TV Ratings 8/23/17: Marlon Steady, Salvation Holds Despite a Lower Big Brother (UPDATED)

It was a repeat-filled Wednesday, though that doesn't mean that there wasn't anything on. CBS, Fox and NBC all had two hours of originals, while ABC and The CW were entirely in repeats. As for CBS, the Tiffany saw a two tenth decline from their only show worth the airtime this Summer, Big Brother. At 9, Salvation was steady with its most recent post-BB episode, despite having a smaller BB. The 10 PM Criminal Minds repeat tied last week's Salvation original. NBC won the night with another impressive performance from AGT, which was pretty steady at 2.0, down a tenth. Marlon held up very well, down just a tenth at 9 (though there was some AGT overrun), and steady at 9:30. The SVU repeat at 10 also looked good, up to 0.7. Fox saw a huge improvement by swapping out the Flop Word with a second hour of MasterChef. The two hour average for MasterChef was 1.1. The CW had some potentially inflated repeats that drew much larger numbers than usual, with a 0.4 for Supernatural. Even if Supernatural adjusts down a tenth, it will still be up from last week. ABC has some weak 0.5 repeats at 8 followed by two solid hours of 0.6s.

Finals Update: Big Brother (+0.1) adjusted up. The 9PM Marlon (-0.1), Salvation (-0.1), and repeats of SVU (-0.1), Speechless (-0.1), Arrow (-0.2), and Supernatural (-0.2) adjusted down.
