Wednesday 8/18/21 Fast Affiliate Ratings

Total Viewers:
NBC: 3.10 million, ABC: 2.64, CBS: 2.41, Fox: 1.89, CW: 461,000

Adults 18-49:
CBS: 0.4 rating/4 share, ABC, NBC and Fox: 0.4/ 3 each, CW: 0.1/ 1

In series premiere news was reality series “House Calls With Dr. Phil”, which was left at the Wednesday 9 p.m. ET starting gate with just 1.84 million viewers (#3) and a 0.3 rating/2 share (#4) in primetime. Lead-in “Big Brother” was considerably stronger at 3.64 million viewers (#2) and a 0.9/ 7 in the demo (#1 for the night) at 8 p.m. Maybe know-it-all Dr. Phil McGraw should stick to daytime syndication.

Airing out of “House Calls With Dr. Phil” was the season premiere of docuseries crime series “The FBI Declassified” (Viewers: #1, 1.76 million; A18-49: #2t, 0.2/ 2 at 10 p.m.), which did not benefit by the lack of lead-in support. Week two of ABC’s competing celebrity profile series “Superstar” was similarly lackluster at 1.73 million viewers (#2) and a 0.3/ 2 in the demo (#1). Earlier in the evening on the alphabet net were game shows “Press Your Luck” (Viewers: #3, 2.84 million; A18-49: #4, 0.4/ 3 at 8 p.m.) and “The $100,000 Pyramid” (Viewers: #1, 3.35 million; A18-49: #1, 0.5/ 3 at 9 p.m.).

On NBC, the second live results show for “America’s Got Talent” topped the night in total viewers, with 5.44 million at 8 p.m. But it trailed competing “Big Brother” on CBS in adults 18-49, with a 0.6/ 5. Airing out of “AGT” was recent non-scripted entry “Family Game Fight!” at 2.23 million viewers (#2) and a 0.4/ 3 in the demo (#2t).

Elsewhere, Fox featured just renewed “MasterChef” (Viewers: #4, 2.25 million; A18-49: #3, 0.5/ 4 at 8 p.m.) and game show “Beat Shazam” (Viewers: #4, 1.02 million; A18-49: #2t, 0.4/ 3 at 9 p.m.). And The CW capped off the evening with “Riverdale” (Viewers: #5, 526,000; A18-49: #5, 0.1/ 1 at 8 p.m.), which tends to resonate in social media, and drama “In The Dark” (Viewers: #5, 346,000; A18-49: #5, 0.1/ 0 at 9 p.m.).
