There was some highs and some very big lows on Wednesday. We saw Survivor premiere higher than its previous season with a 2.7/9 and 9.65m with the Big Brother finale scoring a 2.6/8 and 7m viewers helping CBS take the night.
Over on ABC some promising signs with Modern Family returning with 3.7/11 and 10.93m. Its down on last years premiere but on par with the season finale of last season but the big news was Black-ish. It scored 3.3/10 and 10.79m. In saying this a very mixed response. The other comedies of the night saw The Middle score 2.1/8 and 7.39m, The Goldbergs is up from the season finale last season with a 2.3/6 and 6.97m while Nashville continues to be ABC's weak link on Wednesday with 1.5/5 and 5.6m viewers.
Elsewhere saw FOX continue to struggle. Who knew The X Factor despite lowish ratings was doing better than what they are currently offering. Hells Kitchen scored just 1.3/5 and 3.7m viewers while the critically loved Red Band Society could only manage 1.0/3 and 3.4m viewers. It sucks because i have seen the first 2 episodes and i love the show. Another new show i like is going to get cancelled.
The Mysteries of Laura nosedived down to 1.5/5 and 9.9m viewers. Law and Order: SVU continues to be a good NBC staple with 2.1/6 and 10.1m viewers while Chicago PD did decently for 10pm with 1.9/6 and 8.4m. CW saw a Penn & Teller: Fool Us episode scoring 0.5/2 and 1.51m along with a repeat episode.
Next Wednesday Criminal Minds and the premiere of Stalker which i think looks good.
Thursday sees the return of ABC's juggernauts Grey's Anatomy and Scandal in their new timeslots plus the premiere of How To Get Away with Murder, while favourites Parenthood and Bones also return to the schedule. At this rate if Bones holds up like last season it could be one of 2 remaining dramas on FOX by seasons end.
