Fast National ratings for Wednesday, Feb. 26, 2014The 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.

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.

NBC (6.8 million, 4.4/7) came in third, followed by ABC (5.9 million, 3.9/6).
