Wednesday TV Ratings 8/11/21: Superstar Has a Modest Start, Family Game Fight! Solid Behind Weaker America’s Got Talent, Big Brother and MasterChef Down (UPDATED)

Preliminary Analysis: CBS's 'Big Brother' (0.9) tied last Wednesday's rating and was a good three-tenths above its nearest competitor. 'Love Island' (0.4) and a 'SWAT' rerun (0.2) were on-par with their week-ago showings as well. On NBC, 'Family Game Fight!' (0.5) had a fairly solid timeslot debut, down just two-tenths from its 'Olympics'-fueled premiere. Earlier in the evening, the first Wednesday installment of 'America's Got Talent' (0.6) tied its Tuesday low. ABC's Whitney Houston documentary series 'Superstar' (0.3) had a lackluster start in the 10pm hour but was in-line with the 'Match Game' finale from three weeks ago. 'Press Your Luck' (0.4) lost a few hundredths while 'The $100,000 Pyramid' (0.5) gained a tenth at 9. Fox's 'MasterChef' (0.4) inched down and led into reruns of 'HouseBroken' (0.2) and 'Duncanville' (0.2). The CW's 'Riverdale' (0.1) was steady for its first episode since March. 'In the Dark' (0.0) ticked down into obscurity in the 9pm timeslot. 

Finals Update: MasterChef (+0.1), Press Your Luck (+0.1), Superstar (+0.1) and In the Dark (+0.1) adjusted up.
