ABC’s winter “Match Game” premiered on Wednesday, helping the Disney-owned broadcaster preserve a primetime win in the key 18-49 demographic.

ABC was first in ratings with a 1.7 rating/6 share in the advertiser-coveted 18-49 demographic and second in total viewers with an average of 5.94 million, according to preliminary numbers. “The Goldbergs” at 8 p.m. earned a 1.9/7 and 6.7 million viewers. At 8:30, “Speechless” posted a 1.7/6 and 5.7 million viewers. “Modern Family” at 9 scored a 2.3/8 and 7.5 million viewers. At 9:30, “Black-ish” put up a 1.7/6 and 5.9 million viewers. The “Match Game” season premiere at 10 had a 1.4/5 and 5.1 million viewers. A second episode at 10:30 got a 1.3/5 and 4.7 million viewers.
