For the twelfth straight week, American Idol brought FOX the victory in all measures. Yes, I am gonna keep putting this at the top here every week, why do you ask?
Speaking of AI, it set yet another all time Wednesday low, falling to a 3.0. Survivor also tied its own series low of 2.4. Criminal Minds fell 7%. CSI fell 9%. ABC's The Middle recovered a bit after last week's season low. Suburgatory hopped slots to 8:30pm, falling 5% from last week's episode, but majorly besting what the finale of The Neighbors previously pulled down in the same slot.
Modern Family jumped back in to high gear, climbing up almost a full point to a 4.1. The series premiere of Sarah Chalke's new sitcom How To Live With Your Parents (For The Rest Of Your Life) blew past expectations, putting up a 2.9. demo and 8.3 million viewers. Nashville rose 13%.
A new Dateline earned NBC its highest numbers in the Wednesday at 8pm slot in 12 weeks. Law & Order: SVU dropped 6%, as did Chicago Fire. Arrow matched last week's 0.9 for the CW. Supernatural saw a rare decrease in its very consistent numbers, falling to an 0.8.
