Wednesday night had the series premiere of NBC's new Chicago PD. But first for the Peacock, Revolution returned up half a million viewers and a tenth in the demo from its last airing way back on November 20. The viewer total was the highest since the season premiere so this was a surprisingly good return after so much time off. At 9pm, Law & Order: SVU was up a huge 2.8 million viewers and half a demo point from its last airing, also on November 20. This is its best showing since the season premiere partly because it was a big episode and partly because it does so much better when it doesn't have to face Criminal Minds. At 10pm, Chicago PD premiered to good numbers, way above the 6.8 million/1.3 demo that Ironside premiered to in the same slot in October. It also premiered above the numbers Chicago Fire premiered to in October 2012. All in all, this was a solid start for PD but it must face a new CSI in the weeks to come.

CBS aired the People's Choice Awards. It was up in total viewers but down three tenths in the demo from last year's telecast. All in all, not a bad showing. Over on ABC, The Middle started off the night up seven tenths in viewers and two tenths in the demo. At 8:30pm, a special airing of Super Fun Night did numbers right where Back in the Game ended. I don't know why ABC is wasting its time with this show because Suburgatory could have come this week or The Goldbergs could have had a deserved Wednesday airing. At 9pm, Modern Family was down 1.1 million viewers but even in the demo as it skewed younger this week. A second airing of Super Fun Night was up from the 8:30pm airing but down seven tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo from its last airing in this slot.
