Halloween night and the aftermath of Sandy meant some scary drops for some shows but I wouldn't put a ton of stock into an odd evening during an odd week for TV. ABC started things off with the classic special It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown which was up nicely from last year's airing. The Neighbors actually had a better demo lead-in this week but dropped 1.2 million viewers and a tenth in the demo. At 9pm, Modern Family had a huge fall from last week's Halloween episode as it was down 1.9 million viewers and seven tenths in the demo. Suburgatory was down 1.1 million viewers and three tenths in the demo. It doesn't seem to me like it'd be doing much worse in the 8:30pm slot it had last year. At 10pm, Nashville fell another eight tenths in viewers and two tenths in the demo. I don't think ABC expected it to be under a 2 demo by week four as it is a much weaker performer than Revenge was in this slot.

NBC started the night with a special airing of 30 Rock which was below last week's episode of the cancelled Animal Practice. At 8:30pm, Guys with Kids was down two tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo for a series low after several weeks with a 1.4 demo. At 9pm, Law & Order: SVU was down seven tenths in viewers and two tenths in the demo from last week's 300th episode. At 10pm, Chicago Fire was down eight tenths in viewers and two tenths in the demo but it's actually not that far off from overtaking Nashville for second in the demo during the hour. 

On CBS, Survivor was down four tenths in viewers and three tenths in the demo. This might be a more family friendly option so I wouldn't be surprised to see it bounce back next week. Criminal Minds was up four tenths in viewers but down two tenths in the demo. CSI had the best week-to-week performance on any network as it was up nine tenths in viewers and even in the demo. Finally, FOX's The X Factor was one of the hardest hit as it was down significantly from its usual Wednesday numbers. Let's see see how next Wednesday goes before making judgments on most of these numbers.
