Dick Wolf’s Chicago Fire was the second most-watched primetime show of the week on the broadcast networks and tied for the lead among adults 18-49 after a week of delayed viewing (excluding football in both cases). Franchise mates Chicago PD and Chicago Med also made the top 10 in both measures.
Five of the week’s seven biggest gainers from seven-day DVR playback air on that night, led by CBS’s Big Bang Theory. Other biggies: How to Get Away With Murder, Grey’s Anatomy and Scandal.
Incorporating seven days of program viewing data for selling metrics to TV advertisers, broadcast networks continue to see growth in time-shifting for their top shows.
