Wednesday TV Ratings 7/13/22: MasterChef Up After Week Off, Big Brother and The Challenge USA Slip (UPDATED)

Ratings Analysis: CBS's 'Big Brother' (0.66, -0.15) suffered quite a blow in week two when compared to last Wednesday's return (0.81) while newbie 'The Challenge: USA' (0.36, -0.05) had a much softer decline. A rerun of 'SWAT' (0.16) that followed found itself in last place in the 10PM hour. After taking a break last week, Fox was up across the board with 'MasterChef' (0.44, +0.03) and 'So You Think You Can Dance' (0.33, +0.05). ABC's reruns of 'Shark Beach with Chris Hemsworth' (0.28) and 'Shark Tank' (0.29/0.26) were modest at best. NBC went even lower than the alphabet network with encores of 'Chicago Med' (0.24), 'Fire' (0.23), and 'PD' (0.24). 'Mysteries Decoded' (0.05, +0.01), 'Wellington Paranormal' (0.04, +0.01), and the rerun of 'Wellington' (0.03) all grew by a hundredth on the CW.

Finals Update: 'Big Brother' (+0.1) and 'The Challenge: USA' (+0.1) adjusted up, as did repeats of 'Shark Beach' (+0.1) and 'Shark Tank' at 10 PM (+0.1).
