Tuesday TV Ratings 5/12/20: The Happy Days of Garry Marshall and Hollywood Game Night Decent, For Life Rises for Finale (UPDATED)

Tuesday night was filled with special airings on broadcast.

ABC had arguably the most notable of them all with a tribute to iconic film and TV director Garry Marshall. Expectations weren't terribly high and the special did well for the network with a 0.6, about as much as you can expect for an end of season special with a niche premise such as this. IT was higher than last week's finales of the Ish-Verse at 9, and in-line with Bless This Mess' finale at 8:30, only underperforming The Conners, TV's #1 comedy. At 10, For Life ended a so-so season ratings-wise with a 0.5, likely helped by the stronger, if more incompatible, lead-in.

NBC saw a decline at 8 for The Voice, which has seen big declines on Mondays since beginning its "at home" episodes. It tied Monday's airing with a 0.9. Ellen's Game of Games ended its season at 9 with a 0.8, a far cry from its 1.4 from the early COVID-19 bump in March but steady with last week. A special Red Nose Day (but a week and a half early) version of Hollywood Game Night saw a nice boost to 0.6 after regular 0.4-0.5s last season.

Fox aired a 24 Hours to Hell and Back special that was in-line with its season average with a 0.6.

The CW said goodbye to their only real hit, The Flash, which ended its season with a 0.4. That's mildly below-average but in-line with what it's received since mid-March. Behind it, Legends of Tomorrow again held onto 0.2 for the eleventh straight week.

CBS had repeats of its midseason Tuesday lineup. Unusually, NCIS not being the highest rated of the bunch, with FBI taking on that honor. It got a 0.6 to the other shows' 0.5s.

Finals Update: The repeat of FBI: Most Wanted (-0.1) adjusted down.
