On Wednesday night, NBC had a series premiere with Strong but it was ignored with a mere 3.3 million viewers and 1.0 demo. This doesn't bode well for its Thursday 8pm chances. Earlier in the night, The Voice aired a special Wednesday episode. Though it aired at a special time, it was still a new series low for a non-clip show episode. On CBS, Survivor was down six tenths in viewers and even in the demo. At 9pm, Criminal Minds was down four tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo as it's once again losing steam now that it's facing Empire again. Who would have guessed such a strong crossover audience between those two shows? Still, the return of Criminal Minds helped the spinoff, Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders, rise to its best numbers since week two. It was up nine tenths in viewers and three tenths in the demo from last week's 10pm episode. This was the kind of performance it needed and probably helps cement an already likely renewal.

On ABC, The Middle was dead even with last week while The Goldbergs was in the only show in the block to go up, rising a tenth in viewers and the demo. At 9pm, Modern Family saw a new series low in the demo. It fell a tenth in viewers and the demo. The Goldbergs was not that far off from a show that it used to come nowhere near. At 9:30pm, Black-ish also saw a new series low, rising two tenths in viewers but falling a tenth in the demo. At 10pm, Nashville was up a tenth in viewers and even in the demo. Finally on FOX, Rosewood was down seven tenths in viewers and two tenths in the demo. At 9pm, Empire was down 1.2 million viewers and half a demo point from last week's American Idol infused episode. The only episodes of Empire that did worse or the same were the series premiere and the Thanksgiving Eve episode.
