Ratings: ‘Chicago PD’ Clubs CBS’ ‘Criminal Minds’ Finale at 10PM

Fox won another Wednesday in the key 18-49 demo with its solid combo of “Empire” and “Star,” though it was NBC that claimed primetime’s most viewers with a special “The Voice” and a pair of procedurals — including a “Chicago P.D.” beatdown of CBS’ “Criminal Minds” season finale at 10 p.m.

Running a number of reruns, ABC settled for a distant fourth place last night. The CW ended up dead last — including the Spanish-language networks — despite airing the season premiere of “The Originals.”

Fox was first in ratings with a 1.5 rating/6 share in the advertiser-coveted 18-49 demographic and third in total viewers with an average of 4.7 million, according to preliminary numbers. “Empire” at 8 earned a 1.7/7 and 5.3 million viewers. At 9, “Star” had a 1.3/5 and 4 million viewers.

CBS was third in ratings with a 1.1/5 and second in viewers with 6.3 million. “Survivor” at 8 put up a 1.6/7 and 7.7 million viewers. At 9, the night’s first “Criminal Minds” episode managed a 1.0/4 and 6 million viewers. A second hour at 10 dipped to a 0.9/4 and 5.3 million viewers.

ABC was fourth in ratings with a 0.7/3 and in viewers with 3.2 million. Between some repeats, “Alex, Inc.” at 8:30 settled for a 0.6/3 and 2.9 million viewers. A new “Designated Survivor” at 10 finished primetime to a 0.6/2 and 3.5 million viewers.
