Thursday TV Ratings 7/13/23: The Blacklist Slightly Up in Two-Hour Series Finale, Generation Gap and The Chase Slip (UPDATED)

Ratings Analysis: A 10-season run came to an end on NBC as 'The Blacklist' (0.26, +0.06/0.22, -0.04) aired its two-hour series finale. Though the long-running drama did jump to a new season high at 8, it dropped by four-hundredths for the 9 p.m. episode. Considering this is a show that aired for nearly a decade, it clearly went out with a whimper. The peacock network aired a 'Magnum PI' rerun (0.14) in the 10 p.m. time slot. Over on ABC, game shows 'Generation Gap' (0.37, -0.07) and 'The Chase' (0.33, -0.04) dealt with sizable blows. Despite the declines, the 10 p.m. encore of 'Press Your Luck' (0.30) was even with its week-ago showing. Reruns of 'Young Sheldon' (0.28), 'Ghosts' (0.24), 'So Help Me Todd' (0.19), and 'CSI: Vegas' (0.14) were mostly up on CBS. Repeats of 'Alert: Missing Persons Unit' (0.11) and 'Stars on Mars' (0.09) completely underwhelmed on Fox. The CW had repeat showings of 'Walker' (0.03) and 'Penn & Teller: Fool Us' (0.05).

Finals Update: 'The Blacklist' at 8 PM (+0.1) adjusted up.
