Ratings: Big Bro Tops Night, Rising Star Hits Low, Unforgettable Ticks Up

Big Brother Ratings

CBS’ Big Brother this Sunday drew 6.4 million total viewers and a 2.1 rating, dipping a tenth in the demo week-to-week but still dominating the night in that measure.

Leading out of BB, Unforgettable (6.4 mil/1.0) and Reckless (4.1 mil/0.6) each ticked up a tenth, with the latter ending up in a three-way tie at 10 pm with Castle and Chicago P.D. reruns.

Over on ABC, Wipeout (3.9 mil/1.0) dropped 19 and 29 percent, while Rising Star (4.1 mil/1.0) fell 15 and 23 percent (hitting a series low in the demo).

Cable premiere ratings (e.g. The Lottery), as always and forever come in much, much later, and as needed will be reported under separate cover.

    Wow, Rising Star lets it’s most talented singer go due to the judges and it hits a series low the next week. I’m shocked. :(

    Why never nothing about Halt and Catch Fire? Not just the ratings… but anything?

    Cody. King of the Abs. I think he is a bag part of the ratings doing so well for Big Brother this year. Just sayin.

  5. Dean says:

    Castle and CPD were really low especially for repeats. Not surprise given the 10 hour competition.

    Can we talk about Jocasta in that final minute? I don’t know what she was doing, maybe speaking in tongues or something, but it freaked me out.like she was possessed or something.

      Yeah, that sh*t was weird I guess she was happy/knew that her and Amber was about to win the game. Zach is ANNOYING, Victoria NEEDS to go home, and Cody is freakin CUTE!

  7. Chris says:

    Matt, why do you always go with preliminary ratings, but not final ratings, when reporting ratings for TV shows on both broadcast & cable shows?

    • Matt Webb Mitovich says:

      Because life is too short. Though I have been known to update the daily ratings post in the evening with finals, in cases where it has a marked effect on somethingoranother (or impacts my headline). Or at least in the fall, I often (though not always) do. Exclusive example: http://tvline.com/2014/07/10/extant-premiere-ratings/

    • Moment says:

      Other websites do the same, for the most part there won’t be a huge adjustment up or down for any show really, perhaps the odd half million, or tenth up or down(18-49). It’s a great way of informing people how their show has done.
