Rampage finished behind Love After Lockup (498,000 and 0.20) but tied On Patrol Live (890,000 and 0.15).

It was Rampage’s second-highest 18-49 audience of the year behind the January 6 episode and the largest overall audience since January 27.

In the key demo, female viewership was up by 56.5 percent (highest since Jan. 27), and male viewership increased by 55 percent (highest since Dec. 23, 2022).

Adults 18-34 hit its highest mark since December 23, 2022, with a 120 percent increase over last week’s audience.

Adults 35-49 improved by 24 percent while adults 50+ were the only demo to experience a dip at five percent.
