Wednesday Ratings: Clean Sweep for NBC’s ‘Chicago’ Trio

WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 12, 2022
Fast Affiliate Ratings
Total Viewers: 
NBC: 6.68 million, CBS: 3.52, ABC: 2.54, Fox: 2.02, CW: 551,000
Adults 18-49:
NBC: 0.8 rating/6 share, Fox: 0.5/ 3, ABC and CBS: 0.4/ 3, CW: 0.1/ 1
It was a clean sweep for NBC care of the “Chicago” trio: “Chicago Med” (Viewers: 7.12 million; A18-49: 0.8 rating/6 share at 8 p.m.), “Chicago Fire” (Viewers: 7.24 million; A18-49: 0.8/ 6 at 9 p.m.) and “Chicago PD” (Viewers: 5.66 million; A18-49: 0.7/ 6 at 10 p.m.).
On CBS, a new primetime edition of game show “The Price Is Right” was on the fast affiliate map with 4.75 million viewers (#2) and a 0.6/ 4 in adults 18-49 (#2) at 8 p.m. And that led into 3.39 million viewers (#2) and a 0.5/ 3 in the demo for veteran “The Amazing Race” at 9 p.m. But recently introduced “Good Sam” does not live up to the “good” in its title, with just 2.42 million viewers (#2) and a 0.2/ 2 in adults 18-49 (#3). Even so, “Good Sam” did deliver more viewers than competing ABC game show “The Chase” (Viewers: #3, 2.08 million; A18-49: 0.3/ 3).
Earlier in the evening on ABC was the modest two-hour sitcom block, with “The Wonder Years” and sophomore “Home Economics” the particular weak links. Take a look:
ABC/Wednesday
8:00 p.m. “The Goldbergs”
Viewers: 3.39 million (#3), A18-49: 0.6/ 5 (#2t)
8:30 p.m. “The Wonder Years”
Viewers: 2.45 million (#3), A18-49: 0.4/ 3 (#3t)
8:00 p.m. “The Conners”
Viewers: 3.15 million (#3), A18-49: 0.5/ 4 (#2t)
8:00 p.m. “Home Economics”
Viewers: 2.08 million (#3), A18-49: 0.4/ 3 (#3t)
Elsewhere, Fox featured singing competition “I Can See Your Voice” (Viewers: #4, 2.20 million; A18-49: #4, 0.4/ 3 at 8 p.m.) and the latest cooking competition from Gordon Ramsey, “Next Level Chef” (Viewers: #4, 1.84 million; A180-49: #2t, 0.5/ 4 at 9 p.m.). Needless to say, Gordon Ramsay is the definition of overkill on Fox. And The CW aired “D.C.’s Legends of Tomorrow” (Viewers: #5, 582,000; A18-49: #5, 0.1/ 1 at 8 p.m.) and “Batwoman” (Viewers: #5, 519,000; A18-49: 0.1/ 1 at 9 p.m.). Whoever does eventually buy The CW may want to cut back on all these low-rated superhero dramas.
