UPDATED: FX’s neo-Western shoot-em-up Justified returned solid in the ratings Wednesday night, serving up 3.5 million viewers and a 1.3 adult demo rating.

Granted that’s down 17 percent from its big series opener last year, but that number was the network’s second largest premiere audience ever. This is up about 40 percent from the show’s season one average..

Bravo’s Top Chef All-Stars, by and by, has improved since its somewhat modestly rated early episodes this season, and last night delivered a hearty 2.2 million viewers.
