Fox won another June Wednesday in adults 18-49 on the strength of Gordon Ramsay’s MasterChef (1.5), which held steady for a third straight week to rank again as the top program of the night. Also even with last Wednesday was MasterChef lead-out Bullseye (1.1).
The two other originals last night were both down to log new lows. That included veteran Celebrity Wife Swap (0.8), which tumbled -33% with Love Boat alumnas Charo and Jill Whelan after an uptick last Wednesday. CBS’ rookie The Briefcase (0.8) slipped a tenth in the 18-49 demo while posting an uptick (+7%) in total viewers. On the strength of its drama repeats, CBS won the night in total viewers.
Worth noting is the great repeatability of NBC/Esquire’s American Ninja Warrior. A two-hour rerun of the obstacle course reality competition last night drew a 1.2 in 18-49, the second highest demo number of the night, lifting NBC to a close No.2 in the demo.
