ABC had an interesting night because they aired Fresh Off the Boat on a special night. This is a show that has underperformed in the new Tuesday block this season. But surprisingly, it did better as a Wednesday lead-off show. Of course it also didn't match what The Goldbergs does. I think this certainly helps this show and I expect a renewal but who knows where it will go on the schedule next season. At 8:30pm, Speechless was down half a million viewers and two tenths in the demo, but it did build on its lead-in. After a Modern Family repeat, Black-ish was down 1.1 million viewers and three tenths in the demo from when it followed a new episode last week. At 10pm, Match Game was down seven tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo.

On CBS, Undercover Boss was down three tenths in viewers and even in the demo. The People's Choice Awards aired from 9-11pm and was down a bit from last year and has become a mostly ignored awards show. On NBC, Blindspot was down three tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo for a series low. This show seemed to overperform a bit in the fall but it has been pretty weak the last couple weeks. Law & Order: SVU was up four tenths in viewers and even in the demo while Chicago PD was up half a million viewers and even in the demo. On FOX, Lethal Weapon was down two tenths in viewers and even in the demo but Star continued to drop. It was down three tenths in viewers and another two tenths in the demo. This has gone from building on its lead-in to even to two tenths down in just three weeks, that's not a great trend line but it's still on FOX, so it's not in dire shape yet. Finally on the CW, Frequency was even with last week.

WINNER OF THE NIGHT: Fresh Off the Boat (ABC)
LOSER OF THE NIGHT: Star (FOX)
