TV Ratings: ABC Comedies Improve on Wednesday

'Modern Family' sees the most growth of the night
'The Goldbergs'

ABC's comedy block is was largely improved on Wednesday night after going head-to-head with The Voice last week. The growth helped propel the network to a nightly win among adults 18-49.

The Middle (2.2 adults) and The Goldbergs (2.4 adults) each posted three-tenths of a point improvement in the key demo, while Modern Family (3.7 adults) rebounded half of a point from its live-plus-same day season low. Black-ish (2.6 adults) and Nashville (1.5 adults) held steady.

Stalker (1.7 adults) saw substantial improvement on CBS, climbing three-tenths of a point, after steady outings of Survivor (2.4 adults) and Criminal Minds (2.3 adults). CBS topped the rest of the pack in total viewers.

Over on NBC, both Law & Order: SVU (1.8 adults) and Chicago PD (1.6 adults) dropped six-tenths of a point after last week's crossover boost. The Mysteries of Laura returned with a steady 1.4 rating in the key demo.

The rest of the broadcast fare was all steady with last week — with Hell's Kitchen (1.5 adults) and Red Band Society (0.9 adults) airing on Fox, and the CW screening new outings of Arrow (0.9 adults) and The 100 (0.6 adults).
