Zap2it reports the rating for Wednesday:
Wednesday night’s ratings were significantly cooler than during premiere week, with pretty much every new show and several returning ones falling from their premieres. ABC’s “Modern Family” and “Cougar Town” still posted solid demographic ratings, though, and CBS’ crime dramas led the network to an overall win for the night. One exception to the downward trend was “Glee,” which actually built its audience over last week.

9 p.m.

CBS: “Criminal Minds” (13.6 million, 8.6/14)
ABC: “Modern Family” (9.9 million, 6.0/10)/”Cougar Town” (9.1 million, 5.7/9)
NBC: “Law & Order: SVU” (7.9 million, 5.3/8)
FOX: “Glee” (7.3 million, 4.4/7)
The CW: “Melrose Place” rerun (1.1 million, 0.8/1)

18-49 leader: “Modern Family” (3.7) – Yeah!!!

From ABC’s press release:

ABC finished in a virtual tie with CBS for No. 1 on the opening Wednesday of the ’09-10 TV Season in Adults 18-49, pacing within one-tenth of a rating point and tied in audience share (3.5/10 vs. 3.6/10). In fact the openers of ABC’s “Cougar Town” and “Modern Family” registered as TV’s highest-rated non-spinoff comedy debuts in nearly 2 years in the key young adult sales demo – since 10/15/07.
Versus ABC’s Wednesday night roll-out last year (on 10/1/08), the Net was up by 4.7 million viewers (11.9 million vs. 7.2 million) and by 35% in Adults 18-49 (3.5/10 vs. 2.6/7). ABC generated its most-watched Wednesday night in 10 months – since 11/12/08.
“Dancing with the Stars Results” (8:00-9:00 p.m.)
On the third evening of its 3-night premiere event, ABC’s “Dancing with the Stars” dominated the 8 o’clock hour in Total Viewers (15.4 million) and Adults 18-49 (3.3/10), topping second-place Fox’s “So You Think You Can Dance” by 32% in the key sales demo (2.5/8). In a double-elimination, Macy Gray and Ashley Hamilton were the first two celebrity dancers to be eliminated from the contest this season.

“Modern Family” (9:00-9:30 p.m.)
Surging 27% from its Adult 18-49 lead-in at 9:00 p.m. and becoming the first-ever comedy to build on “DWTS,” the series premiere of “Modern Family” ranked No. 1 in its half-hour among Adults 18-49 (4.2/11-tie).
“Modern Family” greatly improved the half-hour year to year for ABC, pacing ahead of the “Private Practice” (3.2/8) opener last season by 31% in Adults 18-49.
