Final Broadcast Ratings: September 7, 2016

NBC took the Wednesday night ratings, winning every hour of the night. The night kicked off with a political forum of the two presidential candidates, which drew the night's most viewers, with 14.7 million. The NBC news special topped BIG BROTHER in all three demographic categories. AMERICA'S GOT TALENT mostly held its lead in, dropping between 10 and 20 percent. A special RUNNING WILD with BEAR GRYLLS topped its weaker competition, but did lose half of the total audience of its lead in and over 35% of the A18-49 demographic viewers.

For FOX, Wednesday is the only night of the week with decent ratings, as it takes second place on the night. MASTERCHEF averaged 4.4 million viewers and a 1.4 rating in Adults 18-49.

Thanks to a two hour season/series finale of AMERICAN GOTHIC almost pushed CBS down to a 4th place finish, below an all-encore ABC line up. AMERICAN GOTHIC was the lowest rated program on the big 4 networks, in the three demo categories and tied the CW in the A18-34 demo.
