Wednesday night brings more four more series premieres (Undercovers, Better With You, The Whole Truth, The Defenders), and six returning show season premieres (Law & Order: SVU, The Middle, Modern Family, Cougar Town, Criminal Minds, Hell’s Kitchen)

Everybody’s guesses are now a bit more informed since we’ve seen the Monday premiere ratings already (and we’ll see the Tuesday numbers soon), not that will necessarily make it any more accurate…

My guesses (adults 18-49 ratings):

  • The Middle: 2.7
  • Undercovers: 2.3
  • Hell’s Kitchen: 2.5
  • Better With You: 2.6
  • Modern Family: 4.5
  • Criminal Minds: 4.0
  • Law & Order: SVU 2.7
  • Cougar Town: 2.9
  • The Defenders: 3.0
  • The Whole Truth: 2.7

Programming notes:  because of the two-hour Law & Order: SVU premiere, Law & Order: LA doesn’t premiere until next Wednesday.  You can check out other premiere dates here.

Premiere Wednesday 2009 (September 23, 2009) (note not all shows were premires)

Check out that 3.0 for Eastwick. Two episodes later it did a 1.8 and its fate was sealed.
