Wednesday TV Ratings 9/1/21: Press Your Luck and Pyramid Steady, MasterChef, Big Brother, AGT and House Calls with Dr. Phil Slip (UPDATED)

Ratings Analysis: Despite its 'Big Brother' lead-in (0.95) holding steady, 'House Calls with Dr. Phil' (0.21) found itself falling into miserable territory on CBS. '48 Hours' (0.22) was even able to slightly grow from 'Phil', showing just how poor of a performer 'House Calls' is. On NBC, 'America's Got Talent' (0.65) and 'Family Game Fight!' (0.39) were flat at the same rounded rating they posted the week prior. A rerun of 'Chicago Fire' (0.27) nearly took the #1 spot in the 10pm hour. 'Press Your Luck' (0.55) and The $100,000 Pyramid' (0.51) rose by eight and five hundredths respectively on ABC. At 10, a Richard Pryor edition of 'Superstar' (0.28) was six-hundredths below last week's John Ritter episode. Fox's 'MasterChef' (0.53) inched down for a 2-hour installment while 'Riverdale' (0.06) and 'In the Dark' (0.07) were more-or-less even on the CW, with 'Dark' actually building from its lead-in.  

Finals Update: 'Big Brother' (+0.1), 'America's Got Talent' (+0.1), and 'Press Your Luck' (+0.1) adjusted up.
