NBC has found ratings success with their Chicago franchise from Dick Wolf. Chicago Fire and Chicago PD have already been renewed for the 2016-17 season. Will the newest entry, Chicago Med, be a hit or a dud? Cancelled or renewed for a second season? Stay tuned.
Chicago Med is set at the city’s new state-of-the-art trauma center. It revolves around the doctors, nurses, and staff members who treat the most severe trauma cases. The ensemble cast includes Oliver Platt, S. Epatha Merkerson, Nick Gehlfuss, Yaya DaCosta, Colin Donnell, Brian Tee, Torrey DeVitto, Rachel DiPillo, Carl Lumbly, Julie Berman, Brennan Brown, and Marlyne Barrett.
The ratings are typically the best indication of a show’s likelihood of staying on the air. The higher the ratings (particularly the 18-49 demo), the better the chances for survival. This chart will be updated as new ratings data becomes available — usually the next day, around 11:30am EST/8:30am PST. Refresh to see the latest.

Note: Note: These are the Live + Same Day Ratings which include “live” viewing plus delayed DVR viewing, up until 3am local time that same night. Ratings marked with an “*” are the fast affiliate ratings and will be updated with the Live+SD numbers when they are made available. Typically, networks get paid for C+3 ratings which includes DVR viewing within three days of the original airing when commercials are watched. Those numbers are rarely released to the press.
