The spring doldrums continued on Wednesday night with three veterans hitting new series lows. Most notably was Empire falling into the 1s for the first time. First up on FOX though, Shots Fired was down two tenths in viewers and even in the demo. Then at 9pm, Empire was down seven tenths in viewers and two tenths in the demo. And to think it started its season with a 4.2 demo (and last season, hit a 6.7!) With Empire falling into the 1s, only The Big Bang Theory and This is Us have never been below a 2.0 demo among broadcast shows. On ABC, The Goldbergs was even with last week while Speechless was down a tenth in viewers and even in the demo. At 9pm, Modern Family was hit hard after three weeks off, dropping six tenths in viewers and two tenths in the demo to a new series low by two tenths. With this and Empire in the 1s, it'll only be The Big Bang Theory getting a 2.0 demo or above this year. Yikes. At 9:30pm, Black-ish was even in viewers and down a tenth in the demo from last week's 9:30pm episode. At 10pm, Designated Survivor was down half a million viewers and two tenths in the demo.

CBS had a decent night, at least from 8-10pm. Survivor was down two tenths in viewers and even in the demo, topping Modern Family in the demo. At 9pm, Criminal Minds was up half a million viewers and two tenths in the demo for its best performance since October 26. You don't see that happening often in May. At 10pm, Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders was actually up too, rising four tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo. On NBC, Blindspot continued to hang around as it was down a tenth in viewers and even in the demo for a fifth straight episode. It is continuing to be a factor in renewal discussions. At 9pm, Law & Order: SVU had a rough week, falling a tenth in viewers and the demo to a series low. Perhaps it was hit by the Criminal Minds rise? At 10pm, Chicago PD was down a tenth in viewers and even in the demo. Finally on the CW, Arrow was even while The 100 was up a tenth in viewers and even in the demo.

WINNER OF THE NIGHT: Criminal Minds (CBS)
LOSER OF THE NIGHT: Law & Order: SVU (NBC)
