Ratings: ‘Dirty Dancing’ Remake Draws 6.6 Million Viewers for ABC

CBS wins Wednesday in spite of Fox’s ”Empire“ finale

The “Dirty Dancing” remake delivered ABC’s most-watched Wednesday in nearly seven months, but that doesn’t mean the Disney-owned broadcaster topped primetime.

Neither did the network airing “Empire’s” season finale, though: Fox finished second in the key 18-49 demographic, but was fourth among total viewers.

That leaves CBS and NBC, and last night belong to the “Survivor” net.

CBS was first in ratings with a 1.7 rating/7 share in the advertiser-coveted 18-49 demographic and in total viewers with an average of 7.8 million, according to preliminary numbers. The two-hour “Survivor” season finale starting at 8 p.m. scored a 1.9/8 and 8.6 million viewers. The reality competition’s reunion special at 10 landed a 1.4/5 and 6.2 million viewers.

Fox was second in ratings with a 1.6/7, but fourth and in viewers with 5.2 million. “Shots Fired” at 8 had a 0.9/4 and 3.4 million viewers. At 9, “Empire” earned a 2.4/9 and 6.9 million viewers.

ABC was third in ratings with a 1.3/5 and second in viewers with 6.6 million. The remake of the 30-year-old film was the only telecast on ABC’s schedule, earning those Nielsen numbers.

NBC was fourth in ratings with a 1.1/4 and third in viewers with 5.3 million. Following a rerun, the “Law & Order: SVU” finale at 9 put up a 1.3/5 and 6 million viewers.

Univision was fifth in ratings with a 0.6/2 and in viewers with 1.5 million.

The CW was sixth in ratings with a 0.5/2 and in viewers with 1.3 million. The “Arrow” finale at 8 got a 0.6/2 and 1.7 million viewers. At 9, “The 100” finale received a 0.3/1 and 982,000 viewers.

Telemundo was seventh in ratings with a 0.4/1 and in viewers with 880,000.
