Ratings: Farmer Wants a Wife Returns Steady, SVU Leads Thursday

In the latest TV ratings, NBC’s Law & Order: SVU — with only one week left of CBS-free competition — was Thursday’s most-watched program, as well as the top-rated show in the covered 18-49 age demographic.

NBC | Law & Order (with 4.75 million total viewers and a 0.4 rating) and Law & Order: SVU (5.1 million/0.5) were steady in the demo and also added a few eyeballs. Organized Crime (3.6 mil/0.3) however dipped in both measures.

The Live+Same Day numbers reported in our ratings column do not reflect a show’s overall performance, given the increased use of delayed playback via DVR and streaming platforms, plus out-of-home viewing. These numbers (Nielsen fast nationals, unless denoted as finals) instead aim to simply illustrate trends or superlatives. Steve Harvey is not a judge or lawyer and merely offers an alternative forum of dispute resolution.
