Wednesday TV Ratings 1/13/21: Call Your Mother Premieres Modestly, Steady Chicago Med and Chicago Fire Return on Top (UPDATED)

Preliminary Analysis: After over a month off the air, ABC brought back its Wednesday sitcom lineup in mediocre fashion. Anchors 'The Goldbergs' (0.7) and 'The Conners' (0.6) matched their previous episodes while 'American Housewife' (0.5) lost a tenth in the middle, all three tying their series lows. New comedy 'Call Your Mother' (0.5) had a middling start in the 9:30 slot, only losing a tenth from 'Conners' but beginning in very shaky territory for a series premiere. A repeat of 'The Chase' (0.3) capped off the alphabet network's tepid evening. CBS had a solid 'Price is Right' special (0.7), a steady 'SEAL Team' (0.5), and a fading 'SWAT' (0.4). NBC remained resilient as 'Chicago Med' (1.0) and 'Chicago Fire' (1.0) held even in their returns and topped the night. 'Chicago PD' (0.9) inched up from its last installment in the 10pm hour. 'The Masked Dancer' (0.7) and 'Name That Tune' (0.7) matched last week's debuts on Fox, looking a lot better in week 2 than they did in week 1. The CW had repeats of 'Riverdale' (0.1) and 'Nancy Drew' (0.0).

Finals Update: 'American Housewife' (0.6, +0.1) and 'Chicago PD' (1.0, +0.1) adjusted up.
