The season finale of “Black-ish” (1.2, 5 million viewers) rose in total viewers. “Splitting Up Together” (1.0, 3.7 million) and “For the People” (0.5, 2 million) were even.

After last week’s farewell episode to Pauley Perrette, “NCIS” (1.2, 12.5 million) was down in both measures but was still the most-watched show of the night. The two-hour finale of “NCIS: New Orleans” (0.9, 9.5 million) was up from last week.

On The CW, “The Flash” (0.7,1.9 million) and “The 100” (0.4,1.1 million) were even.
