In season-premiere news was Fox’s veteran “Masterchef”, which like basically every series on broadcast television is a shell of its former self. It averaged 2.43 million viewers (#4) and a 0.6 rating/4 share in adults 18-49 (#1) in the Wednesday 8 p.m. ET hour. That led into newbie “Crime Scene Kitchen” at 1.86 million viewers (#4) and a 0.4/ 3 in the demo (#2) at 9 p.m.

In the game show department was ABC’s “Press Your Luck” (Viewers: #1, 3.34 million; A18-49: #2, 0.5/ 4) and “The $100,000 Pyramid” (Viewers: #1, 3.53 million; A18-49: #1, 0.5/ 3) from 8-10 p.m. They led into drama “A Million Little Things” at a modest 2.38 million viewers (#2) and a 0.3/ 2 in adults 18-49 (#1t) at 10 p.m.

In season finale results, “Nancy Drew” on The CW concluded the season with a paltry 4.82 million viewers and a 0.1/ 0 in adults 18-49 at 9 p.m. Yet, it snagged a season renewal and still has a potential spin-off series in the works. Earlier on the The CW was freshman “Kung Fu”, which returns in 2021-22 in midseason, with 829,000 viewers (#5) and a 0.1/ 1 in the demo at 8 p.m.

The only other original telecast last night was “Kids Say the Darndest Things” on CBS at 2.93 million viewers (#3) and a 0.4/ 3 in adults 18-49 (#3) at 8 p.m.
