Thursday TV Ratings 9/14/23: Buddy Games Struggles in Premiere, Generation Gap Slides, The Challenge: USA Also Down (UPDATED)

Ratings Analysis: Though 'Big Brother' (0.64, +0.03) was a bit higher than it was last Thursday, new  series 'Buddy Games' (0.29) got off to a rocky start on CBS. The reality-competition series retained less than half of its 'Big Brother' lead-in and was only a hundredth above the 10 p.m. installment of 'The Challenge: USA' (0.28, -0.04). On ABC, 'Generation Gap' (0.29, -0.02) dropped by two-hundredths for its first original episode in three weeks. At 9, 'The Prank Panel' (0.21, -0.07) crashed to a new series low after being off the air for nearly a month. A rerun of 'Shark Tank' (0.18) occupied the 10 p.m. time slot. 'Fight to Survive' (0.04, 0.00) and 'FBoy Island' (0.03, 0.00) were both steady on the CW. Fox had little luck with 'MLB: Regional Coverage' (0.27). NBC had repeats of 'Password' (0.19) and 'America's Got Talent' (0.17). 

Finals Update: 'MLB: Regional Coverage' (-0.1) adjusted down.
