'Teen Wolf' Closes Out Season on High Ratings Note
MTV's reboot of the 1980s Teen Wolf feature films proved successful.
Teen Wolf ended its rookie season on Monday night delivering a series high in the key persons 12-34 demographic (1.9 rating) and just below its highest total viewership, drawing 2.1 million at 10 p.m. (The series debut averaged 2.2 million in early June when it premiered after the MTV Movie Awards.) The season closer was also the top program in its time slot among teens and females 12-34.
In its first season, Teen Wolf averaged a 1.5 in the cable network's key demo and about 1.7 million total viewers each week.
A 12-episode second season has already been ordered with the series set to return next year. MTV's Awkward was also renewed for a second round, but canceled The Hard Times of R.J. Berger.
