On a night with season and series finales, NBC said goodbye to Grimm after six years. It was up two tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo for its best performance since the season premiere. This was a quietly stable performer on Fridays for years for NBC even back to when the rest of its week was a mess. But the NBC lineup is much stronger now and it was time for Grimm to end. At 9pm, Dateline NBC was down seven tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo. After two weeks of basketball, the CBS lineup was back. MacGyver was down 1.1 million viewers and a tenth in the demo. Hawaii Five-0 was down half a million viewers and a tenth in the demo and Blue Bloods was up two tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo. On the CW, The Originals was down a tenth in viewers and the demo while Reign was down a tenth in viewers and even in the demo.

On ABC, the season finales of the comedies started off the night. Last Man Standing was even in viewers and up a tenth in the demo while Dr. Ken was down a tenth in viewers and the demo. This was a rough ending for Ken but I still think it will probably get renewed. Last Man deserves to get renewed but as always, I'm sure it will come down to contract and money reasons outside of just ratings. After a Shark Tank repeat, 20/20 was down two tenths in viewers and up a tenth in the demo. Finally on FOX, Rosewood was new for the first time since February 24 and it was down two tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo for a new series low. It was followed by the season finale of Sleepy Hollow, which was down three tenths in viewers and even in the demo. I cannot imagine that it will return for a fifth season but I also didn't think it would be back for a fourth so we'll see.

WINNER OF THE NIGHT: Grimm (NBC)
LOSER OF THE NIGHT: Dr. Ken (ABC)
