The season finale “The Big Bang Theory” was up over last week’s preliminary ratings and led Thursday’s race, but it was off a good amount from last season’s final episode.
The CBS comedy drew a 2.6 rating among adults 18-49, up from last week’s early 2.4 (and even with its final number). It’s off about 23 percent from the 3.4 for the Season 9 finale last year. The “Mom” finale matched last week’s 1.5, while “Life in Pieces” (1.1) ended its season down a tenth vs. last week. “The Amazing Race” held at 0.9.
ABC’s “Scandal” (1.4) was up a tenth week to week, while “Grey’s Anatomy” (1.8) rose 0.1 from last week’s early rating and equaled its final number. “The Catch” ended with a 0.6, on par with last week.
“Chicago Med” (1.2) and “The Blacklist” (0.9) each grew by a tenth. The finale of “Riverdale” (0.4) on The CW and “Supernatural” (0.5) are both even with last week’s early numbers (“Riverdale” adjusted down in the finals). “Masterchef Junior” slipped a tenth to 0.8 for FOX.

Rating: Estimated percentage of the universe of TV households (or other specified group) tuned to a program in the average minute. Ratings are expressed as a percent.
Fast Affiliate Ratings: These first national ratings are available at approximately 11 a.m. ET the day after telecast. The figures may include stations that did not air the entire network feed, as well as local news breaks or cutaways for local coverage or other programming. Fast Affiliate ratings are not as useful for live programs and are likely to differ significantly from the final results, because the data reflect normal broadcast feed patterns.
Share (of Audience): The percent of households (or persons) using television who are tuned to a specific program, station or network in a specific area at a specific time.
Time Shifted Viewing: Program ratings for national sources are produced in three streams of data – Live, Live +Same-Day and Live +7 Day. Time-shifted figures account for incremental viewing that takes place with DVRs. Live+SD includes viewing during the same broadcast day as the original telecast, with a cut-off of 3 a.m. local time when meters transmit daily viewing to Nielsen for processing. Live +7 ratings include viewing that takes place during the 7 days following a telecast.
