CBS topped this atypical Wednesday, which did not feature NBC’s Chicago-set drama trio. “Survivor,” which concludes for the season next week, topped the night with a 5.0 rating/9 share in the 8 p.m. hour. Next on the Eye net were dramas “SEAL Team” (#1: 4.2/ 7) and “Criminal Minds” (#1: 3.7/ 6) from 9-11 p.m. Chances are this is the final season of “Criminal Minds.”

On NBC, the network populated the evening with “Ellen’s Game of Games” (#2: 3.8/ 7 at 8 p.m.), “Big Little Liars” (#3: 3.4/ 6 at 9 p.m.) and an encore telecast of holiday special “A Legendary Christmas With John and Chrissy” (#3: 1.7/ 3 at 10 p.m.).

Elsewhere, ABC had a typical evening care of sitcoms “The Goldbergs” (#3: 3.7/ 7), “American Housewife” (#3: 3.3/ 6), “Modern Family” (#1: 4.3/ 7) and “Single Parents” (#3: 2.7/ 5), and drama “A Million Little Things” (#2: 2.8/ 5). The CW, meanwhile, featured “Riverdale” (#5: 1.0/ 2 at 8 p.m.) and “All American” (#5: 0.5/ 1 at 9 p.m.). And Fox was in repeats.
