TV ratings: CBS rolls Wednesday; 'The Middle' hits another series high

Fast National ratings for Wednesday, Nov. 3, 2010 CBS reclaimed Wednesday's top spot in the ratings as all three of its shows improved on last week's numbers. "Modern Family" and "Cougar Town" were down a bit for ABC, but the network's 8 o'clock shows continued to build, with "The Middle" hitting a series high in viewers for the second week in a row. CBS averaged 12.2 million viewers and a 7.2 rating/12 share among households in primetime, leading ABC (8.25 million, 5.1/8) by close to 4 million viewers. NBC (7.2 million, 4.8/8) came in third. A night of reruns on FOX delivered only 3.2 million viewers and a 2.0/3, but that was good enough to keep it ahead of The CW, which brought in 2.5 million people and a 1.6/3. The adults 18-49 battle was closer, but CBS still finished in the lead with a 3.3 rating. ABC came in second at 2.8 and was the only other network to score above a 2.0 in the demographic. NBC's 1.8 took third, followed by FOX, 1.3, and The CW, 1.1. To Read More Click Here.
