The Good Wife Spinoff

Ratings: Penultimate Good Wife Draws 2nd-Largest Audience of Season

The penultimate episode of CBS’ The Good Wife this Sunday drew 9.1 million total viewers — its best audience since the season premiere — and a 1.0 rating, matching last week’s demo.

Bookending the expiring drama, Madam Secretary (9.9 mil/1.0) was steady and Elementary (5.5 mil/0.8) ticked up.

Elsewhere in the ratings….

ABC | Once Upon a Time (3.8 mil/1.2), The Family (3 mil/0.8) and Quantico (3.3 mil/1.0) were all steady in the demo, though Quantico ticked down to its smallest audience ever.

NBC | Little Big Shots (9.9 mil/1.6) continued to get littler yet still dominated the night. With a fresh lead-in, Carmichael Show (4.6 mil/1.0) and Crowded (3.2 mil/0.8) both ticked up.

FOX | Coverage of the American Country Music Countdown Country Music Awards Countdown Music did 3.8 mil/1.0 (vs. the 2 mil/0.9 that last Sunday’s largely original line-up averaged). Update: OK, apparent the ACMCCMACMs have aired before, in 2014, and this year’s was up, like, 10 percent.
