Last year, although the Chicago PD TV slipped a little bit in the ratings, it remained a top-five show for NBC. Can it hold steady in the fifth season? Will Chicago PD be cancelled or renewed for season six? Stay tuned. *See update below.
A police procedural from the Dick Wolf franchise, the Chicago PD stars Jason Beghe, Jon Seda, Jesse Lee Soffer, Patrick John Flueger, Marina Squerciati, Elias Koteas, LaRoyce Hawkins, Amy Morton, and Tracy Spiridakos. Mykelti Williamson recurs. The NBC drama centers on the men and women of the Chicago Police Department’s District 21, who pursue the perpetrators of major street crimes in the “Windy City.” Detective Sgt. Hank Voight (Beghe) is at the heart of the war on crime in Chicago and will do anything to bring criminals to justice.
The ratings are typically the best indication of a show’s likelihood of staying on the air. The higher the ratings (particularly in 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.
5/10 update: You can see the rest of the latest night’s ratings.

For comparisons: The fourth season of Chicago PD averaged a 1.37 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 6.536 million viewers (live + same day ratings).
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.
What do you think? Do you still like the Chicago PD TV series? Should it be cancelled or renewed for a sixth season on NBC?
