Wednesday TV Ratings 9/26/18: Single Parents and A Million Little Things Do OK In Premieres (UPDATED)

It was another rough premiere night for ABC, as most of their shows underperformed on a night dominated, for a change, by CBS and Fox. ABC kicked off their night with The Goldbergs and American Housewife both down four tenths from last year, which is surely a disappointment. Modern Family was down virtually the same amount, but it was still the network's highest show. Single Parents started with a 1.3 behind it, which is actually decent retention for the new comedy. At 10, A Million Little Things was the biggest disappointment for the Alphabet Net, but it was actually the only timeslot steady with last year's timeslot occupant. Then again, it shouldn't be proud to be tying Designated Survivor considering where that one ended up. CBS had the premiere of Survivor, which was down just a tenth from last year's premiere. Big Brother ended with an uptick that tied its season high. Fox was #1 in scripted programming for the night, with Empire being the #1 show of the night and Star performing solidly with a 1.4 behind it. NBC's #OneChicago night didn't start too well, with 1.2s for Med and PD and a 1.3 for Fire. All three were relatively steady with last season, but NBC's night was a far cry from their huge Monday and Tuesday wins.

Finals Update: Chicago Fire (+0.1), Survivor (+0.1) and Big Brother (+0.1) adjusted up. Star (-0.1) adjusted down.
