Ratings: Syfy’s “12 Monkeys,” “Helix” Both Fall This Week

Last week, Syfy’s Friday dramas “12 Monkeys” and “Helix” suffered losses in the adults 18-49 demographic but enjoyed gains in total viewership.

This week, they fell in both columns.

Responsible for one of the series’ worst performances on record, Friday’s “12 Monkeys” delivered a mere 0.19 adults 18-49 rating with 677,000 viewers. Only the February 13 edition drew fewer viewers, and only the February 20 and 20 episodes fared worse in the key demo.

Last week’s “12 Monkeys” drew a 0.22 adults 18-49 rating with 727,000 viewers.

Despite its string of weak-to-modest performances in the live-plus-same-day ratings, “12 Monkeys” has already been renewed for next season.

“Helix,” which led out of “Monkeys,” slipped to a 0.15 rating with 519,000 viewers. Last week’s broadcast delivered a 0.18 with 570,000.
