The 2 major shared universes on NBC and ABC returned to the airwaves this week, with the three reveals of One Chicago on Wednesday, November 11 and Enviornment 19/Grey’s Anatomy on Thursday, November 12. These are five of the supreme reveals on television, and in a rare television occasion, ABC in actual fact aired two episodes of Grey’s Anatomy in a single evening. All of this begs the question: which network obtained premiere week within the shared universe rankings? Used to be it the three dramas field in Chicago, or the first responders and surgeons of Seattle?
Well, the Live+Same day numbers are in for the Chicago Med, Chicago Fire, and Chicago P.D. premieres on Wednesdays as effectively as the Enviornment 19 and Grey’s Anatomy crossover premiere occasion on Thursday, so now’s the time to dangle interaction a witness at how many folks tuned in and whether NBC or ABC used to be the winner when taking the entire variables into narrative. Let’s commence up with Wednesday!
One Chicago (NBC)
All three One Chicago sequence ended prematurely due to this of manufacturing shutdowns support in April, and all three returned enormously later than well-liked. Assuming audiences did now not forget about Chicago Med, Chicago Fire, and Chicago P.D. over the long hiatus, the rankings and audience dimension had been likely to be spectacular, but no longer necessarily on par with the outdated seasons, namely coming to Wednesdays when The Masked Singer most continuously dominates.
Essentially based on the Wednesday, November 11 numbers from ShowBuzzDaily, Chicago Med‘s Season 6 premiere at 8 p.m. ET simply about obtained the evening in rankings when it involves the most foremost 18-49 age demographic with a 1.2, coming in on the support of handiest The Masked Singer with its unbeatable 1.6. As for viewership, Med used to be on high of the evening with 7.8 million folks tuning in over The Masked Singer‘s 6 million at 8 p.m.
Chicago Fire (NBC)
Chicago Fire without extend followed Chicago Med with its Season 9 premiere at 9 p.m. ET, and it performed respectably as effectively. Fire tied for third amongst ongoing sequence within the rankings with a 1.0, coming in on the support of appropriate Chicago Med and The Masked Singer. In regards to viewership, 7.2 million folks tuned in, pushing Fire to the tip within the 9 p.m. ET time slot.
Chicago P.D. (NBC)
And that brings us to Chicago P.D., which is arguably essentially the most attention-grabbing One Chicago sequence when it involves the rankings due to this of its tendency to coming in third on the support of Med and Fire in Live+Same Day but fully crush in delayed viewership. The Season 8 premiere at 10 p.m. ET used to be no exception to the Live+Same pattern, with the 1.0 rating that tied Fire and the 6.4 million that used to be effectively below Fire and Med. P.D. did barely with out anguish beat the competition within the time slot in rankings and viewership at 10 p.m., even supposing.
So, how does the shared universe of Enviornment 19 and Grey’s Anatomy overview after their new season premieres on Thursday? Let’s engage a witness!
Enviornment 19 And Grey’s Anatomy
Enviornment 19 and Grey’s Anatomy were paired in primetime for the previous couple of seasons with the spinoff airing sooner than the long-operating mother or father sequence, to blended responses from followers. That acknowledged, Enviornment 19 Season 4 and Grey’s Anatomy Season 17 had been debuting with what used to be hyped as a three-hour crossover occasion after a long hiatus, so the numbers had been sure to spectacular. Right here’s appropriate how spectacular the premiere numbers had been.
Enviornment 19 (ABC)
Essentially based on the numbers for Thursday, November 12 courtesy of ShowBuzzDaily, Enviornment 19 (which in actual fact used to be in a situation to discontinuance its outdated season as supposed) opened the three-hour crossover at 8 p.m. with just a few of the most effective numbers of the evening within the 18-49 age demographic. The 1.2 rating allowed it to with out anguish clutch the 8 p.m. slot amongst ongoing sequence (with Fox’s NFL broadcast dominating the entire competition for the evening), and it came in second in viewership with 6.6 million on the support of handiest Younger Sheldon, which in actual fact airs within the same 8 p.m. slot.
Grey’s Anatomy (ABC)
Grey’s Anatomy in actual fact aired two episodes, at 9 p.m. and 10 p.m. ET, allowing the long-operating sequence to discontinuance Season 17 premiere evening on a killer cliffhanger. The common from the two episodes positioned the rating at a 1.3, allowing it to snatch both of its time slots and beat Enviornment 19. The audience dimension used to be less spectacular, with appropriate over 5.9 million viewers tuning in. It did clutch the 9 p.m. and 10 p.m. slots with that 5.9 million, however, so it positively used to be a success for the evening.
The Winner: One Chicago
In the immense plot of things, I had to present premiere week to One Chicago, however it used to be a shut call. Even supposing Grey’s Anatomy in actual fact had the very supreme rankings of the five sequence and the very supreme-rated Chicago sequence (Med) might well maybe well handiest tie Enviornment 19, One Chicago used to be strongest in viewership on the evening in opposition to stiffer competition.
Med used to be up in opposition to the juggernaut Masked Singer and in actual fact obtained in viewership; Fire‘s audience used to be simply about twice as big as its closest competition on high of the rankings clutch over Fabulous Straggle on CBS and I Can Peep Your Verbalize on Fox. P.D. with its 1.0 and 6.4 million smashed the second hour of the S.W.A.T. Season 4 premiere with 0.4 and 2.5 million on CBS.
Throw within the reality that ABC in actual fact aired the Nation Tune Awards for the three hours of Wednesday primetime that attracted a 1.1 rating and 7 million audience, and One Chicago’s numbers might well maybe well effectively develop next week with out the CMAs pulling viewers.
Enviornment 19/Grey’s Anatomy might well maybe well even dangle lost viewers to the NFL game on Fox Thursday, and Fox’s scripted numbers in overall invent no longer even come shut to these on the large three networks. Quiet, I’d bet on One Chicago getting a bigger submit-CMA boost over Enviornment 19/Grey’s Anatomy getting a bigger submit-NFL boost. Thanks to the stiff competition, consistency, spectacular numbers despite the CMAs, and NBC going surprisingly gentle on the promotional field topic, I give the clutch to One Chicago.
On the Enviornment 19/Grey’s Anatomy entrance, Enviornment 19 used to be handiest up in opposition to Younger Sheldon and B Sure on CBS and Superstore on NBC within the 8 p.m. hour, making it the supreme drama offering and coming in on the support of Younger Sheldon in audience dimension. Grey’s Anatomy used to be up in opposition to barely stiffer competition with the Season 22 premiere of Regulation & Interpret: SVU in conjunction with one other drama option at 9 p.m. ET, and it did with out anguish beat SVU‘s 0.6 rating and 3 million. ABC also did a variety of hyping the three-phase crossover (which in actual fact wasn’t powerful of a crossover), and I expected increased numbers.
So, despite the shut call, I will give it to One Chicago. That acknowledged, the Grey’s Anatomy cliffhanger that used to be already being hyped within the trailer without extend following the episode might well maybe well give the sequence and ABC the boost wants to crush the competition on both networks next week. And howdy, I deem or no longer it’s safe to narrate that they’ll both with out anguish beat the Arrowverse when The CW’s shared universe returns!
