Broadcast Live +7 ratings: ‘Blindspot’ leads for May 23-29 as summer slowdown begins

blindspot-l7-ratings-may-23-16

The season finale of “Blindspot” was the top gainer in the Live +7 ratings for the week of May 23-29, amid a much smaller field than usual.

The NBC show added 1.2 points in adults 18-49 (1.3 to 2.5) and 3.84 million viewers to top both measures. The week included the final three days of the regular TV season and the start of summer, meaning there was much less original programming than a typical in-season week.

The Season 2 premiere of “Wayward Pines” on FOX was the percentage-gain leader in both adults 18-49 and viewers. It doubled its same-day 18-49 rating, going from 0.9 to 1.8.

The Top 25 gainers (including ties) in the Live +7 ratings for May 23-29, 2016 are below. The rankings include first-run, regular series only, not repeats.
