TV Ratings: Steady 'Big Brother' Holds Onto Wednesday Night
A special America's Got Talent anniversary episode brought a 1.6 rating with adults 18-49 on NBC. Joined by a steady Last Comic Standing (1.4 adults), NBC led the night in the key demo.
Wednesday's highest-rated series was Big Brother. The CBS show, even with last week, took a 1.8 rating among adults 18-49. Neighbor Extant (0.7 adults) was steady, although it pulled less than half of its lead-in's haul.
MasterChef took a steady 1.4 rating in the key demo on Fox. And, in its second week, Home Free pulled an even 0.9 rating — not exactly a robust showing, but at least it's in better shape than Knock Knock Live.
ABC's lone original for the night was an even outing of Celebrity Wife Swap (0.8 adults).
