Another day, another low premiere for ABC.

Mixology bowed Wednesday to 5.2 million viewers and a 1.8 in the adults 18-to-49 demographic, making it the lowest-rated premiere following Modern Family  ever. It also posted the worst retention rate (58 percent) out of Modern Family (8.6 million, 3.1) since The Neighbors.

ABC opened the night with The Middle (7.1 million, 1.8) and Suburgatory (5.1 million, 1.5), which hit season and series lows, respectively. Nashville (4.7 million, 1.2) dipped to a series low.
