Ratings: ‘Will & Grace’ Revival Season Finale Steady With Last Week – But Nowhere Near Fall Debut

Read on: TheWrapTheWrap

It looks like “Will & Grace” fans weren’t as interested in finding out how the first season of NBC’s old/new hit ended as they were in tuning in to see how it started.

On Thursday, the 9 p.m. season-closer of the revival grabbed a 0.9/4 in the advertiser-coveted 18-49 demographic and an average of 3.6 million total viewers, according to overnight data from Nielsen.

Back in October, the return of the sitcom was the most-viewed scripted show of the night, with 10.2 million viewers and a 3.0 rating/11 share in the key demo in those same preliminary numbers.

However, the “Will & Grace” Season 1 finale — or Season 9, whatever — did remain steady with last week’s installment, which had a 0.9/4 and slipped slightly in viewers to 3.7 million.

And CBS was No. 1 in both ratings and total viewers, thanks to its ever-steady “Big Bang Theory.”

CBS was first in ratings with a 1.3 rating/6 share in the advertiser-coveted 18-49 demographic and in total viewers with an average of 8.2 million, according to Nielsen data. At 8 p.m., “Big Bang Theory” scored a 2.3/11 and 12.7 million viewers. At 8:30, “Young Sheldon” hit a 1.9/8 and 11.6 million viewers. “Mom” at 9 got a 1.4/5 and 8.5 million viewers. At 9:30, “Life in Pieces” managed a 0.9/4 and 6.2 million viewers. “S.W.A.T.” at 10 had a 0.8/3 and 5.1 million viewers.

ABC was second in ratings with a 1.2/5 and in viewers with 5.2 million. “Grey’s Anatomy” at 8 took a 1.6/7 and 6.9 million viewers. At 9, “Station 19” saw a 1.0/4 and 5.1 million viewers. “Scandal” at 10 settled for a 0.9/4 and 3.9 million viewers.

NBC was third in ratings with a 0.8/3 and in viewers with 3.6 million.

Fox was fourth in ratings with a 0.7/3 and in viewers with 2.6 million.

The CW and Univision tied for fifth in ratings with a 0.5/2.
