Wednesday night had week two of American Idol slip a heavy 1.9 million viewers and seven tenths in the demo. We'll see how it levels off but early indicators are that Idol is not going to be able to stop the bleeding. CBS had a really bad night as both their veteran dramas saw series lows. Criminal Minds was even in viewers but down two tenths in the demo while CSI was down eight tenths in viewers and a rough four tenths in the demo. I'm not sure what exactly happened here but I think these shows will rally, they're pretty resilient. NBC was up across the board as Revolution rose half a million viewers and two tenths in the demo from last week's series low. I'm still surprised at how much this show has held-up this season. It's not doing great, but it didn't have a Smash-like meltdown. At 9pm, Law & Order: SVU swung back up again as it was up 1.3 million viewers and four tenths in the demo. SVU rises and Criminal Minds falls, time for either CBS or NBC to move one of these shows which seem to appeal to the exact same audience. At 10pm, week three of Chicago PD was up seven tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo though retention was much weaker this week.

ABC's lineup was up across the board perhaps in part due to a weaker Idol. The biggest gainer was The Middle, which was up half a million viewers and a big half a demo point for its best number since November 20. Last week, I said The Middle may have been the victim of the curiosity tune-in to the new season of American Idol. That wasn't a factor this week and The Middle was able to recover. At 8:30pm, Suburgatory was up six tenths in viewers and two tenths in the demo from last week's season premiere. The rise for the second week doesn't happen often but it does when the lead-in is so much better. At 9pm, Modern Family was up half a million viewers and two tenths in the demo while even Super Fun Night rallied a little bit as it was up four tenths in viewers and two tenths in the demo. At 10pm, Nashville was the least affected as it was down a tenth in viewers and up a tenth in the demo. Even with CSI and Chicago PD being less than impressive, Nashville still finished in third place.
