-Ratings Breakdown:
ABC, the only network to offer all original programming, led the Wednesday overnights with a 20 percent advantage over second-place CBS. In the distant No. 3 spot was repeat-populated NBC, followed by Fox and The CW, which featured two more encore telecasts of The Secret Circle.

ABC dominated in five of the six half-hours with its line-up of underrated The Middle (#1: 6.7 rating/11 share), compatible Suburgatory (#1, 6.1/ 9), which has a solid shot a second season renewal, standout Modern Family (#1: 9.6/15), Happy Endings (#2: 5.3/ 8), which continues to squander the lead-in support, and freshman favorite Revenge (#1: 5.9/10). Retention for Happy Endings out of Modern Family, the top-rated show of the evening, was lacking at just 55 percent. Revenge, which faced repeats of CSI on CBS (#2: 5.5/ 9) and tired Law & Order: SVU on NBC (#3: 3.0/ 5) built by a hefty 58 percent from year-ago special, Celebrity Weight Loss – What Really Happens (3.6/ 6 on 1/5/11).

Over at CBS, ongoing special I Get That A Lot, which featured Ty Pennington, Apolo Anton Ohno, Pauley Perrette, Pamela Anderson and Jerry Springer, finished a confortable second in the 8 p.m. hour with a 5.5/ 9. That led into encore telecasts of Criminal Minds (#2: 5.5/ 9) and aforementioned CSI (#2: 5.5/ 9) from 9-11 p.m.

On Fox, a repeat of Glee (#4: 1.9/ 8 at 8 p.m.), certainly not the draw it once was, led into the next installment of Howie Mandel-hosted Mobbed, which lacked at 9 p.m. with a fourth-place 2.1/ 4 in the overnights. Comparably, that was a series low.

Elsewhere, NBC filled the evening with encore telecasts of Up All Night (#3: 2.5/ 4), Whitney (#4: 2.3/ 4), Harry’s Law (#3, 3.3/ 5) and aforementioned Law & Order: SVU (#3: 3.0/ 5). And two repeat hours of The Secret Circle on The CW averaged a mere 0.8/ 1 from 8-10 p.m.

As a reminder, freshman NBC comedy Whitney moves into the Wednesday 8 p.m. anchor position on Jan. 11, leading into Are You There, Chelsea? at 8:30 p.m. Inspired by Chelsea Handler’s autobiographical book, a highly opinionated single young woman in her 20s (Laura Prepon) who works as a cocktail waitress is the focus. Recently introduced Rock Center with Brian Williams moves into the Wednesday 9 p.m. hour, followed by veteran Law & Order: SVU. On The CW, the ninth (and final) season of One Tree Hill opens on Wednesday, Jan. 11 at 8 p.m., leading into non-scripted Remodeled, which steps in for tired America’s Next Top Model. Remodeled centers around modeling industry veteran Paul Fisher as he tries to bring together hundreds of small agencies around the world in a new venture called The Network.
