, and The Big Bang Theory did ... well, you can probably guess.

MONDAY, March 11th

Being Human (Syfy) 1.12 million viewers/0.4

Being Human held on to its ratings and picked up more viewers for a nice improvement over last week.

Continuum (Syfy) 1.09 million viewers/0.3 

Continuum picked up a few more viewers for another climbing week. We'll see if it keeps gaining, but a second season is already on the way, so if you're a fan you can breathe easy.

Lost Girl (Syfy) 1.10 million viewers/0.4

Lost Girl returned rebounded after a drop in viewers last week for another solid night.

Revolution (NBC) — OFF

Revolution returns March 25.

WEDNESDAY, March 13th

Arrow (CW) -- OFF

Dragons: Riders of Berk (TOON) 1.83 million viewers/0.3

Dragons picked up so many viewers that it almost got back to 2 million for the first time since January. But it also lost a tenth of a ratings point. This one's slipping, but not enough to kill it.

The Neighbors (ABC) 4.72 million viewers/1.4/4 share

The Neighbors took a big drop in both viewers and ratings for its worst episode ever. This could just be a spring slump, but the show will need to pick up at season's end if it wants to stick around.

Supernatural (CW) -- OFF

Shows on Hiatus

Futurama (Comedy) — Returns 2013

American Horror Story (FX) — Returns Fall 2013


THURSDAY, March 14th

The Big Bang Theory (CBS) 15.90 million viewers/4.8/16 share

The Big Bang Theory 's even feeling the spring slump this week, but that still didn't stop it from dominating.

Person of Interest (CBS) 14.34 million viewers/2.9/8 share

Person of Interest took a small drop in viewers but gained in the ratings for another good week.

Elementary (CBS) 11.33 million viewers/2.3/7 share

Elementary returned from a week off to another solid episode. This CBS Thursday lineup just can't be stopped.

The Vampire Diaries (CW) 2.41 million viewers/1.1/4 share

The Vampire Diaries returned from a week off to a big drop in viewers and ratings. This one's not going anywhere, but we'll see if it can match last season's numbers come finale time.

Beauty and the Beast (CW) 1.43 million viewers/0.5/1 share

Beauty and the Beast broke even in ratings but lost a few viewers. It's still in the hunt for renewal, but at this point it's doing worse than its predecessor - The Secret Circle - did in the same timeslot on the same week last year. And The Secret Circle didn't survive.

Archer (FX) 1.17 million viewers/0.7

Archer dipped again for its worst night of the season so far, but it's still doing pretty well.

FRIDAY, March 15th

Touch (FOX) 2.22 million viewers/0.6/2 share

Touch took another dive for its worst episode ever. Don't expect this one to be around next season.

Merlin (Syfy) -- OFF (Returns May 3)

Spartacus: War of the Damned (Starz) 1.08 million viewers/0.5

Spartacus got a very good boost for its best episode all year. 

Grimm (NBC) 4.91 million viewers/1.4/5 share

Grimm broke even in viewers but lost a tenth of a ratings point. It's not doing spectacularly, but it's probably a safe bet that it'll be around next year.

Cult (CW) 0.72 million viewers/0.2/1 share

Cult got a slight boost in viewers this week, but that's basically the only good thing we can say about it. Even by CW standards, this show is performing pretty poorly.
