‘Burn Notice’ Wraps On A Season High

About 5 million people tuned in to the premiere telecast of the Burn Notice series finale last night at 9 PM — the USA Network show’s biggest audience in more than a year. That’s 1 million+ viewers stronger than the drama series’ penultimate episode last week. About 1.6 million of the crowd who came to say goodbye after seven seasons were 18-49 year olds. It was the night’s second-most-watched cable program, behind only NFL Network’s New England Patriots vs New York Jets football game — that clocked 8.8 million viewers. In its time slot, Burn Notice‘s swan-song snagged a larger audience than anything on broadcast TV except CBS’ Big Brother. Burn Notice is one of only three USA series to pass the 100-episode mark that makes syndicators so happy, putting it in company with Monk and Psych.
