The December limited series reached their 2019 ends.

DEMOGRAPHIC DETAIL: For each broadcast program (or hour segment), the chart below displays preliminary live+same day key advertiser demographics (adult 18-34, 18-49 and 25-54 ratings), audience skews (women 18-49, men 18-49 and adults 50+ shares) and total viewership (thousands of people over the age of 2).

Ratings analysis and comparisons follow the chart.

CW:  THE FLASH aired its CRISIS ON INFINITE EARTHS episode (the miniseries will resume in January), and was up 0.1 from last week’s FLASH episode to 0.6, and also steady with the Monday CRISIS installment.  CRISIS AFTERMATH held at 0.2.

FOX:  An off-night THE MASKED SINGER was down 0.2 from last week’s episode to 1.6.  That still gave the conclusion of THE MOODYS a much bigger lead-in than it had on Monday, and it was up 0.2 to 0.5.

ABC:  Returning from a week off, THE CONNERS dropped 0.2 to 1.0, and BLESS THIS MESS was down 0.1 to 0.6.  MIXED-ISH lost 0.1 to 0.5, and BLACK-ISH gained 0.1 to 0.6.  EMERGENCE stayed at 0.4.
