It came awfully close but NCIS avoided going below a 2.0 demo for the first time. The season finale was up eight tenths in viewers and even in the demo for a fourth straight week. It had to adjust up multiple times after preliminary 1.9 demos at the end of the season but it's still one of the few shows that has never dipped below that threshold. At 9pm, the season finale of NCIS: New Orleans was up two tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo. A special Tuesday episode of CSI: Cyber skewed older than Wednesday as the total viewers was up but the demo was down. Over on NBC, The Voice was up a tenth in viewers and the demo at 8pm. At 9pm, the season finale of Undateable was two episodes bundled together and it was down two tenths in viewers and even in the demo from last week's live episode. At 10pm, the season finale of Chicago Fire was down a tenth in viewers and the demo for its worst performance since February.

On ABC, a second week of Tuesday results on Dancing with the Stars was down a tenth in viewers and up a tenth in the demo from last week. Dancing and The Voice finales will face off next week. At 9pm, the two hour season finale of Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. went out with a whimper. It was down six tenths in viewers and two tenths in the demo for a series low. After several steady weeks, this was a disappointing finale. Finally on FOX, Hell's Kitchen was down half a million viewers and even in the demo. Then, American Idol had its performance finale night and the results were disastrous. It fell to another series low with an almost unfathomable 1.3 demo. Remember when it was a big deal that Survivor or The Voice would beat Idol? Well now, it only managed to tie Undateable. This show is getting completely ignored now and FOX made the right call by making next year the final run. Even just a couple years ago, the final performance night was over a 4 in the demo.

WINNER OF THE NIGHT: NCIS (CBS)
LOSER OF THE NIGHT: American Idol (FOX)
