Over on CBS, The Amazing Race crossed its 22nd finish line with 9 million total viewers and a 2.3 demo rating, down a tick week-to-week and off 15 percent from its previous spring finale. The Mentalist‘s finale drew Sunday’s largest primetime crowd — 9.2 million — while scoring a 1.7 rating, up 6 percent and a tenth. (It also found an eerie way to reveal the Red John suspects.)
