Ratings: The Briefcase Opens Strong, While MasterChef Surges

CBS Briefcase Ratings

Inside The Briefcase, CBS found a premiere audience of 6.8 million viewers along with a 1.3 demo rating. The ostensibly heart-tugging reality noob thus was Wednesday’s most watched program, while placing second in the demo to Fox’s MasterChef.

TVLine readers gave The Briefcase an average grade of “D.”


FOX | The aforementioned MasterChef (4.6 mil/1.5) surged 46 and 25 percent week-to-week. The Bullseye premiere though retained just 3.4 mil/1.1.

ABC | The penultimate 500 Questions (4.9 mil/1.0) slipped two tenths week-to-week. Celebrity Wife Swap (3.4 mil/1.1) ticked up 6 percent and a tenth from its season opener.

NBC | The iHeart Country thingy did 4.2 mil and a 1.0.

    I have very mixed feelings about that comma in the headline.

    Hahahaha, The Briefcase was so contrived it was borderline insulting. If there had been anything else on I wouldn’t have watched. Next week I’ll grab a book :-)

    Really hope that next week The Briefcase goes down week after week. The premise of the show is downright horrible when one family decides whether they should keep the $100,000 or give it all up to another family.

    The Briefcase and Masterchef adjusted up.
