Ratings Analysis: CBS's 'Big Brother' (0.95) found itself about half of a tenth higher than the previous Wednesday but fell short of its robust Sunday rating (1.06). 'House Calls with Dr. Phil' (0.28) gained just a single hundredth in week 2 and barely beat out a 10pm edition of '48 Hours' (0.26). On ABC, 'Press Your Luck' (0.47) rose by a tenth while 'The $100,000 Pyramid' (0.46) held even. 'Superstar' (0.34) improved by a few hundredths at 10, this time focusing on late comedian John Ritter. NBC experienced relative stability with 'America's Got Talent' (0.68), 'Family Game Fight!' (0.41), and a rerun of 'Chicago Med' (0.26). Fox's 'MasterChef' (0.57) picked up a tenth for a special two-hour episode, putting the Gordon Ramsay series at the top of its hour. 'Riverdale' (0.07) and 'In the Dark' (0.05) continued to fade away on the CW.

Finals Update: 'Big Brother' (+0.1), 'America's Got Talent' (+0.1), 'Press Your Luck' (+0.1), 'The $100,000 Pyramid' (+0.1), 'In the Dark' (+0.1), and the repeat of 'Chicago Med' (+0.1) adjusted up.
