Head to head in the night’s 9 o’clock hour, “MasterChef” averaged a 2.2 rating/6 share in adults 18-49 and 5.4 million viewers overall, slightly ahead of the demo delivery for “America’s Got Talent” (2.1/6 in 18-49, 9.3 million viewers overall), which saw a noticeable decline from last week’s 2.5 rating.”MasterChef” comfortably led “Talent,” and all other programs on the night, in adults 18-34 (1.9/6).

Despite the season low in 18-49, “America’s Got Talent” remained Wednesday’s No. 1 program in both adults 25-54 (2.7/7) and total viewers.

Capping Wednesday for NBC was drama “Camp” (1.0/3 in 18-49, 3.8 million viewers overall), which hit a low and was surpassed in 18-49 by a repeat of CBS drama “CSI” (1.1/3 in 18-49, 6.1 million viewers overall).

Elsewhere, CBS’ “Big Brother” (2.0/7 in 18-49, 6.0 million viewers overall) dropped about 10% week to week but led its hour as usual opposite repeats of “America’s Got Talent” on NBC (1.3/5 in 18-49, 5.8 million viewers overall) and “MasterChef” on Fox (1.0/4 in 18-49, 2.7 million viewers overall).
