Tuesday TV Ratings 5/5/20: The Conners and Blackish Tie and Hit Lows for Finales, Game of Games Drops (UPDATED)

Preliminary Analysis: ABC said goodbye to their tepid Tuesday lineup in pretty disheartening fashion as sitcom juggernaut 'The Conners' (0.9) lost a tenth and matched its season two low-point. This was a far cry from its first season finale (1.5) but still a relatively normal data point for the Roseanne spinoff. It led into steady 'Bless This Mess' (0.6) and 'Mixed-ish' (0.5). The truly alarming number came with the sixth season finale of 'Blackish' (0.4) at 9:30. Not only did the veteran end its season on a new series low but it was also multiple tenths below its year-ago finale (0.7). That rotten result dragged 'For Life' (0.4) back down to its low at 10, though the freshman drama still has a chance to rise for its finale next week. 'FBI: Most Wanted' (0.6) lost a tenth on CBS, tying its season low. It had little lead-in support as 'NCIS' (0.6) and 'FBI' (0.5) remained in repeat mode. NBC's 'The Voice' (1.0) tied the number it posted yesterday but 'Ellen's Game of Games' (0.8) inched down a notch. The peacock network capped the night with another 'New Amsterdam' (0.4) encore. FOX had another repeat of 'The Masked Singer' (0.5) while The CW had steady helpings of 'The Flash' (0.4) and 'Legends of Tomorrow' (0.2).
