Chicago PD Premiere

via press note:

  • From 10:01-11 p.m. ET, the debut of Chicago P.D. (2.0/6 in 18-49, 8.6 million viewers overall) scored the #2 debut rating among nine new 10 p.m. dramas so far this season on ABC, CBS or NBC in 18-49, behind only “The Blacklist” (3.8).  It’s also the #2 debut of a 10 p.m. drama on those nets in total viewers, again behind only “The Blacklist” (12.6 million).  “Chicago P.D.” is #2 in the time period among ABC, CBS and NBC in adults 18-49 and #1 among men 18-49 and men 25-54.  This is NBC’s second-best 18-49 rating in the time period in more than three months, since Sept. 25, trailing over that span only a Dec. 4 “Saturday Night Live” special.  In total viewers, it’s NBC’s top result in the hour since Sept. 25.
 
  • The 2.0 rating in adults 18-49 is within a tenth of a point of the highest “live plus same day” rating for a regularly scheduled Wednesday 10 p.m. drama so far this season on ABC, CBS or NBC (includes “CSI” and “Nashville”).
 
  • “Chicago P.D.” retained 95% of its lead-in from “SVU” (2.1 at 9 p.m.), which scored its highest rating since Sept. 25 during premiere week.
 
  • With its first original telecast in seven weeks, “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit” (2.1/6 in adults 18-49, 8.9 million viewers overall from 9-10:01 p.m. ET) jumped 31% versus its prior first-run episode on Nov. 20 (1.6/4), to achieve the show’s highest rating since a special two-hour season premiere on Sept. 25.  It’s the highest 18-49 rating for a one-hour “SVU” in the past year (since a 2.1 on Jan. 9, 2013).  In the time period, “SVU” is #2 among ABC, CBS, NBC and Fox in total viewers and tied for #2 in adults 18-34.
 
  • In total viewers, this is the top “SVU” since the two-hour Sept. 25 season premiere and highest for a one-hour ‘SVU” in more than two years (since Nov. 30, 2011, 9.900 million).
 
  • L+7 Time-Shifting: The prior first-run telecast of “Law & Order: SVU” on Nov. 20 added 59% or 0.93 of a point to its next-day “live plus same day” 18-49 rating (to a 2.51 in L+3 from a 1.58 in L+SD).
 
  • With its first original telecast in seven weeks, “Revolution” (1.6/5 in adults 18-49, 6.0 million viewers overall from 8-9 p.m. ET) jumped 14% versus its prior telecast (1.4/4 on Nov. 20), making this the top “Revolution” since the season premiere on Sept. 25 (1.8).  It’s also the top “Revolution” since Sept. 25 in total viewers, with a 13% increase over the prior original telecast on Nov. 20 (6.047 million vs. 5.372 million viewers overall).
 
  • For its second half-hour from 8:30-9, “Revolution” tied for #1 among the Big 4 in 18-49.  For the full hour, “Revolution” tied for #2 in adults 18-49 and was #1 among men 18-49.
 
  • L+7 Time-Shifting: The prior original episode of “Revolution” on Nov. 20 added 64% or 0.91 of a point to its next-day “live plus same day” 18-49 rating (to a 2.33 in L+3 from a 1.42 in L+SD).
