On Wednesday night, Empire returned to FOX and it still has some juice in it. First up though, FOX premiered Shots Fired to pretty low numbers. At just 4.7 million viewers and a 1.1 demo, it was well below anything Lethal Weapon was doing in front of Empire in the fall. That being said, Shots Fired would have probably been ever more DOA if wasn't airing before Empire. Then Empire returned up four tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo from its fall finale. It was way down in a year to year comparison but the fact that it was up a bit from the fall finale shows that it is far from plummeting. It still can't be overstated that this remains one of TV's top shows. After a couple good weeks, Designated Survivor on ABC had to air behind repeats this week and dropped half a million viewers and two tenths in the demo to tie a series low.

NBC had its regular Wednesday lineup fully new for the first time in a month. Blindspot was up two tenths in viewers and even in the demo. Law & Order: SVU was down six tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo. Chicago PD was down three tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo from its last regular 10pm airing to tie a series low. On CBS, Survivor was up two tenths in viewers and even in the demo for its third straight 1.7 to start this edition. At 9pm, Criminal Minds was even while Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders was down six tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo to a new series low. Finally on the CW, both Arrow and The 100 were both down a tenth in viewers and even in the demo.

WINNER OF THE NIGHT: Empire (FOX)
LOSER OF THE NIGHT: Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders (CBS)
