As we near the end of the May sweeps, we are seeing most of the 2011-12 shows on their last legs — but at least some of them are deciding to go out with a bang rather than a whimper.
NBC – “Harry’s Law” fans may hate it, but the repeat of “America’s Got Talent” (1.0) scored higher than some of their episodes have in recent weeks in the 18-49 demographic. Meanwhile, “The Celebrity Apprentice” rose to a 2.2 rating for its two-hour finale.
Fox – “The Simpsons” and “Family Guy” each rose two-tenths for their season finales, and scored 2.1 and 2.5 ratings, respectively. “The Cleveland Show” was even with its 1.3 rating earlier in the night, and the same can be said for “Bob’s Burgers” with its 1.8.
CBS – The only thing really of note for The Eye was the new Jesse Stone TV movie starring Tom Selleck, and he continued his reign as one of the oldest-skewing actors in TV. Despite having almost 13 million viewers, the show drew just a 1.2 rating in the demo (which is around 1.5 million people within this age range).
ABC – We will have numbers from the 2012 Billboard Music Awards when they are available. (Update: The show drew a solid 2.7 rating, but this was down versus last year’s show.)
