NBC meanwhile countered with its America’s Got Talent (0.6, 5.09M) results show, which held steady with last week but matched its season low in the demo as it slipped a tenth from Tuesday night’s episode. NBC ended the night with repeats of Ellen Game of Games and Chicago PD.

ABC gave audiences reruns of The Goldbergs and Black-ish along with the special Notre Dame: Our Lady of Paris (0.2, 1.36M). Fox continued to serve up reheated episodes of MasterChef.

The CW’s The 100 (0.2, 683,000) held steady in the demo while adding to its viewership, delivering its biggest audience in 11 episodes. Coroner (0.1, 754K) followed and was even.
