On Wednesday, FOX started with Lethal Weapon, which was even in viewers and up a tenth in the demo. Star aired for the first time in a regular timeslot and not behind Empire. It was obviously down big from December's sneak peek after Empire, but it did build on the Lethal Weapon lead-in which showed there's an audience there. I would call this a solid, but not great start. On ABC, the entire comedy lineup was up from their last airings. The Goldbergs was up half a million viewers and two tenths in the demo while Speechless was up three tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo. At 9pm, Modern Family was up eight tenths in viewers and a nice four tenths in the demo while Black-ish was up three tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo. Match Game returned for a short winter run and it did pretty well with a 1.3 demo, actually up from most recent Designated Survivor episodes (though I'm sure Match Game won't be a huge DVR player like Designated).

The NBC lineup was finally back after nearly two months off. Blindspot was up a tenth in viewers and even in the demo. Law & Order: SVU aired for the first time since November 9 and it was up three tenths in viewers and two tenths in the demo. At 10pm, Chicago PD was up two tenths in viewers and three tenths in the demo from its last Wednesday airing, which was two hours. It was down from Tuesday's crossover episode. On CBS, Undercover Boss was up a tenth in viewers and two tenths in the demo from last week's holiday week airing. At 9pm, Criminal Minds was down half a million viewers and up a tenth in the demo while Code Black was even in viewers and up a tenth in the demo from its last airing, which followed Undercover Boss. Finally on the CW, Frequency was down two tenths in viewers for a series low. It was even in the demo at a pitiful 0.2.

WINNER OF THE NIGHT: Modern Family (ABC)
LOSER OF THE NIGHT: Frequency (CW)
