CBS’ Wednesday crime dramas failed to get beaned by Fox’s World Series coverage.

Though Survivor — with 9.4 million total viewers and a 2.3 rating — opened the night with declines of 7 and 12 percent as Game 1 was just getting underway, Criminal Minds (11.5 mil/2.7) held steady in the demo while scoring its largest audience since March 20. Similarly, CSI‘s 300th episode (10.4 mil/2.1) copped its largest audience since April 10 and inched up a tenth in the demo.

(Based on preliminary data — 14.5 million viewers and a 4.1 from 8 to 10 pm — Fox’s World Series coverage appears to be up double digits versus last year’s Giants/Tigers Game 1.)

NBC’s dramas, however, took a hit. After Revolution delivered a 5.0/1.4 (dipping in audience but steady in the demo), SVU’s Weiner riff (5.5 mil/1.4) sagged more than 20 percent. Ironside‘s final episode capped the night with 3.9 mil and a 0.8, down two tenths.

Over on ABC, The Middle (8.2 mil/2.1) ticked down a tenth, Back in the Game (6.2 mil/1.7) dipped two tenths and Modern Family (10.3 mil/3.8) dropped three tenths, but Super Fun Night (6 mil/2.2) was up from last week’s 2.1 — if the numbers hold, marking its first week-to-week gain since premiering. Nashville was steady with 5.5 mil/1.6.

The CW’s Arrow (2.8 mil/0.9) and The Tomorrow People (1.9 mil/0.6) each dropped some 10 percent in total audience and two tenths in the demo.
