It was a pretty good night all around for the broadcast networks on Wednesday night. Because of Election Day,  NBC brought The Voice over to Wednesday. While it wasn't as strong as usual Monday and Tuesday ratings, it still did very well and easily outperformed The X Factor. This show is a beast wherever its slotted. NBC wisely used the lead-in to promote Chicago Fire which rose 1.4 million viewers and six tenths in the demo for a series high. We'll see next week if the extra exposure will last but it did enough to earn a full season renewal today from NBC.

ABC's entire lineup was up from their last airing. At 8pm, The Middle was up two tenths in viewers and the demo from its last airing two weeks ago for its best showing since the season premiere. At 8:30pm, The Neighbors was up 1.1 million viewers and two tenths in the demo from last week's Halloween airing, delivering its best demo since the series premiere. At 9pm, Modern Family was up a big 1.8 million viewers and six tenths in the demo from last week's big drop. With The Big Bang Theory airing against The Voice on Thursday, it might be able to be the top demo of the week. At 9:30pm, Suburgatory was up 1.3 million viewers and half a demo point for a season high in the demo. Even Nashville was able to stop the bleeding as it was up four tenths in viewers and two tenths in the demo. ABC has to be happy with last night's numbers across the board and this was coming against a special airing of The Voice. 

Over on CBS, Survivor was up five tenths in viewers and three tenths in the demo from  last week's Halloween-impacted performance. At 9pm, Criminal Minds was up a tenth in viewers and the demo as it seems to be steady no matter what else is going on. At 10pm, CSI was one of only two shows to drop week-to-week as it was down six tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo. FOX's The X Factor was the other show to drop as it was down six tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo. Airing against The Voice, its clear that this show is not in the same league ratings-wise. It helps FOX with the bottom line but these numbers are disappointing.
