CBS’ special two-hour Survivor: Edge of Extinction (1.3 demo rating, 7.03 million viewers) won its 8-10 PM time slot Wednesday night and was No. 1 for the night in both metrics, though it tied a series low for a regular episode in the demo. The reality veteran likely got dinged by NBC’s two-hour The Voice recap special (1.0, 5.98M) in the same two hours.
CBS moved Seal Team (0.7, 4.92M) to 10 PM for its return after two months off, where it won the slot in both metrics, though it hit new series lows in both too.
NBC’s The Voice clip job was the night’s second most watched show, followed at 10 PM by the network’s special Bublé! (0.5, 3.34M).
ABC’s 9 PM Modern Family (11, 4.25M) equaled its series demo low and set a new low in total viewers. That paved the way for 8 PM’s The Goldbergs (1.2, 4.48M) to top ABC’s Wednesday lineup, besting Modern Family for a second time this season.
Bookending Modern Family, Schooled (0.9, 3.59M) and Single Parents (0.7, 3.09M) each shed a tenth in demo rating.
Ditto Fox’s Empire (1.1, 3.95M) and Star (1.0, 3.24M).
ABC’s 10 PM Whiskey Cavalier (0.6, 3.67M), however, reproduced its previous week’s stat in the key 18-49 age bracket.
CW’s Riverdale musical (0.3, 832,000) did not move the needle but at least stayed steady. After which All American (0.2, 552K) followed suit.
CBS (1.1, 6.33M) was Wednesday’s most watched broadcast network; it tied Fox (1.1, 3.60M) for first in the demo. NBC (0.8, 5.10M) was night’s No. 2 in overall audience and No. 4 in the demo, behind also ABC (0.9, 3.79M). The CW (0.2, 692K) followed.
