The final new show to premiere during the "fall season" came on Wednesday night with I Hate My Teenage Daughter but it was a ho-hum debut. Daughter did alright but it had a big lead-in and it's not likely going to stay at these levels especially given the poor reception. These half hour comedies after reality competitions just don't work, maybe if there were two in a row, but one alone is like an island. Not that this show would be a hit anywhere. Earlier in the night, The X-Factor was down two tenths in viewers and two tenths in the demo from its performance show two weeks ago.

Over on NBC, the annual Christmas in Rockefeller Center special was below last year's numbers but still a player in total viewers. At 9pm, Harry's Law benefited from less competition and the improved lead-in as it was up a strong 2.7 million viewers and two tenths in the demo for a season high in the viewers. NBC shouldn't move this show to Sundays, at least it can be competitive in total viewers which many of NBC's shows can't do. At 10pm, Law & Order: SVU was also up big - a nice 2.6 million viewers and three tenths in the demo for its best numbers since the season premiere. This show would probably do much better regularly if it wasn't competing with the similarly-themed CSI. Elsewhere, CBS was new at the start of the night with Survivor which was down six tenths in viewers and two tenths in the demo from its last regular episode. The Grammy Nominations Concert at the end of the night was not much of a player. ABC was all in repeats and saw decent numbers for encores.
