The season finale of "Grimm" (1.7/5 in 18-49, 5.0 million in total viewers from 10:01-11 p.m. ET) maintained its 18-49 rating of a week ago despite this week's special competition from the second hour of the "Dancing With the Stars" finale.

"Chicago Fire" (1.7/5 in adults 18-49, 6.2 million viewers overall at 10 p.m. ET) retained its full "SVU" lead-in despite facing the second hour of CBS's special two-hour "Criminal Minds" season finale, as well as ABC's "Nashville" season finale.
