Ratings: “How To Get Away With Murder” Season Finale Falls In Hour Two, Tops Last Week’s Episode


Hour two of the season three “How To Get Away With Murder” finale drew a smaller audience than hour one.

Both hours, however, outperformed last week’s episode.

According to fast national data posted by Showbuzz, Thursday’s “HTGAWM” drew a 1.5 adults 18-49 rating and averaged 5.07 million total viewers in the 9PM hour. The 10PM portion posted a 1.4 and 4.84 million.

Last week’s hour-long broadcast, which aired in the 10PM slot, drew a 1.3 and 4.66 million.

This week’s “How To Get Away With Murder” did benefit from stronger lead-in support. Whereas last week’s episode followed “Scandal” (1.6, 6.06 million), this week’s season finale followed ABC’s stronger veteran “Grey’s Anatomy” (2.0, 7.61 million).

“Grey’s” fell slightly from last week’s episode, which drew a 2.1 in the demo and averaged 7.68 million viewers.
