Fox won Wednesday evening among the advertiser-coveted adults 18-49 demographic with the help of a small American Idol uptick. Idol's top 12 performance show was on par in viewership with 10.5 million total viewers and up 4 percent in the 18-49 demo with a 2.7 rating. Meanwhile, CBS' primetime lineup see-sawed.

CSI (9.2 million, 1.7) dropped 15 percent from its last original in

Fox won Wednesday’s ratings race behind “American Idol,” though the music contest was beaten out as the night’s top program by ABC’s “Modern Family” in key demos and CBS’ “Criminal Minds” in total viewers. Also of note, NBC came back to earth one week after a crossover storyline boosted its crime dramas, and CW’s “Arrow” hit a low.
According to preliminary national estimates from Nielsen, “American Idol” averaged a 2.7 rating/8 share in adults 18-49 and 10.5 million viewers overall from 8 to 10 p.m., up slightly in the demo from its prelim score of last week and on par in total viewers. It won its two-hour block in most categories.
Elsewhere, CBS was a solid second in demos as well as total viewers behind solid performances from “Survivor” (2.4/7 in 18-49, 9.6 million viewers overall), which matched its two-hour season premiere score of last week, and “Criminal Minds” (2.6/7 in 18- »

It was all American Idol (2.7/8) as usual last night on Fox with things up a bit from last week. The 2-hour live show saw this season’s Top 12 belting out tunes, including Emily Piriz taking on Jennifer Lopez’s “Let’s Get Loud” right in front of the judge herself. It also saw Idol bopping up 4% from last week’s demo rating and steady in total viewers with 10.5 million, in line with the 10.6 million total from the show’s February 26 episode. Fox won the night among the key demo and among total viewers. CBS’ Criminal Minds was tops for the night in total viewers with 11.37 million and second in the key demo with a 2.6/7, an 18% rise over last week. Criminal Minds did beat Idol again in viewers head-to-head, as the Fox show pulled in 10.58 million during their common hour. The demo result was also the closest the CBS show has ever gotten to Idol. »

Fast National ratings for Wednesday, March 5, 2014
"American Idol" ticked up slightly Wednesday with its Top 12 performances, improving a little in adults 18-49 (although dipping a small amount in total viewers). It was enough to give Fox a win across the board for the night.
ABC's "Modern Family" also improved its adults 18-49 rating over last week and was the night's top show in the demographic, while episode 2 of "Mixology" held onto nearly all of its premiere rating. "Criminal Minds" was also up for CBS. The news wasn't as good for The CW's "Arrow" and "The Tomorrow People," both of which dropped, or NBC's "Chicago Pd," which tied its series low.
Fox scored 10.5 million viewers and a 6.4 rating/10 share in households in primetime, edging CBS' 10.1 million and 6.3/10. ABC (6 million, 3.8/6) came in third. NBC (5.6 million, 3.7/6) came in fourth, and The CW (1.8 million, 1.2/2) trailed.
Fox's 2.7 rating in the 18-49 demo was half a »
Not only did CBS’ Survivor return higher in ratings for last week’s premiere, Wednesday’s second episode managed to remain unchanged and avoid a second-week dip. The hour had 9.6 million viewers and a 2.4 adults 18-49 rating, same in the demo as last week, beating most other shows on the air.
Fox won the night with American Idol, up a notch. CBS was second with Criminal Minds rising from last week’s special 10 p.m. airing and CSI dipping. ABC ranked third with the comedy block rising rising from last week’s lows, new sitcom Mixology down 6 percent from last »

Fast National ratings for Wednesday, March 5, 2014. "American Idol" got a small performance show uptick to narrowly avoid the ignominy of losing to "Survivor" and "Criminal Minds" among young viewers, while also leading Fox to slim victories in most key measures on Wednesday night. Despite leading Fox to wins, "Idol" was neither the top show overall nor among young viewers on Wednesday. The "Idol" decline-bump, up among young viewers but not overall, was fitting for an up-and-down Wednesday There were declines for "Survivor," "CSI," "Law & Order: Svu," "Chicago Pd," "Arrow" and "The Tomorrow People." While "Mixology" was down in its second week for ABC, the declines probably could have been worse, though expect a bigger fall in Finals. "Mixology" was, in fact, ABC's only dropper as "The Middle," "Suburgatory," "Modern Family" and "Nashville" all rose. On to the numbers... Among adults 18-49, Fox averaged a 2.7 rating for Wednesday night, topping CBS' 2.2 rating in the key demographic. »

NBC’s Constantine pilot has completed casting. Harold Perrinau will play an angel who watches over John Constantine and True Blood alum Lucy Griffiths (she played Eric‘s sister) is an “offbeat young lady” who joins forces with Constantine.
Aubrey Peeple, who plays Layla on Nashville talked with TV Guide about her character’s relationship with closeted singer Will, ” I think that him being good for her career was a huge factor in why they got together. But at this point … she’s totally head over heels for him, because she’s 19. There will always be that aspect of her career that drives her, and that’s what comes first. But she’s a hormonal teenager. She’s in love with him now.” Peeple also hints that Will and Layla’s storyline should get some major developments soon.
I just want Trent back on the show.

The CSI franchise is spawning yet another series, this time set in the FBI’s Cyber Crime Division in Quantico, Virginia. While there’s no official name yet for the new CBS show, there is a lead, as Medium and True Romance star Patricia Arquette is set to be front and center of a team tasked with solving crimes that “start in the mind, live online, and play out in the real world.” Arquette’s Medium, a supernatural procedural drama, aired on NBC from January 2005 to January 2011 and coincidentally ran directly against CBS’s CSI: Miami and, in later seasons, CSI: NY. Arquette won the Emmy Award for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series for her fictionalized portrayal of real-life medium Allison DuBois in its first season on air. Her newest role as Special Agent Avery Ryan will put her in the driver’s seat like her fellow CSI counterparts William Petersen, David Caruso »

It’s been about a decade since the last episode of Angel, the Buffy the Vampire Slayer spin-off series about the vampire with a soul, aired. The final episode of season five, Not Fade Away, first appeared on Us television screens on 19 May 2004. That seems simultaneously like a very long time ago, and not very long ago at all, because time is vast and human brains are small and fallible, but it’s safe to say that in TV years, it’s a pretty long goddamned time.
The men and women behind the characters we used to spend one night a week with have gone on to other things – some bigger and better, others kind of rubbish – and unless you’re a particularly obsessive superfan, you »
Ellen DeGeneres is generally thought of as the anti-Ricky Gervais. She's a friendly, inoffensive choice to host an awards show, who is sure to leave everyone with warm and fuzzy feelings ... right? Wrong. In her opening monologue at Sunday night's Academy Awards, Ellen bared her claws, leaving no nominee unspared. The mood may have been a little sharper than Oscar producers expected, but there's no denying that Ellen gave one of the better Oscar monologues in recent memory. Below, the host's best zingers, ranked. Photos: The Night's Stunning Couples5. To Liza Minnellii: "Hello to the best Liza Minnelli impersonator I've ever seen. »

Aside from her many awkward pauses and glances that can’t be described in words, here are a few funny highlights from her opening monologue; check back for an updated list of jokes as the night progresses.

Fast National ratings for Wednesday, Feb. 26, 2014
The premiere of ABC's comedy "Mixology" was the ratings equivalent of a well drink Wednesday: It got the job done, but it was by no means great. The show opened well below where "Super Fun Night" did in the fall and also retained less of its "Modern Family" lead-in than the "Sfn" premiere.
Elsewhere Wednesday, a crossover with "Law & Order: Svu" pushed "Chicago Pd" to a series high in adults 18-49. "American Idol" was even with last week for Fox, and the premiere of "Survivor: Cagayan" improved on last spring's debut and was about even with the start of the fall cycle. "Arrow" was also fairly steady for The CW.
Fox led the night with 10.6 million viewers and a 6.6 rating/10 share in households, beating out Fox's 9.7 million and 6.1/10. NBC (6.8 million, 4.4/7) came in third, followed by ABC (5.9 million, 3.9/6). The CW drew a shade under 2 million »
Despite a lackluster performance by U.S. athletes in an Olympics held nine hours away (twelve if you’re on the West Coast), NBC delivered impressive ratings for its coverage of the Sochi Games — not only in primetime but across all platforms.
NBC easily captured last week’s ratings race, of course, though not by the record margins of the previous week. Its 4.2 rating/12 share in adults 18-49 was higher than the combined primetime scores of Fox (1.8/5), ABC (1.1/3) and CBS (also 1.1/3), according to Nielsen, and its overall viewership of 17.8 million was similarly more than its chief rivals put together (16.4 million).
Overall, the 18 nights of the Winter Olympics averaged a 5.5 rating in adults 18-49 and 21.4 million viewers, generating record-setting advantages of 51% in the demo and 45% in total viewers over its ABC-cbs-Fox combined competition. The Games stood as the top-rated program on all 18 nights, vs. 14 of 17 from Vancouver in 2010 and eight of »

Interview Magazine is shooting some fairly famous models for their American Hustle spread, including Adam Kai, Brian Shimansky, Chad White, Jamie Wise, Jordan Elias, Kurt Collins, Landon Falgoust, Veit Couturier and Schuyler in some high fashion clothes that evoke street hustlers and leather bars in an erotically charged style that’s worth checking out.
Arizona Governor Jan Brewer is under intense pressure to veto the Right To Discriminate bill on her desk, with state senators changing their minds, both Senators urging a veto, the Chamber of Commerce coming out against the law. But possibly most visible is the fact that Arizona is set to host the next Super Bowl, and the NFL, the host committee and the Arizona Cardinals are all alarmed. »

NBC’s coverage of the Winter Olympics dominated once again Wednesday, while Fox’s “American Idol” tumbled to its lowest score ever on the night — beaten head-to-head in total viewers by CBS’ “Criminal Minds” for the first time.
In latenight, meanwhile, NBC’s “Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” nearly matched its preliminary Tuesday numbers and again easily beat its rivals.
According to preliminary national estimates from Nielsen, the Sochi Games on NBC averaged a 5.0 rating/15 share in adults 18-49 and 20.1 million viewers overall during primetime, down about 10% week to week as the Olympics tend to lose some steam down the stretch. Wednesday’s action, which included figure skating, men’s alpine skiing and women’s bobsled, was off vs. the comparable night four years ago in Vancouver by 9% in the demo but just 2% in total viewers.
At Fox, “American Idol” averaged a 2.6 rating/8 share in adults 18-49 and 9.9 million viewers overall, »

Day 14 of the NBC’s Olympic coverage Wednesday remained steady in viewers (20.1 million) versus the 2010 Vancouver Games (20.3 mil), but 18-49 ratings dropped 9% for the night to 5.0, according to Nielsen. Still, those numbers were wildly better than what the competish averaged, with ABC flat-out waiving the white flag by airing mostly repeats.
Let’s start with NBC and where it stands as it prepares to wrap up its Olympic coverage. Overall, Sochi is down from Vancouver by 13% in 18-49 (5.9 vs. 6.8) and 10% in viewers (22.5 vs. 24.9 million), as well as down 6% from Torino in 18-49 (5.9 vs. 6.3).
