Leading out of a buncha sitcom reruns, the Season 2 finale of ABC’s American Crime on Wednesday drew 3.7 million total viewers and a 0.9 rating, rising 16 percent and a tenth week-to-week, commanding its best audience since Feb. 3.

Versus its freshman finale, the anthology series was down 12 percent and a tenth. All told, Season 2 averaged 3.7 mil/0.9 versus Season 1’s 5 mil/1.2.

TVLine readers gave the sophomore finale an average grade of “B-,” while Season 2 as a whole averaged an “A-.”

FOX | Rosewood (3.8 mil/0.9) added a few eyeballs while steady in the demo. Hell’s Kitchen (3.7 mil/1.2) ticked up in both measures.

    Loved American Crime so much. The way they ended it was perfection. Hope we get another season.

    good to know that “buncha” got through your spellcheck!

  3. Could someone tell me how it ended? I live in Germany and I’m not able to watch it yet!

    Survivor was so intense last night. Sad the two who went home, but loved the drama in this episode. Didn’t really watch anything else on a Wednesday. Looking forward to Arrow, Supernatural and Chicago PD returning. Sad Suits is done for another season.

    I wonder who wrote this or if anyone proof read it. The first sentence has the use of the slang ‘buncha’. The only people I ever heard using the slang have been small children. I have enjoyed both seasons of American Crime. It points out the issues with social media, prejudice, and the impact of both.
