Ratings: Fox Scores Key Demo Win With NFL Preseason Game

CBS’s ”Big Brother“ is Sunday’s highest-rated program

The NFL preseason game between the Tennessee Titans and the St. Louis Rams delivered a ratings victory for Fox on Sunday night, while CBS’ “Big Brother” was the top-rated program for the evening, according to preliminary numbers.

While Fox’s numbers for the night are approximate due to the nature of live sports, the network currently holds a solid first place in the key 18-49 demographic with a 1.4 rating/5 share, and second place in total viewers with 4.34 million. The preseason game kicked off at 8 p.m., preceded by repeats of “Bob’s Burgers” starting at 7.

CBS’ ratings are also approximate due to preseason football, but currently the network shares second place in the demo with ABC with a 1.1/4 and is first in total viewers with 5.9 million.

“60 Minutes” at 7 p.m. ET drew a 1.1/4 with 8.3 million total viewers, while “Big Brother” in the following hour posted a 2.2/8 with 6.9 million total viewers. The remainder of the network’s primetime slate was repeats.

ABC was third in total viewers, averaging 4.32 million for the night. Following an “America’s Funniest Home Videos” repeat at 7 p.m., “Bachelor in Paradise” at 8 drew a 1.3/4 with 4.2 million total viewers, while the Robin Roberts special “Katrina: 10 Years After the Storm” at 10 had a 0.6/2 with 3.8 million total viewers, the largest non-sports audience for the network in that time slot this summer.

NBC opted for repeats Sunday night, drawing fourth place in ratings and total viewers with a 0.7/2 and 2.5 million.

Univision was fifth in ratings and total viewers with a 0.5/2 and 1.4 million, while The CW shared sixth place in the demo with Telemundo, with each network scoring a 0.4 rating for the night. The CW averaged 1.4 million total viewers, compared to 1 million for Telemundo.
