TV Ratings: NBC's 'Chicago' Dramas Sweep Wednesday Again
NBC's three Chicago dramas scored an across-the-board ratings win for the second consecutive week on Wednesday, leading primetime in total viewers, adults 18-49 and adults 25-54. Chicago Fire and Chicago Med also finished first and second in the younger demographic of adults 18-34.
Elsewhere, CBS got decent numbers from its annual Super Bowl's Greatest Commercials special, and The Rachel Maddow Show continued its run as cable news' most watched show.
Chicago Med led the night in both adults 18-49 (0.99 rating) and total viewers (7.47 million). Chicago Fire (0.96, 7.31 million viewers) topped primetime in the 25-54 (1.42 rating) and 18-34 (0.59) demos. Both shows improved on last week's ratings in all four measures. Chicago PD edged down to 0.84 in adults 18-49 but rose slightly in total viewers to 6.09 million and led the 10 p.m. hour by wide margins.
Super Bowl's Greatest Commercials drew 5.25 million viewers and a 0.63 in adults 18-49 for CBS, ranking third for the night in both measures. ABC's comedy block was on par with last week; For Life (0.26 in 18-49, 1.41 million viewers) declined a little.
Fox's The Masked Dancer (0.55 demo, 2.75 million viewers) was about even with last week, but Name That Tune recorded season lows of 0.48 in adults 18-49 and 2.34 million viewers. Riverdale (0.14, 544,000) and Nancy Drew (0.07, 460,000) increased their total viewer counts a little.
On cable, The Rachel Maddow Show scored 3.9 million viewers for MNSBC, leading the channel to a primetime win among total viewers. CNN finished first in prime among adults 25-54, and MTV's The Challenge: Double Agents led the 18-49 rankings on cable with a 0.54 rating.
