Ratings: Latest ‘Big Brother’ Elimination Episode Grows in Another CBS Win

Telemundo ties ABC in key 18-49 demographic

Perhaps CBS should just air “Big Brother” five nights a week (well, six, if we’re counting both Sundays and Fridays).

The so-called “Tiffany Network” topped the Nielsen charts last night thanks to its hit summer reality competition again — just like it had the prior night, the  prior week, and so many other evenings this month.

CBS was first in ratings with a 1.1 rating/5 share in the advertiser-coveted 18-49 demographic and in total viewers with an average of 4.9 million, according to preliminary numbers. Following reruns, “Big Brother” at 9 p.m. landed a 1.9/8 and 6.3 million viewers. At 10, “Zoo” received a 0.6/2 and 2.7 million viewers.

NBC was second in ratings with a 0.9/4 and in viewers with 4.4 million. “Hollywood Game Night” at 8 had a 0.9/4 and 3.9 million viewers. At 9, “The Wall” got a 1.0/4 and 4.8 million viewers. “The Night Shift” at 10 received a 0.8/3 and 4.5 million viewers.

Fox was third in ratings with a 0.7/3 and fourth in viewers with 2.41 million. “Beat Shazam” at 8 had a 0.8/4 and 2.8 million viewers. At 9, “Love Connection” got a 0.6/3 and 2 million viewers.

ABC and Telemundo tied for fourth in ratings, both with a 0.6/3. ABC was third in total viewers with 2.42 million, Telemundo was fifth with 1.6 million.

For ABC, “Boy Band” at 8 settled for a 0.5/3 and 2.4 million viewers. At 9, “Battle of the Network Stars” managed a 0.6/3 at 2.5 million viewers. “The Gong Show” at 10 finished primetime to a 0.6/2 and 2.3 million viewers.

Univision was sixth in ratings with a 0.5/2 and in viewers with 1.5 million.

The CW was seventh in ratings with a 0.3/1 and in viewers with 1.3 million. “Penn & Teller: Fool Us” at 8 had a 0.3/2 and 1.6 million viewers. At 9, “Hooten & the Lady” got a 0.2/1 and 948,000 viewers.
