Wednesday TV Ratings 5/18/22: The Masked Singer and The Conners End Up, Home Economics Rises for Finale, So You Think You Can Dance Returns Low

Ratings Analysis: ABC had almost nothing but positive news on finale night as 'The Wonder Years' (0.33, +0.04), 'The Conners' (0.42, +0.01), 'Home Economics' (0.29, +0.05), and 'A Million Little Things' (0.24, +0.05) all rose for their season closers. Longtime sitcom 'The Goldbergs' (0.39, -0.03) was the only show not to rise on the alphabet network, with the comedy sinking to a new series low for the final episode of its ninth season. 'Survivor' (0.92, +0.14) had the largest week-to-week gain of the evening on CBS and led into the 'Beyond the Edge' finale (0.32, +0.01). 'Edge' picked up a single hundredth and was followed by a rerun of 'FBI' (0.21) that went a tenth below it. Fox's 'The Masked Singer' (0.71, +0.05) gained five-hundredths for its finale, but the season premiere of 'So You Think You Can Dance' (0.34) retained less than half of that rating. 'Dance' was a tenth lower than the last time it aired back in 2019 (0.4). On NBC, 'Chicago Med' (0.63, -0.01) lost a hundredth, 'Chicago Fire' (0.69, +0.01) gained one, and 'Chicago PD' (0.65, -0.02) shed two-hundredths. 'The Flash' (0.12, +0.01) and 'Kung Fu' (0.08, +0.01) each got a hundredth back on The CW.

Finals Update: 'Survivor' (+0.1) adjusted up.
