The 400th (more or less) episode of “Law & Order: SVU” got a bit of ratings bump Wednesday night. The show scored a 1.6 rating in adults 18-49, its second-best mark of the season and a seven-episode high. That didn’t carry over, however, to “Chicago PD,” which was off 0.2 vs. its last episode with a 1.3. “Blindspot” matched the 0.9 for its last original.
At CBS, “Criminal Minds” dipped a tenth of a point week to week, earning a series-low 1.2. “Hunted” also came in at 1.2, while the season finale of “Code Black” fell 0.2 from last week at 0.9.
“The Goldbergs” (1.7, -0.3) and “Modern Family” (2.2, -0.1) were both down from their last episodes but helped carry ABC to a win for the night. “Black-ish” (1.6, +0.2) improved on last original, and “Speechless” held steady at 1.6.
“Arrow” (0.6) and “The 100” (0.4) were both even with last week for The CW. FOX’s “Star” also held steady at 1.3, but “Lethal Weapon” was down a tenth to 1.3.

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.
