May 2020 is eight months removed from the September 2019 kickoff to the traditional broadcast TV season, but it feels like it’s been eight years.

  • Rank: 11 (tie)   
    Series: “NCIS”  
    Network: CBS  
    18-49 rating: 1.7  

    But you should see the size of this procedural’s (older) audience.  

    CBS

  • Rank: 11 (tie)  
    Series: “The Voice” (Mondays, performances)  
    Network: NBC  
    18-49 rating: 1.7  

    No longer TV’s highest-rated singing competition, but still TV’s highest-rated *serious* singing competition.

  • Rank: 11 (tie)  
    Series: “New Amsterdam”  
    Network: NBC  
    18-49 rating: 1.7  

    Fairly McDreamy ratings, but not as high as “Grey’s Anatomy.”

  • Rank: 11 (tie)
    Series: “Chicago Med”  
    Network: NBC  
    18-49 rating: 1.7  O

    “One Chicago” shows appear three times on this list.  

    NBC

  • Rank: 10  
    Series: “9-1-1: Lone Star”  
    Network: Fox  
    18-49 rating: 1.8  

    Rob Lowe drama is not “9-1-1,” but it’s certainly not “Almost Family,” either.  

    Fox

  • Rank: 7 (tie)  
    Series: “Lego Masters”  
    Network: Fox  
    18-49 rating: 1.9  

    It’s good to follow “The Masked Singer.” (Just don’t rub these ratings in with the folks over at “After the Mask.”)

  • Rank: 7 (tie)  
    Series: “Survivor”  
    Network: CBS  
    18-49 rating: 1.9  

    CBS’ highest-rated series among viewers 18-49 is not just surviving — but thriving — in its incredible 40th season.  

    CBS

  • Rank: 7 (tie)  
    Series: “Chicago Fire”  
    Network: NBC  
    18-49 rating: 1.9  

    On fire.

  • Rank: 6  
    Series: “Chicago P.D.”  
    Network: NBC  
    18-49 rating: 2.0  

    We’re seriously running out of pithy things to say about Dick Wolf’s Chicago-set dramas. Good ratings. There.

  • Rank: 5  
    Series: “9-1-1”  
    Network: Fox  
    18-49 rating: 2.2  

    “9-1-1” is a Top 5 series, Top 3 if you’re only counting scripted shows.  

    Fox

  • Rank: 4  
    Series: “Grey’s Anatomy”  
    Network: ABC  
    18-49 rating: 2.3  

    Still blue skies for “Grey’s” in Season 16.  

    ABC

  • Rank: 3  
    Series: “The Bachelor”  
    Network: ABC  
    18-49 rating: 2.4  

    Certainly not to be confused with “The Bachelor: Listen to Your Heart.” Oof.  

    ABC

  • Rank: 2  
    Series: “This Is Us”  
    Network: NBC  
    18-49 rating: 2.9  

    This is the highest-rated scripted series on television.

  • Rank: 1  
    Series: “The Masked Singer”  
    Network: Fox  
    18-49 rating: 3.1  

    Now the No. 1 show for two TV seasons in a row (by virtue of a tie with “This Is Us” last year), this impressive Nielsen average includes both Seasons 2 and 3 of the oddball reality competition.
