The final episode of Jimmy Kimmel’s special stint as host of “Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?” finished with decent numbers on Thursday night.

Rating-wise, the show’s biggest number was still a 1.1 from its season premiere. Right after, “Holey Moley” scored a bogey, ticking down fractionally to a 0.7 rating and 3.9 million viewers. “To Tell The Truth” rounded off the night with a 0.6 rating and 3.6 million viewers, which is also down a little from last week.
