In Today's Issue Prime-Time Metered Market Wednesday Ratings: Easy Victory for NBC Ratings Box: What’s Hot/What’s Not On Tonight: Prime-Time Programming Options TV Tidbits: Notes of Interest TV Trivia: No Families in the Drama ____________________________________________________________ PRIME-TIME METERED MARKET WEDNESDAY RATINGS: Easy Victory for NBC Wednesday 6/29/11 NBC: 6.1/11, Fox: 4.3/ 7, CBS: 4.0/ 7, ABC: 2.8/ 5, CW: 0.6/ 1 Percent Change From the Year-Ago Evening (Wednesday 6/30/10): NBC: +16, ABC: + 8, CBS: + 3, Fox: -10, CW: -33 Yesterday’s Winners: The Voice (NBC), America’s Got Talent (NBC) Disappointing: Love in the Wild (NBC) Repeat Count: 54 percent of the lineup were encore telecasts.

In series-premiere news, however, NBC reality/competition Love in the Wild came tumbling down, with a second-place 4.0/ 7 at 10 p.m. Although the lead-in support from America’s Got Talent is likely to result in an adult 18-49 time period victory for Love in the Wild at 10 p.m., overnight retention out of the 9:30 p.m. portion of America’s Got Talent (8.6/14) was only 47 percent. (Under 50 percent is never a positive.) At Fox, another two-hour edition of So You Think You Can Dance came in at a 4.3/ 7 in the overnights from 8-10 p.m., which dipped by 10 percent year-to-year. CBS aired encore telecasts of Undercover Boss (#3: 2.8/ 5), which will return midseason on an unspecified day and time, Criminal Minds (#3: 4.1/ 7), and CSI , which moved into its new Wednesday 10 p.m
