The Vampire Diaries Ratings Finale

Ratings: Vampire Diaries Ends Its Run With Best Numbers in Over a Year

The Vampire Diaries ended its run on Friday night with 1.19 million total viewers and a 0.5 demo rating, ticking up to 58- and 54-week highs. With Women 18-34, The CW notes the drama scored its best rating in 15 months (since Dec. 10, 2015).

Opening the network’s night, TVD‘s retrospective special did 1.14 mil/0.4.

Over on CBS, MacGyver‘s crossover with Hawaii Five-0 (8 mil/1.0) rose 15 percent in audience but actually dipped in the demo. Five-0 then did 9.3 mil and a 1.1, ticking up in both measures. Blue Bloods (9.4 mil/1.1) was steady, delivering the night’s biggest audience and tying H50 and ABC’s Dateline for the demo win.

Elsewhere….

ABC | Last Man Standing (5.8 mil/1.0) slipped two tenths, matching its series low in the demo; Dr. Ken (4.1 mil/0.8) also ticked down.

NBC | Grimm (4.24 mil/0.8) was again rock steady in the demo while inching up to its best audience since Jan. 27.

FOX | Leading out of a Rosewood rerun, Sleepy Hollow (1.78 mil/0.4) hit and matched series lows.

    The MacGyver-Hawaii Five O crossover episode was awesome last night. Wish CBS should do a crossover between MacGyver and Scorpion.

    Of course people watched finale for different reasons. But all and all, jump in ratings doesn’t surprise me. That’s what happens when you give “sort of” to Klaroline and 99% chance of endgame for Delena before the finale. Absolutely EPIC finale, I LOVED Gilberts reunion, John and Jenna especially! And Jo with Alaric, I was crying through most of the finale. And brothers reunion at the end, it’s all just superb! I guess we still don’t know future of Caroline and Alaric, I’m glad they didn’t tie Bonnie to the ghost. I think she deserves to live a full life first. I still can’t believe Julie and her writers actually repeated their promise “However long it takes”, I thought Stefan would die and Klaus just sends condolences letter (not very romantic). But this line again after 4 seasons, this is so much more than just “sort of”. Especially taking into account that in the past the writers tried to take this back and say that a lot has changed since Klaus said it. But here we go, that line repeated in the TVD FINALE! I can go back and watch TVD again, knowing that it ends just like I wish it would.

    Good for Vampire Diaries to go out so well. Nice for Grimm for staying steady, not great numbers but steady. Poor Sleepy Hollow but not surprised at how low its gone. Surprised the CBS crossover didn’t do better but they still have a decent audience
