The winter finale of NBC’s State of Affairs on Monday drew 4.6 million total viewers and a 1.0 demo rating (per finals), dropping 26 and 33 percent to series lows.
This marked the freshman drama’s first foray sans The Voice for a lead-in. (Instead, NBC opened its night with a two-hour SNL Christmas special, which did 4.5 mil/1.4.)
That said: Interesting new wrinkle regarding the shooting of Charlie’s fiance!
Elsewhere on this Christmas Eve eve eve:
* ABC’s Great Christmas Light Fight (5.9 mil/1.3) added some eyeballs but ticked down in the demo.
* CBS’ Mike & Molly (8.5 mil/1.7) rose 8 percent in audience but dipped a tenth in the demo to match its series low.
A Big Bang rerun (8.6 mil/1.7) drew broadcast TV’s largest audience and tied Mike & Molly for the demo win.
