According to Nielsen data, the Season 13 finale of “Grey’s” averaged a 2.0 rating in adults 18-49 and 7.7 million viewers at 8 p.m. The Season 6 finale of “Scandal” followed, airing back-to-back episodes at 9 (1.3, 5.5 million) and 10 (1.1, 5.1 million).

On CBS, repeats of “The Big Bang Theory” and “The Great Indoors” led into two new episodes of “The Amazing Race” both at 9 p.m. (0.9, 4.3 million) and 10 p.m. (0.7, 3.8 million).

For NBC, a repeat of “Law & Order: SVU” led into the two-part season finale of “The Blacklist,” which aired at 9 p.m. (0.9, 4.8 million) and 10 p.m. (0.9, 4.9 million).

On The CW, the two-part “Supernatural” season finale began at 8 (0.6 1.8 million) and was up in both key measures, with the second episode at 9 p.m. (0.6, 1.7 million) holding even.
