Wednesday Ratings: Solid ‘Kung Fu’ on The CW in Week 2; Most ‘Tough As Nails” Season-Ender on CBS

Wednesday 4/13/21 Preliminary Primetime Ratings 
Total Viewers:
Fox: 3.74 million, NBC: 3.58, ABC: 2.92, CBS: 2.26, CW: 1.00
Adults 18-49:
Fox: 0.9 rating/6 share, NBC: 0.5/ 3, ABC: 0.4/ 3, CBS: 0.3/ 2, CW: 0.2/ 1
Despite airing encore telecasts of its “Chicago” drama franchise, NBC still led the evening in total viewers (based on the fast affiliate results). Fox’s win in adults 18-49, of course, came from “The Masked Singer”, which led the evening with a 1.1 rating/8 share (and a dominant 4.78 million viewers at 8 p.m. ET). But lead-out competition series “Game of Talents” lost noticeable steam with 2.69 million viewers (#3) and a 0.6/ 4 (#1) at 9 p.m.
In season-finale news, just renewed CBS competition series “Tough As Nails” came in at 3.21 million viewers (#3) and a 0.5/ 3 (#1t) in adults 18-49 at 8 p.m. The remainder of the evening on the Eye net (two episodes of recently introduced sitcom “The United States of Al and crime solver “S.W.A.T.”) were repeats.
In week two news, the reboot of “Kung Fu” is a “hit” by The CW’s standards with 1.37 million viewers (#5) and a 0.2/ 1 in adults 18-49 (#5). And that gave a bit of a boost to sophomore lead-out “Nancy Drew” at 9 p.m. (Viewers: #5, 627,000; A18-49: #5, 0.1/ 1).
Also in week two was ABC comedy “Home Economics” at an uneventful 2.88 million viewers (#4) and a 0.4/ 3 in the demo (#1t) at 8:30 p.m. Lead-in “The Goldbergs” was stronger at 3.23 million viewers (#4) and a 0.6/ 2 (#2) in adults 18-49.
Elsewhere, ABC’s “The Conners” was the most-watched of its Wednesday night sitcom block with 3.78 million viewers (#1) and a 0.6/ 4 in adults 18-49 (#2) in the 9 p.m. ET half-hour. But freshman lead-out “Call Your Mother” dipped to 2.55 million viewers (#2) and a 0.3/ 2 (#3) in the demo at 9:30 p.m. At 10 p.m. on the alphabet net, new time period occupant “A Million Little Things” did not benefit with a depressed 2.52 million viewers (#2) and a 0.3/ 2 (#2) in adults 18-49.
