Tuesday TV Ratings 5/25/21: This Is Us Ends Steady at 10 PM, FBI Down for Finale, Mental Samurai Abysmal (UPDATED)

Preliminary Analysis: Tuesday night was filled with an odd mismatch of premieres and finales, as programs from the regular season continue to depart to make room for summer filler. NBC's 'The Voice' (0.7) got back a tenth on finale night, but 'This Is Us' couldn't rise for its closer, posting its fifth-straight 0.8 rating. 'This Is Us' was down more than 50% from the strong 1.7 it garnered for its previous season finale. Over on CBS, Monday-bound 'NCIS' (0.7) held even for its season finale and final Tuesday episode. Later in the night, 'FBI' (0.6) shed a tenth on finale night as 'FBI: Most Wanted' (0.5) matched its last outing. ABC got decent mileage out of the first installment of a Mike Tyson documentary (0.5) and finished out the night with a poorly-rated George Floyd special (0.3). Fox had a particularly brutal evening as 'Game of Talents' (0.2) crashed to a new low for its finale, falling a whopping four-tenths without its usual 'Masked Singer' lead-in. The season two premiere of 'Mental Samurai' (0.2) failed to improve from there, going well below anything it posted in season one. On the CW, 'The Flash' (0.1) found itself in new-low territory while 'Superman & Lois' (0.2) rose by a tenth. 

Finals Update: The finale of 'The Voice' (0.8, +0.1) and the premiere of 'Mike Tyson: The Knockout' (0.6, +0.1) adjusted up.
