TV Ratings 8/9/17: Carmichael Series Finale In Line With Average, Story of Diana Solid (UPDATED)

It was a busy Wednesday night, with a few specials airing in place of the typical repeats and a series finale. The Carmichael Show ended its three season run with a 0.8 and a 0.7, right in line with what it's been doing for most of this season. Its lead-in was much bigger than usual, a two-hour AGT recap special, which was the #2 program on last night. The only thing to beat it was Big Brother, which saw its first preliminary 2.0 of the season. It lead into Salvation, which while still being laughably low-rated can at least brag that it's the #1 non-BB CBS Summer show this week. After it was a Criminal Minds repeat at 0.5, or one tenth higher than the original Salvation that aired in the slot last week. Fox's MasterChef lost two tenths, but that still doesn't excuse The F Word slipping to a 0.5. The F Word is a true disaster for Fox, but it could be worse. It could be American Grit. ABC had obviously preempted comedy repeats at 8 (both at 0.8), and a Lady Di special at 9. The special came in at 1.0, well above anything that's aired on Wednesdays this Summer. It's likely inflated as well, but even if it comes down a tenth it's still a nice result that will be on par with ABC's Diana special from May. The CW had Arrow and Supernatural repeats at 0.2 and 0.3.

Finals Update: Big Brother (-0.1) America's Got Talent (-0.1), The Story of Diana (-0.3), Salvation (-0.1), both Carmichael Show episodes (-0.1 each) and repeats of the Goldbergs (-0.2), Speechless (-0.3) and Supernatural (-0.1) all adjusted down.
