Total Viewers:
CBS: 4.06 million, NBC: 3.52, Fox: 3.19, ABC: 2.53, CW: 462,000

Adults 18-49:
Fox: 0.7 rating/5 share, CBS: 0.6/ 4, ABC and NBC: 0.4/ 3, CW: 0.1/ 1

One look at the network averages for this third Wednesday in November and the immediate observation is NBC not winning the evening. That was because the “Chicago” trio – “Chicago Med”, “Chicago Fire” and “Chicago Med” – were in all repeats.

Veteran “Survivor” on CBS and Fox’s “The Masked Singer” tied for first for the night in adults 18-49, each with a 0.9 rating/7 share in the demo in the Wednesday 8 p.m. hour. “Survivor” also led overall in total viewers (5.63 million versus 4.39 million for “The Masked Singer”). But both continue to experience steep declines at 9 p.m. as a result of the third edition of CBS competition series “Tough As Nails” (Viewers: #2, 2.80 million; A18-49: #2t, 0.4/ 3) and the recently introduced “Alter Ego” on Fox (Viewers: #4, 1.99 million; A18-49: #2t, 0.4/ 3). Aren’t we all just a bit maxed out on these singing competitions already? Answer: Yes!

Also on CBS was reboot “CSI: Vegas” (Viewers: #1, 3.75 million; A18-49: #1t, 0.3/ 3 at 10 p.m.), which is unlikely to return for a second season given it is not on the network’s midseason line-up.

Elsewhere, ABC had a typical Wednesday. Translation: The entire evening needs to be revamped. Take a look:

ABC/Wednesday
8:00 p.m. – “The Goldbergs”
Viewers: 3.27 million (#4), Adults 18-49: 0.5/ 4 (#3t)

8:300 p.m. – “The Wonder Years”
Viewers: 2.35 million (#4), Adults 18-49: 0.4/ 3 (#3t)

9:00 p.m. – “The Conners”
Viewers: 3.35 million (#2), Adults 18-49: 0.5/ 4 (#1t)

9:30 p.m. – “Home Economics”
Viewers: 2.17 million (#3), Adults 18-49: 0.3/ 3 (#2t)

10:00 p.m. – “A Million Little Things”
Viewers: 2.12 million (#3), Adults 18-49: 0.3/ 2 (#3)

And The CW featured dramas “D.C’s Legends of Tomorrow” (Viewers: 517,000; A18-49: 0.1/ 1 at 8 p.m.) and “Batwoman” (Viewers: 406,000; A18-49: 0.1/ 1 at 9 p.m.), which kept the network buried in the No. 5 spot.
