“Chicago PD” and “Chicago Fire” each finished their seasons in the week of May 7, and “Chicago Med” aired its second-to-last episode of the season. “PD” ended up with the biggest episode among the three NBC shows.

Both “PD” and “Fire” grew by 0.9 points in adults 18-49 with a week of delayed viewing. By virtue of a higher initial ratings, however, “PD” tops the Chicago list with a 2.1 rating vs. 1.9 for “Fire” and 1.8 for “Med.”

The three shows also had the sixth-, seventh- and eighth-largest viewer gains for the week. The finale of “The Big Bang Theory” got the biggest delayed-viewing boosts across the board.

Here are the broadcast Live +7 rankings for May 7-13, 2018. They include only first-run series and specials, not repeats.
