FX’s ‘Justified’ Ends Season Up in Ratings vs. Last Year

FX drama “Justified” wrapped its fifth and penultimate season Tuesday with ratings increases from its year-ago closer.

Nielsen estimates that the season finale of “Justified” averaged 2.37 million viewers — a 16% build over the previous week (2.04 million) and 5% larger than the crowd tuning in for its season-four finale.

In adults 18-49, the show’s 0.8 rating (a little over 1 million viewers in this demo) was up from the previous week’s 0.6. A year ago, the show closed with a 0.7.

The peak same-night rating for “Justified” this season was for its January premiere (1.1 rating in adults 18-49, 2.84 million viewers overall).

Like most FX dramas, “Justified” is a big percentage gainer in Nielsen’s “Live + 7” averages, which include a week’s worth of DVR playback. In the most recent L+7 issued this week, the March 18 episode of “Justified” grew 71% in adults 18-49 (1.2 from 0.7) and by 81% in total viewers (3.69 million from 2.04 million) from its “live plus same-day” average.

“Justified” previously announced that next season, its sixth, will be its final one.

Next week, the Tuesday 10 p.m. timeslot on FX will be occupied by new series “Fargo,” starring Billy Bob Thornton.
