One Chicago ratings report for November 18, 2020

One Chicago ratings for Nov. 11, 2020.

One Chicago ratings didn’t change much in the second week of the NBC franchise’s season, which also ended up being its midseason finale week.

Chicago Fire benefited from ending its season premiere on a cliffhanger, as “That Kind of Heat” had 7.55 million people tuning in live to find out what happened to Ambulance 61.

That’s a major jump from the 7.02 million who watched the premiere last Wednesday (+0.53, or an extra 530,000 people—an increase of more than a half-million).

However, the show did lose a little interest amongst adults 18-49, as its share within that key demo fell a tenth from 1.0 to 0.9.

Unfortunately, Chicago PD got some bad news this week as its ratings slid downward. “White Knuckle” pulled in 6.19 million live viewers compared to 6.27 million for the season 8 premiere (-0.08, or a loss of 80,000 eyeballs).

It likewise dropped in the key demo from 0.9 to 0.8, making it the least-watched One Chicago show all the way around. Going back to the season 7 finale, the show has slipped in viewers more than 300,000 people over its last three outings.

Starting off the evening, Chicago Med was the one series that didn’t experience a major change week to week. The 7.62 million who watched “Those Things Hidden in Plain Sight” live was nearly the same as the 7.61 million who dialed into the season premiere.

The medical drama did fall from 1.1 to 1.0 in the central demographic, but that was the only knock against it, as it was the most-watched series on all of broadcast TV on Wednesday evening.

That plus the boost in audience for Chicago Fire meant that NBC had the top three series on the broadcast networks for Nov. 11, in terms of total viewers. (FOX is still number one in the demo as it airs The Masked Singer.) But any momentum the franchise has doesn’t matter at the moment, since this was its last week on the air for over a month.
