Wednesday TV Ratings 8/9/23: Superfan Flatlines in Series Premiere, Big Brother Ticks Down, Food Stars and The Wonder Years Rise (UPDATED)

Ratings Analysis: CBS's 'Superfan' (0.22) proved to be a complete dud on premiere night, retaining just 35% of its 'Big Brother' lead-in (0.63, -0.02 from Sunday). In the 10 p.m. hour, a rerun of 'So Help Me Todd' (0.14) placed third in its time slot. On Fox, 'MasterChef' (0.34, 0.00) held even and led into a rising 'Food Stars' (0.22, +0.03). NBC's 'LA Fire & Rescue' (0.25, +0.04) climbed higher for its season finale and led into repeats of 'Chicago Fire' (0.21) and 'Chicago PD' (0.19). ABC sitcom 'The Wonder Years' (0.23, +0.02) grew by two-hundredths when compared to last week's original. The alphabet network also reran 'Judge Steve Harvey' (0.28), 'Abbott Elementary' (0.16), and 'America's Funniest Home Videos' (0.15). Mystery drama 'Nancy Drew' (0.03, -0.01) lost a hundredth on the CW, but 'Riverdale' (0.04, +0.01) grew by one.
