Last night’s finale scored a 1.3 rating among adults 18-49 and drew 8.6 million total viewers, level with part 1 in terms of rating, but down in total viewership. Monday’s episode drew 9.07 million total viewers, a season high for the singing show. However, that 1.3, coupled with a 1.0 for a “Voice” recap in the 8 p.m. slot, helped NBC to an overall win on the night.
Elsewhere, the midseason finale of “Empire” came in even at a 0.7 and just under 2.6 million total viewers on Fox. Earlier on, “The Resident” ticked down from last episode, dropping to a 0.7 rating and 3.8 million total viewers.
Over on CBS, two out of the network’s three dramas were from their previous showings. “NCIS” dropped 10% from a 1.1 last time around to a 1.0, but stayed stable in total viewers with 11 million. “FBI” came in at a 0.8 rating, down from a 0.9 last episode, and shed around 400,000 total viewers to end up with 8.4 million. Meanwhile, “NCIS: New Orleans” bucked the trend by leaping to a season high 0.9 rating and 7 million total viewers.
The CW’s “Dogs of the Year” special scored a 0.2 rating and drew just under 1 million pairs of eyeballs, followed by an “Arrow” rerun which scored a 0.1.
