CBS led the Wednesday overnights care of its still solid combination of Survivor: Philippines (#1: 6.9 rating/11 share), Criminal Minds (#1 overall: 7.9/13) and granddaddy CSI (#1: 7.7/13), which remains a dominant force in season 13. Comparably, Survivor was right on par with the year-ago edition set in the South Pacific.
It was a three-way race for No. 2 overall the overnights, with two-hours of The X Factor on Fox (5.5/ 9) inching past ABC and NBC by one-tenth of a rating point. But one year earlier, The X Factor was notably stronger at a 7.7/12 in the 8-9:30 p.m. block on 11/30/11. Comparably, last night was down by 29 percent. The moral of the story: The Voice on NBC is a much stronger singing competition.
ABC’s crown jewel on Wednesday, of course, is Modern Family, which won the 9 p.m. half-hour with an 8.3/13. And that was 66 percent ahead of the 8:30 p.m. portion of encore holiday special A Charlie Brown Christmas (5.0/ 8). But Suburgatory at 9:30 p.m. dipped by 43 percent to a 4.7/ 7, which led into a third-place 4.5/ 8 for critical favorite Nashville at 10 p.m.
Overall, the repeat of A Charlie Brown Christmas finished third (tied with the first hour of The X Factor on Fox) with a respectable 5.3/ 9 from 8-9 p.m.
A night of specials was positive for NBC care of annual Christmas in Rockefeller Center (#2: 6.2/10 at 8 p.m.) and SNL Christmas, which averaged a 5.1/ 8 from 9-11 p.m. Comparably, Christmas in Rockefeller Center lifted NBC to its second best overnight average in the Wednesday 8 p.m. hour this season (behind a November 7 edition of The Voice). And the SNL special is also NBC’s second-highest rating in the Wednesday 9-11 p.m. block this season (again behind The Voice).
The CW capped off the evening with bona fide hit Arrow (#5: 2.6/ 4), which built by 73 percent from year-ago special A Muppets Christmas: Letters to Santa (1.5/ 2 on 11/30/11) and veteran Supernatural (#5: 1.5/ 2). While the overnight retention for Supernatural out of Arrow was only 58 percent, the young demo losses are not expected to be this severe.
