It was a weird night for broadcast TV as many regular shows were preempted. ABC aired the CMA Awards and it easily won the night but was down significantly from last year's broadcast. CBS had a good night from top to bottom. The Big Bang Theory was up a tenth in viewers and two tenths in the demo for a season high. With Modern Family's drop, it will easily be the top demo series of the week. At 8:30pm, Two and a Half Men was down two tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo despite the lead-in being up. It showed the worst retention so far this season. At 9pm, Person of Interest was down three tenths in viewers and even in the demo. Elementary closed out the night up two tenths in viewers and the demo for its best performance since the second episode. The worst news came on FOX where The X Factor was down a big 2.2 million viewers and six tenths in the demo from its last Thursday airing. It might have had crossover viewers with the CMAs and an encore of The Voice on NBC (airing for people who missed during the hurricane) but it's still a bad drop for the first week of live shows.
