Wednesday night’s primetime broadcast ratings!

1. Modern Family triumphed with 11.4 million viewers, providing an excellent lead-in to…

2. …newcomer Black-ish, which held strong with 11.0 million. That’s a helluva debut for a sitcom.

3. Law & Order’s last surviving descendant SVU was close behind with 10.1 million.

4. People must have liked what they saw in last week’s premiere because the second episode of The Mysteries of Laura crushed it with 10.0 million.


5. Survivor is just inches behind with 9.8 million.

6. Chicago PD scored 8.5 million.

7. The Middle is still part of the pack with 7.6 million.

Other shows of interest… Nashville is on the map with 5.8 million, slightly down from last season’s premiere but slightly up from last season’s overall average. And FOX’s The Red Band Society is bleeding out with 3.4 million, down from 4.0 million for last week’s premiere.
