Wednesday TV Ratings 7/28/21: Big Brother and Love Island Rise, Summer Olympics Tie Low, Pyramid and Match Game Slip (UPDATED)

Preliminary Analysis: The 'Tokyo Summer Olympics' (2.7) lost five-tenths from Tuesday's broadcast on NBC and fell below a 3.0 rating for the first time in a few days. CBS was on the rise as both 'Big Brother' (0.9) and 'Love Island' (0.5) gained a tenth, with 'Island' eyeing a season high. A 'SWAT' rerun (0.2) rounded out their night. In contrast, ABC saw 'The $100,000 Pyramid' (0.4) lose two-tenths and 'Match Game' (0.3) shed one for its season finale. 'Press Your Luck' (0.4) was in repeat-mode in the 8pm slot. Fox offered up a pair of 'MasterChef' encores (0.3/0.2) that handily outrated The CW's  reruns of 'World's Funniest Animals' (0.1/0.1) and 'Whose Line Is It Anyway?' (0.1/0.1). 

Finals Update: 2020 Tokyo Summer Olympics (+0.1), Big Brother (+0.1) and the repeat of Press Your Luck (+0.1) adjusted up.
