Modern Family

ABC's Wednesday lineup came back after making way for the 45th annual CMA Awards last week. All its shows declined from their previous outings, according to Nielsen overnight figures. Modern Family, while reaching its usual night-leading numbers in viewership (12.88 million) and demo rating (5.5), declined to a season low in the industry-standard 18-to-49 crowd. NBC's Harry's Law also hit a season-low in the demo (1.1). And without the CMAs as competition, CBS' lineup rose.
