Heidi, The Voice of Doom: Just kidding, not doom. :-) Just that it’s an increase of 10%ish but still below the previous fall season finale all the way around. Remember my ratings post from a while back?? It shows you that last fall’s season finale performance and results show numbers hovered just below 25 million. So, the show is doing better, but still below par. The good news is that seasons 11 and 12 may have been the aberations, not this season. Take a look at my season averages in that post I linked and you’ll see that this season MIGHT actually be a return to the previously established norm.  I’ll have to take all the ratings numbers this season and add them to these charts. When I get an answer for sure, I’ll let you know. :-)
