This question already has an answer here:

Where is the Viewer node located at? Blender manual says it is an Output node but it is not under output. I have blender 2.77.

The Blender Manual is right. There is a viewer node under Output, but it's in the Composite Node Editor. I bet you are looking in the Material Node Editor.

To get one in the Material Node Editor, you have to activate the Node Wrangler add-on, then you can use Ctrl+Shift+LMB to create a temporary Viewer Node.
