Only two days after the network canceled the freshman drama, “Tommy” aired its final episode to a 0.5 rating among adults 18-49 and 5.4 million total viewers, which will go down in the history books as a series high. The other two new episodes which aired on Thursday night were coincidentally for shows which were also dumped earlier in the week. “Man With a Plan,” which is sending after four seasons, scored a 0.7 and 6.1 million viewers (even on last week), and “Broke came in with a 0.6 and 4.8 million viewers. The announcement that the Pauley Perrette and Jaime Camil series would not be continuing came after only five episodes of its first season had aired.
