How did Chicago Med season 3, Chicago PD season 5 and Chicago Fire season 6 fare in the ratings this 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.

After a few weeks of preemptions and reruns, all three One Chicago shows aired new episodes this week, so this will be a full ratings update. With the franchise back in full force, which show scored the highest?

Tuesday’s Chicago Med episode “Devil In Disguise” recorded 6.44 million live viewers. That is the show’s second consecutive week with a gain, as it’s up from last week‘s 6.15 million, which was up from the week before that.

The extra 290,000 eyeballs made Chicago Med climb back on par with what we expect from the third season.

It also lifted the show in the overall TV metrics. It went from the seventh most-seen broadcast TV show on Tuesday night to the sixth, and gained two places in the rankings amongst adults 18-49.

Chicago Med won the Tuesday 10 p.m. time slot among all scripted shows on broadcast TV, but it did come in with less total viewers than CBS‘s Elton John tribute (which had 7.12 million viewers across two hours starting at 9 p.m.)

Still, not a bad week for our favorite doctors and nurses, and back to what they ought to be seeing on the stat sheets.

After two weeks off, Chicago PD returned with “Payback” and brought in 5.84 million live viewers. It was NBC‘s most-watched show on Wednesday night, as all all three series (Chicago PD, The Blacklist and Law & Order: SVU) posted numbers in the 5’s.

PD beat CBS‘s Criminal Minds and ABC‘s Designated Survivor in the Wednesday 10 p.m. hour, but came in third in total viewers across all of Wednesday’s programs, behind CBS’s Survivor and SEAL Team.

It currently sits sixth amongst adults 18-49, tied with Dick Wolf‘s Law & Order: SVU, which continues to be just a step or two behind PD in ratings (5.4 million to 5.84 million) while being its lead-in.

All in all, PD may not be gangbusters in the numbers, but it’s doing its job winning its time slot for NBC, and is still the network’s best option on Wednesdays. Keep reading past the jump as we give you an update on Chicago Fire.

Thursday’s Chicago Fire episode “When They See Us Coming” recorded 5.48 million viewers, which was a minor lift from last week’s 5.41 million.

The episode was seventh in total viewers and tied for sixth with adults aged 18-49. Last week’s Fire was sixth in total audience and fifth in the adults 18-49 demographic, so it fell in both of the metrics despite having a gain in viewers.

After the big buzz of the two-hour movie event, it seems that Chicago Fire is settling back down toward its usual numbers, though any kind of gain is always a good gain!

Next: What did we learn from this week's Chicago PD?

We were back to our regular schedule this week, which also meant back to more regular ratings. All three One Chicago series performed pretty much as they normally do. Let’s see if they can build up some higher numbers now that they’ll be back in business consistently.
