‘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.

Elsewhere, Claire is forced to get her husband Phil emergency treatment when a bout of kidney stones hits him, and Mitchell and Cameron have a difficult time training Lily to sleep.
