TV Ratings 5/10/17: Criminal Minds Closes Season Strong, Blackish Up, Blindspot Dips After Renewal (UPDATED)

There were some brand new series lows and some slight increases in the ratings on Wednesday night, as well as a few finales. Criminal Minds ended its twelfth season steady with last week, with ratings high enough to give it 3rd place for the night. Survivor continued to impress, though it was down a tenth. The series has yet to rate below a 1.7 this season, a rating it's been at all season. After strong performances from its lead-ins, Criminal Minds: Beyond Border was back down to a 0.8. On ABC, their first three comedies struggled again, hitting or tying series lows. Blackish, however, was up a tenth for its finale, as was Designated Survivor, so the news wasn't all bad for ABC. Over on the CW, Arrow ticked up to its strongest rating since early March, while the 100 was stuck at 0.3. NBC's recently renewed Blindspot was down a tenth and looked significantly weaker than last week, while fellow recently-renewed series Chicago PD was steady. Yet-to-be-renewed SVU was up a tenth, trying to make a case for a renewal that arguably should have already happened. Fox's Empire had a nice two tenth boost, and with 2.1/2.2 half-hours, it could make that a three tenth jump.

Finals Update: Criminal Minds (+0.1), Speechless (+0.1), Chicago PD (+0.1), Empire (+0.1), and Modeorn Family (+0.1) adjusted up.
