Chicago Fire January 7

via press note:

  • With its first telecast in four weeks and first this season with no “Voice” lead-in, “Chicago Fire” (1.9/5 in 18-49, 6.8 million viewers overall from 10:01-11 p.m. ET) finished within a tenth of a point of the slot lead among ABC, CBS and NBC in adults 18-49 (1.9 vs. 2.0 for CBS’s “Person of Interest”) and is #1 among those nets in women 18-49, adults 18-34, men 18-34 (tie) and women 18-34.
  • Despite its four-week break and the absence of a “Voice” lead-in, “Chicago Fire” outrated ABC’s premiere of “Killer Women” in the time period in every key measure – adults, men and women 18-34, 18-49 and 25-54, plus total viewers.
  • In its first telecast in three weeks and first this season that did not lead into “The Voice,” “The Biggest Loser” (1.7/5 in 18-49, 5.4 viewers overall from 8-10 p.m. ET) finished within 0.3 a point of the 2.0 for its prior telecast on Dec. 17.  In women 18-34, “The Biggest Loser” tied for #1 among the Big 4 networks in the two-hour time period and ranked #2 in women 18-49 and 25-54.

    I always had a hunch that CF did better with women viewers. The more you know.

  • DenverDean

    NBC really doesn’t have much faith in CF considering that they have yet to air a repeat all season. Isn’t that the point of having procedurals on the schedule? It’s a good thing KW was a complete flop, I’m sure that helped CF.

  • Edward

    Chciago Fire isn’t a procedural, DenverDean.

  • Flame

    Yeah, sorry, Fire is more a serial. Yeah, you can argue that the different fires are “procedural”, but in most cases they tie in with the overlaying plot.

    Dante’s gotta be infernal with this news.
