Ratings: CBS wins Wednesday, ABC and NBC fight for second

Posted on

CBS continued to dominate Wednesday in the ratings, with CSI:NY and Criminal Minds standing as the evening’s most-watched programs, according to preliminary Nielsen numbers. The race for second place, however, is also something worth tuning in for: ABC averaged 7.3 million viewers, led by Modern Family, Cougar Town, The Middle, and Robin Roberts’ sit down with Janet Jackson; NBC averaged 7 million viewers, with freshman drama Mercy topping the 8 p.m. hour.
