Wednesday night was a mixed night for TV shows. SWAT’s TV ratings jumped up, while Nancy Drew’s were mixed for the night. Here’s a look at Nov. 6 ratings.
Wednesday night was a mixed night when it came to the TV ratings. While SWAT was up and Stumptown was steady, Nancy Drew had mixed results. Meanwhile, the One Chicago lineup was down in the demo throughout. Here’s a look at the Nov. 6 TV ratings.
The Masked Singer was unsurprisingly the winner of the night in the demo, scoring 2.0 throughout its two-hour slot. However, that was a 7% drop from the previous new episode. There’s nothing to worry about as the music reality series has been renewed for a third season.

While the FOX series did well in the total audience, it was Chicago Fire that won in that metric, pulling in 7.64 million viewers. It was a 2.5% uptick from the previous episode, but the demo was 14% down. I don’t think this is something to be concerned about just yet.
NBC’s One Chicago lineup is a strong selling point for the network. Out of the three shows, Chicago PD is the one with the lowest ratings, sitting at 6.44 million viewers last night.
ABC and CBS had mixed nights in the Wednesday TV ratings. While The Goldbergs was up by 2% demo and 5% in the total audience, Schooled dropped in the demo. The drop in the demo continued with Modern Family and Single Parents, with their total audiences remained steady.
However, the freshman series did bring a little more positivity. Stumptown was steady in the demo and up by 5% in the total audience. It was still the lowest of the timeslot but continues the hope of renewal after the extension to a full-season order.
As for CBS, Survivor was up by 10% in the demo and 6% in the total audience. Sadly, SEAL Team fans didn’t tune in for the followup to last episode’s mission to protect an ambassador, with the show dropping 4% in the demo.
SWAT had a good night, despite its difficult timeslot. It was up 12% in the total audience to 3.84 million, while the demo was up 4% back to 0.5.
But what about The CW? After a bad night on Tuesday, the ratings were more positive on Nov. 6, although they were mixed. Riverdale was down by almost 5% in the demo, but did tick up 8% in the total audience. Nancy Drew was the one with the best night in the demo, up by 42% back to a 0.2 rating. Sadly, the total audience was down by 8% to a season-low.
The drop isn’t too much of a concern for the CW series. As it’s a CBS Studios series, it costs less for The CW to air it. Plus, the show will head to CBS All Access after its full-season run, which could mean a tick up in the ratings similarly to the way Netflix has helped the likes of Riverdale, Dynasty, and All American in the past.
