On Wednesday night, NBC came crashing back after last week's big crossover stunt. At 8pm, The Mysteries of Laura was down four tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo, tying a series low. Not a good time for a bubble show to tie a series low. At 9pm, Law & Order: SVU was down a mammoth 3.2 million viewers and nine tenths in the demo, hitting a series low. Yikes. At 10pm, Chicago PD was down 1.6 million viewers and seven tenths in the demo. It did win the hour, at a 1.4 demo. On CBS, Survivor was down a tenth in viewers and the demo. This is a low in the demo for the spring edition, which has been very solid. At 9pm, the season finale of Criminal Minds was up nine tenths in viewers but even in the demo with last week's series low. It's been a weak end of the season for this show. At 10pm, CSI: Cyber was up a tenth in viewers and even in the demo. I'm surprised this show is getting as much potential renewal buzz as it is. I don't see it having much upside.

Over on ABC, The Middle started things off down four tenths in viewers and a rough three tenth in the demo. This show has been swinging up and down lately. At 8:30pm, The Goldbergs was even in viewers and up a tenth in the demo. The gap between these shows is widening and it's seeming more and more likely that The Middle will be sent to another night. At 9pm, Modern Family was up six tenths in viewers and even in the demo. Black-ish had the best night of the comedies as it was up a million viewers and two tenths in the demo despite the rest of the comedies being even or down. At 10pm, Nashville was up three tenths in viewers and even in the demo. Finally on FOX, American Idol is just languishing even a week before the finale. It was down half a million viewers and two tenths in the demo, tying a series low.

WINNER OF THE NIGHT: Black-ish (ABC)
LOSER OF THE NIGHT: Law & Order: SVU (NBC)
