On a night when a rain-delayed baseball playoff game took Fox out of the running in the overnight ratings, ABC came away with a win for the night in the 18-49 demo, TVbytheNumbers.com reports.

On the strength of another big number for “Modern Family,” ABC averaged a 3.4 rating for the night in adults 18-49, slightly ahead of CBS (3.2) and way ahead of NBC (1.6). Numbers for Fox’s baseball coverage were late coming in.

CBS came out on top in total viewers with 11.3 million, ahead of ABC (9.1 million) and NBC (6.5 million).

CBS’s “Survivor” won the 8 p.m. hour with a 3.2 rating in 18-49, topping ABC’s “The Middle” (2.8) and “Suburgatory” (3.0). NBC’s “Up All Night,” which has been doing better than much of the NBC lineup, fell 13% from the previous week to a 2.0.

ABC’s combination of "Modern Family" (5.7) and "Happy Endings" (3.3) put the Alphabet Network on top in adults 18-49 for the 9 p.m. hour, with CBS’s "Criminal Minds" settling for a 3.7 and NBC’s bubble show "Harry’s Law" managing only a 1.2. CW’s "America’s Next Top Model" pulled a 0.8.

The 10 p.m. hour saw a tight battle, with ABC’s "Revenge" coming out on top with a 2.7 in adults 18-49, just ahead of CBS’s "CSI" (2.6), with NBC’s "Law & Order: SVU" in the ballpark with a 2.1.
