[via press release from NBC]

Wednesday Primetime Results:

* At 10 p.m. ET, "Chicago Fire" (1.9/5 in adults 18-49, 6.5 million viewers overall) won the time period among ABC, CBS and NBC in adults 18-49 over originals of "CSI" and "Nashville," marking the first time "Chicago Fire" has beaten an original "CSI" in 18-49 (after previously tying a "CSI" original on February 13). "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. Among all other new dramas this season on ABC, CBS and NBC and Fox, only Fox's "The Following" has matched or beaten its premiere 18-49 rating, which it's done one time.

* At 9 p.m. ET, "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit" (1.6/4 in adults 18-49, 5.6 million viewers overall) equaled last week's 18-49 result and matched its top rating since January 30.

* 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.
