Wednesday TV Ratings: A Strong Showing for Keegan-Michael Key’s ‘Game On!’
As we head into the long July 4th holiday weekend, viewership is gradually getting even quieter than usual, but some original programs still had a chance to shine on Wednesday, July 1.
Take CBS’s Game On!, for example. The Keegan-Michael Key sports-based competition series — featuring WWE’s Becky Lynch and actor Joel McHale — won Wednesday’s primetime broadcast schedule in the key 18-49 demographic and even built on last week’s series low in total viewers (2.9 million) with 3.3 million viewers.
Except for the CW’s low-rated airings of The 100and British import, Bulletproof, the rest of the night was filled with reruns. That said, as has been the case all summer, the One Chicagoshows — Chicago Med, Chicago Fireand Chicago P.D. — all took their leads in their respective time slots in total viewers. Their key demo numbers were all at a 0.4 rating.
Due to the holiday weekend, the ratings posts will be taking a few days off but will resume on Monday, July 6. Have a safe and happy holiday.
