TV Ratings: 'Black-ish' Grows and 'The Dovekeepers' Drops in Conclusion
ABC topped Wednesday night in the key demo, with Black-ish scoring some solid growth at 9:30 p.m. The comedy averaged a 2.4 rating among adults 18-49, up three-tenths of a point from last week. Modern Family (2.9 adults) was even after The Middle (1.7 adults) and The Goldbergs (1.9 adults) shed two-tenths of a point. Nashville (1.3 adults) was steady.
American Idol nabbed a flat 1.7 rating with adults 18-49 on Fox — topping CBS, which saw the second part of The Dovekeepers fizzle. The two-hour conclusion averaged a 0.9 rating in the key demo and 6.4 million viewers, shedding about a third of its Tuesday audience. Survivor (2.1 adults) started the night off down just two-tenths of a point.
Steady episodes of The Mysteries of Laura (1.0 adults) and Chicago P.D. (1.6 adults) book-ended a slightly boosted Law & Order: SVU (1.5 adults) on NBC. The drama rose two-tenths of a point.
On The CW, Arrow (0.8 adults) dropped two-tenths of a point from last week as well, ahead of a mostly steady Supernatural (0.6 adults).
