Gossip Girl had a bon voyage, all things being relative, as its two-hour series finale event night averaged 1.4 million total viewers and a 0.7 rating, giving The CW its best Monday night since Jan. 30 and Dec. 5, 2011, respectively.
Following the one-hour retrospective, the actual finale did 1.5 mil and a 0.8, up 42 and 33 percent week-to-week and marking GG‘s best numbers since April 2011.
Elsewhere on Monday:
* The Voice‘s final performance night (13.2 mil/4.1) was up 7 and 8 percent week-to-week and up 23 and 8 percent from last season’s final Monday sing-off. Leading out of that, a sneak preview of the First Family comedy 1600 Penn retained 7.2 mil and a 2.3, falling shy of The New Normal‘s aprés-Voice preview. Take It All capped NBC’s night with 4.5 mil/1.5, down versus last Monday but up from its most recent, Thursday installment.
* How I Met Your Mother‘s monumental hour-long fall finale drew 8.7 mil and a 3.4, up two tenths in the demo. 2 Broke Girls (10.2 mil/3.5) ticked down two tenths, while Mike & Molly (10.8 mil/3.3) rose from its last outing and won its half-hour in the demo. Hawaii Five-0 (10.3 mil/2.4) held steady to win its time period on both counts.
