Fast Demo 2017 Aug 09.WED


ABC:  There’s been a continuing supply of Princess Diana specials all year to commemorate the 20th anniversary of her death, and the 1.0 for the first 2 hours of THE STORY OF DIANA proves that audience interest is far from exhausted.  The night began with 0.8/0.8 sitcom reruns.

CBS:  BIG BROTHER rose 0.1 from last Wednesday to 2.0, and SALVATION was up 0.1 from last week’s 2-hour outing to 0.6.  A 0.5 rerun of CRIMINAL MINDS finished the night.

NBC:  After 1.4 for an AMERICA’S GOT TALENT clip show, the final 2 episodes of THE CARMICHAEL SHOW were at 0.8/0.7, concluding a steady summer (last week’s single new episode was at 0.7).  

FOX:  MASTERCHEF fell 0.2 to 0.9, and THE F WORD was down 0.1 to 0.5.

CW:  Reruns at 0.2/0.3.
