Friday Final Nationals: ‘RuPaul’s Drag Race’ on VH1 Earns Series-Best Finale Ratings

CBS led Friday prime time in total viewers (4.93 million); NBC topped adults 18-49 outright (0.9 rating/4 share) as well sharing the demo wins with ABC among adults 18-34 (0.5/3) and adults 25-54 (1.2/4.7).
The ninth season finale of VH1 reality competition “RuPaul’s Drag Race” delivered the series’ best finale ratings to-date and the best viewership since its ninth season premiere on Mar. 24. The finale telecast jumped a whopping 218 percent in adults 18-49 from its eighth season finale on May 16, 2016. All of the series’ prior eight seasons aired on the lesser-viewed VH1 sister network of Logo.
