Friday TV Ratings: 'Hawaii Five-0' Finale Ends On Two Year High in Total Viewers
After ten seasons anchoring CBS's Friday nights, Hawaii Five-0 wrapped up its run with a series finale that gave the crime drama its highest total viewers in over two years. With 9.34 million total viewers, the rebooted drama of the 1968-1980 series (which also aired on CBS) hit a high it hasn't seen since a January 12, 2018 (9.38 million). The series also tied for the lead 18-49 demo with ABC's Shark Tank (both received a 0.9 rating).
The night was also good to Hawaii Five-0's lead-in, MacGyver (also a reboot of the 1985-93 ABC series), which also grabbed a season high and its highest numbers since its February 2, 2018 (7.27 million). The eye network's Blue Bloods also hit a series high in total viewers with 8.80 million viewers.
