CBS’ Big Brother drew 5.4 million total viewers to this season’s first live eviction show, while scoring a 1.6 demo rating.
Those numbers topped a quiet Independence Day Eve on both counts, yet marked drops of 17 and 27 percent week-to-week and hit an all-time demo for the series for a consecutive night.
Reminder: Starting next week, the live evictions will air Thursdays at 9/8c.
Leading out of BB, The American Baking Competition retained 4.7 mil and a 1.2, shedding a few viewers week-to-week but steady in the demo.
The only other original fare was on ABC, where Family Tools‘ penultimate episode (2.4 mil/0.6) was down 14 percent and a tenth (to another series low), while The Lookout (3.1 mil/0.7) dropped 14 percent and two tenths.
