But what about the other shows on the network?

We've rounded up the performance of the peacock network's scripted shows in the ratings, and whether they are likely to be renewed for additional seasons. 

1. This Is Us - Certain Renewal

This hit drama is down double digits year-to-year, but it remains NBC's highest-rated show. It is currently averaging 8.9 million viewers and a 2.2 rating.

2. Manifest - Could Go Either Way

Manifest is averaging 6.9 million total viewers and a 1.4 rating in the demo. However, the show is on a slippery slope, with the most recent outing logging a 0.9 in the demo and 5.5 million viewers.

It has now lost over half of its ratings since September.

It commands solid gains delayed viewing, but it needs to stop bleeding to secure its future.

3. New Amsterdam - Likely Renewal

This new medical drama is a reliable performer and has stabilized. Currently averaging 6.6 million viewers and a 1.3 rating, it ranks as NBC's third highest-rated scripted offering.

4. Chicago Fire - Certain Renewal

Chicago Fire is up almost 20 percent in the demo vs. last season. Averaging a robust 8 million total viewers, and a 1.3 rating, it will be back.

5. Chicago Med - Certain Renewal

Chicago Med is averaging the same 1.2 rating it did last season. In today's TV landscape, steady is the new up.

6. Brooklyn Nine-Nine - Certain Renewal

Brooklyn Nine-Nine launched on NBC with multi-year highs. With 3.5 million total viewers and a 1.2 rating, it currently ranks as NBC's highest-rated comedy series. NBC owns the show, so it has a lot of room to fall before taking a trip back to the bubble.

7. Chicago PD - Certain Renewal

Like Chicago Med, Chicago PD is right in line with the 1.1 rating it averaged last season.

8. Law & Order: SVU - Likely Renewal

This aging series took a hit by moving to Thursdays. It is currently down over 20 percent to 4.4 million total viewers and a 0.9 in the demo. NBC, however, has bigger fish to fry, so it's safe.

9. Superstore - Certain Renewal

Superstore is down slightly to 3.2 million total viewers and a 0.9 rating. It's not as strong in delayed viewing as the other comedies with similar live ratings, but it is showing stability at a respectable level, so it will be back.

10. Will & Grace - Renewed

NBC gifted Will & Grace with an order for next season well ahead of the current season airing. The show's future beyond that next season, however, is murky.

Season 10 is currently down almost 50 percent year-to-year, and is averaging 3.2 million total viewers and a 0.8 rating.

11. The Blacklist - Could Go Either Way

The Blacklist Season 6 is averaging 3.9 million total viewers and a 0.7 rating. These ratings are soft for Fridays, but the show still secures some solid gains on the DVR front. If it stabilizes or rises in the coming weeks, it could be renewed. But it's on the bubble for now.

12. The Good Place - Renewed

This acclaimed comedy series is down over 20 percent to 2.8 million total viewers and a 0.9 rating.

13. I Feel Bad - Certain Cancellation

As the lowest-rated comedy on the network, I Feel Bad is a dead show airing. NBC has not ordered any more episodes. With 2.5 million total viewers and a 0.6 demo rating.

14. Blindspot - Likely Cancellation

Blindspot landed a surprise renewal for a fourth season, but with more erosion in the ratings, it probably won't get the same treatment.

Season 4 is averaging 2.7 million viewers and a 0.5 rating. It did post a season-high 0.6 rating for its first episode of 2019, but it's hard to imagine NBC not revamping Fridays next season.

15. Midnight, Texas - Canceled

As NBC's lowest-rated scripted offering, Midnight, Texas was canceled. Season 2 averaged 2.1 million viewers and a 0.4 rating.
