Wednesday TV Ratings 1/17/18: The Goldbergs & 9-1-1 Soar, Riverdale Returns Steady

It was a great night for most of the networks, with almost every show making some sort of gain from last week. Showing the most impressive gains was 9-1-1, which recently scored a renewal after just two episodes. The show went back up to its rating from the premiere after a three-tenth-decline. It's a great achievement for any show to hit its premiere rating, particularly considering the size of 9-1-1's lead-in, which is a whopping 7 tenths below it. The X-Files remained a disappointment in week three, but did manage to make a small uptick to 1.1. It's a shadow of its former self, but this is something. ABC also saw upticks, with The Goldbergs and Modern Family both gaining two tenths. They hit highest numbers since September and October, respectively. Meanwhile, Speechless and American Housewife were both up a tenth each to 1.3, a near-season high for Speechless and an average episode for Housewife. At 10,  Match Game closed off the night by not being up at all. CBS had a small uptick for Amazing Race, followed by a two-tenth one for SEAL Team and jack squat for Criminal Minds. SEAL Team still isn't really impressing, but this is certainly better than what it's been doing lately. Amazing Race, on the other hand, is still doing incredible. NBC had one-tenth upticks all night long. The Blacklist has seemingly found its groove (for now at least), so it'll be interesting to see how it can hold up and if it can stay an improvement over last year's Blindspot. The CW returned and still did its thing, with both shows up. Dynasty is undeniably a flop (even CW seemingly agrees there), but Riverdale continues to impress.
