Ratings: ABC’s ‘Once Upon a Time’ Season Finale Ticks Up Ahead of Series Reboot

NBC wins night as Fox’s “Miss Universe” pageant declined year over year

NBC won a quiet Sunday night in ratings with new episodes of “Little Big Shots,” “Chicago Justice” and “Shades of Blue.”

Fox’s “Miss USA” pageant garnered only a 0.8 rating in the advertiser-coveted 18-49 demographic and 2.0 total viewers, which was down 27 percent from last year.

On ABC, the two-hour season finale of “Once Upon a Time” ticked up week over week with a 0.9 rating and 3 million viewers overall. The ratings for the show have been enough to garner it a Season 7 renewal, albeit one that’s considered more of a “reboot” with most of the cast exiting.

Overall, NBC was first in ratings with a 1.1 rating and was second in total viewers with an average of 5.3 million, according to preliminary numbers. While “Little Big Shots” stayed even week over week, “Chicago Justice” ticked up with a 1.1 rating in the advertiser coveted 18-49 demographic and 5.6 million viewers, while “Shades of Blue” was up in both ratings and total viewers, with a 0.9 and 4.7 million viewers.

CBS was second in ratings with a 0.9 but first in viewers with 7.3 million. “NCIS: LA” came second in ratings in its timeslot with a 1.2 but first in total viewers with 9.4 million, which is up from last week. “Madam Secretary” was also up week over week with a 0.8 rating and 8.2 million viewers, winning its timeslot.

ABC was third in ratings with a 0.8 and in viewers with 2.8 million. Aside from the “Once” finale, it aired a new episode of “Match Game” at 10 p.m., which garnered a 0.6 rating and 2.4 million viewers.

Fox, which aired only the pageant, was fourth in ratings with a 0.6 and 2.3 million viewers.
