Wednesday Final Nationals: ‘SEAL Team’ Delivers 18-Month High in CBS 9 p.m. Time Period Audience

The first Wednesday night of 2017-18 was jointly won by CBS and Fox. All key adult demos were led by Fox, thanks to the season premieres of “Empire” and “Star”.

CBS was tops in total viewers (8.4 million). The night’s most-watched TV telecast was the series premiere of military drama “SEAL Team”. In viewers, “SEAL Team” (9.87 million) grew 19 percent from its lead-in, the 35th season premiere of “Survivor.” CBS research reports “SEAL Team” delivered the best audience figure in the network’s Wednesday 9 p.m. time slot since a March 23, 2016 episode of “Criminal Minds”.

  1. TBS continues to suffer as expected with the ever awful Samantha Bee. Another couple Big Bang re-runs would tower over her ratings… But TBS keeps treating her and her husband as if their were Royals…
