In the latest TV show ratings, NBC’s Chicago Med and Fire tied for the nightly demo win, with the latter also copping Wednesday’s largest audience.
NBC | Chicago Med (6.8 million total viewers and a 0.6 rating) was steady, while Fire (7 mil/0.6) and P.D. (5.4 mil/0.5, read recap) both added a few eyeballs but dipped in the demo.
ABC | The Conners (4 mil/0.5) and The Goldbergs (2.6 mil/0.3) both dipped, while Abbott Elementary (2.9 mil/0.5) and the Home Economics (2.1 mil/0.3, average TVLine reader grade “A”) and Big Sky (2.4 mil/0.2, reader grade “A-“) season (?) finales were steady.
FOX | The painnnnfully easy Name That Tune: Celebrity/Charity Edition (1.7 mil/0.3) and Special Forces: World’s Toughest Test (1.6 mil/0.3) were both down, with the latter slipping for a second straight week since its launch.
CBS | TPIR at Night (4.5 mil/0.5) and Lingo (2.7 mil/0.4) both dipped, while Tough as Nails (1.8 mil/0.3) held steady.
The Live+Same Day numbers reported in our ratings column do not reflect a show’s overall performance, given the increased use of delayed playback via DVR and streaming platforms, plus out-of-home viewing. These numbers (Nielsen fast nationals, unless denoted as finals) instead aim to simply illustrate trends or superlatives. This is only an exhibition, this is not a competition. Please, no wagering.
