Wednesday TV Ratings 12/29/21: Repeat of The Price Is Right Celebrates 50 Years Dominates Encore-Filled Night, Wonder Years Repeat Marathon Average (UPDATED)


Ratings Analysis: On a night with little worth noting, CBS's encore of 'The Price Is Right Celebrates 50 Years' (0.67) was the sole, solid performer in a desolate wasteland of a low-rated reruns. Despite that, a good portion of that audience drifted away by the time the 10pm repeat of 'SWAT' (0.29) arrived. NBC had passable reruns of 'Chicago Med' (0.26), 'Chicago Fire' (0.28), and 'Chicago PD' (0.28) that barely edged out the Fox broadcast of 'Gordon Ramsay's Road Trip' (0.24). Over on ABC, the marathon of 'The Wonder Years' (0.34/0.27/0.24/0.21/0.19/0.18) was almost indistinguishable from Tuesday's 'Black-ish' showcase. The only difference was that 'Wonder Years' consistently declined as the evening progressed while 'Black-ish' managed to rise at a few intervals. The CW was stronger than usual thanks to an encore of 'Dogs of the Year 2021' (0.10) but dipped back down to usual levels with 'World's Funniest Animals' (0.06/0.05). 

Finals Update: Repeats of 'The Price is Right Celebrates 50 Years' (+0.1), 'Chicago Med' (+0.1), 'The Wonder Years' at 8:30 (+0.1), and 'Chicago PD' (+0.1) adjusted up.
