Preliminary Ratings: Wednesday 08/31/2016

August closed with another NBC victory and the season finale of the summer drama, THE NIGHT SHIFT. The third year series pulled in 5.8 million viewers and a 1.2 rating in Adults 18-49, on par with the season two finale, which aired on May 18, 2015. Earlier on NBC, AMERICA'S GOT TALENT dominated with 10.8 million viewers and a robust 2.9 rating in Adults 25-54. That is mostly flat to last Wednesday's episode.

Back-to-back original episodes of MASTERCHEF pushed FOX into second place on the night. The Gordon Ramsey series averaged 4.2 million viewers and over a 1.3 rating in Adults 18-49. It was #2 at both 8 PM and 9 PM.

CBS topped ABC, thanks to the solid outing by BIG BROTHER. Without that summer CBS staple, ABC would have beaten CBS on the night.
