TV Ratings: ‘Empire’ Finale Breaks All Records

Mega-hit Empire ended its maiden season with two episodes on Wednesday. The two hours combined for a 6.4 adult 18-49 rating and 16.5 million viewers. Empire has gained viewers every single week it was on, an unprecedented record on TV. That’s TEN WEEKS straight. Amazing.

The first hour got a 6.0 adult 18-49 rating and 15.5 million viewers.

The second hour got a 6.8 adult 18-49 rating and 17.5 million viewers.

It literally grew for every episode in viewers. Stunning.

Survivor got a 2.3 rating and 9.5 million viewers.

Arrow got a 0.8 rating and 2.37 million viewers.

Supernatural got a 0.7 rating and 1.91 million viewers.

The series premiere of CSI: Cyber got a 1.4 rating and 7.94 million viewers.

OK, here is the TV ratings number dump… I am so excited:
