modern family dec 11 13 ratings TV ratings: 'Modern Family' grows and leads Wednesday, 'Sing Off' does OKFast National ratings for Wednesday, Dec. 11, 2013

The final “Modern Family” episode of the fall posted the show’s best ratings in four weeks, leading the night in adults 18-49 by a good-sized margin. It didn’t take the total-viewer crown, though, as “Criminal Minds” brought in the biggest overall audience, although it was down from a week ago.

Also Tuesday, night two of “The Sing-Off” put up decent ratings without a “Voice” lead-in, topping “The X Factor” from 8 to 10 p.m. “Arrow” was steady in viewers and adults 18-49 and posted the show’s best ratings ever among young men.

CBS led all three hours of primetime in viewers, averaging 10.3 million and a 6.4 rating/10 share in households. ABC (6.75 million, 4.4/7) came in second. NBC (5.7 million, 3.6/6) beat out FOX (4.9 million, 3.1/5) for third. The CW came in at 2.2 million viewers and a 1.4/2.

CBS also scored an demographic win, earning a 2.2 rating in adults 18-49 to beat ABC’s 1.9. NBC took third with a 1.7, followed by FOX, 1.4, and The CW, 0.8.
