Modern Family wins; everyone else dips

‘Modern Family’ won another Wednesday night on an evening where viewership appears to be down across the board. NBC’s new entry in the Law & Order franchise won its slot in both viewers and 18-49.


Wednesday’s top show was ‘Modern Family’. The show did drop from last week’s 5.0, but no one came close to its 4.5 last night. ‘Cougar Town’ could not maintain the momentum: it registered only a 2.9 (down from 3.3) and lost 4 million of its lead-in audience.

‘Criminal Minds’ came in second overall with 14.41 million viewers (up from last week) and a 3.6 (down from last week’s 4.0).

‘Law & Order: SVU’ experienced a slight dip from last week, scoring a 2.7.

Modern Family‘s recent Emmy win gave the show a boost: The ABC comedy drew its highest rating ever on a night when several new shows failed to get much attention.

Family‘s Season 2 premiere drew 12.6 million viewers and was the night’s highest-rated show among adults 18 to 49, according to overnight Nielsen estimates. That demo rating was also a 19 percent improvement over the show’s debut last fall.

Full Season for “Modern Family”

Great news! So although the rating went down this week to 8.5 million, 5.3/8 (Aren’t you watching live? Who uses Tivo/Hulu?), ABC has given full season, nine episode orders to three fall comedies: “Modern Family,” “Cougar Town” and “The Middle.”

We really like “The Middle” (coming from a “flyover state” in the Midwest), so watch it if you haven’t yet; but we love “Modern Family,” and we are very excited for the rest of the season.

Not yet renewed: ABC’s Kelsey Grammer half-hour “Hank,” but that is not a big loss (or a big surprise for that matter given the low ratings).
