Wednesday night had the preview of a new Tuesday bound comedy on ABC. First up though, The Goldbergs was up seven tenths in viewers and two tenths in the demo for a nice rebound from its last airing. That led to the premiere of Imaginary Mary at 8:30pm. It was up a tenth from the last Speechless airing but worse retention out of The Goldbergs. This wasn't a terrible showing but it also wasn't a huge sampling so I feel pretty down on its chances airing in the more difficult Tuesday 9:30pm slot. At 9pm, Modern Family was up seven tenths in viewers and two tenths in the demo for its best performance since February 8. It seemed like it might not get back to the 2s this season but here it is. At 9:30pm, Black-ish was even with its last airing despite all the earlier half hours being up. At 10pm, Designated Survivor was even with last week, which followed all comedy repeats. On CBS, Survivor was up two tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo for a high for this edition. At 9pm, Criminal Minds was down six tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo but Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders was up two tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo.

FOX did not have a horrible week two from Shots Fired. After last week's low debut, it dipped nine tenths in viewers but just a tenth in the demo. This was not a bad second week drop at all but it also started quite low so that's part of the problem. At this point, it's still got a fighting chance. At 9pm, Empire was down 1.1 million viewers and four tenths in the demo for a new series low. Yes, it still has a 2.4 demo but it was down 50% from its year-ago airing. This is decelerating at a fast rate still which is troubling. On NBC, Blindspot was even with last week but Law & Order: SVU was down two tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo to tie a series low set in May 2016. At 10pm, Chicago PD was down three tenths in viewers but even in the demo. Finally on the CW, Arrow was up two tenths in viewers and even in the demo while The 100 was up a tenth in viewers and even in the demo.

WINNER OF THE NIGHT: Modern Family (ABC)
LOSER OF THE NIGHT: Law & Order: SVU (NBC)
