“Chicago Med” drew its best ratings of the season Thursday, thanks in part to a much better lead-in than it usually has. The show scored a 1.7 rating in adults 18-49, 0.2 better than its previous season high, and 8.77 million viewers, easily its biggest total audience of the season.
A Thursday edition of “The Voice” (2.3) led into “Med” and was the night’s top show. “The Blacklist: Redemption” (1.0) was up as well, improving on its premiere by two tenths of a point.
The finale of “My Kitchen Rules” on FOX (0.8) rose slightly from last week, but “Masterchef Junior” fell a tenth to 1.1. “Supernatural” was even with last week’s 0.6 for The CW. “Riverdale” was up a tenth to 0.4. CBS’ “Training Day” (0.8) also improved following a block of comedy reruns. Night 3 of “When We Rise” on ABC managed just a 0.5.

Rating: Estimated percentage of the universe of TV households (or other specified group) tuned to a program in the average minute. Ratings are expressed as a percent.
Fast Affiliate Ratings: These first national ratings are available at approximately 11 a.m. ET the day after telecast. The figures may include stations that did not air the entire network feed, as well as local news breaks or cutaways for local coverage or other programming. Fast Affiliate ratings are not as useful for live programs and are likely to differ significantly from the final results, because the data reflect normal broadcast feed patterns.
Share (of Audience): The percent of households (or persons) using television who are tuned to a specific program, station or network in a specific area at a specific time.
Time Shifted Viewing: Program ratings for national sources are produced in three streams of data – Live, Live +Same-Day and Live +7 Day. Time-shifted figures account for incremental viewing that takes place with DVRs. Live+SD includes viewing during the same broadcast day as the original telecast, with a cut-off of 3 a.m. local time when meters transmit daily viewing to Nielsen for processing. Live +7 ratings include viewing that takes place during the 7 days following a telecast.
