Following the one-hour retrospective, the actual finale did 1.5 mil and a 0.8, up 42 and 33 percent week-to-week and marking GG‘s best numbers since April 2011.

Elsewhere on Monday:

* The Voice‘s final performance night (13.2 mil/4.1) was up 7 and 8 percent week-to-week and up 23 and 8 percent from last season’s final Monday sing-off. Leading out of that, a sneak preview of the First Family comedy 1600 Penn retained 7.2 mil and a 2.3, falling shy of The New Normal‘s aprés-Voice preview. Take It All capped NBC’s night with 4.5 mil/1.5, down versus last Monday but up from its most recent, Thursday installment.

* How I Met Your Mother‘s monumental hour-long fall finale drew 8.7 mil and a 3.4, up two tenths in the demo. 2 Broke Girls (10.2 mil/3.5) ticked down two tenths, while Mike & Molly (10.8 mil/3.3) rose from its last outing and won its half-hour in the demo. Hawaii Five-0 (10.3 mil/2.4) held steady to win its time period on both counts.

    So sad that Gossip Girl is over! The finale was perfect and reminded me why I fell in love with this show. I’m really going to miss it.

    Its sad ratings for Gossip Girl, it used to get over 2 mil views and at least a 1.5 rating. A testament to what went wrong with the show.

  5. Meg says:

    I watched Hawaii Five-0 and it was awesome, as always.

  6. Georgia Madman says:

    So GLAD Gossip Girl is over so I don’t have to read the endless musings about this trashy show.

    Now if GLEE could die an un-natural death, my lreading pleasure would increase immeasurably.

    2 Broke Girls was hilarious…I don’t know how it could have dipped

  8. Jared says:

    2 Broke Girls is the highest rated scripted series on Monday nights. That show isn’t going ANYWHERE anytime soon.

    Gossip Girl’s ratings went down in season 4, even further down in seasons 5 and 6. It’s nice to see the fans return for the finale. I really enjoyed the fact that Derena and Chair married, Chair having a baby, and the reveal of GG (I was shocked!). I was disappointed that Rufus didn’t remarry Lily, but I was alright with Lily marrying her ex in the end, and it looked like Rufus had a new girlfriend/wife, and everyone was getting along.
