Chicago Med Ratings Season 2

NBC’s Chicago Med this Thursday drew 7.4 million total viewers and a 1.4 rating (per finals), rising 18 and 27 percent week-to-week to deliver its most-watched episode of the season and a 4-month demo high (excluding its recent apres-Voice airing).

ABC | Grey’s Anatomy (7.9 mil/2.0) rose 10 percent and a tenth, up in the demo from last week’s all-time low. Scandal (5.6 mil/1.4) was flat, The Catch (3.8 mil/0.7) dipped.
