The Ratings Junkie Sunday, January 03, 2016
Midseason week starts tonight, with the premieres of Cooper Barrett's Guide to Surviving Life at 8:30/7:30c on FOX, with Bordertown at 9:30. Some other highlights of the week:

Two Crossover Events

-NCIS and NCIS: NO will be doing a crossover event this upcoming Tuesday, January 5
-Chicago Fire, Chicago PD, and Chicago Med are also doing a crossover, airing in the following time slots:
       -Chicago Fire: Tuesday, January 5 at 9 (SPECIAL TIME)
       -Chicago Med: Tuesday, January 5 at 10 (SPECIAL TIME)
       -Chicago PD: Wednesday, January 5 at 10

Speaking of Special Time Slots...

Shark Tank will air a special episode Tuesday at 9, leading into the season premiere of Beyond the Tank at 10. So Tuesday at 9, you'll be getting the choice of watching one of two crossovers or an out-of-time slot reality show, as well as a new FOX Tuesday line up...

It's almost easier to list which fall shows ARE on this week than those that aren't, so here you go:

-ABC will still be airing their Wednesday comedy block (The Middle/The Goldbergs/Modern Family/Blackish) as well as their original Friday line up (Last Man Standing/Dr Ken/Shark Tank/20/20).
-CBS is still airing its Monday, Tuesday, and Friday fall line ups, with Thursday largely untouched except Angel from Hell is taking 2 Broke Girls' place.
-CW is going mostly reruns this week; Monday's dramadies are being replaced by reality reruns, and Reign will air a new episode Friday at 8
-FOX is still airing The Simpsons, Family Guy, and a two-hour MasterChef Junior, as well as Grandfathered, Brooklyn 9-9, and The Grinder, but the latter three have new time slots. Yes: The Simpsons and Family Guy are the ONLY shows left untouched this week by FOX.
-NBC is still airing their Chicago trio, Law & Order: SVU, The Mysteries of Laura, Heroes: Reborn, The Blacklist, and Undateable
