TV Ratings: 'Nashville' Says Goodbye, 'Wayward Pines' Returns
NBC won the final night of the 2015-16 TV season. Naturally a finale-heavy night, there was a notable boost for Law & Order: SVU. The drama topped the night for broadcast with an average 1.5 rating among adults 18-49, a 17 percent lift from the prior episode.
Heartbeat wrapped its brief run with a 0.7 rating in the key demo, and Chicago P.D. fetched a steady 1.4 rating.
The third night of CBS' Price Is Right primetime specials nabbed a 1.2 rating among adults 18-49 before back-to-back episodes of Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders.
ABC may have tied CBS for No. 2, but it marks the end of the network's third consecutive demo win for the May sweep. With the typical Wednesday comedy block already off the air, Finding Nemo led into the last-ever Nashville. The drama was steady, if slightly improved, with a 0.9 rating among adults 18-49.
Wayward Pines returned to Fox, in line with last summer's premiere, averaging a 0.9 rating among adults 18-49 and 3.1 million viewers. It followed the finale of Rosewood (0.8 adults).
On The CW, Arrow and Supernatural each fetched 0.8 ratings among adults 18-49 for their finales.
