Wednesday TV Ratings 7/26/23: Big Brother 25th Anniversary Special Abysmal, Women’s World Cup Rises from Previous USA Game, The Wonder Years Sets New Low (UPDATED)

Ratings Analysis: The 'Big Brother: 25th Anniversary Celebration' special (0.17) was completely rejected by CBS viewers and dropped significantly from the rerun of '60 Minutes' (0.24) that led into it. In the 10 p.m. hour, the 'CSI Vegas' encore (0.10) was over a full tenth lower than last week. On Fox, the USA v. Netherlands match-up propelled the 'FIFA Women's World Cup' (1.95) to new heights. This number was almost four-tenths higher than Friday's 'USA v. Vietnam' game (1.56). ABC's 'The Wonder Years' (0.17, -0.06) slipped to a new low after taking two weeks off. 'Judge Steve Harvey' (0.25, -0.02) also lost some ground. Reruns of 'Abbott Elementary' (0.15) and 'America's Funniest Home Videos' (0.11) followed the originals. NBC's 'LA Fire & Rescue' (0.22, -0.01) shed a hundredth and led into encores of 'Chicago Fire' (0.14) and 'Chicago PD' (0.18). 'Nancy Drew' (0.03, -0.01) lost a hundredth on the CW, but 'Riverdale' (0.02, +0.01) picked one up after falling to that dreadful 0.01 a week prior.

Finals Update: 'FIFA Women's World Cup 2023: USA v. Netherlands' (+0.5), 'The Wonder Years' (+0.1), and 'Big Brother: 25th Anniversary Celebration' (+0.1) adjusted up. 'FIFA Women's World Cup Live' (-0.2) adjusted down.
