NBC's Chicago lineup returned from a couple weeks of repeats to give the network Wednesday's biggest total audience and a share of the adults 18-49 lead.

All three shows — Chicago Med (1.0 rating in adults 18-49), Chicago Fire (1.1) and Chicago P.D. (1.0) — were even with their last original episodes in the key ad demographic. Fire and Med were the two most watched shows in primetime with 8.01 million and 7.71 million viewers, and P.D. was fourth at 7.05 million.

CBS' Survivor came in third in viewers with 7.36 million and led the 18-49 demo for the night with a 1.4 rating, off slightly week to week. The Amazing Race came down two tenths of a point from its premiere but still posted a decent 1.0 in adults 18-49, and SEAL Team held at 0.7.

Fox's Empire sent off Jussie Smollett's character (for the time being, at least) with a 1.1, even with a week ago. Star also held steady at 0.9.

At ABC, a block of comedy reruns led into Whiskey Cavalier, which recorded season lows of 0.4 in adults 18-49 and 2.53 million viewers. The CW's Riverdale (0.3) ticked up for Luke Perry's final episode, and Jane the Virgin was steady at 0.2. 

CBS, Fox and NBC tied for the adults 18-49 lead in primetime, all averaging 1.0 ratings. Telemundo's 0.6 beat out ABC's 0.5 for fourth place. Univision averaged 0.3 and The CW 0.2.
