  1. I’m super impressed with NBC’s numbers honestly while the demos aren’t anything to wow about they were consistent and stable as hell and unlike the other shows that aired Wednesday night these will actually hold up and not to mention there’s a crossover next week so things will stay up for them.

    The super impressive thing about NBC Wednesdays are the strong viewership didn’t expect that at all so NBC got a lot of people to watch this block the whole entire night.

    NBC has finally found a lineup on Wednesdays that they can leave alone for the next few years.

    I was one of those people that had A Million Little Things flopping on them and Single Parents might’ve premiered 5 years too late as those numbers are going to be mediocre for them. I think what makes Chicago PD so hard to go against are those female demos and AMLT shouldn’t have been scheduled there I liked Mondays or Tuesdays for it or even at 9pm behind Grey’s Anatomy on Thursdays. ABC’s inability to schedule correctly has cost them big-time.

    Chicago Med is becoming an impressive lead-off player here the show itself still hasn’t peaked either so there’s a chance to grow here.
