The Amazing Race 19 Finale Scores Season Highs

The Amazing Race 19 Finale Scores Season Highs

Some great news.  The season finale of The Amazing Race 19 scored season highs in just about every important ratings measure it could.  The finale scored a 7.0/10 household rating and share, 11.72 million viewers, a 4.5 adults 25-54 rating and a 3.3 adults 18-49 rating. 

In comparison to last fall’s finale, that’s an 11%, 0.4 drop in the 18-49 demo and a smaller 4% drop in viewers.  For season averages, TAR19 experienced a 12% drop in the demo (2.9 from a 3.3) and a 7% drop in viewers (10.2 million from 10.9 million).  It seems The Good Wife lead-out (which skews very old) has not helped TAR. Should be interesting to see if CBS will make moves at midseason.
