Wednesday, September 25, 2013 ratings — Premieres: The Middle, Revolution, Back in the Game, Modern Family, Criminal Minds, Law & Order: SVU, Nashville, and CSI. Finales: Capture. New episodes: Survivor and The X Factor. Reruns: Arrow.
It was an okay start for Back in the Game, the sole new series of the evening. When compared to the 10/3/12 debut of The Neighbors, ABC was up by 16% in the demo and up by 25% in viewership (1.9 in the demo with 6.32 million).
As expected, Revolution didn’t come close to matching its year ago numbers but was on par with its series lows from last May. Law & Order: SVU saw a big jump.
On CBS, the three hour shows all saw significant drops. The returning ABC series also experienced big hits as well. On FOX, The X Factor had its best night of the season, despite the increased competition.
And on The CW, it looks like Capture ended its first (and only?) season with a uptick in the demo but, based on viewership, I expect it to be adjusted down.
