The debut of "Super Fun Night" scored pretty good ratings for ABC Wednesday, holding onto most of the lead-in audience from "Modern Family," which was even with last week's premiere. 

The news wasn't as good for the night's other series debut: NBC's "Ironside" premiered below last year's "Chicago Fire" debut in adults 18-49 (though slightly ahead in total viewers) and finished last in its hour.

Also Wednesday, "Survivor: Blood vs. Water" and "CSI" ticked up for CBS. ABC's "Nashville" and FOX's "X Factor" were both pretty steady. NBC's "Revolution" and "Law & Order: SVU" dipped from their premieres a week ago.

CBS led the night overall with 10.2 million viewers and a 6.4 rating/10 share in households. FOX (7.8 million, 4.8/8) edged ABC (7.6 million, 4.8/8) for second. NBC came in fourth with 6.3 million viewers and a 4.1/7. The CW (1.45 million, 0.9/1) brought up the rear.

ABC and CBS tied for the lead among adults 18-49 at 2.5. FOX was right behind with a 2.4. NBC posted a 1.6 and The CW a 0.5.
