Break out the brooms 'cause it's time for sweeps. November sweeps, that is.

Each season, around the holidays, TV shows really go for it in order to bring in as many viewers as they can. We're talking deaths, shockers, first kisses, first times, massive fights, etc. etc. You know the drill, people.

But sometimes, it can just be a little too late. Some fan favorite shows have seen some pretty jawdropping declines this fall season. Seriously, you might just be surprised to see the series that are way down in the ratings. However, it's not all doom and gloom as some shows, including a bunch of newbies, have managed to increase their numbers. So basically, the TV version of riding a unicorn on a rainbow. 

So do you want to know which shows are soaring or sinking this fall season? Click through our gallery below to get the lowdown on 15 new and returning series that forced us to crunch some serious numbers. (Math is hard. Our brains hurt. Stay in school.)
