In the latest TV show ratings, CBS’ Survivor and NBC’s Chicago Med tied for the nightly demo win, while NBC’s Chicago Fire copped Wednesday’s largest audience.
CBS | Survivor opened Season 43 with 4.8 million total viewers and a 0.7 demo rating (and TVLine reader grade “B”), down a tick from its spring opener. The Amazing Race‘s Season 34 premiere retained just 2.9 mil/0.4 (reader grade “A-“), down sharply from its January opener.
NBC | Chicago Med (6.3 mil/0.7, reader grade “B”) returned steady in the demo versus its previous average, while Fire (6.5 mil/0.6, reader grade “B+”) and P.D. (5.4 mil/0.6, reader grade “B”) were down. Fire in fact slipped to series lows on both counts, while P.D. registered a demo low.
FOX | The Masked Singer (3.5 mil/0.6, reader grade “C+”) opened its new season with an all-time audience low and matching its demo low; LEGO Masters led out of that with 1.6 mil/0.4.
ABC | The Conners (3.5 mil/0.5, reader grade “C+”) and Big Sky (2.2 mil/0.3, reader grade “A-“) both returned steady in the demo, The Goldbergs (2.4 mil/0.4, reader grade “C”) was down (and hit an audience low), and Home Economics (2 mil/0.4) ticked up from its previous averages. Abbott Elementary (2.8 mil/0.5, reader grade “A”) on its new night matched its Season 1 audience while off just a tenth in the demo.
THE CW | Stargirl (403K/0.1) slipped to an all-time audience low opposite full-on competition.

The Live+Same Day numbers reported in our ratings column do not reflect a show’s overall performance, given the increased use of delayed playback via DVR and streaming platforms, plus out-of-home viewing. These numbers (Nielsen fast nationals, unless denoted as finals) instead aim to simply illustrate trends or superlatives. Steve Harvey is not a judge or lawyer and merely offers an alternative forum of dispute resolution.
I didn’t yet watch a bunch of things but have to say I am SO glad I watched Home Economics. That show is always so good, but their trip to Disneyland was THE BEST!!!
I love Home Economics.
Big Sky 2.2 Mil /0.3 reader grade A- I’m very please with Big Sky performance back on Wed night time slot.
You just know The CW will use that as an excuse. I hope not but I’m dreading it. Would say HBO Max to the rescue but they’re cutting stuff too. Hope this week was just a one off.
Yep, feels like they’ve been looking for an excuse and sabotaging their best show in Stargirl with the zero promotion they’ve given this season.
Feels like everyone is on the ‘Don’t you do it CW’ page when we all inevitably know the outcome that they’ll do it anyway and it’ll be awful. Would say give us a wrap up season but they don’t do that anymore for DC shows!
ABC should have had Abbott lead the night. It’s following old shows that are near its end.
Amazing Race is badly scheduled at 10 p.m. It’s a family oriented show and should be on at 8 p.m. That said, I’ll be watching it without commercials on Paramount anyway.
Home Economics is ABC’s hidden gem. Check it out if you haven’t had the chance.
