    Ratings Breakdown:
    There was nothing unusual to report on this second Wednesday in November. Fox won the evening on the strength of “Empire,” which topped the night at a 5.6 rating/9 share in the metered market households. Comparably, however, that was a loss of a noticeable 29 percent from the 7.9/12 in the overnights on the year-ago evening. And the lead-in support last night, “Lethal Weapon” (#2: 4.4/ 7 at 8 p.m.), remains a stronger option than year-ago time period occupant “Rosewood.”

    On CBS, warhorse “Survivor” keeps on ticking with a dominant 5.4/ 9 at 8 p.m. into a second-place 4.8/ 8 for veteran “Criminal Minds” at 9 p.m. Both hours were on par with year-ago overnight levels. But sophomore medical drama “Code Black” slipped to third at 10 p.m. with a 3.6/ 6, which was 14 percent below the 4.2/ 7 on the year-ago evening.

    Top-rated on ABC on Wednesday, as always, was sitcom “Modern Family” at a 5.2/ 8 (#2) in the 9 p.m. half-hour, which increased from lead-in “Speechless” (#3: 3.8/ 6 at 8:30 p.m.) by 37 percent. Next was ‘black-ish” at a typical 3.7/ 6, which dipped to fourth in the 9:30 p.m. time period. And recent drama entry “Designated Survivor” closed the night with a series-low 4.1/ 7 at 10 p.m., which tied competing “Chicago PD” on NBC for first in the hour. While “Designated Survivor” remains a marked improvement over year-ago time period occupant “Nashville,” it has lost noticeable steam from those earlier weeks.

    Also on ABC was “The Goldbergs” at a 4.4/ 7 at 8 p.m., which demographically remains a respectable draw in the young adult categories.

    On NBC, a 9 p.m. installment of “Chicago PD” scored a 3.9/ 6, which was on par with overnight levels for the regularly scheduled “Law & Order: SVU.” “Blindspot” opened the night for NBC with a 3.5/ 6 at 8 p.m., which compared to older-skewing year-ago “The Mysteries of Laura” (4.7/ 8 on 11/18/15) was down by 26 percent.

    Over at The CW, “Arrow” opened with a typical 1.5/ 2 in the overnights at 8 p.m., followed by newbie “Frequency” at a 0.7 at 9 p.m. Both “Frequency” and “No Tomorrow” will not be producing any new episodes past the initial 13.

  • About the Daily Ratings - Please Read if you are new to Ratings
    Each day (except Sunday) during the main TV Season we post the TV Ratings for the previous nights primetime shows for the major broadcast networks (ABC, CBS, CW, FOX, NBC). Cable Network ratings will be added to the Ratings Database.

    The first item that gets posted (normally around 2pm GMT) is the early overnight analysis based on the early household numbers (these are not the same as the Total Viewers and 18-49 Demo numbers that are posted later).

    Next, if available, we will post the Top 25 Market 18-49 Ratings to give you a rough idea of the ratings to following.

    Later on (normally between 4pm-5pm GMT) we post the official early overnight Total Viewers and 18-49 Demo numbers in the table above (We also where possible now post the 18-34 and 25-54 Demo Numbers).

    Finally, later in the evening (10pm-11pm GMT) or the following day, the final adjusted ratings numbers are released, these are then posted in the Ratings Database. The Final Adjusted numbers are what we use for all our Renew/Cancellation Tables, Full Season Tables, Ratings Scorecards etc (see below). Friday's Final Adjusted Ratings are normally available on the following Monday.

    If you are new to ratings or still confused, we recommend you read this excellent
    Ratings FAQ.
