Ratings: Amazing Race Ticks Up With Finale, Splits 3-Way Demo Win

Amazing Race Finale Ratings 2014

CBS’ The Amazing Race wrapped its 25th running on Friday night with 6.5 million total viewers and a 1.3 demo rating, up 10 percent and a tenth week-to-week but expectedly down from both its May (8.2 mil/1.8) and year-ago (9.2 mil/2.1) finales, which aired on Sundays.

Leading out of the Race, CBS’ star-studded Home for the Holidays special did 3.3 mil and a 0.5.

NBC’s Nick Cannon special premiered to 4.7 mil and a 0.9, while Dateline drew 6.7 million viewers (Friday’s largest audience) and a 1.3 rating, tying Amazing Race and a Shark Tank rerun for the nightly demo win.

    Any word yet on how well the final episode of The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson did?

    I don’t think The Amazing Race belongs on Fridays, but I don’t think Madam Secretary deserves to be cancelled to make way for it to come back to Sunday. I do think CBS should have one cycle in the fall and another in the Summer. Basically timeshare the slot with Undercover Boss.

      I just heard the news that the next cycle of Amazing Race will feature Jonathan Knight from NKOTB.

        Great bit of casting that Tran, the producers do get some gems from time to time. Did you also hear that Constantine is moving to 8pm when it returns in Jan? :)
