Ratings Breakdown:
Veteran “Survivor” topped this second Wednesday in April, with a 4.7 rating/ 8 share in the household overnights at 8 p.m. With NBC’s “Chicago”-trio in repeats, CBS topped the evening, besting No. 2 Fox by one-half of a rating point. Fox, of course, featured dramas “Empire” (#2: 3.4/ 6 at 8 p.m.), which remains a shell of its heyday, and “Star” (#3t, 2.7/ 5 at 9 p.m.).
With recent realty/competition entry “Million Dollar Mile” banished to Saturday, an encore telecast of the Eye’s “NCIS” (#2: 2.8/ 5) filled the Wednesday 9 p.m. hour. And that led into relocated “SEAL Team” at a 3.2/ 6, which opposite a repeat of “Chicago PD” (#2: 2.6/ 5) topped the 10 p.m. hour. Comparably, “SEAL Team” outdelivered “Whiskey Cavalier” on ABC (#3: 2.5/ 5) by 28 percent.
Elsewhere, ABC had nothing usual to report with its Wednesday 8-10 p.m. sitcom block, and soon-to-conclude “Jane the Virgin” remained off the overnight household charts as follows:
