    • Me too I don’t really see too many shows hold like that anymore even the NCIS spin-off drop a ton.

      • Especially the 10:00 show. You rarely see a hold at 10:30 and sometimes you even see an increase for CF.

        • Yeah it’s real rare these days for a 10pm show to hold like that and even grow a little bit at the half-hour mark like you mentioned. Chicago Fire is a true gem for NBC these days not that huge but more than solid and serviceable. ABC and CBS would kill to have a 10pm drama these days that can perform that well.

  4. NCIS bullzoed the competition and for all of that talk about NCIS only attracting older people well it led the 8pm hour in adults 18-34 so young people are watching too and it beat demo darling The Voice as well in 18-49 too. So the next time you hear some idiot call NCIS a Senior Citizen show just show them these numbers and that’ll shut their asses up.

    Now the not so positive is NCIS: NO who continues to squander the NCIS lead-in. Unlike the Chicago twins who do a way better job of keeping the audiences between the two shows, the NCIS franchise doesn’t do that although they do have more viewers to work with to be fair. Another bad sign for NCIS: NO is getting thrown into the dumpster fire hour of 10pm which has been cursed slot since the end of the Judging Amy days, yep I went way back on you guys right there. BTW, Amy Brenneman might’ve been the sexiest judge TV or not that I ever seen. NCIS: NO is going to get exposed, I don’t think it’s as big of a fraud as Life in Pieces was behind BBT this past season but it was barely beating Chicago Med and sometimes either tied it or got beat by several times this season so Chicago Fire will handle it easily in the fall but a lot of this can depend on how strong or weak This Is Us becomes I think NBC did CBS a favor there by moving Chicago Med. Going to be interesting though but I think Bull will do fine after NCIS maybe another The Mentalist situation on its hand and hopefully CBS doesn’t screw this one up like they did the last one.

    Back to the Chicago twins another nice week for them, they weren’t able to pass up The Voice this season but they were real close all spring long. The solid flow between the two especially in their half-hours are always sensational as they make such a nice pair like SVU and PD make on Wednesdays.

    Now the question going into next season is this did NBC make the wrong mistake of breaking these two up this early?

    Chicago Med might be the second most interesting ratings draw on NBC’s schedule in the fall behind Blindspot on Wednesdays leading off. Chicago Med has a chance to really get NBC finally back on track on Thursdays and helping The Blacklist. I feel like NBC may have dodged a major bullet here if Bull does better in that slot than NCIS: NO that would make this a good move but now you have Chicago Fire with no partner like it had during that entire 2014-15 with weak lead-ins as I believe This Is Us is going to fail on them so we’ll see what happens.

    ABC will improve a little bit with The Middle leading off but I think The Middle’s best days are behind them and this block will still bomb for them as nobody cares about Fresh Off the Boat or The Real O’Neals so ABC won’t duplicate the same success they had starting in 2009 with Wednesdays, the key for that Wednesday block is that Modern Family kept the ship afloat at 9pm. So don’t expect any major improvements and based on what AOS did last night at 10pm there will be no improvement there either as ABC will head into the 2017-18 season with the same problems they’ve had on Tuesdays at 10pm they’ve had the year before and year before that one.

    Although Megyn Kelly was fractional that might’ve been the most people they’ve had outside of Idol this whole year watching anything on Tuesdays which is sad but I applaud FOX again for cancelling Grandfathered and The Grinder.
