Proving that skew does not hold precisely steady each week, the most recent installments of Syfy dramas “12 Monkeys” and “Helix” suffered losses in adults 18-49 but enjoyed gains in total viewership.
Friday’s “12 Monkeys” delivered a 0.22 adults 18-49 rating with 727,000 viewers. The audience total bested the 708,000 achieved by the previous episode, but the demo rating trailed that edition’s 0.26.
This Friday’s demo decline represented a second straight fall for the freshman drama. The series has, nonetheless, already been renewed for a second season.
“Helix” had a similarly mixed outing this week. Its adults 18-49 rating fell by 0.01 to a 0.18, but its viewership total increased by 23,000 to 570,000.
Syfy has yet to weigh in on a potential third season.
