Wednesday night saw more declines like Monday and Tuesday. The 10pm hour was particularly weak as all three broadcast dramas were below a 2 demo while the American Horror Story premiere delivered a 3.0 demo for FX in the same hour. On CBS, Survivor started off the night down six tenths in viewers and two tenths in the demo. At 9pm, Criminal Minds was down a tenth in viewers and the demo as it held up better than most shows week to week. At 10pm, CSI was down nine tenths in viewers and two tenths in the demo. This show is showing its age this year and I wouldn't be shocked if this is its final year on Wednesdays if things continue.

On ABC, The Middle started off the night up three tenths in viewers and down a tenth in the demo. At 8:30pm, Back in the Game was down two tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo. So far, this is not nearly as compatible with The Middle as I thought it would be. At 9pm, the 100th episode of Modern Family was down half a million viewers and three tenths in the demo. At 9:30pm, week two of Super Fun Night fell 1.6 million viewers and seven tenths in the demo. It's a pretty steep drop but not too surprising. We'll see if it can start to level off next week. At 10pm, Nashville was down two tenths in viewers and three tenths in the demo. It didn't get this low until February last year so that's not a good sign.

NBC had a rough night. At 8pm, Revolution was even in viewers and down a tenth in the demo. It continues to slowly fall which is troubling. At 9pm, Law & Order: SVU was down six tenths in viewers and four tenths in the demo. It's dropped an alarming 1.1 demo points from its surprising premiere numbers two weeks ago. At 10pm, week two of Ironside was down 1.6 million viewers and two tenths in the demo to a very low 1.1. This could be next on the cancellation heap although it has competition from Welcome to the Family, Hostages, and Betrayal. Finally on FOX, The X Factor was down half a million viewers and two tenths in the demo.
