TNT's "Rizzoli & Isles" Closes Out Summer with 6 Million Viewers, Largest Audience for Season 3

TNT's hit series Rizzoli & Isles closed out its summer run last night with 6 million viewers, the drama's largest Live + Same Day audience of the season. That's up 36% over the previous episode and +7% over last year's summer finale. Rizzoli & Isles currently ranks third behind TNT's The Closer and Major Crimes among basic cable's most-watched scripted series this summer.

Rizzoli & Isles also showed solid demo growth over its most recent episode, with 1.6 million adults 18-49 (+21%) and 2.0 million adults 25-54 (+10%).

Last night's performance by Rizzoli & Isles brings its Live + Same Day average this summer to 5.4 million viewers, 1.4 million adults 18-49 and 1.8 million adults 25-54. The show has grown considerably through time-shifted viewing, with the first eight episodes averaging more than 8 million viewers in Live + 7, including 2.4 million adults 18-49 and 2.9 million adults 25-54. Rizzoli & Isles is set to return this November to finish up its third season.

About Rizzoli & Isles

TNT's Rizzoli & Isles stars Angie Harmon and Sasha Alexander as television's smartest (and most attractive) crime-solving duo. Based on characters created by best-selling crime novelist Tess Gerritsen, Rizzoli & Isles stars Harmon as Jane Rizzoli, a tough-as-nails Boston police detective, and Alexander as Maura Isles, a smart, impeccably dressed medical examiner from a privileged background. Despite being complete opposites, the two women share an offbeat chemistry and strong working relationship that lets them solve complex murder mysteries in the city of Boston. Rizzoli & Isles also stars Lee Thompson Young, Bruce McGill, Jordan Bridges, Brian Goodman and Lorraine Bracco. The series comes to TNT from Warner Horizon Television and is executive-produced by Janet Tamaro of Hurdler Productions and Bill Haber of Ostar Productions, as well as Michael Katleman.
