'Arrow' hits a series low, while every ABC show other than 'Mixology' rises
Fast National ratings for Wednesday, March 5, 2014.
"American Idol" got a small performance show uptick to narrowly avoid the ignominy of losing to "Survivor" and "Criminal Minds" among young viewers, while also leading FOX to slim victories in most key measures on Wednesday night.
Despite leading FOX to wins, "Idol" was neither the top show overall nor among young viewers on Wednesday.
The "Idol" decline-bump, up among young viewers but not overall, was fitting for an up-and-down Wednesday
There were declines for "Survivor," "CSI," "Law & Order: SVU," "Chicago PD," "Arrow" and "The Tomorrow People." While "Mixology" was down in its second week for ABC, the declines probably could have been worse, though expect a bigger fall in Finals.
"Mixology" was, in fact, ABC's only dropper as "The Middle," "Suburgatory," "Modern Family" and "Nashville" all rose.
On to the numbers...
