Fast National ratings for Wednesday, April 2, 2014.
"Survivor: Cagayan" and "Criminal Minds" both beat "American Idol" in key measures and helped CBS win Wednesday night both overall and among young viewers.
"Idol" was actually flat week-to-week in Fast Nationals, while "Survivor" was down a hair, but last week was the first time the "Survivor" margin-of-victory from Fast Nationals held up over "Idol" in Finals. Given the history of tightening in Finals, there's a strong possibility FOX could end up tied for the night in the key demo, but we'll have to wait and see.
For the most part it was a sluggish Wednesday, though there were small gains for "Suburgatory," "Nashville," "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit" and "Chicago PD," while "Modern Family," "Mixology," "Arrow" and "The 100" were among the shows in decline.
