Averaging 5 million total weekly viewers and a 1.0 demo rating, The Night Shift easily bested the likes of CBS’ Zoo (4.5 mil/0.7) and Fox’s Wayward Pines (2.4 mil/0.7) to stand as this past summer’s No. 1 drama. (Fainter praise alert: The medical sudser also was undefeated in its Wednesdays-at-10 time slot this summer, opposite CBS’ American Gothic and ABC reruns.)

The Night Shift‘s Season 3 finale — which left almost every character’s fate in one kind of flux or another — earned an average grade of “A” from TVLine readers.
