On Wednesday night, NBC had their big Chicago crossover including the series premiere of Chicago Justice. The synergy for the night yielded nice results for NBC. Chicago Fire started at 8pm and delivered its best total viewer count since December 2015. This might be a potential new timeslot for Fire next season and it certainly proved it was capable of holding its own in the hour. Chicago PD aired an hour earlier and hit a series high in total viewers and an easy season high in the demo. This also begs the question if NBC will consider moving it to the higher profile 9pm hour at some point. Finally, the series premiere of Chicago Justice ended the night. The good news is it got sampled very well and delivered a 1.7 demo, which is strong for 10pm. The only possible downside is it was the third part of a three-part crossover yet it wasn't the highest rated episode because it dropped from the PD performance at 9pm. Still, it was a great start for the fourth Chicago show and it will now try to succeed on Sundays at 9pm.

On ABC, The Goldbergs was even with last week. Modern Family aired at a special time of 8:30pm but managed to once again cling to a 2.0 demo. It's still managed to never go into the 1s but it's time is coming. Night two of When We Rise was down a million viewers and a tenth in the demo from its already very weak Monday night premiere. CBS had the season finale of Hunted and it was down three tenths in viewers and even in the demo. It quietly had a very steady run, getting either a 1.3 or 1.2 demo for every Wednesday airing. I wouldn't be surprised at all to see this return as Survivor filler next year. At 9pm, Criminal Minds was down eight tenths in viewers and even in the demo. The viewer total was a series low. On FOX, Star had to follow a repeat of Lethal Weapon and was down half a million viewers and a tenth in the demo. Finally on the CW, Arrow was up a tenth in viewers and the demo while The 100 was even with its fifth straight 0.4 demo to start its season.
