RATINGS RAT RACE: 'Smallville' Up In Series Finale, 'Flashpoint' Rises In Week 2

CW’s veteran Smallville had a solid though not spectacular end of its 10-year run last night. The two-hour series finale of the young Superman series drew 3 million viewers, 1.3/5 in 18-49 and 1.2/4 in 18-34. That was up 50% in the 18-49 demo fromĀ Smallville‘s hourlong episode last week but not a series nor season high. It was Smallille‘s most-watched episode since October.

After a lackluster season premiere last week, CBS’ Flashpoint (1.3/5, 7.5 million) jumped 18% in its second airing. In its season finale, CSI: NY (1.5/5, 10.2 million) slipped a tenth from last week, while the season closer of Blue Bloods (1.7/5, 11.4 million) was up 13%. CBS won the night in 18-49 (1.5/5) and total viewers (9.7 million).

On the heels of its renewal earlier in the day, ABC’s Shark Tank (1.3/5, 5 million) ended its second season on a high note, up 8% in the demo and 11% in total viewers from last week. Fox aired a new Kitchen Nightmares (1.5/5), which won the 8 PM hour in 18-49, followed by a repeat.
