Wednesday night on ABC, the demos were up across the board from the last new airings on Thanksgiving Eve, but not to the highs from earlier in the season as December continues to make things difficult for regular shows. At 8pm, The Middle was down four tenths in viewers but up three tenths in the demo. Suburgatory followed and was showed the same change as The Middle. These two series fit together perfectly. At 9pm, Modern Family was the standout as usual as it was down half a million viewers but up half a demo point. This lineup is doing well but shouldn't other shows besides Family be doing better in the demo? This is particularly true of Happy Endings which was down seven tenths in viewers and up two tenths in the demo.

Over on CBS, Survivor started off the night up half a million viewers and two tenths in the demo as the finale nears. At 9pm, Criminal Minds was down three tenths in viewers and the demo from its last new airing three weeks ago while CSI also returned and was up half a million viewers but down a tenth in the demo. Over on FOX, The X-Factor was down four tenths in viewers and three tenths in the demo. Shouldn't this be doing better with the finale nearing? At 9:30pm, week two of I Hate My Teenage Daughter was down a rough 1.4 million viewers and seven tenths in the demo. This show is going nowhere fast.

NBC started off with the last Wednesday airing of Up All Night which was up seven tenths in viewers and four tenths in the demo from its Thanksgiving Eve episode. This show should perk up some on Thursdays where it fits better. The dramas came back to Earth after limited competition last week as Harry's Law was down a big 2.8 million viewers and a tenth in the demo while Law & Order: SVU was down an even worse 2.9 million viewers and three tenths in the demo. NBC can only compete when the competition isn't there.
