TV Ratings: 'NY Med' Wraps Lifted Second Season, 'Big Brother' Stays on Top
Thursday has been Big Brother's to lose this summer, and last night proved no exception.
The CBS series, steady with a 2.2 rating among adults 18-49, topped all other broadcast outings for the night. It also outperformed its most recent two airings on Sunday and Wednesday.
NBC's revived Last Comic Standing wrapped its season in line with the last one — which aired back in 2010. The series was also up a significant four-tenths of a point from its penultimate episode for an average 1.4 rating in the key demo. The series will return next year.
Preseason football preemptions mean that ABC is subject to adjustment, but as it stands The Quest (0.6 adults) was even with its last episode and Rookie Blue (1.0 adults) was slightly improved.
NY Med finished its second season with a 0.9 rating with adults under 50 — steady with the previous week and with the last season finale in 2012. Compared to its first run, NY Med was also up 25 percent this summer for an average audience of 6 million viewers.
Fox said so long, quite possibly for good, to Gang Related. The drama wrapped its first season with a steady 0.7 rating with adults 18-49.
