JEOPARDY remained champion.

DEMOGRAPHIC DETAIL: For each broadcast program (or hour segment), the chart below displays preliminary live+same day key advertiser demographics (adult 18-34, 18-49 and 25-54 ratings), audience skews (women 18-49, men 18-49 and adults 50+ shares) and total viewership (thousands of people over the age of 2).

Ratings analysis and comparisons follow the chart.

ABC:  JEOPARDY! THE GREATEST OF ALL TIME dipped just 0.1 from its big start to 2.3.  As was the case on Tuesday, it was also a terrific lead-in, boosting MODERN FAMILY 0.6 from its last airing on December 11 to 1.5.  SINGLE PARENTS was up 0.3 to 0.9, and STUMPTOWN was steady at 0.5.

CBS:  The season premiere of UNDERCOVER BOSS was up 0.1 from its May 2018 premiere to 0.7.  The 2-hour CRIMINAL MINDS season premiere was at 0.7/0.7, steady with its October 2018 premiere.

NBC:  The line-up aired for the first time since November 20, with CHICAGO MED down 0.1 to 1.1, CHICAGO FIRE also down 0.1 to 1.1, and CHICAGO PD down 0.1 to 1.0.

FOX:  Things got even worse for FLIRTY DANCING, down 0.1 to 0.3.  ALMOST FAMILY held last week’s 0.3.

CW:  Reruns at 0.1/0.1.

Tonight, the NBC and CBS line-ups return from their holiday break, and ABC’s JEOPARDY specials come to an end.
