Ratings: NBC Tops Tuesday’s Key Demo With Pair of ‘Chicago’ Shows

CBS reruns grab first-place finish among total viewers

NBC topped Tuesday’s primetime in the key 18-49 demographic thanks to a pair of Dick Wolf‘s “Chicago” shows. The network finished second among total viewers to CBS.

For ABC, the season premiere of “What Would You Do” was even with its last airing in the time slot, which took place way back in December 2013. That said, “WWYD” was down 30 percent from its prior premiere.

Thanks to “The Flash,” the CW pushed ABC all the way to fifth place in the main demographic. To be fair to the Disney broadcast network, ABC did have some repeats on its own schedule.

NBC was first in ratings with a 1.5 rating/5 share in the advertiser-coveted 18-49 demographic and second in total viewers with an average of 6.8 million, according to preliminary numbers. “Hollywood Game Night” at 8 p.m. had a 1.2/4 and 4.5 million viewers. “Chicago Med” at 9 got a 1.6/5 and 7.5 million viewers. “Chicago Fire” at 10 received a 1.8/6 and 8.4 million viewers.
