UPDATE: In updated nationals, CBS’ “Supergirl” was revised upward to a 1.3 in 18-49 to merely match its low instead of setting one with its finale. All three CBS shows ended up matching their valleys of the season.

There were no changes in the finals for any other broadcast program on the night, meaning that NBC’s “The Voice” and ABC’s “Dancing With the Stars” hit Monday lows for the season.

On cable, the night’s top programs in 18-49 were TNT’s NBA playoff game between Houston and Golden State (2.0 rating in 18-49, 4.42 million total viewers), VH1’s “Love and Hip-Hop Atlanta” (1.5 in 18-49, 2.82 million viewers overall) and the earlier NBA playoff game on TNT between Dallas and Oklahoma City (1.4 in 18-49, 3.20 million). 

AMC’s season finale of “Better Call Saul” averaged a 0.85 rating in 18-49 and 2.26 million viewers overall. This marked a four-week high in the demo and a nine-week high in total viewers (best since the premiere drew 2.57 million). For all of television, it was the 10 p.m. hour’s top series in both men 18-34 (1.0) and men 18-49 (1.1).

The spring’s general downward trajectory of ratings continued Monday as top shows “The Voice” and “Dancing With the Stars” hit season lows — the latter plummeting one week after spiking to a high — while CBS’ “Supergirl” didn’t see any kind of ratings bounce with its finale..

According to preliminary estimates from Nielsen, “Supergirl” (1.2/4 in 18-49, 6.2 million viewers overall) was down a tenth from last week, which had matched the rookie show’s low, though it has a chance to edge up in the finals; in total viewers, it was up a smidge. CBS has yet to renew any of its first-year series, though most insiders expect “Supergirl,” the network’s top new drama in adults 18-49, will be back for a second season.

CBS followed “Supergirl” last night with “Scorpion” (1.5/5 in 18-49, 8.2 million viewers overall) and “NCIS: Los Angeles” (1.2/4 in 18-49, 7.7 million viewers overall), both of which were also down a tenth week to week. The latter continues to finish closely behind timeslot leader “Blindspot” in both 18-49 and 25-54 adter the NBC program enjoyed sizable advantages last fall.

NBC won the night in demos behind timeslot-winning performances from both “The Voice” (2.2/7 in 18-49, 9.9 million viewers overall) and “Blindspot” (1.3/4 in 18-49, 5.6 million viewers overall), both down a tick from last week (though “Voice” held steady with last week’s prelim score). Last week’s “Blindspot” delivered the biggest Monday lifts from “same-day” to “live plus-3,” rising 0.92 in 18-49 (1.37 to 2.29) and by more than 3 million total viewers (5.5 million to 8.6 million).

One week after spiking to a 2016 high with its popular Disney-themed night of dances, ABC’s “Dancing With the Stars” took a tumble (1.6/5 in 18-49, 11.0 million viewers overall), down 0.4 (20%) to a season low; it still placed second for its 8-10 p.m. timeslot in demos and first in total viewers. And at 10 p.m., “Castle” (1.0/3 in 18-49, 6.0 million viewers overall) was down a tenth from last week and again placed third among the broadcasters in 18-49.

At CW, the season finale of “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend” delivered typical numbers (0.3/1 in 18-49, 0.8 million viewers overall); the show has been very low-rated all season, but its acclaim garnered it a second-season renewal by the network. “Jane the Virgin,” which wraps its second season next month, was also about average last night (0.4/1 in 18-49, 0.9 million viewers overall). Last week’s “Jane” jumped 74% in 18-49 rating in L+3 (0.38 to 0.66).

Fox’s “Gotham” (1.2/4 in 18-49, 3.7 million viewers overall) was steady week to week, pulling into an 18-49 tie with “Supergirl.” And “Lucifer” (1.3/4 in 18-49, 3.9 million viewers overall) bounced back 0.2 from its low of last week. In “live plus-3” for last week, “Lucifer” was the biggest percentage gainer among the Big Four networks, rising 71% from its same-day 18-49 average (1.06 to 1.81).
