After a week off due to the CMA Awards, nearly all of ABC's Wednesday night shows were down but still solid. The only exception was The Middle which was just down two tenths in viewers and even in the demo. At 8:30pm, Suburgatory slid three tenths in viewers and two tenths in the demo for a series low. This is the first time it hasn't built from The Middle in the demo. This is still a very strong companion to The Middle but it's moving in the wrong direction right now. At 9pm, Modern Family was down half a million viewers and a tenth in the demo, hitting a season low in the demo (you know you're a hit when a 5.6 is a season low). At 9:30pm, Happy Endings was down seven tenths in viewers and two tenths in the demo. At 10pm, Revenge slipped more than most as it was down six tenths in viewers and four tenths in the demo. This show would be the only hit hardest by weeks off given its serialized nature. How will it fare next week on Thanksgiving Eve?

CBS on the other hand was up across the board without the CMA Awards to compete with. At 8pm, the just-renewed Survivor was up nine tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo. At 9pm, Criminal Minds was up a nice 1.3 million viewers and three tenths in the demo. This show is quietly one of the top demo performers for dramas. At 10pm, CSI was up four tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo. Over on FOX, The X-Factor was up a million viewers and a tenth in the demo from last week.

Finally on NBC, Up All Night started things off up a tenth in viewers and the demo. This show should be able to survive here until it moves to 9:30pm Thursday in January, which will certainly help its demo rating. At 9pm, Harry's Law was up a tenth in viewers but down two tenths in the demo. This show is getting a 1.1 demo which is just way way too low but does NBC think Rock Center will do better when it will likely do the same in the demo with much less viewers. At 10pm, Law & Order: SVU was up six tenths in viewers but even in the demo, tying its series low from last week.
