“Quantico” Ratings Rise Slightly For Season Finale, “OUAT” Dips In Second Hour

Quantico [ABC]

From a ratings standpoint, ABC’s “Quantico” did not end its first season with a bang. It did, however, narrowly top last week’s installment in both adults 18-49 and total viewership.

Per fast national data posted by Showbuzz, the season finale of “Quantico” drew a 1.0 adults 18-49 rating and 3.74 million total viewers. Last week’s installment was good for a 0.9 and 3.48 million

Barring a downward adjustment in the finals, ABC will be able to call this week’s episode the most-watched installment since March 13. That, of course, reflects the show’s quiet performance throughout the spring. Prior to the midseason hiatus, its viewership had never fallen below 4 million.

Earlier in the night, ABC offered the two-hour season finale of “Once Upon A Time.” The 7-8PM portion drew a 1.3 and 4.31 million, while the 8-9PM portion posted a 1.1 and 3.82 million.

Last week’s episode, which aired in the 8-9PM slot, managed a 1.1 and 3.75 million.

Positioned in between “OUAT” and “Quantico” was “The Family.” It scored a 0.8 and 3.29 million, figures that top the 0.7 and 2.56 million drawn last week.

“OUAT” and “Quantico” have both been renewed for next season. “The Family” will not be returning.
