With its first telecast in three weeks, "Chicago P.D." jumped 29% versus its prior episode (to a 2.2 from a 1.7 on Feb. 5) and was up 34% or 2.0 million persons in total viewers (8.025 million vs. 6.004 million). Note that this week's "Chicago P.D." crossed over with "Law & Order: SVU."

· It's the fourth straight "Chicago P.D." to match or top its prior rating in 18-49. The only "Chicago P.D." that has gone down versus its prior telecast was the second episode on Jan. 15. The "Chicago P.D." track since its Jan. 8 debut is: 2.0, 1.5, 1.6, 1.7, 1.7, 2.2.

· Last night's "Chicago P.D." finished just a tenth of a point behind CBS's special "Criminal Minds" for the time-period win among ABC, CBS and NBC (2.2 vs. 2.3) and won the slot among those nets in adults 18-34 (1.7 vs. 1.4). Note that the prior "Chicago P.D." grew by 59% in L+7 versus these L+SD figures (to a 2.65 rating from a 1.67).

· In its first six weeks on the schedule, "Chicago P.D." has now generated NBC's six best 18-49 results in the time period, excluding "Saturday Night Live" specials, since Sept. 25, 2013.

· "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit" (2.0/6 in adults 18-49, 7.7 million viewers overall from 9-10:01 p.m. ET) matched its top rating since January 8. With its first telecast in three weeks, "SVU" was up 11% in 18-49 rating versus its prior episode (2.0 vs. 1.8 on Feb. 5) and up 23% or 1.5 million persons in total viewers (7.702 million vs. 6.241 million million). "SVU" was also up 25% versus the same night last year in adults 18-49 (to a 2.0 rating from a 1.6 on Feb. 27, 2013) and up 42% in total viewers (7.702 million vs. 5.438 million).

· With its first telecast in four weeks, "Revolution" (1.3/4 in adults 18-49 and 4.6 million viewers overall from 8-9 p.m. ET) matched its prior 18-49 rating, despite last night's competition from the season premiere of "Survivor." Note that the prior "Revolution" grew by 70% in L+7 versus these L+SD figures (to a 2.16 rating from a 1.27).

· L+7 Time Shifting: The prior telecasts of NBC's Wednesday dramas were significantly time-shifted: the Jan. 29 "Revolution" increased by 70% in 18-49 going from these next-day "live plus same day" ratings to "live plus seven day" (2.16 vs. 1.27), the Feb. 5 "SVU" grew by 57% (2.86 vs. 1.82) and the Feb. 5 "Chicago P.D." increased by 59% (2.65 vs. 1.67).
