Sunday night belonged to Fox with the Women’s World Cup Final breaking U.S. soccer ratings records. Beyond the pitch, ABC’s “Celebrity Family Feud” was last night’s most-watched program, despite a 21 percent decline in the key 18-49 demographic.
While the ABC game show bested “Big Brother” in total viewers at 9 p.m., the demo rating order was reversed for the hour. Like “Celebrity Family Feud,” “Big Brother” and “Battle Bots” also slipped by double digits in the main demo.
