How did Chicago Fire season 6, Chicago PD season 5 and Chicago Med season 3 fare in the ratings last week? Find out in the One Chicago Ratings Report.

Another week in the One Chicago season has gone by, so it’s time for another edition of the One Chicago Ratings Report.

We’re slightly belated as we waited for the final numbers from last week’s midseason premieres, but here’s how all three of our One Chicago shows fared in their first week back.

Not to mention, the first week of 2018!

Things got underway with the Chicago Med season 3 midseason premiere, which aired on Jan. 2 to an audience of 6.91 million live viewers.

That’s higher than the show’s season average of 6.31 million live eyeballs, so that’s definitely a great start!

Med also performed strongly in the coveted adults 18-49 demographic. It was the third most watched show on broadcast TV in that group, tying with CBS‘s NCIS and behind only NBC‘s new game show Ellen’s Game of Games.

Its gain of 36.4 percent more viewers among adults 18-49 was the largest increase in that category for any broadcast show last week.

When total viewers were added up, the return of Chicago Med was the sixth most watched broadcast TV program last Tuesday (behind all of CBS’s Tuesday night lineup and then its own lead-in on NBC).

That brings us to Wednesday, where new episodes from all three of its dramas made NBC the most watched broadcast network in total viewers. That included Chicago PD pulling in 6.78 live audience members.

It was NBC’s highest rated show, and in terms of total audience, was third behind FOX’s return of The X-Files and CBS’s season premiere of The Amazing Race.

But it had a smaller share amongst adults 18-49, coming in tied for seventh place amongst that segment of viewers with a 1.3 share (0.2 behind Chicago Med‘s 1.5 rating).

Finishing out the week on Thursday, Jan. 4 was the return of Chicago Fire. That drew 5.90 million live watchers, making it the lowest-rated One Chicago show of the week (by a 0.41 million margin, or 410,000 eyeballs).

It’s also well off Chicago Fire‘s season to date average of 6.31 million audience members.

The good news is that Fire was still NBC’s top-rated series on Thursday night (pulling in about a million more viewers than a new Will & Grace). The bad news is it was beaten by its head to head competitor, CBS’s SWAT (which had 6.18 million viewers).

It may not have been a great return for Fire, but spinoff shows Med and PD certainly did their part to start off 2018 on a high note for One Chicago. We’ll have to see if the midseason premieres are able to hook more viewers this week as we head into week two!
