For the First Time Ever ABC's Modern Family Catches Empire as Wednesday's #1 TV Show

ABC Wednesday Prime (8-11pm - 5.2 million and 1.3/5 in AD18-49): For the first time ever, ABC's Modern Family tied Fox's Empire as Wednesday's #1 TV series with Adults 18-49 (1.9/7). And despite leading off the night against Empire, ABC's The Goldbergs (1.6/7) tied or beat all 6 of the CBS and NBC shows on the night, matching CBS' Survivor (1.6/6), while beating Seal Team (1.2/5) and Criminal Minds (1.1/4), NBC's The Blacklist (1.0/4), Law & Order: SVU (1.3/5) and Chicago PD (1.2/5). Each of ABC's Wednesday series paced within 1-2 tenths of the prior week's season premieres and the comedies performed at or above of where they closed out in their May finales. ABC finished #2 on Wednesday night in Adults 18-49 (1.3/5-tied w/CBS), beating NBC by 18% (1.1/4).

· Largely closing the gap week to week to come within 2-tenths of tying Fox's Empire for #1 in the 8pm half-hour (vs. 6-tenths last week), ABC's The Goldbergs ran a strong second in the half-hour with Adults 18-49 (1.6/7- tied w/Survivor).

· At 8:30pm against the second half hours of Empire and Survivor, ABC's Speechless topped NBC's The Blacklist by 30% in Adults 18-49 (1.3/5 vs. 1.0/4).

· At 9pm, ABC's Modern Family won its half-hour for the 2nd week in row with Adults 18-49 (1.9/7), defeating Fox's Empire-led Star by 27% (1.5/6), CBS' Seal Team by 46% (1.3/5) and NBC's L&O: SVU by 46% (1.3/5).

· At 9:30pm, ABC's American Housewife tied Fox's Star for #1 in its slot with Adults 18-49 (1.4/5), while beating the second half-hours of CBS' Seal Team (1.2/5) and NBC's L&O: SVU (1.3/5).

· In the 10 o'clock hour, ABC's Designated Survivor (0.9/4) ran in line with the Live + Same Day Adult 18-49 deliveries of its drama competition and is projected to lead the hour once TV Playback is included. Live + 3 Day for the DS Season Premiere: Designated Survivor scored last Wednesday's biggest L+3 lift in Total Viewers with a +4.2 million spike (from 5.5 million to 9.7 million) and stands as the #1 percentage gainer for any series so far this season among Adults 18-49 with a +91% jump over its L+SD rating (from a 1.1/5 to a 2.1/8).
