“True Detective” closed out its third season in fairly solid fashion Sunday night.
The HBO crime anthology series raked in a 0.4 rating in the adults 18-49 demo and 1.38 million viewers with its season finale, up a tenth from its penultimate episode and tying its second-best rating of the season.
Meanwhile, without the “NBA All-Star Game” to compete with this time around, AMC’s “The Walking Dead” (predictably) took the night’s no. 1 spot, and matched its previous episode’s 1.7. “Talking Dead” came second with a 0.6, also steady with its broadcast from the week before. E!’s live pre-Oscars red carpet coverage rounded out the night’s top 4 with 0.6 and 0.5 ratings.
Elsewhere, Showtime’s “Shameless” fell from a 0.3 to a season low 0.2, and HBO’s “Last Week Tonight” grabbed a 0.3 with 840,000 viewers.
