Wednesday TV Ratings 2/16/22: Winter Olympics Hit New Low, The Amazing Race Drops, The Chase Ends Up (UPDATED)


Ratings Analysis: Following a few days of stability, the '2022 Winter Olympics' (1.18, -0.36) collapsed on NBC, with the ceremony crashing to its weakest performance on record. On ABC, the 'Jeopardy! National College Championship' (0.52, +0.03) recovered a bit and led into the season finale of 'The Chase' (0.37/0.31). The latter was up by a healthy amount from last week (0.34/0.27) in both hours. CBS's 'Celebrity Big Brother' (0.54, +0.13) was over a tenth higher than Monday night's episode but six-hundredths lower than the previous Wednesday (0.60). 'The Amazing Race' (0.47, -0.08) declined in the 9PM hour and was followed by an 'NCIS' encore (0.23). 'I Can See Your Voice' (0.36) was flat on Fox, but 'Next Level Chef' (0.40, -0.02) dealt with some minor slippage. The CW's rerun of 'Legends of Tomorrow' (0.09) was three-hundredths higher than last week's encore (0.06) while the 9PM repeat of 'Batwoman' (0.04) tied its week-ago delivery. 

Finals Update: The '2022 Winter Olympics' (+0.1), 'The Chase' at 9 PM (+0.1), 'The Amazing Race' (+0.1), and 'I Can See Your Voice' (+0.1) adjusted up.
