Thursday TV Ratings 11/2/23: Buddy Games Slips for Finale, Big Brother and The Golden Bachelor Rise, SEAL Team Abysmal in CBS Return (UPDATED)

Ratings Analysis: 'Buddy Games' (0.26, -0.03) slipped for its season finale on CBS, but 'Big Brother' (0.51, +0.03) was unfazed and actually grew by a few ticks. In the 10 p.m. time slot, 'SEAL Team' (0.17) reappeared on the network for the first time since leaving to air on Paramount Plus. But, it was clear by the low ratings that few were interested in these reheated leftovers. 'The Golden Bachelor' (0.58, +0.06) was up significantly on ABC, while 'Bachelor in Paradise' (0.32, 0.00) held even. On Fox, 'LEGO Masters' (0.29, +0.06) soared to a new season high. 'Hell's Kitchen' (0.38, 0.00) was steady at its previously-set high in the 8 p.m. time slot. 'Transplant' (0.16, -0.06) slipped on NBC and was once more the weak link in a lineup with reruns of 'Law & Order' (0.19) and 'Dateline' (0.19). 'Son of a Critch' (0.04, -0.01) and 'Everyone Else Burns' (0.01, -0.01) were down on the CW. 'Run the Burbs' (0.03, 0.00) was stable at 8:30, while 'Children Ruin Everything' (0.03, +0.01) grew by a hundredth at 9. 

Finals Update: 'The Golden Bachelor' (+0.1) and 'Hell's Kitchen' (+0.1) adjusted up. Repeats of 'Dateline NBC' (-0.1) and 'SEAL Team' (-0.1) adjusted down.
