ABC’s CMA Awards (4.8/12 in adults 18-49, 16.3 million viewers) was unshaped last night by going head-to-head with another music performance program, Fox’s The X Factor. The CMA Awards were actually up a tenth (2%) in 18-49 from last year to hand ABC a nightly win in 18-49 and total viewers. X Factor (3.7/10, 10.1 million) posted a 5% decline from its fast national last week. CBS’ lineup also was pushed down by the country awards show. Survivor (3.1/9, 10.6 million) was the hardest hit, down 11% in the demo from its fast national last Wednesday, when the veteran reality show was adjusted up in the finals to a season high. Criminal Minds (3.4/8, 11.3 million) was down 6%, CSI (2.5/7, 10.1 million) down 7%. NBC’s rookie Up All Night (1.8/5, 4.8 million) was even with its series low last week, while veteran Law & Order: SVU (1.9/5, 6.6 million) was down 5% to a series low. But the series that bridges them, Harry’s Law (1.3/3, 7.1 million), climbed 18% to match its season high. Will that help the sophomore clinch a back episodic order? The legal dramedy was once again the most-watched program on NBC.
