On Wednesday night, many shows said farewell for the season but Empire trounced them all. The hit FOX drama was up 1.1 million viewers and a strong four tenths in the demo for its season finale. This was its best performance since April 6. Of course, it's nowhere near the 6.8 demo last year's finale got but it's so far and above anything else on network TV. Earlier in the night, Rosewood was up half a million viewers and three tenths in the demo for a nice spike of its own. It still has one more week, though. Given no Empire next week and its fall timeslot, it may never reach this demo again. On CBS, the Survivor finale was even with last week. It doesn't get extra viewers anymore for the finale but it is still a top 10 show in the demo. It was just a tenth in the demo below the fall finale. The live reunion show did OK at 10pm.

On ABC, it was a night of season finales for the comedies. At 8pm, The Middle was even with last week. At 8:30pm, The Goldbergs was up two tenths in viewers and even in the demo. Modern Family was down four tenths in viewers and even in the demo. The demo tied the series low last week while the viewer total is an outright series low and the first time Modern has ever gone below seven million viewers. At 9:30pm, Black-ish was down two tenths in viewers and even in the demo. At 10pm, the penultimate episode of Nashville was down two tenths in viewers and even in the demo. Finally on NBC, Heartbeat was down four tenths in viewers and even in the demo. Law & Order: SVU got whacked by Empire and was down three tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo. At 10pm, Chicago PD was up a tenth in viewers and even in the demo.

WINNER OF THE NIGHT: Empire (FOX)
LOSER OF THE NIGHT: Modern Family (ABC)
