Wednesday TV Ratings 6/21/23: LA Fire & Rescue Has OK Premiere, The Wonder Years Rises, MasterChef Stays in the Lead (UPDATED)

Ratings Analysis: NBC docuseries 'LA Fire & Rescue' (0.29) looked fairly healthy on premiere night and placed third overall in the 8 p.m. timeslot. Though this is a decent start, how it holds up in week two will provide a clearer picture of the program's strength. Reruns of 'Chicago Fire' (0.22) and 'Chicago PD' (0.21) followed the launch of 'Fire & Rescue'. ABC's 'The Wonder Years' (0.25, +0.07) improved significantly from last week's 1-hour return (0.22/0.18), even as 'Judge Steve Harvey' (0.32, -0.01) dipped in the 8 o'clock hour. Later in the night, the alphabet network aired repeats of 'Abbott Elementary' (0.20) and 'The $100,000 Pyramid' (0.20). 'MasterChef' (0.42, 0.00) held even on Fox and remained in the lead. 'Gordon Ramsay's Food Stars' (0.27, +0.01) grew by a hundredth at 9. CBS had encores of 'Ghosts' (0.28/0.23), 'The Price Is Right At Night' (0.29), and 'CSI: Vegas' (0.16). On the CW, 'Nancy Drew' (0.03, -0.03) and 'Riverdale' (0.03, -0.03) both collapsed. 

Finals Update: All shows held their preliminary ratings.
