“Chicago Med” opened its third season by giving NBC a bit of a ratings bump Tuesday night.
The show drew a 1.3 rating in adults 18-49, a little above last season’s average (1.2) and ahead of the 1.0 “Law & Order True Crime” averaged in the time period earlier in the fall. NBC comfortably led the night in adults 18-49 despite both “The Voice” (1.7, -0.3) and “This Is Us” (2.5, -0.1) being down week week to week.
The finale of “Dancing With the Stars” scored a 1.3, down from both of last season’s finales (1.8 in the fall and 1.4 in the spring). It’s down about 17 percent overall from the fall 2016 edition. (It was up a little in viewers vs. the spring 2017 finale.) “The Middle” (1.3) and “Fresh Off the Boat” (1.1) were both even with last week.
“NCIS” (1.4) and “NCIS: New Orleans” (0.9) were off 0.1 and 0.2 vs. last week for CBS. “Bull” was steady at 1.1. “The Flash” was also down a tenth for The CW at 0.8. “Legends of Tomorrow” and all of FOX’s shows matched last week.

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.
