Complete Nielsen Ratings: May 23 - 29, 2016

The full Nielsen rankings and ratings from #1 to #85: 
 

NBC, loaded up with finales, wins the final week of the 2015-16 regular TV season. The network was #1 in each category, including a tie with ABC in the A18-49 demographic. NBC pushed  five shows into the top eight spots, including the season finale of THE VOICE, which ranked second overall in total viewers and was #1 in the A18-40 demo.

ABC was a close second place, thanks to two nights of DANCING WITH THE STARS. The Monday finale was the #1 show of the week, with 12.3 million viewers. The season finale, on Tuesday night, ranked third, with 10.5 million viewers. ABC only pushed three more shows into the top 30, including the season premiere of THE BACHELORETTE, at #10.

CBS had already aired most of its season finales in the previous weeks, so it took a relatively big drop in the ratings, finishing third. The combination of strong encores and specials kept it competitive in the finale week. CBS did place 15 shows within the top 30, but none of them were huge gratings draws, especially in the younger demographics. An encore of THE BIG BANG THEORY drew a 1.4 demo rating, as the network's top draw in the demo.

FOX was right there with CBS, but only placed three shows in the top 30, two of which were from the NASCAR Race on Sunday night. BONES, still in originals, ranked 28th with 4.6 million viewers.

Season finales of THE FLASH (#6) and ARROW (#22) made the top 30 of the A18-34 demographic, and THE FLASH took the #15 spot in the A18-49 rankings and the #32 spot in the older, A25-54 rankings.
