CBS and Fox dominated the overnights on this first Wednesday in December, but The X Factor should be enough to lead Fox to overall victory among adults 18-49. The Eye net was below average minus regularly scheduled CSI at 10 p.m.
Always-reliable Survivor: Philippines opened the night for CBS with a dominant 7.0 rating/11 share at 8 p.m., which was six percent above the year-ago telecast set in the South Pacific. She may not be the best at challenges, but Lisa Whelchel, in my humble opinion, is playing one of the most honorable games in the history of Survivor. And this wise decision to participate in Survivor should rejuvenate the former sitcom star’s career.
Next on the Eye net was veteran Criminal Minds, which won the 9 p.m. hour at a stable 7.3/12 in the overnights, followed by 10 p.m. special The Grammy Nominations Concert Live! – A Countdown to Music’s Biggest Night at a third-place 3.6/ 7. Comparably, the Grammy Nominations special was down by a hefty 53 percent from regularly scheduled CSI one week earlier (7.7/13 on Nov. 28). And retention out of the 9:30 p.m. portion of Criminal Minds (7.3/12) was only 49 percent.
Aforementioned The X Factor on Fox scored a 6.0/ 9 in the overnights from 8-10 p.m., peaking at a 6.1/10 from 8:30-9:30 p.m. Comparably, this was just three percent below the 6.2/10 on the year-ago evening.
Over at ABC, The Middle kicked-off the night with a third-place 5.5/ 9 at 8 p.m., followed by kooky The Neighbors (#3: 4.3/ 7), an encore telecast of Modern Family (#3: 5.9/ 9), sophomore Suburgatory (#3t, 4.7/ 7) and recent drama entry Nashville, which finished second at 10 p.m. with a 4.5/ 8. As a reminder, Suburgatory moves back to Wednesday at 8:30 p.m. effective on April 3, with new sitcom How to Live with Your Parents (for the Rest of Your Life), with Sarah Chalke, Elizabeth Perkins and Brad Garrett, inheriting the 9:30 p.m. time period. Family Tools, a new comedy with Leah Remini that mixes family and business, will step into the Wednesday 8:30 p.m. half-hour (in place of Suburgatory) on May 1.
Elsewhere, Chicago Fire was the standout on NBC. Without CSI in the competitive mix, the freshman Dick Wolf drama won the 10 p.m. hour with a series-high 5.2/ 9. Comparably, that built from the 9:30 p.m. portion of veteran lead-in Law & Order: SVU (#4: 4.7/ 7) by 11 percent and it built by a hefty 41 percent from its most recent overnight performance (3.7 on Nov. 21) by 41 percent.
Earlier in the evening on NBC were low-rated sitcoms Whitney (#4: 2.8/ 5), which is not an improvement from canceled Animal Practice, and Guys With Kids (#4: 2.6/ 4) from 8-9 p.m., followed by aforementioned Law & Order: SVU at a fourth-place 4.5/ 7 from 9-10 p.m.
Over at The CW, bona fide hit Arrow scored a 2.5/ 4 at 8 p.m., which was almost triple the 0.9/ 1 for an encore telecast of America’s Got Talent on the year-ago evening. Next was Supernatural at a typical 1.5/ 2 at 9 p.m., which dipped by a 40 percent from Arrow.
