It looks like “Will & Grace” fans weren’t as interested in finding out how the first season of NBC’s old/new hit ended as they were in tuning in to see how it started.
On Thursday, the season-closer of the revival grabbed a 0.9/4 in the advertiser-coveted 18-49 demographic and an average of 3.6 million total viewers, according to overnight data from Nielsen.
Back in October, the return of the sitcom was the most-viewed scripted show of the night, with 10.2 million viewers and a 3.0 rating/11 share in the key demo.

However, the “Will & Grace” Season 1 finale — or Season 9, whatever — did remain steady with last week’s installment, which had a 0.9/4 and slipped slightly in viewers to 3.7 million.
And CBS was No. 1 in both ratings and total viewers.
CBS was first in ratings with a 1.3 rating/6 share in the advertiser-coveted 18-49 demographic and in total viewers with an average of 8.2 million, according to preliminary numbers.
ABC was second in ratings with a 1.2/5 and in viewers with 5.2 million.
NBC was third in ratings with a 0.8/3 and in viewers with 3.6 million.
