NBC’s The Mysteries of Laura closed Season 2 on Wednesday night with, yes, a deliciously dramatic, soul-crushing twist, but also 7.4 million total viewers and a 1.2 demo rating, rising 13 percent and two tenths to tie its season high in the demo and thus equal its best rating in a year (since Eric McCormack’s February 2015 visit).
Leading out of that, SVU (6.8 mil/1.6) ticked up a tenth, while Chicago P.D. (7.1 mil/1.5) dipped a tenth.
Elsewhere in the ratings….
CBS | Survivor (9.2 mil/2.2) rose 10 and 16 percent, Criminal Minds (9.2 mil/1.9) ticked up 7 percent and a tenth and a special CSI: Cyber outing (6.6 mil/1.2) was up two tenths from its most recent Sunday telecast and matched Code Black‘s week-ago finale.
FOX | Rosewood returned from hiatus to 3.6 million viewers and a 0.9 rating, dropping 28 and 40 percent from its midseason finale, obviously hitting series lows.
ABC | An 8 o’clock Goldbergs (7 mil/2.0) and Modern Family (8.2 mil/2.6) each rose a tenth. The Real O’Neals at 8:30 debuted to 6.3 mil/1.8, off a tenth from The Goldbergs‘ most recent airing in that slot; at 9:30, the Tuesday-bound freshman comedy drew 6.1 mil/1.9, matching black-ish‘s latest tally. American Crime (3.3 mil/0.8) dipped a tenth to match its season low.
