Ratings: Parks Pops With Finale, Agent Carter Dips, NCIS Slips, POI Ticks Up

Parks Recreation Series Finale Ratings

NBC’s Parks and Recreation wrapped its run on Tuesday night with 4.2 million total viewers and a 1.6 demo rating (per finals), surging 50 and 33 percent week-to-week as well as up sharply from its previous finale (2.7 mil/1.0).

In total audience, Parks commanded its largest crowd since January 2012. TVLine readers gave the finale an average grade of a very high “A.”

Opening the Peacock’s night, The Voice (14.1 mil/3.9) slipped two tenths from its Monday premiere but was up two tenths from Season 7’s Tuesday launch.


ABC | Facing stiffer competition with The Voice now in the mix, Fresh off the Boat (5.8 mil/1.8) dropped a few eyeballs and a tenth in the demo; Repeat After Me (3.9 mil/1.3) dipped. Agent Carter‘s finale (4 mil/1.3) dipped in audience plus a tenth in the demo, tying its series low. (That said, ABC notes that Agent Carter improved upon last winter’s S.H.I.E.L.D. hiatus programming by 43 and 25 percent.) Forever (4.7 mil/1.0) was flat.

FOX | MasterChef Junior’s season finale (4.8 mil/1.6) slipped 13 percent and two tenths, while New Girl (2.9 mil/1.3) ticked down and Mindy (2.3 mil/1.1) was flat.

CBS | NCIS (17.4 mil/2.3) dipped 4 percent and three tenths, New Orleans (13.7 mil/1.9) ticked down a tenth in the demo, and Person of Interest (9.6 mil/1.7) inched up 4 percent and a tenth.
