     January 31, 2013


Wednesday evening’s TV ratings are in.  Here’s a brief look at the highlights:

  • FX’s new drama series The Americans debuted strong with 4.7 million combined viewers and 3.22 million total viewers for its premiere broadcast, topping the premieres of American Horror Story and Sons of Anarchy.  The network is currently on a roll with original programming, and The Americans looks to be a fine addition to the lineup.
  • ABC’s comedy The Neighbors took a drop, scoring a 1.6 rating and 5.25 million viewers which is down four tenths from last week’s 2.0 rating.
  • Also down on ABC was Suburgatory, suffering from a lack of a new Modern Family as its lead-in.  The episode hit a 1.8 rating and 4.87, dropping four tenths from last week’s 2.2 rating.

Hit the jump for the full ratings report for Wednesday, January 30th, including Arrow, Supernatural, Whitney, Chicago Fire, and more.
