While many network TV shows lost a lot of “live” viewers last season, NBC’s Chicago PD beat the odds and held steady in season three. How will it do in the ratings this time around? Could it be cancelled or will it surely be renewed for a fifth season? Stay tuned.
Chicago PD follows 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 (Jason Beghe) is at the heart of the war on crime in Chicago and will do anything to bring criminals to justice. The series also features the talents of Sophia Bush, Patrick John Flueger, LaRoyce Hawkins, Elias Koteas, Jon Seda, Jesse Lee Soffer, Marina Squerciati, and Amy Morton.
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.

For comparisons: The third season of Chicago PD averaged a 1.55 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 6.88 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.
