NBC's CHICAGO P.D. Grows for 2nd Straight Week

From 10:01-11 p.m. ET, "Chicago P.D." (1.7/5 in 18-49, 6.9 million viewers overall) is up in 18-49 and total viewers for a second week in a row and ranks #1 in the 10 p.m. hour in those and most other key measures among ABC, CBS and NBC (vs. a "Nashville" original and "CSI" encore), pending updates. "Chicago P.D." retained 89% of its lead-in in 18-49 and retained 91% of that lead-in in total viewers. Note that last week's "Chicago P.D." grew by 51% in L+3 versus these L+SD figures (details below).



"Chicago P.D." is the first new drama on the Big 4 this season to grow with two of its first three telecasts to follow the show's debut. "Chicago P.D." is up versus the prior week by 6% in 18-49 rating (1.7 vs. 1.6) and up versus two weeks ago by 13% (1.7 vs. 1.5), pending updates.

"Law & Order: Special Victims Unit" (1.9/5 in adults 18-49, 7.5 million viewers overall from 9-10:01 p.m. ET) grew week to week in 18-49 and total viewers for a second straight week and ranked #2 in the time period among the Big 4 in virtually all key measures.

Last night's "SVU" grew from half-hour to half-hour in every key measure, including gains of 11% in adults 18-49 (to a 2.0 rating from a 1.8) and 19% in women 18-49 (2.5 vs. 2.1).



"Revolution" averaged a 1.3/4 in adults 18-49 and 5.1 million viewers overall from 8-9 p.m. ET.



L+3 Time Shifting: Last week's editions of NBC's Wednesday dramas were all significantly time-shifted: "Revolution" grew by 47% in 18-49 going from these next-day "live plus same day" ratings to "live plus three day" (to a 2.21 from a 1.50), "SVU" was up by 44% (2.66 vs. 1.85) and "Chicago P.D." increased by 51% (2.45 vs. 1.62).
