Wednesday night marked new episodes everywhere as we head into May Sweeps. ABC started things off with The Goldbergs, which was down four tenths in viewers and two tenths in the demo for its worst performance since May 2014, back in its first season when it aired on Tuesdays. It is one of the few veteran shows that has not hit or tied a series low in the demo this year but it's getting close to that mark (a 1.3). At 8:30pm, Speechless was down three tenths in viewers and two tenths in the demo for a series low. Modern Family had the week off so ABC went with two episodes of Black-ish. If ABC was trying to see if Black-ish could be an anchor, the results weren't great as the 9pm episode tied a series low. The regular 9:30pm episode actually built on the 9pm episode. At 10pm, Designated Survivor was even in viewers and up a tenth in the demo, getting back to the 1.1 demo it was getting for several weeks after its hiatus. On FOX, Shots Fired was up a tenth in viewers and even in the demo while Empire was down three tenths in viewers and two tenths in the demo for a new series low. Even Empire is heading to the 1s in the demo and could hit it before the end of the season.

It seems like the NBC Wednesday lineup is always in repeats, but it was new for the beginning of the stretch run. At 8pm, Blindspot continued to stay in the renewal conversation as it was even with its last airing three weeks ago. The other dramas took a small step back. Law & Order: SVU was up a tenth in viewers but down a tenth in the demo while Chicago PD was down two tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo. On CBS, Survivor was up six tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo. Its 1.7 premiere for this edition seemed low, but it has gotten a 1.7 or 1.8 demo every week since. At 9pm, Criminal Minds was down a tenth in viewers and even in the demo while Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders ended the night also down a tenth in viewers and even in the demo. Finally on the CW, Arrow was down two tenths in viewers and even in the demo while The 100 was down two tenths in viewers and even in the demo.

WINNER OF THE NIGHT: Survivor (CBS)
LOSER OF THE NIGHT: Black-ish (ABC)
