Last night, ‘Marlon’ season 2 ended on NBC with a total of 2.4 Milion people watching its final episode. The show which stars Marlon Wayans as a dad looking to balancing fatherhood, friendships, and his career has served as Wayans latest TV run, following his time with 90’s Wayans Bros. Despite the show having a smaller number than it’s season 1 finale, the show ended fairly given that it was on air when few people watch the TV.
The Season 2 finale of “Marlon” held steady in the Thursday overnight ratings week-to-week but was down from the Season 1 finale last year. The first new episode of “Marlon” airing at 9 p.m. drew a 0.6 rating in adults 18-49 and 2.9 million viewers, even with its performance in that time slot last week. The season finale at 9:30 averaged a 0.6 and 2.4 million viewers. The Season 1 finale drew a 1.0 and 3.6 million viewers, meaning this season’s finale was down 40% in the demo and 33% in total viewers compared to last season. In fairness, Season 1 started airing later in August of last year whereas this season began in June when less people are traditionally watching TV.
