How did Chicago Fire, Chicago PD and Chicago Med do in the ratings this week? Find out in the Feb. 12 edition of the One Chicago ratings report.

It was another busy week for the One Chicago franchise, and another week with a lot to talk about in the franchise’s live TV ratings.

Feb. 12 started with the Chicago Med episode “It May Not Be Forever” and the installment was down significantly from the previous week. Its 8.13 million people watching live was a loss of 0.47 (or -470,000 viewers).

That’s the lowest live viewership in the last three episodes.

When it comes to the score within adults 18-49, Chicago Med continued to hold serve with a 1.1 stat in that key demographic. It remained tied for fourth place out of the 14 shows on broadcast TV on Wednesday night.

Following after that was the Chicago Fire installment “Shut It Down” that brought in 8.24 million people watching live. That was a slight increase over the previous mark of 8.18 (+0.06, or 60,000).

The result makes it the second week in a row that Chicago Fire has gained viewers, albeit not that many this time around.

The episode’s 1.1 score in the key demo was also good for a tie for fourth place with the Chicago Med installment that aired before it.

To wrap up the evening, Chicago PD drew in 6.97 million audience members watching live with its latest episode “Center Mass.” The episode dropped the show underneath the 7 million viewer mark, after it had reached 7.149 million people last week (-0.17, or 170,000).

For those keeping score, that means the One Chicago cop drama gave back almost all of the additional watchers it gained last Wednesday. It also had the lowest score in the demo at 1.0, which was good enough for sixth place out of 14 programs.

While the One Chicago series are still the three most-watched shows on Wednesdays—though this week it was Chicago Fire, not Chicago Med, that was number one—they’re still fighting an uphill battle against FOX when it comes to winning over viewers 18-49.

The Masked Singer and LEGO Masters were once again the clear champions in that category; their 1.8 and 1.2 demo scores, respectively, are both better than any of the Chicago programs. And the new season of CBS‘s Survivor, at 1.3, was also better.

So we’re asking the same questions we’ve asked before: will the network be happy with just being the most watched channel in total viewers, or will they be disappointed that this franchise is not also tops among the most popular age group? And if so, will they make added attempts to attract younger viewers to the franchise?

We’ll have to watch and see, but so far, it looks like a fair amount of people have gone from One Chicago to reality TV—and while that’s far from the end of the world, it’s certainly worth keeping an eye on.
