Ratings: ‘Survivor’ Finale Hits All-Time Low

Football rules another Sunday

In its 27th edition, “Survivor” fell to the series’ lowest-rated finale ever.

According to preliminary numbers, Sunday’s “Survivor” earned a 2.5 rating in the advertiser-coveted 18-49 demographic. Last fall’s finale earned a 3.2. For what it’s worth, the spring finale got a 2.7.

Fox was first in ratings with a 4.1 rating/11 share in the key demo and second in total viewers with an average of 11 million. Though due to the nature of live sports, early numbers for Fox and NBC are approximate.
