Check below this post for my review of NCIS: New Orleans and check back later tonight for my review of Black-ish!
Premiere week rolls on with a busy Wednesday but, again, only one series premiere: ABC's comedy Black-ish. It follows a lineup with the season premieres of The Middle, the new Wednesday addition The Goldbergs, and Modern Family. I think the comedy lineup will see a good debut and Black-ish will hold a lot of Family's audience. Nashville at 10pm may be another story. CBS is pairing its Survivor premiere with a 90 minute Big Brother finale and could see the best average demo as their likely to be strong the entire night. I'm not quite sure how NBC will do and the big show to watch will be The Mysteries of Laura in its regular 8pm timeslot after a strong sampling at 10pm last week. It is followed by the season premieres of crime dramas Law & Order: SVU and Chicago PD. I see modest numbers: not awesome but not terrible. FOX could have a rough night with Hell's Kitchen and week two of Red Band Society, though I would love to see Red Band have a strong second week showing.
