Syfy’s Monday night shows continue their struggles, and this week they don’t have Olympic coverage to blame for their ratings woes. Warehouse 13, the current flagship for that network’s scripted shows, slipped all the way to a 0.5 rating in the 18-49 demo with 1.56 million total viewers. I believe that represents a series low for a new episode and an indication that this show might have passed its prime. Alphas, which has actually been doing okay so far this season, slipped down to a 0.4 rating (a definite series low) with less than one million total viewers. Don’t know at this point if this is just a blip for these shows, but Warehouse 13 has definitely been underperforming this season and seems to be dragging Alphas down with it. I won’t adjust the Cancellation Alert on either of this just yet, but if they don’t improve their numbers by next week, I will definitely raise the level a notch.
HBO’s True Blood continues its strong fifth season performance as that show again topped cable programs this past Sunday pulling a 2.6 rating in the 18-49 demo and 4.5 million total viewers. And TNT’s Falling Skies continues to hold steady as it winds down its second season, pulling a 1.3 rating and 3.46 million total viewers this past Sunday. And it was the third most watched cable show for the night, an improvement from where it has ranked earlier in the season. And MTV’s Teen Wolf wrapped up its second season on an up note as it pulled a 0.8 rating this past Monday with 1.7 million total viewers.
