American Idol‘s 13th coronation ceremony on Wednesday night was watched by 10.5 million total viewers and scored a 2.6 demo rating (per finals) — rising week-to-week yet down 25 and 28 percent from the Season 12 finale.
Per finals, Idol matched Survivor, which concluded its Brains Vs. Brawn Vs. Beauty edition with 9.6 mil and a 2.6 rating, tying its year ago demo. The reunion show: 7.1 mil/1.9.
ABC’s Modern Family commanded the largest audience (10.5 mil) and demo rating (3.7) on this final night of May Sweeps, matching its previous finale.
Opening ABC’s night, The Middle’s hour-long Disney World folly did 7.5 mil/2.1, right on part with its year-ago finale. Leading out of Mod Fam, Mixology (4 mil/1.3) was flat, while Motive‘s Stateside Season 2 premiere (4 mil/0.9) was up a bit from its freshman finale yet down sharply from its debut (6.5 mil/1.3).
Over on NBC, Revolution‘s series finale (4.2 mil/1.1) added a few eyeballs but dipped a tenth in the demo to tie its series low; versus the Season 2 opener, the show fell 39 percent. Law & Order: SVU‘s finale (6.3 mil/1.6) was up in viewers/steady in the demo, and down just a tenth from its previous closer. Chicago PD‘s freshman finale (6.2 mil/1.6) ticked up a tenth week-to-week.
The CW’s The 100 (1.42 mil/0.5) slipped 18 and 16 percent now sans a proper Arrow lead-in.
