Wednesday Final Nationals: Modest Start to ‘Star’ on Fox

CBS and Fox split victory on this Wednesday evening. CBS led in total viewers (8.37 million) with the night’s most-watched telecast — the 132-minute season finale of “Survivor: Millennials vs. Gen X”. Its half-hour breakdowns in total viewers (adults 18-34, adults 18-49 and adults 25-54 rating/share), were as follows:

8:00 9.342 million (1.2/6, 2.0/7, 2.8/9)

8:30 9.079 million (1.2/5, 1.9/7, 2.7/8)

9:00 9.316 million (1.2/5, 2.0/7, 2.8/8)

9:30 9.031 million (1.1/5, 1.9/7, 2.8/8)

10:00 8.071 million (1.0/5, 1.7/6, 2.4/7)

10:12 (Reunion) 7.083 million (0.9/4, 1.5/6, 2.2/7)

10:30 (Reunion) 5.985 million (0.7/3, 1.2/5, 1.7/6)

Fox led in all key demos with “Empire” at an earlier time slot leading into the series premiere of Lee Daniels’ new music drama “Star.”

The former Fox show rebounded a bit in the ratings from its previous episode; the latter show — often promoted for the past month — drew a modest-sized audience of 6.71 million viewers. “Empire” (2.7 rating) and “Star” (2.2) were the night’s top two telecasts in adults 18-49.
