It was another night of NBC winning this week thanks to limited competition and a special airing of The Voice on the night. Airing at 8pm, it was down from its Monday and Tuesday numbers, but a big improvement on NBC's usual Thursday performance. It led to a season high of Chicago Med, which got to follow The Voice for the first time since last season. It had its best performance since April 2016. I have thought this show has done well given its circumstances this year and this performance shows there's definitely still an audience out there. It's had the toughest task of any of the Chicago shows. At 10pm, The Blacklist: Redemption got a halo effect for its second week, building on the series premiere by half a million viewers and two tenths in the demo. I don't see this as long term good news but it's still rare for a show to rise in week two.

Elsewhere, ABC's mini-series flop When We Rise continued to explore new lows, dropping yet another two tenths to a 0.4 It has dropped four tenths from its very weak Monday premiere at 0.8. Will it continue that trend and get a 0.2 for the finale tonight? On FOX, Masterchef Junior was down two tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo while the season finale of My Kitchen Rules was up a tenth in viewers and the demo. It will be replaced by new reality show Kicking & Screaming next week. I doubt My Kitchen Rules will be back but we'll see. On the CW, Supernatural was even while Riverdale was back up a tenth in viewers and the demo. Finally, CBS got a bump for Training Day after series star Bill Paxton's untimely death last weekend. It was up seven tenths in viewers and two tenths in the demo.
