The mythical 12-12-12 code was solved last night, and it apparently translates to CBS-CBS-CBS, with the Eye winning both the demos and total viewers. One thing to keep in mind is that the big Hurricane Sandy concert/telethon was airing on cable during primetime last night, which most likely ate a good amount of the normal network audience up.
Survivor dropped a negligible amount, while Criminal Minds gained a bit. Unfortunately, CSI tanked, setting a series low and dropping 15% from last week. It was a similarly sad story for ABC comedies The Middle and The Neighbors, which posted a season and series low respectively. Even the almightly Modern Family hit a season low. The annual Barbara Walters special dropped too. That's what she gets for talking to freakin' Honey Boo Boo.
On FOX, The X-Factor dropped just slightly. In an NBC shocker, Whitney actually rose a little. Night 3 of Take It All was hurt bad by the change of lead-in from The Voice to a re-run of Guys With Kids though, dropping a staggering 50% from last night. Ouch. Chicago Fire then dropped 26%. As for the C-dubs, Arrow tied its series demo low, but still did okay for the 5th place network.
