Fox originals top Wednesday

'X Factor' steady, 'Daughter' rises vs. repeats

Opposite mostly repeats on the competition Wednesday night, Fox’s music talent competition ”The X Factor” and new comedy ”I Hate My Teenage Daughter” prevailed among young adults, with the latter rising week to week.

According to preliminary national estimates from Nielsen, ”The X Factor” averaged a 3.3 rating/10 share in adults 18-49 and 11.1 million viewers overall from 8 to 9:30 p.m. , merely on par with last week even though it didn’t face CBS’ ”Survivor” this time; the show’s finale airs tonight. And at 9:30, ”I Hate My Teenage Daughter” (first-place 2.1/6 in 18-49, 6.0 million viewers overall) was up some from last week when it faced an original ”Criminal Minds” on CBS and a Barbara Walters special on ABC.

As often happens at times of repeats for the Big Four, Univision rated well with its original telenovelas. The Spanish-language network, led by ”La Fuerza del Destino (The Strength of Destiny)” (1.9/5 in 18-49, 4.5 million viewers overall), ran second for the night in 18-49.

ABC aired repeats of comedies ”The Middle” (1.4/5 in 18-49, 5.4 million viewers overall), ”Suburgatory” (1.5/5 in 18-49, 4.8 million viewers overall), ”Modern Family” (2.2/6 in 18-49, 6.4 million viewers overall) and ”Happy Endings” (1.4/4 in 18-49, 3.9 million viewers overall), followed by the soap ”Revenge” (0.9/3 in 18-49, 3.3 million viewers overall), which doesn’t figure to repeat well. ”Modern Family” was the night’s No. 1 scripted show among the 18-49 crowd.

At CBS, its annual adoption special ”A Home for the Holidays” (0.8/2 in 18-49, 4.2 million viewers overall) was up a bit year to year, and was followed by repeats of ”Criminal Minds” (1.5/4 in 18-49, 6.8 million viewers overall) and ”CSI” (1.6/4 in 18-49, 7.3 million viewers overall); ”CSI” led the broadcasters in 18-49, though it may have been topped by FX’s ”American Horror Story,” which wrapped its season Wednesday.

NBC’s four-night gameshow event ”Who’s Still Standing” (1.7/5 in 18-49, 5.7 million viewers overall) was down from Tuesday, placing second to ”X Factor” in the 8 o’clock hour but performing much better than the repeat comedies the net aired in the timeslot last week. Finishing out the night were the low-rated repeat special ”A Michael Buble Christmas” (1.0/3 in 18-49, 4.4 million viewers overall) and an encore of ”Law and Order: SVU” (1.0/3 in 18-49, 4.0 million viewers overall).

Preliminary 18-49 averages for the night: Fox, 3.0/9; Univision, 1.5/4; ABC, 1.4/4; CBS, 1.3/4; NBC, 1.2/4; CW, 0.3/1.

In total viewers: Fox, 9.8 million; CBS, 6.1 million; NBC, 4.7 million; ABC, 4.5 million; Univision, 3.6 million; CW, 0.8 million.
