On Wednesday night, CBS had a solid night with less competition. Survivor was up half a million viewers and two tenths in the demo. The viewer total was a season high. At 9pm, Criminal Minds took major advantage of no competition from Empire or Law & Order: SVU. It was up half a million viewers and three tenths in the demo for its best performance since the season premiere. This is the most life this show has shown in quite awhile. If the bigger competition for this show is Empire then January and February could go well for the veteran drama. After a very impressive performance last week, Code Black didn't build on the momentum from last week or its improved lead-in as it fell a tenth in viewers and the demo. While this is still one of the show's best performances, it is somewhat disappointing after its rise last week.

On ABC, a night of holiday episodes for the comedies meant mostly more of the same. The Middle and The Goldbergs were both up half a million viewers and even in the demo. Modern Family was up eight tenths in viewers and two tenths in the demo while Black-ish was up half a million viewers and a tenth in the demo. It was another disastrous week for Nashville, which fell a tenth in viewers and the demo to another series low. Why is ABC still airing this show? NBC and FOX both aired specials. NBC didn't get much traction with its night of magic shows while FOX had an OK performance from the cheesy holiday special hosted by the stars of Empire.

WINNER OF THE NIGHT: Criminal Minds (CBS)
LOSER OF THE NIGHT: Nashville (ABC)
