Steady ‘MasterChef’ Tops Sleepy June Wednesday In Ratings

It was a June gloom Wednesday last night with a few unscripted originals and a ton of scripted repeats, none coming close to cracking the 2 demo rating threshold and only two programs, CBS drama repeats, drawing more than 5 million viewers. Fox’s MasterChef (1.5 in adults 18-49, even with last week) led the way as the highest-rated program in the demo. The other Wednesday summer reality series also were steady, all hovering over the 1 rating mark: MasterChef companion Bullseye (1.0) was down a tenth from last week, ABC’s Celebrity Wife Swap (1.1) was up a tenth, and CBS’ The Briefcase (0.9) was even. Fox easily won the night in 18-49 (1.3) while CBS was tops in viewers (5.3 million) on the strength of its Criminal Minds and CSI: Cyber reruns.
