Thursday Final Nationals: With ‘The Voice’, NBC Wins Rare Non-Football Thursday

With most CBS shows in reruns, ABC’s miniseries “When We Rise” continuing to draw minimal ratings and a special edition of “The Voice” on the night, NBC won Thursday night overall — a rarity for the network on a non-sports Thursday. NBC won each half-hour in prime time and has been tops on television for the fourth consecutive evening.

As for “The Voice,” it delivered NBC’s best non-sports performance in total viewers and in adults 18-49 within the Thursday 8-9 p.m. hour since Dec. 3, 2015.

Chicago Med” at 9 p.m. registered its best ratings in ten months (since Apr. 26, 2016), while “The Blacklist: Redemption” at 10 p.m. became the first new Big-4 network drama this season (among the 19 introduced) to increase in adults 18-49 for its second week. The latter was also the first mid-season drama to show Week 2 growth since Fox’s “Empire” in Jan. 2015.
