In terms of the 18-49 demo, nothing can beat Fox's The Masked Singer on Wednesday nights as the series once again won the night. Coming in second in the demo was CBS' Survivor: Winners at War

However, in total viewers, NBC grabbed the top spot with Chicago Med topping the night with 8.27 million viewers and successor Chicago Fire close behind with 8.23 million viewers. Chicago P.D. dropped a bit in the 10 pm hour (7.07 million) but still won the time slot.
