Ratings for the season 3 premiere of Teen Wolf are in — and they're through the roof!

The season 3 debut of the hit scripted series garnered a 2.3 rating in viewers aged 12-34 and brought in 1.8 million viewers in the demo, making it the highest-rated telecast for the series to date. It's also up 15 percent from season 2's premiere and up 10 percent from the first-ever episode — both of which were boosted by the MTV Movie Awards.

And those loyal to the hairy high school show were definitely logged into Twitter, too! It was the most social program — barring sports programming — yesterday, with 20 percent of all Twitter users engaged in TV-related conversations tweeting about Teen Wolf. The show generated approximately 1 million mentions on Twitter over the course of the day, making it the #1 most tweeted about MTV show — except the MTV Movie Awards and MTV Video Music Awards — since the beginning of 2012.

Fans were definitely howling about this series last night. Woof!
