Tuesday Final Nationals: Michael Weatherly Departure from ‘NCIS’ in Season Finale Boosts Series to Four-Month Highs for CBS

CBS won Tuesday night among total viewers (12.76 million), as well leading among adults 25-54 (2.7 rating/8 share), led by the season finales of “NCIS” and “NCIS: New Orleans”. Anthony DiNozzo (Michael Weatherly) said goodbye to “NCIS” after a 14-year stint on the popular drama, lifting the program to its best total viewer and adults 18-49 figures since Jan. 5.

ESPN was No. 1 among adults 18-49 and adults 18-34 (approximate 2.1 rating each) with the “2016 NBA Draft Lottery” (congrats, Philadelphia 76ers) and “NBA Eastern Conference Final Game 1: Toronto Raptors at Cleveland Cavaliers”. Despite the network’s prime time win, Cavs’ blowout victory over the Raptors was at a 21 percent decrease from each of the year-ago Game 1s of a conference final on ESPN (Houston-Golden State) and TNT (Cleveland-Atlanta).

Megyn Kelly Presents” on Fox, featuring Donald Trump, Laverne Cox and Michael Douglas, did modestly in its debut, but its lead-out, the premiere of the romance reality series “Coupled” was barely sampled.
