Wednesday TV Ratings 8/30/23: Big Brother and America’s Got Talent Decline, Superfan and MasterChef Rise (UPDATED)

Ratings Analysis: CBS's 'Big Brother' (0.60, -0.02) dropped by two-hundredths when compared to last Wednesday's installment, but it still had no problem topping the night in the Adults 18-49 demographic. In the 9 p.m. hour, 'Superfan' (0.18, +0.04) finally recovered after declining for the past two weeks. The 10 p.m. 'So Help Me Todd' rerun (0.13) was a hundredth higher than the week prior. 'America's Got Talent' (0.45, -0.05) lost a few ticks on NBC and led into repeats of 'Night Court' (0.22/0.16) and 'Chicago PD' (0.15). Fox's 'MasterChef' (0.35, +0.01) grew by a hundredth. ABC had a mini-marathon of 'The Conners' (0.24/0.20/0.18/0.15) that decreased in size as the evening went on. The 10 p.m. time slot was occupied by an encore of 'The Rookie' (0.13). The CW was not too far behind 'Rookie' with reruns of 'Whose Line Is It Anyway?' (0.07/0.09) and 'Penn & Teller: Fool Us' (0.09). 

Finals Update: 'Big Brother' (+0.1) adjusted up.
