Wednesday's ratings highlights:
" This just in.... Fox's Back to You, starring Kelsey Grammer and Patricia Heaton, premiered to 9.44 million total viewers, winning its 8 pm half hour (in key demos, as well). 'Til Death lost 18 percent of that lead-in audience, drawing 7.76 mil.
" CBS' Kid Nation opened its frontier doors to 9.07 million. But did it deserve all the controversy? Vote here. UPDATE: CBS will rebroadcast the Kid Nation opener Saturday at 8 pm.
" Last Comic Standing delivered its last laughs to 7.13 mil, besting Kitchen Nightmares (6.64 mil) along the way.
" Top Model returned to an audience of 5.15 mil, down just a hair from the previous cycle's opener. Gossip Girl had 3.65 mil talking, matching One Tree Hill's 2006 season premiere and faring a bit better than that Pussycat Doll search.
