Wednesday TV Ratings 6/7/23: NBA Finals Slip in Game Three, MasterChef Dips, Nancy Drew Jumps (UPDATED)

Ratings Analysis: Game three of the '2023 NBA Finals' (3.43, -0.30) dealt with a pretty steep decline in the Adults 18-49 demographic, going a full three-tenths below the second game (3.73) when using the same metric. But, the slippage was not nearly enough to ruin ABC's night, as even the 8 o'clock 'NBA Countdown' (0.97) was head and shoulders above the rest. On Fox, 'MasterChef' (0.39, -0.01) and 'Gordon Ramsay's Food Stars' (0.28, -0.01) each shed a hundredth but remained above their premieres from two weeks prior. On the CW, 'Nancy Drew' (0.09, +0.04) grew by four-hundredths from last week's middling return. Though 'Drew' enjoyed a sizable surge, 'Riverdale' (0.06, -0.02) slipped in the 9 p.m. hour. CBS had solid repeats of 'The Price Is Right at Night' (0.38) and 'Let's Make a Deal Primetime' (0.29). The 'CSI Vegas' encore (0.16) trailed those two in the 10 p.m. hour. NBC had reruns of 'Night Court' (0.26/0.19), 'Chicago Fire' (0.20), and 'Chicago PD' (0.17).

Finals Update: '2023 NBA Finals Game 3' (+1.0), 'MasterChef' (+0.1), and the 8 PM repeat of 'Night Court' (+0.1) adjusted up. 'NBA Countdown' (-0.2) adjusted down.
