NEW YORK (AP) - An evening of delayed premieres for the networks last week ended with a bang, a solid thump and a fizzle.

ABC, NBC and the CW all debuted new dramas last Wednesday to varied receptions. The grand prize went to the CW network and its fantasy series “Arrow,” about a character who is a millionaire playboy by day and a vigilante at night. It was the network’s most-watched program since 2009.

ABC’s “Nashville” was one of the year’s best-reviewed new shows, and the nearly 9 million people who sampled its first episode made it the network’s third most-watched drama. NBC’s “Chicago Fire” was a disappointment in the same time slot.

NBC continued its best start in a decade in the ratings. CBS won the week.
