Ratings: 'Criminal Minds' wins Wednesday, 'Modern Family' growing

CBS won the Wednesday ratings war, topping each hour with The New Adventures of Old Christine, Criminal Minds (the evening’s No. 1 program), and CSI: NY, according to overnight Nielsen numbers. ABC’s Modern Family, while still short of its premiere numbers, was up 9 percent in total viewers and 13 percent in Adults 18-49 from last week. Its lead-out, Cougar Town, held strong week-to-week, as did Fox’s Glee.
