To appreciate last night’s ratings results, you have to take into consideration the show tagging, which allows short portions of the program to float to the top of the heap.
In general, a long program can see its average show trend downwards because not all viewers make it to the end. Or sometimes with season finales, viewers may even just turn on at the end just to see the outcome.
That said, here’s how last night went…
