The freshman season finale of “Prodigal Son,” which ended on a suitably gruesome note, came in pretty much even on the last few episodes.
Monday’s episode delivered a 0.7 rating among adults 18-49 and 3.5 million total viewers, which represents the show’s largest audience since Oct. 2019 (albeit only just). Fox is yet to make a renewal decision on the Tom Payne and Michael Sheen series, which currently sits about halfway down its ratings chart for the season. A new episode of “9-1-1” preceded it, coming in at a 1.2 rating and 6.6 million total viewers.
