Ratings: Big Brother Returns Up, Taxi Brooklyn Fares OK, SYTYCD Dips

Big Brother Premiere Ratings

CBS’ Big Brother still has some ratings muscle, returning on Wednesday night to 6.6 million total viewers and a 2.3 rating — adding a few eyeballs plus a tenth in the demo versus its year-ago Aaryn Nation premiere and leading the night on both counts.

Wednesday’s other premiere, NBC’s Taxi Brooklyn, drew 5.4 mil and a 1.0 leading out of an AGT rerun (6.2 mil/1.3), topping the 10 o’clock hour though falling shy of Camp‘s debut rating in the time slot last July (5.2 mil/1.5).
