-Ratings Breakdown:
It was an easy Wednesday victory for CBS, which bested the No. 2 network, Fox, by 2.2 overnight rating points. But the race among coveted adults 18-49 will, no doubt, be tighter.

Old faithful Survivor, themed Philippines this season, opened for the Eye net with a dominant 6.7 rating/12 share in the overnights at 8 p.m., which was just six percent below one year earlier (7.1/11 on 11/02/11). Next was veteran drama Criminal Minds (7.6/13: #1 from 9-10 p.m.), a true unsung primetime hero over the years, followed by granddaddy CSI at a dominant 7.2/13 at 10 p.m.. Opposite new dramas Nashville on ABC and Chicago Fire on NBC (each with a 4.2/ 7), CSI, year-to-year, increased by four percent. It is the drama that keeps on ticking!

Second-place Fox populated the evening with an encore telecast of The X Factor, which was on the map with a 4.9/ 8 in the overnights from 8-10 p.m.

Moving to ABC, a repeat of holiday special It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown, which always resonates among adults 18-49, tied The X Factor encore on Fox with a 4.7/ 8 at 8 p.m. Lead-out sitcom The Neighbors, which was just renewed for the full season, slipped to a series-low 3.6/ 6 (#3) at 8:30 p.m. Comparatively, that was a loss of 25 percent from one week earlier (4.8/ 8 on Oct. 24, which led out of a 6.1/10 for The Middle), and the retention out of the Charlie Brown repeat was 77 percent.

Next on ABC was beloved Modern Family, which won the 9 p.m. half-hour with a 7.5/12 (and will lead the night among adults 18-49), followed by relocated Suburgatory at a third-place 4.6/ 8 at 9:30 p.m. Retention for Suburgatory out of Modern Family was modest at 61 percent. One year earlier, former time period occupant Happy Endings averaged a 5.0/ 8 out of an 8.9/14 for Modern Family (which was 56 percent retention).

At 10 p.m. on ABC was aforementioned week four of Nashville, which sunk to a series-low 4.2/ 7 in the overnights. Compared to year-ago occupant Revenge (6.4/11 on 11/02/11), this was a loss of 34 percent, but the retention out of Suburgatory was solid at 91 percent. Four-week overnight track for Nashville: 6.8/12 – 5.0/ 9 – 4.8/ 8 – 4.2/ 7.

Over at NBC, a last minute edition of soon-to-conclude 30 Rock finished a distant fourth with a 2.6/ 5 at 8 p.m. Next was Guys With Kids at a series-low 2.4/ 4 at 8:30 p.m., which dipped by 23 percent from one week earlier (versus a 3.1/ 5 on Oct. 24), followed by veteran Law & Order: SVU at a 4.1/ 7 from 9-10 p.m. (#4). Worth positively noting for Law & Order: SVU, of course, was the overnight growth of 71 percent from Guys With Kids.

Week four of aforementioned Chicago Fire closed the night for NBC with a 4.2/ 7 (#2) at 10 p.m., which remains perfectly compatible out of Law & Order: SVU (and is worthy of a full season episode order in this writer’s opinion). Four-week overnight track for Chicago Fire: 4.7/ 8 – 4.2/ 7 – 4.3/ 8 – 4.2/ 7.

On The CW, drama Arrow lost some steam with a 2.4/ 4 (#5) from 8-9 p.m. But this was still 167 percent above an encore telecast of short-lived drama Ringer on the year-ago evening (0.9/ 1 on 10/24/11). Four week overnight track for Arrow: 3.0/ 5 – 2.8/ 5 – 2.7/ 5 – 2.4/ 4. Next was tired Supernatural at a 1.3/ 2 at 9 p.m., which dipped by 24 percent from year-ago occupant America’s Next Top Model (1.7/ 3 on 11/02/11). Retention for Supernatural out of Arrow was minimal at 54 percent. The network could do better here.
