Primetime Ratings, Wednesday, 10/3/12

Obama/Romney Debate

As you might expect, the night was dominated by coverage of the first 2012 Presidential Debate, which aired on all the big four networks from 9-11pm. As for what other shows did, The X-Factor matched last week's totals. Survivor dropped 6% from last week. The Middle and The Neighbors both dropped big time. On the other hand, NBC comedies Guys With Kids and Animal Practice saw a slight uptick. The eighth season premiere of Supernatural came in dead even with last year's debut, which is quite impressive when you consider that it was the only new episode to air opposite the debate. Winchester fans are definitely very loyal.
