Ratings: Empire Season 2 Finale Delivers 6-Week Highs

Fox’s Empire wrapped its sophomore run on Wednesday with 10.8 million total viewers and a 4.0 demo rating, rising 10 and 8 percent to hit six-week highs. Versus its freshman finale (17.6 mil/6.9), however, it was obviously down sharply.

Opening Fox’s night, Rosewood (4.7 mil/1.4) was up 9 and 27 percent to match its best numbers since Dec. 2.

Elsewhere in the ratings….

THE CW | Arrow (2.15 mil/0.8) and Supernatural (1.92 mil/0.7) were steady.

CBS | Survivor (9.6 mil/2.1) was steady week-to-week and off just a tenth from its previous finale. The reunion show (6.8 mil/1.5) was down two tenths from last season.

NBC | Heartbeat (3.8 mil/0.7) and Chicago P.D. (6.9 mil/1.4) were steady, while SVU (5.6 mil/1.2) slipped 11 percent and two tenths.

ABC | The Goldbergs (6.3 mil/1.8) dipped a tenth while everything else was flat.

    Can I nominate Sara Hyland for performer of the week or honorable mention she didn’t say much but last nights episode of Modern Family when she just have that look and said to Andy “what he said” after Phil’s speech kinda broke my heart she is so great on the show even if she hasn’t been on that much this season

    Good that Empire rose last night. Yes they are way down but Empire got interrupted this season and ended later( and some may feel didn’t do as well creatively). Still I doubt FOX is unhappy. FOX should also be happy with Rosewoods numbers, but they will most likely never see these ratings again Even I know Bones wont help them in the fall. The Middle may have been flat but to stay so steady against Survivor is pretty good

    My expectations were low but this season of survivor was surprisingly good because of the contestants (last season was one of the best season) but I was disappointed with who won yesterday :(
    Still can’t believe some of the juries would vote like that.
    In my opinion ;)

    I don’t understand those Empire ratings. Can you make a chart? Is it still holding onto audience or not?

    black-ish is the best thing network tv has to offer on Wednesday nights. The cast is sensational and the writing is top notch! Deserves better ratings, honestly….and would probably get them if it weren’t in “Empire’s time slot.”

    May want to fix Arrow’s ratings. It apparently got 1.94 million and a 0.7 demo.
