What follows are the metered market household results by half-hour for the four broadcast networks for Sunday, February 25, 2018:

Ratings Breakdown:
The 2018 Winter Olympics on NBC concluded with an estimated 9.1 rating/15 share in the household overnights from 8-10:30 p.m. ET. That led into episode two of new sitcom “A.P. Bio” at a dominant 4.6/ 7 in the 10:30 p.m. half-hour. A.P. Bio” debuts in its regularly scheduled Thursday 8:30 p.m. time period (out of “Superstore”) this week. An additional episode will air at 9:30 p.m. that evening.

Earlier in the evening on NBC was Olympic Gold at a second-place 5.0/ 9 in households from 7-8 p.m., which trailed competing “60 Minutes” on CBS (#1: 6.4/11 at 7 p.m.) by 22 percent.

In season finale news on CBS was “Big Brother – Celebrity Edition” at a second-place 3.6/ 6 from 8-10 p.m., which bested competing “The Women Tell All Edition” of ABC’s “The Bachelor” (#3: 3.1/ 5) by 16 percent. While nothing is officially confirmed, chances of a new celebrity edition of “Big Brother” next season is likely given its competitive performance opposite The Winter Olympics.

Leading out of “The Bachelor” special was the season finale of “Shark Tank,” which ABC completely wasted this season, at a modest 2.3/ 4 at 10 p.m. (#2). “Shark Tank” needs to move back to where it belongs, on Friday, next season.

Next Sunday ABC will feature “The 90th Annual Academy Awards,” hosted by Jimmy Kimmel. The following Sunday is the return of “American Idol.”
