It was another iffy night for broadcast TV in the midst of November sweeps. NBC had the second season premiere of Whitney which got a timeslot upgrade when Animal Practice was cancelled. Though it posted better numbers than Animal, it did not do well as it tied its series low from last year's ho-hum ratings. Very few thought it would do very well but it should have been able to at least match the 1.6 its season finale got. The multi-cam lead-in didn't help Guys with Kids much as it was up three tenths in viewers but even in the demo from the last airing. At 9pm, Law & Order: SVU was down three tenths in viewers and even in the demo. Chicago Fire came back to earth in a big way after The Voice lead-in last week. It was down 1.2 million viewers and six tenths in the demo as it looks like The Voice viewers didn't like what they saw.

ABC was down across the board after rising across the board last week. At 8pm, The Middle was down two tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo as it had the smallest week to week drop. At 8:30pm, The Neighbors dropped a tenth in viewers and two tenths in the demo, tying a series low. Considering how the Tuesday comedies are doing though, this show is doing just fine. At 9pm, Modern Family was down half a million viewers and two tenths in the demo while Suburgatory was hit the hardest as it was down half a million viewers and a big half a demo point. At 10pm, Nashville was down two tenths in viewers and the demo, tying a series low on the heels of its full season renewal. 

On CBS, Survivor started off down two tenths in viewers and the demo. Criminal Minds was up a tenth in viewers and the demo. CSI was one of the few shows to rise as it was up seven tenths in viewers and two tenths in the demo. Against the new dramas on ABC and NBC, CSI has emerged as a clear and consistent ratings winner in this hour. FOX aired The X Factor and without competing against The Voice, it was up 1.2 million viewers and three tenths in the demo for its best Wednesday showing since October 10.
