Ratings: ‘NCIS: Los Angeles’ improves for finale; ‘Reign’ steady; ‘Castle,’ ‘Blindspot’ slip

Everyone wants to see a show go out with a bang for the season, right? That’s a sentiment that we at least believe to be true, which is why we’re happy to report that some of the numbers went up for the “NCIS: Los Angeles” season 7 finale on Monday night.

The good news – The LL Cool J – Chris O’Donnell series managed to tie “Blindspot” for #1 in its timeslot with a 1.3 rating in the 18-49 demographic, which we imagine is just as much an indictment on the latter show’s decline as it is the former show’s gain given that the Jaimie Alexander series had some really impressive numbers earlier on this season.

The biggest winner of the night was “The Voice” with a 2.1, which is solid but far from the ratings that this show was getting for a few years. For those wondering why we are getting a new coaching panel with Miley Cyrus and Alicia Keys for the fall season, it’s more than likely an attempt to spark the ratings in a way that we’re not seeing now.

The bad news – We already mentioned “Blindspot,” and “Castle” had a very minuscule drop of its own yesterday down to a 1.0. It’s something that probably won’t even be a noticeable difference for many people out there.

Also, “Jane the Virgin” dropped down to a 0.3 in the demo following “Reign.” We don’t really consider that show sticking at a 0.3 good news or bad news. It’s good enough to keep the show around, mostly because it hails from CBS TV Studios and The CW likes to have a plurality of such shows on the air.
