Diane Sawyer's interview with kidnap victim Jaycee Dugard on ABC's "Primetime" received the Sunday night's biggest ratings, while NBC's "The Marriage Ref" plummeted to a new low, according to preliminary numbers.
"Primetime" at 9 p.m. received a 3.7 rating/10 share in the adults 18-49 demographic and 14.7 million total viewers. The remainder of ABC's primetime roster consisted of repeats.
NBC's night was made up of repeats with the exception of the Seinfeld-produced "Ref" at 10, which tumbled 33 percent from last week to become the show's lowest rated original episode ever, receiving a 0.8/2 in the demo and 2 million total viewers.
CBS' sole original programming of the evening was the "Big Brother" premiere in its regular time period (following Thursday's season premiere) at 8, which was up 4 percent over last season's time-period premiere with a 2.5/8 in the demo and 7.1 million total viewers.
Fox ran repeats throughout the evening.
