Spotted Ratings, Wednesday 2/8/12

  • At 8/7c, Fox's American Idol finally leveled off, while NBC comedies Whitney and Are You There, Chelsea? took a hit from the return of ABC's 8/7c comedies.
  • ABC's only big mover was Modern Family, on the upswing with no Idol in the 9/8c hour.
  • 10/9c saw a big CSI drop relative to Marg Helgenberger's last episode, and it appears a lot of those refugees ended up viewing Law and Order: SVU, which was still up double digits despite its two-tick drop in finals.
  • It was a soft day for news programs, with CBS' Person to Person revival coming in behind almost all of the 8/7c repeats/specials previously run in this timeslot between Survivors. Fortunately for CBS, the reality show is back next week. And Rock Center was actually above average in its Wednesday 9/8c debut, but... it's still a 1.1.

I didn't know "Person to Person" was on. I thought it was a one-on-one interview show, as implied by the title. It's not and it's awful.
