TV Ratings 8/2/17: Big Brother Ticks Up, Salvation Sinks Very Low (UPDATED)

Wednesday night saw lots of upticks and downticks in the ratings, with only a few shows steady week-to-week. Starting with CBS, which got full attention in our headline, Big Brother ticked up to a 1.9. It's still failing to hit a 2.0, but it has another chance tonight, when it hopefully will. That 1.9 was wasted on Salvation, which ticked down to a 0.5 at 9. But it gets worse. At 10, Salvation ticked down to a 0.4, lower than all three repeats scheduled against it. It make CBS' rough Summer even worse, as Salvation was previously the only non-BB Summer show on the Eye to avoid a 0.5. NBC had a Got Talent recap special at 8, which was a tenth higher than Forever yOung's finale last week. That helped the Carmichael Show and both repeats tick up a tenth, as well. Fox continued to have a successful 8 PM with MasterChef. The cooking competition series has had a very impressive season, holding its own against Big Brother. The same can not be said for The F Word, which stayed steady at its 0.6. The CW (0.2/0.2) was in repeats, and the were steady with last week. ABC had a particularly strong Modern Family repeat and saw an uptick at 8 for the Goldbergs.

Finals Update: The SVU repeat (+0.1) and MasterChef (+0.1) adjusted up. The Arrow repeat (-0.1) adjusted down.
