8:00 45th Annual CMA Awards (SPECIAL)
As always, ABC is preempting the second Wednesday of November for the CMA Awards. Typically this is a ratings success for them but it's too bad they have to preempt their Wednesday night lineup which is getting stronger and stronger. Still, expect good numbers, particularly in the total viewer count.
9:00 Criminal Minds #145 "There's No Place Like Home"
10:00 CSI #258 "Brain Doe"
CBS is all new with its regular lineup. It's hard to know how much it will be affected by the CMA Awards. Last year, CBS's lineup hit season lows across the board and it wouldn't be shocking to see that happen again.
Prediction: Survivor - 10.6 million, 3.0/Minds - 12.4 million, 3.5/CSI - 10.5 million, 2.5
8:00 Up All Night #8 "First Night Away"
8:30 Up All Night #6 "Birth" (REPEAT)
9:00 Harry's Law #19 "American Girl"
10:00 Law & Order: SVU #279 "Russian Brides"
NBC is all new except for the 8:30 slot which is an Up All Night repeat. Last year, NBC hit season lows against the CMA Awards so don't be surprised to see similar things happen here. Harry's Law has guest star George Wendt.
Prediction: Night 8:00 - 4.5 million, 1.7/Harry's - 6.9 million, 1.1/SVU - 6.9 million, 2.0
8:00 The X-Factor
The X-Factor is all new as usual and it seems to be very steady regardless of the competition so I wouldn't expect big changes this week.
Prediction: X Factor - 11.4 million, 3.9
