Last night’s ratings are in, and the picture that is being painted now is relatively clear. Chicago Justice is solid, but we do think that it does still have a ways to go.
The Chicago Justice episode 3 ratings were in total a 1.3 in the 18-49 demographic, which are its lowest demo total of the season so far. The biggest caveat that we can offer the show is that it was asking a lot of its viewers to want to watch the third episode in under a week, especially with them all fluctuating around from one timeslot to the next. Our biggest question is how it will do on Sunday as it starts to settle into a more stable airing pattern. Our sentiment for now is that it’ll get another season, but beyond that it will be interesting to learn if having for shows set in one city with crossovers aplenty is sustainable in the long-term.
For those who missed it, check out our Chicago Justice episode 3 review from last night.
This Is Us and its continued dominance
One thing that probably helped the ratings for Justice was the sole fact that it was airing after This Is Us, a show that showcased even further ratings dominance on the air last night. With a 2.9 rating in the demo, it came extremely close to breaking a new record for itself there. It did actually set a new high when it comes to getting over 11 million viewers. With next week marking the finale, this could be your opportunity to really see if the numbers end up skyrocketing in any form.
Was Kate responsible for Jack’s death? That’s something that the show will probably give us a better sense of over time.
Other odds and ends
-After taking a week off, Legends of Tomorrow returned last night to one of its lowest ratings yet in a 0.5 — in turn, this is one of the lowest ratings for the DC Universe on The CW so far. The show aired after The Flash, which also dropped to a 0.9 … not that the network should be that upset about that.
-Overall, the CBS lineup of NCIS, Bull, and NCIS: New Orleans held fairly steady with a 1.6, a 1.3, and a 1.1 in the demo. All of these shows should be coming back for another season, so nothing to worry about here.
