NBC’s Chicago Med this Thursday drew 7.4 million total viewers and a 1.4 rating (per finals), rising 18 and 27 percent week-to-week to deliver its most-watched episode of the season and a 4-month demo high (excluding its recent apres-Voice airing).

NBC notes that Med is its first regular program to ever match ABC’s Scandal in the demo. Leading out of that, Blacklist: Redemption (4.1 mil/0.7) was flat.

Opening the Peacock’s night, Superstore (4.2 mil/1.1) rose 20 percent in audience while steady in the demo. An 8:30 Trial & Error encore (3.2 mil/0.8) outperformed the most recent Powerless (2.4 mil/0.7).


CBS | NCAA men’s basketball tournament action averaged 4.5 mil and a 1.3 during primetime, on par with a year ago and down 35 percent and a tenth from last Thursday’s scripted lineup.

ABC |Grey’s Anatomy (7.9 mil/2.0) rose 10 percent and a tenth, up in the demo from last week’s all-time low. Scandal (5.6 mil/1.4) was flat, The Catch (3.8 mil/0.7) dipped.

FOX |MasterChef Junior (4 mil/1.1) was steady, while Kicking & Screaming (1.9 mil/0.6) ticked down from its premiere.
