Ratings Breakdown:
NBC and Fox continue to own the bragging rights to Wednesday. The Peacock net’s trio of Chicago-set dramas – “Chicago Med” (#1 for the night: 5.6 rating/10 share), “Chicago Fire” (5.5/ 9 at 9 p.m.) and “Chicago PD” (5.0/10 at 10 p.m.) – fluctuated by only six-tenths of a household rating point, winning five of the six half-hours in the household overnights. And Fox breakout “The Masked Singer” scored a healthy 5.4/10 at 9 p.m., building by a hefty 116 percent from “Gordon Ramsay’s 48 Hours to Hell and Back” (2.5/ 4) in the 8 p.m. hour.

In season finale news, “Big Brother” Celebrity Edition” averaged a modest 2.7/ 5 in the household overnights from 9-11 p.m., which was 31 percent below lead-in “The World’s Best” (#2: 3.9/ 7 from 8-9 p.m.). One year earlier, “Big Brother: Celebrity Edition” was notably stronger at a 3.6/ 6 in the 8 p.m. hour. Comparably, that put’s “The World’s Best” on par with “Big Brother.”

Elsewhere, ABC featured original and repeat installments of its two-hour Wednesday sitcom block into 10 p.m. time period filler “The Match Game” (#3: 1.9/ 4). And The CW was in repeats.
