Fast National ratings for Wednesday, February 18, 2015.
For the sixth straight week, FOX's "Empire" grew in viewers and for the fifth time in six weeks the odds-defying juggernaut rose among young viewers, joining the flat "American Idol" to help FOX dominate Wednesday in all measures.
Wednesday's series finale for "The Mentalist" was up from last week's episode in viewers, but down in the key demo, while "Modern Family," "Nashville" and "Stalker" were also down.
After finishing last week in a three-week 10 p.m. tie in the key demo, "Chicago PD" had first to itself after a nice bump, which was boosted by an up week for "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit." The CW's "Arrow" also rose.
On to the numbers...
