Wednesday TV Ratings 2/17/21: The Masked Dancer Ends Steady, One Chicago Shows Dominate (UPDATED)

Preliminary Analysis: The eight-episode run of 'The Masked Dancer' came to a close on Fox with a clip show at 8 (0.5) and a stable finale at 9 (0.6). While 'Dancer' never came close to the heights of 'The Masked Singer', it has remained firmly in the 0.5-0.7 vicinity since its January 6th timeslot premiere. This spinoff series never really exploded in popularity but ratings never fell into awful territory either. Over on NBC, 'Chicago Med' (0.9), 'Chicago Fire' (0.9), and 'Chicago PD' (0.8) all lost a tenth on a week-to-week basis. ABC's 'For Life' clung to its 0.3 rating for dear life, looking marginally better than last week as it had to lead out of comedy repeats (0.5/0.4/0.4/0.3) this time around. The crime drama will air its season finale next week. 'SEAL Team' (0.5) and 'SWAT' (0.4) were even after two weeks off on CBS while 'Tough of Nails' (0.5) ticked down from its week-ago return (0.55). The CW's 'Riverdale' (0.2) gained a tenth while 'Nancy Drew' (0.1) matched its previous episode.

Finals Update: 'Chicago Fire' (1.0, +0.1), 'Chicago PD' (0.9, +0.1), 'The Masked Dancer' finale (0.7, +0.1), 'The Goldbergs' repeat (0.6, +0.1), and the 'Call Your Mother' repeat (0.4, +0.1) all adjusted up.
