CBS just can’t shake those pesky ABC game shows on Sunday nights — even with the fairest of them all, “Celebrity Family Feud,” in reruns. ABC finished first again in the key ratings demographic, though “Big Brother” made it close.

The Leslie Moonves-led network (for now, at least) was No. 1 in primetime in terms of total viewers.

ABC was first in ratings with a 0.8 rating/4 share in the advertiser-coveted 18-49 demographic and second in total viewers with an average of 4.3 million, according to preliminary numbers. Following reruns, “The $100,000 Pyramid” at 9 p.m. had a 0.8/3 and 4.5 million viewers. At 10, “To Tell the Truth” got a 0.7/3 and 3.7 million viewers.

CBS was second in ratings with a 0.7/4 and first in viewers with 4.5 million. Between repeats, “Big Brother” at 8 posted a 1.4/7 and 5.4 million viewers.

NBC was third in ratings with a 0.5/3 and in viewers with 3.5 million. Following reruns, “Shades of Blue” received a 0.5/2 and 3 million viewers.

Fox was fourth in ratings with a 0.4/2 and in viewers with 1.1 million, airing all repeats.

Univision and Telemundo tied for fifth in ratings, both with a 0.3. Univision had a 2 share, Telemundo got a 1. Univision was fifth in total viewers with 1.2 million, Telemundo was sixth with 789,000.

The CW does not currently nationally program Sunday nights.
