    Wednesday Primetime Results:

    NBC wins Wednesday night among the Big 4 in every key measure, as debuts of “American Ninja Warrior” and “The Night Shift” sweep six of six half-hours among the Big 4 in adults 18-49.

    The season premiere of “American Ninja Warrior” (1.7/7 in 18-49, 6.3 million viewers overall from 8-10 p.m. ET):

    · Is the #1 show of the night on the Big 4 networks in every key measure (adults, men and women 18-34, 18-49 and 25-54, plus total viewers).

    · Despite this summer’s move to Wednesday for its first two weeks, retains 94% of last summer’s premiere in 18-49 (1.7 vs. 1.8 from 8-10:01 p.m. on Monday, May 25, 2015) and grows +7% in total viewers (6.268 million vs. 5.865 million).

    · It’s the most-watched “Ninja” season premiere ever.

    The third season debut of “The Night Shift” (1.1/4 in 18-49, 4.9 million viewers overall from 10-11 p.m. ET):

    · Wins the time period among ABC, CBS and NBC in every key category.

    · Ties as the #2 telecast of the night on the Big 4 networks in 18-49, with Fox’s debut of “MasterChef” (1.1) and behind only “Ninja.”

    · Finishes within 8% of where the show left off with its second-season finale (1.1 vs. 1.2 on Monday, May 18, 2015, with a “Voice” lead-in) and within 6% of last year’s finale in total viewers (4.893 million vs. 5.204 million).
