'Survivor' wins Wednesday despite record low

17 April 2014 9:51 AM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

Survivor won/lost Wednesday night: The CBS reality veteran was the top-rated show (yay!) and had the lowest rating in its history (boo!).

Survivor edged out Fox’s American Idol to take the lead last night among adults 18-49, while The CW’s Arrow was steady and The 100 climbed a tick.

The rest of the grid? All repeats, save ABC freshman underachiever Mixology. With May sweeps around the corner, broadcast networks are getting their repeats out of the way, so next month will finish strong-ish. Full chart:

Ratings Rat Race: ‘Arrow’ Down, ‘Survivor’ & ‘Idol’ Steady,’The 100′ Rises

17 April 2014 9:22 AM, PDT | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

On a night of a lot of repeats on the networks, it was primetime battle between veteran reality shows last night. And though Survivor (2.2/8) dipped 8% from last week, the CBS show again was the reality TV victor. With 9.28 million viewers watching between 8-9 Pm, the 28-season-strong series topped the 8.25 million total viewers and 1.9 rating among adults 18-49 American Idol had in their common hour. This is the fourth week in a row Survivor has beaten Idol in viewership and the sixth consecutive week the CBS show has come out on top in the demo in the 8 Pm slot. Still, it wasn’t a stain-free victory march — as the numbers stand now, Survivor has hit a series low. That could change when the final numbers come in later today. Otherwise, CBS was all encores with Criminal Minds (1.4/4) and CSI (1.2/4). With visits from former X Factor judge Demi Lovato and Terry Bradshaw among others, »

17 April 2014 9:19 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

On a Wednesday where the top show on ABC, CBS and NBC all aired in repeats, Fox emerged the ratings winner with its two-hour “American Idol,” though it again lost out head-to-head to CBS’ “Survivor,” which was the night’s top show.

TV Ratings: Dipping 'American Idol' leads Fox to Wednesday wins, while 'The 100' gets a bump

17 April 2014 8:45 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Fast National ratings for Wednesday, April 16, 2014. With "Criminal Minds" and "CSI" both in repeats, "American Idol" was able to post week-to-week declines and lose the 8 p.m. hour to "Survivor: Cagayan," but still win Wednesday primetime in all measures. Because the 8 p.m. hour remained competitive, a new "Arrow" posted no real gains for The CW, but against mostly repeats in the 9 p.m. hour, "The 100" was up over last week's "Arrow"-free airing and also returned to 2 million viewers for the first time since its second episode. On to Wednesday's numbers... Among adults 18-49, Fox averaged a 1.9 rating for Wednesday night, topping CBS' 1.6 rating in the key demographic. NBC was third with a 1.2 key demo rating, followed by ABC's 1.1 key demo rating, while The CW's 0.7 key demo rating was fifth. Overall, Fox averaged an estimated 8.38 million viewers and a 5.2 rating/8 share for Wednesday, beating CBS' 4.9/8 and 7.67 million viewers. There »

'Heathers': An oral history

4 April 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

“Do you think there’s ever been another movie like Heathers?” Winona Ryder asks in her tiny, forever-a-kid voice, and then listens quietly. She’s genuinely curious. Your brain races through the obvious choices. Mean Girls, Clueless, Jawbreaker—teen-girl comedies with a drop of caustic in their lip gloss. But in 25 years, no high school movie has ever come close to the bloodthirsty wit and sweet-faced nihilism of Heathers, the 1989 satire about an Ohio high school where suicide becomes a scrunchie-level fad. “I looove this movie—to the point where I talk about it like I’m not even in it, »
