The series premiere of NBC’s The Philanthropist got a big boost from its 9-10 p.m. lead-in, America’s Got Talent, which was Wednesday’s most-watched show. By the end of the 10 p.m. hour, though, The Philanthropist had lost 17 percent of its audience and ended up tying with a CSI: NY rerun in terms of average viewership. ABC’s Wipeout edged out Fox’s SYTYCD at 8 p.m., though the two shows earned identical ratings for Adults 18-49.
