Finale of Jon & Kate Plus Eight draws 4.32 million

Jon & Kate Plus Eight‘s finale rebounded from its fall ratings slide, but didn’t come close to reaching the peak of 10 million viewers that watched their divorce announcement episode in late May.

Overall, 4.318 million viewers watched, according to TV By the Numbers. The New York Times notes that “the program was drawing between one and two million viewers this fall.”

That 4.318 million viewers is almost as many viewers as Jay Leno had on NBC at 10 p.m., 4.54 million, although Leno is far more depressing.
