How did Chicago Fire, Chicago PD and Chicago Med do in the TV ratings this week? Check out Oct. 9’s numbers in the One Chicago ratings report.

The One Chicago franchise experienced ratings loss this week, though the good news for fans is only one of the shows was affected.

The latest Chicago Med reached 7.35 million people live, making “In The Valley of the Shadows” slightly less watched than last Wednesday’s episode (7.55, for a loss of 0.20, or -20,000).

What went up was the show’s share amongst the sub-section of viewers between the ages of 18 and 49. Chicago Med posted a 1.1 in that top demographic (compared to last week’s 1.0), and that bumped it from a tie for fifth place there into a tie for third with CBS‘s Survivor.

Chicago Fire saw its ratings rise this time around. “Badlands” was watched by 7.63 million fans, compared to the previous mark of 7.57 (an incremental gain of 0.06, or +6,000).

That kept Chicago Fire on top as Wednesday night’s most-watched series for the second week in a row. Its 1.2 share in the key demo was also up week-to-week, good enough for second place there behind only FOX‘s The Masked Singer.

(For those of you folllowing the ongoing story, Masked Singer picked up ratings this week, which may be an explanation for Chicago Med‘s attrition—those two shows compete directly with each other.)

And there’s more good news, too! Although Chicago PD continues to lag behind its compatriots, the cop drama also saw its ratings go up in Week 3.

More viewers tuned into “Familia” which saw an audience of 6.41 million eyeballs. That pushed Chicago PD back over the 6 million mark after it had dropped to 5.99 last time (0.42, or +420,000).

It wasn’t enough to move the needle in rankings; it was still fifth in both total viewers and within the 18-49 demo. And it’s still significantly behind the other One Chicago shows, but at least it’s on the way up. Perhaps doing a Vanessa Rojas-centric episode interested some new viewers?

So what can One Chicago’s fans learn this week? The most important thing is that on the strength of our three favorite shows, NBC is obliterating the other broadcast networks in total viewers. The channel had an average of 7.1 million eyeballs watching, while runner-up CBS just missed hitting the 5 million benchmark—that’s a huge difference! And a sign of the power of this franchise since it all landed on the same night.
