Chicago Med’s 100th episode reaches more than 9 million live viewers

Chicago Med had a celebration in its 100th episode, and it also provided a reason to celebrate in the latest Chicago Med season 5 ratings.

The milestone 100th episode of Chicago Med also reached an impressive benchmark in this week’s One Chicago ratings.

“The Ghosts of the Past” reached 9.12 million live viewers on Wednesday night, making it the most-watched program on broadcast TV for the evening.

It was also the most-watched episode of Chicago Med since 2015, other than the One Chicago crossover episodes. For those keeping score, that means the most popular episode since Chicago Med season 1!

That’s a pretty awesome accomplishment for any series, but especially one that was rumored to be up for cancellation a few years ago, when NBC got rid of Chicago Justice instead.

Instead, less than two years later, Chicago Med is delivering some of its best numbers and is often the highest-rated of the three One Chicago series when it comes to the fans who tune in live to watch each episode.

Elsewhere, on another night when live TV viewing was higher due to current events, Chicago Fire also experienced a bump in ratings. Its 8.9 million live audience members left it just shy of also reaching the same threshold.

This, too, was Fire‘s most-watched standalone episode since 2015 (again, not counting the One Chicago crossover installments).

Both Fire and Med recorded an impressive 1.3 share amongst adults 18-49, which was up more than 18 percent from the last new Fire episode on March 4, and up 30 percent for Med.

As for Chicago PD, this week’s episode continued to lag behind the other two series, with “Before The Fall” coming in about 1.5 million people less than “The Ghosts of the Past.”

But it still attracted 7.56 million viewers tuning in live, which was enough to keep it within the Top 5 of broadcast shows on Wednesday evening. It also was a clear winner over its direct rival, CBS‘s bubble series SWAT (which recorded 4.1 million).

According to data directly from NBC, Chicago PD had its highest-rated episode since 2016, again outside of its crossover hours. While we should take these numbers with a grain of salt, since they come with extenuating circumstances, they do still provide something for One Chicago fans to be happy about this week.
