Cancellation Watch: Warehouse 13 and Alphas Drop in Their Second Weeks
Not needing the Olympics excuse this week were HBO's True Blood and MTV's Teen Wolf with the former remaining steady in the ratings and the latter improving. True Blood stayed firm at a 2.6 rating in the 18-49 demo with 4.6 total viewers and won Sunday night among cable shows again. Teen Wolf improved its numbers for a second week in a row (after taking a hit during the Viacom/DirecTV feud), pulling a 0.7 rating and 1.6 million viewers.
Last Thursday, Saving Hope actually improved its rating to a 0.6 ratings but slipped a bit in total viewers to 2.86 million vs. 3 million the prior week. And on Comedy Central, Futurama stayed level at a 0.6 rating with 1.2 million total viewers.
Falling Skies took a break this past Sunday, but returns next week for the final stretch of its second season. There's still no word on a renewal for this one, but all expectations are that TNT will bring it back.
