Wednesday night had Game 1 of the World Series on FOX, which was up six tenths in the demo from last year's Game 1. It also had the 300th episode of CSI on CBS. But first on the eye network, Survivor was down six tenths in viewers and two tenths in the demo for a season low. At 9pm, Criminal Minds was up half a million viewers and even in the demo. It has been between a 2.6 and 2.8 demo all season so far. At 10pm, CSI's 300th episode saw a little bump as it was up a million bumps and a tenth in the demo. I'd be surprised to see this show reach 400 but stranger things have happened and it's still doing fairly well among CBS dramas.

Over on ABC, the 100th episode of The Middle was dead even with its last airing two weeks ago. At 8:30pm, Back in the Game was down a tenth in viewers and two tenths in the demo to a series low. This show isn't holding on to its lead-in like many thought it would. Will ABC try The Goldbergs or Trophy Wife here at some point? At 9pm, Modern Family was down six tenths in viewers and two tenths in the demo. At 9:30pm, Super Fun Night was down two tenths in viewers and even in the demo. Though retention was slightly better, it's still not doing very well as a lead-out of Family, but then again nothing seems to do that well with Family and is still the top demo draw among ABC's new comedies. At 10pm, Nashville was down three tenths in viewers and even in the demo for a third week in a row.

Finally, NBC had a terrible night. At 8pm, Revolution was down four tenths in viewers and even in the demo. For the first time all season, it didn't drop but it held steady at a 1.4, which is awfully low. Honestly the win for Revolution this season is that it didn't fall flat on its face without The Voice like Smash last year, but a season three seems unlikely. At 9pm, Law & Order: SVU was down a rough two million viewers and four tenths in the demo. I'm not sure what happened here, maybe there is more crossover between baseball fans and SVU than other shows? At 10pm, the final airing of the cancelled Ironside was down nine tenths in viewers and two tenths in the demo, further earning its cancellation. Although not announced, I wouldn't be shocked to see the remaining episodes surface on Saturday at some point.
