"Chicago Fire" built on its lead-in by 19 percent in 18-49 and 17 percent in total viewers. (1.9 vs. 1.6).

* "Chicago Fire" matched last week's rating, making this the eighth consecutive original that's equaled or beaten the show's debut 1.9 on October 10.

* From 8:30-9 p.m. ET, "Guys With Kids" (1.1/3 in 18-49, 3.1 million viewers overall) is up week to week by 10 percent in 18-49 rating (to a 1.1 from a 1.0) and up 11 percent in total viewers (3.148 million vs. 2.830 million), pending updates.
