Fasts Demo 2016 Mar WED.09

CBS:  SURVIVOR was down 0.1 from last week, but at 2.1 it was still the highest rated show of the night.  A VICTORIA’S SECRET SWIM SPECIAL didn’t arouse more than 0.7, and CSI: CYBER’s 2d Wednesday airing (with a much lower lead-in) was down 0.2 to 1.0.

NBC:  A clip show from THE VOICE was at 2.0, but even with that solid lead-in, a preview of THE CARMICHAEL SHOW was so-so at 1.1, with a rerun episode following at 0.7.

FOX:  ROSEWOOD stayed at 0.9, but with less competition in the 9PM hour from CBS and ABC, HELL’S KITCHEN rose 0.2 to 1.2.

ABC:  2 hours of sitcom reruns (topped by 1.2s for MODERN FAMILY and BLACKISH) were followed by the season finale of AMERICAN CRIME, up 0.1 to 0.9.

CW:  Reruns at 0.3/0.3.

All the networks are new tonight, with the exception of a SVU rerun in the BLACKLIST slot on NBC.

COMPARISONS TO SIMILAR NIGHTS: Preliminary adult 18-49 ratings versus the same night last year and same night last week.
