Finale Ratings: Housewives Goes Out Big, Once Hits 10-Week High, Survivor at All-Time Low

Those Desperate Housewives cleaned up good with their series finale on Sunday night, delivering 11.1 million total viewers and a 3.2 demo ratings — season highs and the show’s best numbers since March 2011. (Because someone, like me, might wonder: DH debuted in October 2004 to 21.3 million total viewers.)

Teeing up that big kiss goodbye, Once Upon a Time‘s first season finale drew 9.5 mil and a 3.2, representing 10-week highs.

Alas, the news wasnt as good for Sunday’s other big finale: Survivor: One World (10.2 mil/2.8) was down 21 and 26 percent from last May’s final tribal council, and down 22 and 30 percent from the show’s most recent season ender (in December), hitting all-time lows for a finale.

A few other notes….

* The penultimate episode, ever, of Harry’s Law (7.6 mil/1.0) was up two tenths in the demo. Celebrity Apprentice (5.4 mil/1.8) was down 13 percent and a tenth.

* Over on Fox, The Simpsons (4 mil/1.9), Family Guy (5 mil/2.3) and the American Dad finale (4.1 mil/2.0) were all down, while Bob’s Burgers (3.63 mil/1.8) was flat.
