NBC’s double-episode Timeless series finale on Thursday night clocked in with 3.22 million total viewers and a 0.6 rating, marking its biggest audience since the Season 1 finale while matching both Season’s 2’s average (2.5 mil/0.6) and its finale (2.4 mil/0.6) in the demo.
The first hour did about 3.5 mil and a 0.6, while the second drew 3 mil/0.6. (NBC notes that the due to a power outage in Philadelphia, the country’s No. 4 market didn’t tune in until 9:29 pm.) TVLine readers gave the closure-filled (…yet Season 3-teasing) finale an average grade of “A-.”
Of the night’s very spare other fresh fare:
CBS | Murphy Brown wrapped its revival run with 5.2 mil and a 0.7, dropping a few eyeballs week-to-week while holding onto its demo low. A Big Bang rerun delivered Thursday’s biggest audience (7 million).
ABC | The Great American Baking Show (5.8 mil/0.8) rose with its finale. This month’s encore of A Charlie Brown Christmas scored the night’s best rating (1.2).
