Ratings: House Checks Out With a 16-Week High

Fox’s House wrapped up its eight-season run with a total of 8.7 million viewers watching the medical drama’s very final hour, while scoring a 2.9 demo rating. That marks a 30 percent increase week-to-week and a 16-week high, plus the total audience nearly matched the Season 6 finale (which drew 8.9 mil).

The retrospective teeing up the swan song opened the night with 6.15 million viewers and a 2.0 rating, placing third in the 8 o’clock hour.
