Chicago Fire, Chicago Med and Chicago PD ratings are in for the latest episodes. Here’s the Feb. 6 edition of the One Chicago Ratings Report.

With another week of the One Chicago season in the books, it’s time to take another look at the franchise’s TV ratings with the One Chicago Ratings Report.

The first Wednesday in February brought with it some changes in competition, so would NBC be able to hold onto its ratings success? Especially since the last new episodes aired on Jan. 23?

After having such a big week last time out, you’d think the numbers for Chicago Med would drop slightly, just because it accomplished something so major. But surprisingly, that’s not really true!

The series did experience a ratings dip, but it was minor at best. This week’s episode brought in 9.33 million live viewers, down incrementally from the 9.36 who tuned in previously.

That kept Chicago Med on top of broadcast TV for one more week, with no other show even coming close to the 9 million mark.

Its 1.4 share amongst adults 18-49 also put it in second place within that key demographic, behind only FOX‘s reality hit The Masked Singer.

That’s also the second week Med has been the runner-up among the favorite demographic of advertisers. For a show that often gets overlooked, it’s making a huge roar this season.

At 9 p.m. the next Chicago Fire recorded 8.78 million people watching live. That’s a nice rise from the last episode’s 8.42 million (+0.36, or 360,000).

The series came in second amongst total viewers, and its 1.3 share was good enough for third place in the demo. That shows you the gap in competition between the One Chicago franchise and other networks—the show was more than a half million eyes behind Chicago Med, and it was still second place!

An interesting note: Chicago Fire was one of only two scripted dramas on in that 9 p.m. time slot on the five broadcast networks. Both FOX and CBS aired reality shows, while ABC went with comedies, so if you were looking for drama on broadcast TV, you only had two choices—Fire and The CW‘s All American, which has struggled all season.

Will that schedule help our show going forward, since it’s the only drama in that hour that has an established audience? Keep an eye on that.

Finishing out Feb. 6 was Chicago PD, which continued to be a step behind the other two One Chicago shows but still helped NBC have more total viewers than any other broadcast network. Its 7.38 million eyeballs was up from the previous 7.22 (+0.17, or 170,000).

It earned a 1.2 share in the adults 18-49 category, which made it fourth in that category and third among total viewers. For comparison, the season finale of Criminal Minds airing at the same time had 4.73 million people tuned in live.

It was another strong week for One Chicago viewership, though we should continue to ask how Chicago PD can get to the same heights as Chicago Med and Chicago Fire. There’s been a decent gap between the shows all season, and it’d be nice to have all three up there in the 8-9 million range.
