    ARGH! It’s upsetting that Teen Wolf didn’t cross over 2 million viewers for its finale last night. It was a great episode last night and for what they have in store for Season 3, I can’t wait!

    C’mon people, you want a good show to watch and you’re into the supernatural mythology? Watch Teen Wolf!

    It has honestly surpassed The Vampire Diaries at this point in terms of quality, storytelling, writing, and character development. The acting as well has vastly improved this season compared to Season One. Not to mention the special effects!

    WATCH TEEN WOLF FOLKS!

  • John A

    Alphas below a million Lmao. Warehouse 13 numbers low too.

  • Aerilyn

    All that said, so glad Teen Wolf has been renewed for a super sized Season 3 and Jeff Davis plans to keep up the 12 episode arc so we don’t have any fillers next season.

    Side note: Any numbers on Bunheads from last night?

  • Aerilyn

    Also glad to say it has been rock solid consistent this season which is great!

  • Matto

    wow… amazing for The Closer. I though it wiuld only garner around 7M with a 1.0… wasnt expecting 9.1M and a 1.6.

    Major Crimes is now the second biggest debut for a new series on TNT only behind the Steven Bochco-produced Raising the Bar. But 7.2M and a 1.2 is still amazing though.

  • Kim

    Really wanted to see Teen Wolf hit 2 million viewers. It’s good that it went up in the demo a little, which I was expecting, but still. I think it’s the name of the show that throws people off…

  • SoCal

    Pawn Stars # is low. I would have had no idea it was new, but Chumlee tweeted about it right before it started!

  • zach

    I still dont consider major crimes a new series really it is just the closer with a new lead.

  • Rono

    RHONYC up! Finally, because this is the best season so far

  • Bob

    Scooby doo mystery incorporetd ratings anyone

  • zach

    @ Matto. I think TNT Rizzoli and Isles might have had more then the 7.2 premiere for their series premiere. Help someone.

  • Nick

    Disappointed about alphas, last nights episodes was easily the best, hopefully it will be renewed

  • Mhmmmm

    love and hip hop rules fools!! hahaah

  • Sid

    @Aerilyn

    I tried watching Teen Wolf on Netflix and I couldn’t make it past the first episode. I found it to be incredibly boring and the writing seemed very weak. Plus I promised myself that I wouldn’t get attached to another genre show for a while. :)

  • Tom

    Would someone please post the ratings for Bunheads?

  • Annie

    I think that Teen Wolf is one of those shows that’s more exciting to follow online, via twitter and tumblr, than it it is to actually watch.

  • Max

    @Sid

    You are missing out. Teen Wolf gets better and better in season one and season two was off the chains. But to each his own.

  • Kim

    @Max, I was just going to say the same thing. The writing is fairly sharp in season two and is 10x better than season one.

  • Aerilyn

    @Sid, what Max and Kim just said. The Pilot isn’t the best episode of Teen Wolf, and in Season One things really kick off by the 4th episode. Also, Season 2 blows Season 1 out of the water in every way. This is one show you wouldn’t regret getting attached to once you get into it.

    Buffy fans especially would love it, like me! As there are a lot of similarities and parallels between the two.

  • Julie

    Anyone have an idea how Episodes did for the season finale?
