Update: Thursday’s “The Four: Battle For Stardom” received upward adjustments in the final ratings report.

While minor from a numerical standpoint, the adjustments still carry enormous significance: they establish the broadcast as the highest-rated and most-watched installment yet.

According to final national data posted by Showbuzz, Thursday’s “The Four” actually drew a 1.3 adults 18-49 rating. It averaged 3.76 million overall viewers.

The numbers top the 1.2 rating and 3.69 million viewer mark drawn last week.

They, moreover, rank as new series highs for the show.

The series premiere, which previously ranked as the most-watched installment, drew a 1.2 rating and 3.75 million viewers.

Season one of “The Four” concludes next Thursday.

For the third consecutive week, FOX’s “The Four: Battle For Stardom” enjoyed an episode-to-episode gain in live+same-day viewership.

According to fast national data posted by Showbuzz, Thursday’s “The Four” drew a 1.2 adults 18-49 rating and averaged 3.73 million overall viewers.

Last week’s episode drew the same 1.2 demo rating but a slightly lesser 3.69 million in viewership.

This week’s episode enjoyed a particularly big lift in the 9PM hour. After drawing a 1.1 rating and 3.42 million viewers at 8PM, it posted a 1 1.4 rating and 4.05 million viewership mark at 9PM.

This week’s episode, notably, aired days after sexual harassment allegations were levied against panelist Charlie Walk. Walk vehemently denies the claims but confirmed that he chose not to appear in next week’s finale (he appeared in this week’s episode, which was taped prior to the news).

While “The Four” is obviously not a ratings blockbuster (its viewership numbers also pale in comparison to those delivered by “The Voice”), its stability has been quite admirable. This week’s numbers (1.2, 3.73 million) essentially mirror those of the series premier (1.2, 3.75 million).
