ABC’s Splash experiment came to a close Tuesday night with a very modestly rated finale.

Splash had only 4.4 million viewers and a 1.0 rating among adults 18-49 (see our winners post). Though that was up 11 percent from last week, it was still broadcast’s lowest-rated show for the night on a major network. I can’t see ABC investing in Splash again, unless it was maybe for a summer series but even that’s a long-shot.

Also Tuesday, NBC’s Grimm maintained last week’s time-period-premiere rating and won 10 p.m., despite its lead-in from The Voice going down 8 percent. Will NBC keep Grimm on Tuesdays next season or shuffle it back to Fridays? The network announces its fall schedule on Sunday and EW will have all the details.

Another finale last night: The CW’s Hart of Dixie wrapped its second season steady with the previous week. Also: CBS’ freshman drama Golden Boy fell to its Tuesday low — it’s not coming back. ABC’s Body of Proof fell 13 percent despite its Dancing lead-in rising 13 percent, and didn’t help its odds. Most other shows were roughly on par with their last episodes. Full Chart:
