The characters of “9-1-1” may have been dealing with a pretty big emergency during the season 3 finale last night, but the show itself didn’t need to call for help in the ratings.
Fox’s highest-rated scripted show of the season closed out its third edition with a 1.3 rating among adults 18-49 and 7.1 million total viewers. That’s even in terms of rating on the penultimate episode, but also a four-week high audience-wise. The show’s largest audience of the season (7.6 million) came on April 13. “9-1-1” led the network to a narrow overall victory, after a replay of the show’s “Lone Star” spinoff only summoned up a 0.5 and 3.4 million viewers.
