Preliminary Ratings: Wednesday 03/29/2017

FOX dominates in the younger demographic ratings on a rather competitive night between the BIG 4 networks. CBS tops the night in total viewers, with 6.7 million and all four nets are within three-tenths of a point int he A25-54 demo.

EMPIRE draws in the younger viewers, posting a 2.0 rating in the A18-34 demo and a 2.4 rating in the A18-49 demo. But the hit drama was down from last week's premiere, losing 1.2 million viewers and 14% in the A18-49 demographic. New drama, SHOTS FIRED is no LETHAL WEAPON, dropping one million viewers (-31%) and a tenth of a point in the A18-49 demographic, week-to-week.

ABC's line up was back in all-originals and was in second place, across the board. MODERN FAMILY was the only other show, outside of EMPIRE, to post a 2.0, or better, in the A18-49 demographic.

CBS was a competitive third place, edging out NBC for the spot. SURVIVOR was the most watched show of the night, collecting over 8 million viewers, plus a 1.7 rating in the demo. The two CRIMINAL MINDS series are not showing any reason why CBS should renew either of them. CRIMINAL MINDS, at 9 PM, is showing its age and may have lost one too many original cast member with Thomas Gibson gone from the show, earlier this season. CM: BEYOND BORDERS has yet to show any life and consistently places third in its time slot.

With no crossovers or special episodes, NBC's crime drama line up was a decent 4th place on the night. CHICAGO PD did top the 10 PM time slot, edging out DESIGNATED SURVIVOR.
