“Animal Kingdom” closed out its third season in steady fashion.
The TNT crime series scored a 0.4 rating in adults 18-49 with its finale episode last night, even with its season average, and steady in total viewers week-to-week with 1.37 million. Meanwhile, USA’s “WWE Smackdown” led the top 25 again, up a tenth from its previous 0.7 to a 0.8. MTV’s “The Challenge: Final Reckoning” maintained a 0.5 for the second week in a row. USA’s “Miz & Mrs.” was even with another 0.5 as well.
On Bravo, “Below Deck Mediterranean” took a minor hit, falling one-tenth to a 0.5. OWN’s “The Haves and the Have Nots” also dipped a tenth, falling from the 0.5 it had scored a week ago to a 0.4, while the first season finale of “Love Is___” held onto its previous 0.3. TBS’ “Wrecked” similarly maintained the same 0.4 as its prior episode.
Outside of the top 25, TV Land’s “Younger” (0.2) stayed steady after experiencing a small ratings slip last week.
