The premiere of “Chicago Med” (2.2 in adults 18-49) scored solid numbers for NBC, holding 85 percent of its “Voice” lead-in and topping the debuts of sister shows “Chicago Fire” (1.9) and “Chicago PD” (2.0). It came in a little higher than the largest number of TVBTN users predicted in the guess the ratings poll.

The rest of the night was a mixed bag. “Chicago Fire” dipped a little from last week. So did “The Flash” (1.3, -0.2) and “iZombie” (0.5, -0.1) on The CW and all three CBS dramas, which were down a tenth.

On the upside, “Fresh Off the Boat” rose a tenth for ABC, as did “The Grinder” (albeit only to a 0.9) for FOX. A “Shark Tank” rerun on ABC drew a 0.7, three tenths better than “Wicked City” did last week.

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.
