Final Broadcast Ratings: December 14, 2016

FOX wins the Wednesday night ratings, but it may have been a bit of a disappointment for the executives at FOX. At 8 PM, EMPIRE, the #1 show in all three demographics, posts its second lowest rated night of the season, with 7.6 million viewers and a 2.7 rating in Adults 18-49. That is up from last week's 9 PM episode by two-tenths of a point in the demo. The premiere of the new spin-off series STAR, from EMPIRE, only kept 71% of the A18-34 demographic and 81% in the A18-49 demographic. That is down from last week's EMPIRE, in the time slot. Both series are better than anything else FOX has been scheduling, but the ride of EMPIRE may be close to ending.

CBS was the #2 network on the night, with the season finale and reunion of SURVIVOR. The veteran reality series drew the most viewers on the night, with 9.1 million and was #4 overall in the A18-49 demo, with a 1.9 rating. The Reunion show, at 10 PM, won the hour in total viewers and in the A25-54 demo.

NBC and ABC battled it our for third place, with ABC doing better in the A18-49 demo  and tying NBC in the A25-54 demo, while NBC had more total viewers and a better A18-34 demo rating. SNL Christmas was the top performer in the 10 PM hour, with DESIGNATED SURVIVOR running third in the hour.
