The season finale of “The Masked Singer” dominated the Live +3 ratings for the week of Feb. 25, but it didn’t post the week’s biggest gains.

The 2-part season finale of the FOX singing-competition series took the week’s top 2 spots in the adults 18-49 demo, and grew by 0.7 and 0.6 points to 4.3 and 3.2 ratings, respectively. However, it was ABC’s “Grey’s Anatomy” that posted the week’s biggest gain in the demo, climbing up from its initial 1.6 to a 2.6 rating (+1.0, +63%).

ABC’s “The Good Doctor” scored the week’s biggest boost in total viewers as well, with an additional 4.60 million (+72%) tuning in after three days of delayed viewing. Despite that, CBS’ “NCIS” posted the week’s largest L+3 audience with 14.49 million viewers (+2.71 million, +23%).
