The Paramount Network’s “Yellowstone” closed out its first season in steady fashion Wednesday night, maintaining the same 0.4 of its previous episodes. The series – which is reportedly the highest-rated in Spike TV/Paramount Network’s history – also ticked up in total viewers from 2.13 to 2.37 million with its finale.

VH1’s “Black Ink Crew: Chicago” held onto the top spot of the night, despite falling back down one-tenth from the 0.6 it had scored a week ago to a 0.5 this time around. On Bravo, the first part of this season’s “The Real Housewives of New York City” reunion special saw the series climb up from a 0.4 to a 0.5. USA’s “The Sinner” held steady with another 0.3, as did “Suits” (0.3).

Outside of the top 25, the season 3 finale of OWN’s “Queen Sugar” was even with a 0.2.
