For its 4th straight broadcast this season, ABC's MODERN FAMILY registered as Wednesday's No. 1 TV show in Total Viewers and Adults 18-49, outdelivering Fox's World Series telecast.

"The Middle" (8:00-8:30 p.m.)
At 8:00 p.m., ABC's "The Middle" ran in a near-tie with CBS' "Survivor" as the No. 1 series in the half-hour in Adults 18-49 (2.5/8 vs. 2.6/8 - pacing within 1-tenth of a rating and tied in audience share).  In addition the ABC comedy once again beat out "Survivor" in Adults 18-34, Men 18-34 and Women 18-34, while ranking No. 1 straight out over the Fall Classic with Women 18-49. 

Despite the World Series competition, "The Middle" built its overall audience (+2% - 8.6 million vs. 8.4 million) for the 3rd straight week and held 100% of its Adult 18-49 number, hitting best-since-premiere numbers.  In addition the ABC family comedy shot up to season highs in Teens 12-17 and Kids 2-11, posting the series' top numbers the beginning of January  - since 1/4/12.

"The Neighbors" (8:30-9:00 p.m.)
At 8:30 p.m., ABC's "The Neighbors" increased its dominance over its freshman comedy competition, beating NBC's "Guys with Kids" by a best-yet 3.1 million viewers (6.9 million vs. 3.8 million) and by 54% in Adults 18-49 (2.0/6 vs. 1.3/4). 

Like its lead-in, "The Neighbors" grew its overall audience for the 3rd straight week (+6%) to a new time-period high, while also gaining 5% in Adults 18-49 to equal its top rating in the slot.  The ABC family comedy hit a series high for the 2nd straight week with Kids 2-11 and marked a new time-period high with Teens 12-17.
