Last season, based on the second season success of Chicago Fire, NBC ordered a spin-off, Chicago PD. It ended up being the network’s fifth-highest rated scripted series of the season. Will the ratings rise or fall in season two? Cancelled or renewed for season three? 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. The series features the talents of Jason Beghe, Jon Seda, Sophia Bush, Jesse Lee Soffer, Patrick John Flueger, Marina Squerciati, LaRoyce Hawkins, Archie Kao, Amy Morton, Brian Geraghty, and Elias Koteas.
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.

Due to a Nielsen glitch, some of the early ratings of the 2014-15 season were revised a few weeks later.
For comparisons: The first season of Chicago PD averaged a 1.7 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 6.41 million viewers.
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.
