  1. Anthony

    Chicago Med’s ratings have been very consistent this season.


  2. 69 Road Runner

    The Masked Singer scored well but is still a whole lot lower than where it was last year


  3. Mathew

    Ouch I thought the fact the fosters cast came back for this episode would help good trouble not hurt it.


  4. LC

    South Park is back to 2014 levels of live viewership, that’s pretty good


  5. Augus

    South Park’s MTV2 simulcast ratings?


  6. Dave

    It’s really something how reliable the Chicago block is for NBC on Wednesdays. Prolly the smartest thing they did in the last three television seasons.


  7. Matt

    Wow. That’s actually high for Nancy Drew.
