ABC’s Modern Family wrapped its 11-season run on Wednesday night with 7.4 million total viewers — its largest audience since January 2017 — and a 1.6 rating, its best demo number since September 2018. TVLine readers gave the big send-off an average grade of “B+.”
Bookending the hour-long finale, the A Modern Farwell special did 6.7 mil and a 1.3, while Jimmy Kimmel’s Who Wants to Be a Millionaire revival drew 6.3 mil/1.1 (and a TVLine reader grade of “B”) — though 71 percent of readers prefer Regis as host.
NBC | Chicago Med (9 mil/1.2) delivered Wednesday’s largest audience but slipped two tenths in the demo, while Fire (8.9 mil/1.2, read recap) and P.D. (7.9 mil/1.1) each dipped one tenth.
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.
