Primetime Ratings, Wednesday, 1/8/14

 

Chicago P.D.

 

CBS won the night in all measures.

Despite winning the night for CBS, 'The People's Choice Awards' dropped three tenths from last year, posting a 2.4. This represents the lowest number for the ceremony since back in 2008. 'The Middle' rose two tenths for ABC, garnering a 2.2.

A special 8:30 airing of 'Super Fun Night' fell to a 1.5, an all time low for the freshman comedy. 'Modern Family' matched its most recent episode's 3.5, topping the night in individual demos. Another new 'Super Fun Night' at 9:30 rose to a 1.7.

'Revolution' rose slightly for NBC, earning a 1.5. 'Law & Order: SVU' rather inexplicably rocketed up half a point to a 2.1. I honestly have no idea why, as the episode didn't receive special hype, and its lead-in hasn't changed. Weird. The series premiere of 'Chicago P.D.' scored a 2.0, way up from 'Ironside's debut in the same slot last fall, and right in line with 'Deception's first outing last January.

Thanks for the perspective, Anonymous. I'm only a casual SVU viewer, and if Wednesday's episode was hyped up within the hardcore fan community, that could certainly explain the sudden rise.
