Thursday TV Ratings 10/12/23: Transplant Has Weak Return, Big Brother and Hell’s Kitchen Slip, The Golden Bachelor Leads (UPDATED)

Ratings Analysis: Medical drama 'Transplant' (0.19) made its return on NBC by losing to both the 'Law & Order: SVU' rerun (0.22) that led into it and the repeat of 'Dateline' (0.21) that aired after it. Though this rating is a good bit higher than its July 2022 finale (0.13), it is far from a solid number. On CBS, 'Buddy Games' (0.26, -0.06) and 'Big Brother' (0.47, -0.10) completely collapsed, but 'The Challenge: USA' (0.24, 0.00) tied its week-ago installment. 'Hell's Kitchen' (0.32, -0.05) lost some ground on Fox, but 'Lego Masters' (0.22, +0.01) actually picked up a hundredth. On ABC, 'The Golden Bachelor' (0.48, -0.09) took a bigger hit in week three than it did in week two but was still the night's highest-rated program. 'Bachelor in Paradise' (0.34, -0.02) shed two-hundredths in the 9 p.m. time slot. The CW aired encores of 'Son of a Critch' (0.04/0.03), 'Run the Burbs' (0.04), and 'Children Ruin Everything' (0.03).

Finals Update: 'Bachelor in Paradise' (-0.1) and 'Transplant' (-0.1) adjusted down, as did repeats of 'Law & Order: SVU' (-0.1) and 'Dateline NBC' (-0.1).
