CBS’ Survivor went up. Annnnd that’s about it for the good news in Wednesday’s ratings, since every other major broadcast show declined to some degree.

The biggest dropper was the second episode of Fox’s I Hate My Teenage Daughter, which fell 25 percent from last week’s premiere. Teenage Daughter (5.4 million viewers, 2.1 adults 18-49 rating) probably wasn’t helped by ABC’s time-slot sitcom rival Happy Endings (6.5 million, 2.9) returning this week with a new original episode.

Overall: CBS won the night with Survivor (11.5 million, 3.3) rising 6 percent in its homestretch. Criminal Minds (12.3 million, 3.4) was down 8 percent. CSI (11.1 million, 2.5) dipped 4 percent, but won 10 p.m.

ABC had Modern Family (12.1 million, 5.0), down 11 percent from two weeks ago to a season low. The Middle (8.8 million, 2.8) and Suburgatory (8 million, 2.8) dipped a bit too. Revenge (7.3 million, 2.4) fell 8 percent to a season low.

Fox’s X Factor (10.5 million, 3.3) was down 11 percent.

NBC’s Up All Night (5 million, 1.8), Harry’s Law (7 million, 1.2), and Law & Order: SVU (6.9 million, 1.9) were down 5, 8 and 14 percent, respectively.

Grim, yes, but as noted in yesterday’s ratings, the December doldrums tend to send shows down to their lowest numbers of the season.
