Wednesday TV Ratings 7/15/20: United We Fall Starts On Top, Game On! and Ultimate Tag Hit New Lows (UPDATED)

Note: Titles highlighted in BLUE are original broadcasts. 

Preliminary Anaylsis: After weeks of comedy reruns and Disney films populating the Wednesday night roster, ABC decided to return to the scripted original game by broadcasting the 1-hour premiere of new sitcom 'United We Fall' (0.6/0.5). It was a respectable start by summer standards and 'Fall' also narrowly registered as the night's top program. Despite that, it has very little room to drop before it goes from solid to underwhelming. At 10, 'Agents of SHIELD' (0.3) held steady once more. In-between the two originals were repeats of 'The Conners' (0.4) and 'American Housewife' (0.3).

CBS's 'Tough as Nails' (0.5) lost a tenth in week 2 but the real slippage came with the return of 'Game On!' (0.3) in a new timeslot. Not only did 'Game On!' lose three-tenths and fall to a new series low but it also lost two-tenths from an already tepid lead-in. An even uglier 'SEAL Team' repeat (0.2) ended their evening. Similar to 'Game On!', Fox's 'Ultimate Tag' (0.3) crashed to a new low and lost to its 'MasterChef' repeat lead-in (0.4) for the first time. 'Tag' had posted five-straight 0.5s before this rotten data point. NBC had 0.4s across the board with a trio of 'One Chicago' encores. The CW's 'The 100' (0.2) and 'Bulletproof' (0.1) were frozen at last week's numbers.

FINALS UPDATE: 'Tough as Nails' (0.4, -0.1) adjusted down, now down two-tenths from last week's premiere.
