ABC was all new on Wednesday night with Christmas episodes of its comedies and the fall finale of Nashville. At 8pm, The Middle was up seven tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo. Back in the Game followed with its last scheduled episode. It was up a million viewers and a tenth in the demo. And so it ends for Game, which was the odd comedy out of the newbies on ABC. It has three remaining episodes but they aren't scheduled to air anytime soon. At 9pm, Modern Family rebounded nicely as it was up 1.1 million viewers and three tenths in the demo for its best numbers in nearly a month. At 9:30pm, Super Fun Night was up six tenths in viewers and two tenths in the demo. At 10pm, Nashville was down half a million viewers and two tenths in the demo, tying a series low. It's been doing OK in recent weeks by holding on to its numbers but to dip like this for the fall finale is a disappointment. 

CBS had disappointing numbers. Survivor was down seven tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo ahead of Sunday's finale. The dramas that followed did not do any better than their Thanksgiving Eve airings two weeks ago as Criminal Minds was up a tenth in viewers and even in the demo while CSI was actually down seven tenths in viewers and two tenths in the demo. A repeat of CSI was only three tenths below that with a 1.5 demo last week so I'm not sure what happened to these two crime dramas this week. On NBC, The Sing-Off was well below Monday's numbers after The Voice. However, it was a decent performer like NBC wants it to be for the holiday season. A Kelly Clarkson special didn't do much at 10pm but it did manage to tie Nashville. FOX had another bad week with The X Factor as it was down four tenths in viewers and even in the demo with a low 1.4.
