Wednesday TV Ratings 6/2/21: MasterChef Returns with New Low, Press Your Luck and The $100,000 Pyramid Rise, Nancy Drew Ends Steady (UPDATED)

Preliminary Analysis: After close to two years off the air, Fox's 'MasterChef' (0.6) premiered to a new series low but was still strong enough to top all other programs. The Gordon Ramsay series was two-tenths behind its previous finale from 2019 (0.8), which feels like quite a win for a show that's been absent for as long as 'MasterChef' was. At 9, 'Crime Scene Kitchen' (0.4) shed two-tenths from its 'Masked Singer'-fueled premiere. With the reduced competition, ABC's game shows showed a bit more promise than the week prior. 'Press Your Luck' (0.5) inched up while 'The $100,000 Pyramid' (0.5) gained a tenth. 'A Million Little Things' (0.3) remained unchanged at 10. CBS's 'Kids Say' (0.4) held flat and led into a pair of 'SWAT' encores (0.3/0.3). NBC had a steady trio of 'One Chicago' reruns (0.3/0.3/0.3). The CW's 'Kung Fu' (0.1) tied its last outing as the 'Nancy Drew' finale (0.1) gained a few hundredths.

Finals Update: 'Crime Scene Kitchen' (0.5, +0.1) adjusted up.
