TV Ratings: 'Empire' Mostly Steady on Rerun-Heavy Wednesday
Empire drifted downward on Wednesday night, with its live-plus-same-day showing hitting a 3.6 rating among adults 18-49. That's off just two-tenths of a point and still more than enough to propel Fox to a nightly win. Lead-in Rosewood nabbed a 1.2 rating in the key demo.
Survivor was up a shade on CBS, the No. 2 spot for the night with a 2.0 rating among adults 18-49. That was before an even Criminal Minds (1.7 adults) and a steady Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders (1.3 adults).
NBC saw Heartbeat garner a 0.8 rating with adults 18-49, while the rest of the drama block aired repeats. Nashville marked ABC's lone new entry for the night, also nabbing a 0.8 rating in the key demo.
The CW was also in repeats.
