Ratings: Modern Family Dominates, SVU Hits a High, Stars in Danger Makes No Splash

Fox’s Stars in Danger is probably in no danger of coming back. Stars in Danger hit shallow water. Stars in Danger… well, it did not draw many lookie-loos on Wednesday night, delivering just 3.37 million total viewers while netting a 1.3 demo rating.

That landed the special in fourth place each hour, besting only CW repeats.

ABC’s Modern Family dominated the night with 12 million viewers and a 4.7 rating (up 12 percent from its last fresh outing). Similarly, ABC’s other sitcoms all rose in the demo from season-low previous outings: The Middle (8.5 mil/2.4, up 14 percent); The Neighbors (6.63 mil/2.0, up 25 percent); and Suburgatory (7 mil/2.7, up 23 percent).

A rousing, super-sudsy Nashville capped the Alphabet net’s night with 5.8 mil and a 2.0 rating, ticking up a tenth yet placing third in the hour. (Scarlett, what got into you?! I like.)

Over on NBC, Whitney (4.2 mil/1.4) and Guys With Kids (4 mil/1.3) both dropped more than 20 percent week-to-week, but Law & Order: SVU copped its largest audience of the season (8.3 mil) while dipping 5 percent in the demo (to a 2.1). Chicago Fire (8 mil/2.2) slipped 8 percent.

CBS’ I Get That a Lot (7.76 mil/2.0) was down 13 percent from its last outing, while the People’s Choice Awards (9.6 mil/2.6) gained some viewers and rose a tenth in the demo versus 2011.
