For those of you who were interested in seeing where some of the new shows of the season were eventually going to end up in the ratings, Wednesday night’s lineup was a pretty strong indicator for you as you had some shows rise to the occasion, and a few more start to trickle down after big starts.
The good news for “Arrow” is that even though it lost two-tenths of its 18-49 audience from last week, it still finished here with a rating of a 1.1 that is the second-strongest the network has save for “The Vampire Diaries.”It also gets a ton of total viewers, but this show tends to skew older than anything else on the network. The only thing troubling about The CW is that “Supernatural” fell three-tenths to a 0.7, but we think this is more because the majority of people who watched their found footage experiment hated it, and a good many probably tuned out midway through but will be back next week for more.
Elsewhere, “Nashville” on ABC received good news in that it actually held on to all of its viewers from last week, which should at least be enough to get it a full season if it keeps this up for one more week. Meanwhile, “Chicago Fire” actually rose by a good 20% over on NBC to end with a 1.8 that tied “Law & Order: SVU” for the best show they had to offer on the night. Want some irony? “Animal Practice” actually rose to a 1.2 after the news of its cancellation broke.
There’s not too much else to report save for the obvious fact that “Modern Family” won the night with a 4.9, and “Survivor: Philippines” was steady with a 2.8 that shows yet again how loyal these viewers are.
Do you think that these will be the ratings we see for these shows the rest of the season?
