Ratings: ‘The Good Wife’ season finale, ‘The Amazing Race 20’ hit lows

A weak conclusion to the season.

Despite “The Good Wife” wrapping up its third season in spectacular fashion on Sunday night, this did not lead to the show pulling some stellar numbers by any means. As a matter of fact, the drama was a part of a CBS lineup that posted lows across the board.

CBS – While “The Good Wife” scored a season low with a 1.7 rating in the 18-49 demographic, “The Amazing Race” before it posted a low of its own in a 2.2. (One demo point is the equivalent of 1.28 million viewers within the 18-49 range.) “NYC 22” continues its quick slide towards cancellation, dropping even further to post only a 1.2 demo score.

ABC – “Once Upon a Time” was even with its preliminary numbers last week with a 2.9 rating (which was tops on the night). Meanwhile, “Desperate Housewives” fell vs. its last new episode to a 2.5 rating despite the series finale coming up, while “GCB” was actually up versus its low numbers two weeks ago with a 1.9 rating.

NBC – “Harry’s Law” continued to face bad news — while 7 million viewers is more than just about any scripted show on the schedule, the rating in the demo was still a woeful 0.9. “The Celebrity Apprentice” went down below a 2.0 rating yet again this season, posting only a 1.9 for its two-hour episode.

Fox – For Fox, the numbers were really all across the board. Darren Criss failed to help “The Cleveland Show” at all as it posted just a 1.5 rating at 7:30. (The 9:30 episode fared better with a 1.9.) With “The Simpsons” and “Bob’s Burgers” staying steady with 2.3 and 1.9 ratings, “Family Guy” surged up to score second place on the night with a 2.8.

With some more finales coming up soon, stay tuned — we’ll have more ratings information as it breaks.
