Ratings Report:

  • It was a night of finales across broadcast, both for series and seasons. On Fox, cult hit comedy NEW GIRL ended its seven season run slightly up over last week, earning a 0.6 among 18-49s, on par with its seasonal average. Earlier in the evening, a MASTERCHEF JUNIOR clip show earned a 0.5.
  • ABC took the night overall for ratings, largely thanks to ROSEANNE, earning a steady 2.6 for the newest episode and up 4% in total audience. Other ABC comedies also enjoyed slightly improved audience numbers throughout the night, but without much movement on ratings week-to-week. BLACKISH ended its season up a tenth at 1.2, while SPLITTING UP TOGETHER remained even. FOR THE PEOPLE was also steady with last week, earning a 0.5, although it was the only ABC show to lose some of its overall audience.
  • After achieving a season high last week with Perrette Pauley’s exit, CBS’ NCIS dropped four tenths this week, earning a 1.2 (more in line with its current season average), while the 2-hour finale of franchise spinoff NCIS: NEW ORLEANS (0.9) was up a tenth over last week.
  • Tuesday’s edition of THE VOICE on NBC ticked up by two tenths to earn a 1.4 for the night, while finales for RISE (0.7/series end) and CHICAGO MED (0.9) were flat and down a tenth, respectively. On CW, THE FLASH (0.7) and THE 100 (0.4) remained even with last week.
