Ratings for CBS’ The World’s Best came back down to Earth Wednesday night after Sunday’s post-Super Bowl showcase for its premiere hour.

Airing from 7 to 9 p.m., the James Corden-hosted “reality competition” series limped in with 154,645 D-FW viewers to run well behind the latest episode of Fox’s The Masked Singer, which lured 281,172 voyeurs in the 8 p.m. hour. Ricki Lake was the latest to reveal herself during the show’s continued downshift to C- and D-listers after an opening night splurge with the Pittsburgh Steelers’ embattled star receiver, Antonio Brown.

World’s Best best also was outdrawn by NBC’s 7 to 9 p.m. tandem of Chicago Med (253,055 viewers) and Chicago Fire (238,996).

Masked Singer likewise logged Wednesday night’s high in the advertiser-prized 18-to-49-year-old demographic, with 90,576 viewers. World’s Best took the runner-up spot with 42,269 viewers in this realm, edging Med and Fire in the 7 to 9 p.m. slot.

At 9 p.m., Fox4’s local newscast won in both ratings measurements.

Here are the local news derby results for the fifth weekday of the February “sweeps” ratings period.

Fox4 topped the 10 p.m. and 6 a.m. competitions in both total viewers and with 25-to-54-year-olds (main advertiser target audience for news programming).

NBC5 ran the table at 5 p.m. while the 6 p.m. winners were WFAA8 in total viewers and Fox4 with 25-to-54-year-olds.
