Wednesday TV Ratings 8/10/22: Americas Got Talent Sinks in First Results Show, So You Think You Can Dance Rises for Finale, Big Brother Leads (UPDATED)

Ratings Analysis: NBC mainstay 'America's Got Talent' (0.54) crumbled for its first results show and went a full two-tenths below Tuesday night's performance (0.74). Despite the trouble in 'AGT' land, 'Password' (0.46, -0.02) shed just two-hundredths from Tuesday's premiere and retained a stellar 85% of its lead-in the 18-49 demographic. After this data point, it seems like 'Password' may be a much stronger show than it appeared to be on day one. The 'Chicago PD' rerun (0.25) that followed topped the 10PM hour. On CBS, 'Big Brother' (0.79, 0.00) tied last Wednesday's rating as 'The Challenge: USA' (0.42, +0.04) picked up a few ticks. The 10PM encore of 'SWAT' (0.20) was also a bit higher than usual. Fox's 'MasterChef' (0.35, -0.01) shaved off a hundredth at 8 and placed third in its timeslot. In the 9PM hour, struggling 'So You Think You Can Dance' (0.26, +0.03) grew by three-hundredths for its season finale. The CW's 'Mysteries Decoded' (0.03, 0.00) held even but 'Wellington Paranormal' (0.01, -0.01) lost a precious hundredth. The 'Wellington' original was bested by a repeat of itself (0.02) that aired directly after it. ABC had reruns of 'The Conners' (0.29), 'The Goldbergs' (0.18), 'Abbott Elementary' (0.18), 'Home Economics' (0.16), and 'Press Your Luck' (0.22).

Finals Update: 'Big Brother' (+0.1), 'Password' (+0.1), 'So You Think You Can Dance' (+0.1), and the repeat of 'Home Economics' (+0.1) adjusted up.
