TV Ratings: 'Raising Hope' Wraps Four-Season Run on Fox
Friday night brought the series finale of Raising Hope. The Fox comedy, which suffered a steep ratings drop in its fall 2013 move to Fridays, closed its four-season run with an average 0.6 rating among adults 18-49 and 1.58 million viewers over the course of a one-hour send-off.
Competition was stiff across the rest of the Big Four. ABC had new episodes of Last Man Standing (6.2 million, 1.3) and The Neighbors (3.9 million, 0.9), while Shark Tank (7.2 milion, 1.9) returned to originals for the night's top showing. 20/20 closed the night with a 1.5 in the demo.
CBS saw the return of Unforgettable. The summer drama, which moved from Sundays to Fridays, brought in a 1.0 adults rating. (That's down from last summer's 1.3-rated premiere in July). Hawaii Five-0 (1.3 adults) and Blue Bloods (1.5 adults) were also new, giving the network the first all-scripted Friday evening in some time.
On NBC, Dateline (1.2 adults) led into new outings for Grimm (1.3 adults) and Hannibal (0.8 adults).
