CBS won Wednesday in all measures.
The just renewed 'Survivor' dropped slightly to a 2.5, but still easily topped the 8 p.m. hour. 'Criminal Minds' matched its last original episode in the demos, and won the night in total viewership. 'CSI' fell two tenths to a 1.8.
'The Middle' rose a smidge to a 2.0. The long since canceled 'Back in the Game' rose to a 1.5. 'Modern Family' recovered nicely from last week's season low, jumping up three tenths to a 3.5. Lead-out 'Super Fun Night' also rose, increasing two tenths to a 1.8. 'SFN' isn't quite a total goner at this point, but is running out of time to try and get back up over the 2.0 threshold. 'Nashville' dropped two tenths to a 1.4, matching its previous series low.
The bloom is already off 'The Sing-Off's rose. NBC's resurrected reality competition program plunged down six tenths from Monday night's premiere, earning a 1.8. A Kelly Clarkson holiday musical special posted a 1.4, the same rating that a similar Michael Buble holiday special garnered last year.
'The X-Factor' matched last week's 1.4, and seems to be settling into a consistent range. However, it remains to be seen whether that range is high enough to earn the embattled show a fourth season. 'Arrow' dipped a single tenth to a 1.1, but still did more than fine by CW standards. 'The Tomorrow People' fell to a somewhat worrying 0.5, its lowest rating to date.
