In the latest TV ratings, CBS’ Hawaii Five-0 wrapped its 10-year run with 9.35 million total viewers — up 11 percent from last week to mark its largest audience since Jan. 12, 2018 — and a 0.9 demo rating, holding steady to match its season high.

TVLine readers gave both the finale and Season 10 as a whole an average grade of “A-,” while 85 percent were happy with the very final scene.

THE CW | Charmed (620K/0.1) dipped in the demo to match its series low, while Dynasty (320K/0.1) was steady.

FOX | Friday Night SmackDown (2.4 mil/0.6) dipped in the demo.

NBC | The Blacklist (4.7 mil/0.6) was steady.

The Live+Same Day numbers reported in our daily-ish ratings column do not reflect a show’s overall performance, given the increases in delayed playback via DVR and streaming platforms. These Live+Same Day numbers instead are used to illustrate any trends or high/low superlatives. Happy Fun Ball may stick to certain types of skin.
