preface"The series is set 97 years after a devastating nuclear war wiped out almost all life on Earth. The only survivors are the residents of twelve space stations in Earth’s orbit prior to the war, and the descendants of the people on earth who survived the war, called "grounders" by the 100. The space stations banded together to form a single massive station named "The Ark", where about 2,400 people live. Resources are scarce and all crimes no matter their nature or severity are punishable by death ("floating") unless the perpetrator is under 18 years of age. After the Ark’s life support systems are found to be critically failing, one hundred juvenile prisoners are declared "expendable" and sent to the surface in a last ditch attempt to determine if Earth is habitable again."notesThis is an excellent show that is CURRENTLY AIRING on the CW (having just finished its first season), slated for an expanded second season in the fall of 2014. Get on board now and catch up with season one over the summer! It has a diverse cast, incredible women, fascinating and complex characters, and best of all, everyone is beautiful. Think Lord of the Flies meets Battlestar Galactica. You’ll get sucked in sooner than you know it.

Hey guys, so we know a lot of you have been curious about the ratings drop that’s been taking place this year.
You may have noticed that we didn’t show a lot of concern for the changes that were taking place, which was due largely to the fact that we knew we were missing a lot of important data. We were hesitant to come right out and say that “THE NUMBERS ARE FALLING” before we got a full picture of what was going on.
For instance: Things like the 12-34 demo (most important to MTV) and time shifting data (the number of people watching at a later date) just isn’t public information. It was important to us that we obtain this info before we started making any broad statements that might be completely incorrect. And it’s probably a good thing we delayed those responses.
In the interest of science, we’ve managed to gather some info for you. An authorized source has passed on a few stats and given us permission to share them with you.
First thing is first: While the Nielsen ratings are down, Teen Wolf has actually seen their highest DVR numbers ever.
- For example, a typical DVR lift in season 3B would be 40% for Live + 3 days.
- And this season the DVR lifts were more around 60%.
(Live + 3: The number of people that watched a program either while it was being broadcast live OR watched via DVR on the same day as the program plus 3 days out.)
- Furthermore, the lowest rated episode in season 4? It actually got a 74% lift, the highest ever for the show.
- We also learned that that numbers on Live + 7, video on demand, the web and the MTV App were also up this year.
(Live + 7: Same as above, but 7 days out rather than 3.)
Which tells us that there IS a significant change taking place. There was close to a 18% drop in Nielsen ratings this season, which is consistent with shows airing with a similar demographic. All of this suggesting that there’s a larger shift taking place - from how people are choosing to watch television rather than the number of people actually watching.
And this really isn’t a surprise at all when you consider the younger demo Teen Wolf targets. This is a generation that is much more acquainted with watching TV on their time rather than scheduling to watch live. Which is something Nielsen will be incorporating into its data next year.
We hope you know that we’re not sharing this information to try and persuade you of anything. This is going up in the interest of data sharing. If anything, we just want to add some context to the larger impression of where Teen Wolf stands in terms of viewers, and inform you why we’re not as concerned as you may think. Feel free to discuss things further!! And hopefully we’ll have more information to share with you in the future.
to add on a bit since i keep seeing really erroneous information about ratings:
- the viewers/ratings recorded by sites like TV By The Numbers only accounts for the 18-49 demographic, which isn’t what matters to MTV and Teen Wolf. the demo that does matter to MTV and advertisers isn’t one that we get to see, like mentioned above.
- TW aired significantly later in the summer than it usually does. i could go on about summer shows in general because people travel and are generally out more at this time of year, but TW aired right as school was starting up again. DVR ratings significantly rising reflect all of this!
- not to mention that Teen Wolf is one of the top shows On Demand
- the numbers that most often get thrown around by people talking about dips in ratings are the “live viewers” numbers but ah haha about that:
- "A18-49 or Adults 18-49 Ratings - this is the advertising demographic advertisers are usually most interested in for primetime shows. It’s the important number in terms of how well a show is doing. Total viewers (P2+ above) don’t really make a difference." (x)
- tl;dr THAT IS LITERALLY THE NUMBER THEY DON’T CARE ABOUT
- the bit that’s important, at least in the 18-49 demo which again isn’t MTV’s demographic, is the bit under “18-49 rating (Live+SD)” which is usually something like 0.7 (the average 18-49 rating of TW S4; 3B, which had the highest viewer count, by what i can tell was averaging 0.8/0.9 but i honestly only gave those episodes a cursory look)
- not to mention that afaik those ratings for the time being don’t account for social media in the overall numbers but are tabulated separately (but also by nielsen!), but surprise surprise, TW is on a fairly regular basis fairly close to the top
- the finale was #2 for the week, only after Sons of Anarchy, topping Doctor Who and reality TV shows; the daily social media ranking for the day of the finale, it was #1
- hilariously, even if people are complaining about TW over twitter during the season, congrats but you’re contributing the fact that we are always doing well in social media. so hey, thanks for that!
- and then of course the aforementioned information about how dvr ratings have significantly gone up and how popular it is On Demand, which is par for the course with this time of year
- so like, yeah, there’s been a slight dip in ratings, that’s a fact but it’s also expected and not as much as people keep making it out to be???
- i’m not an expert on ratings at all and this was all literally really quick googling that literally anyone can do themselves, but instead y’all are fine with settling for listening to the equivalent of a corner preacher with a sign about how the world is ending and we should all repent for our sins
