Law Order SVU Ratings

Ratings: SVU Ties 14-Month High

On the day that Dick Wolf semi-announced a fourth #OneChicago series, his Law & Order: SVU drew 8 million viewers and a 2.0 rating, rising two tenths in the demo to match a 14-month high.

Opening the Peacock’s night, Mysteries of Laura (7.5 mil/1.2) grew two tenths to tie an 11-month high (since Eric McCormack’s February 2015 visit). Come 10 pm, Chicago PD (8 mil/2.0) ticked up to its best-since-series launch, non-crossover rating.

Elsewhere in the ratings….

FOX | American Idol (9.7 mil/2.5) slipped 12 and 16 percent week-to-week. The Second Chance premiere retained half of that, with 4.8 mil/1.2; TVLine readers gave the Frankenstein-y drama an average grade of “B-.”

CBS | 2 Broke Girls (6.6 mil/1.7) and Mike & Molly (7.2 mil/1.6) were steady, Criminal Minds (9.3 mil/2.0) returned up a tenth (tying its season high) and Code Black (6.8 mil/1.3) ticked down from its last fresh outing.

ABC | The Middle (7.4 mil/1.9) slipped two tenths to a season low; The Goldbergs (6.3 mil/2.0), Modern Family (8.2 mil/2.6) and black-ish (6.1 mil/1.9) also ticked down. American Crime (4.3 mil/1.1) was down 10 percent and a tenth from its season opener.

    Really tired of the Benson-in-peril story lines.

    Chicago PD was excellent last night.

    And still only 8 million viewers for a repeat SVU storyline. Watch out, Warren Leight and his stans will be doing some MAJOR bragging now.

      • TC says:

        Ok, Warren.

          It’s actually pretty true. Those views PLUS the overnight and DVR numbers are keeping this show alive. Combined with both, its viewers jump to about 11-12 million. Not to mention, Hulu’s viewers also count. The show is still doing pretty great (even if it has repeat storylines).

      I didn’t like last season, but damn this season is so awesome! The storyline is amazing, the cast is perfect, I love the mystery and the layers. So good!

    Kudos to 2 Broke Girls on its 100th episode but I’m not sure that if the sitcom gets renewed, maybe just maybe a proper “final season” or will it go beyond?

  6. FormerCastleFan says:

    Law & Order is still going strong 17 seasons (I gave up after CM left) and is a spin off of a show that went 20 seasons and the folks at Castle claim to be out of ideas after 150 episodes…

    Delusional fangirls.

  8. kmw says:

    Good for NBC. Surprised that both SVU and Laura went up. Too bad for The Middle. Even though Idol slipped Second Chance couldn’t even hold on to half of it. That show did worse than I thought. I predict Empire coming back sooner rather than March 30th.

    Benson was in control! Not a victim! Mariska played it perfect, low-key, controlled, and then punched his lights out, loved it!
