Now that NFL-related and other preemptions — plus a Rookie Blue time slot switcherooni in some areas — have been taken into account, divided and subtracted, and the “1” has been carried, here is how Thursday’s Live+SD ratings shook out:
CBS | Big Brother drew 6.5 million total viewers and a 2.3 demo rating, adding a few eyeballs plus a tenth in the demo week-to-week. BB netted the night’s best demo rating, while a Big Bang rerun cashed in with the largest audience: 8.3 million.
ABC | The Quest (2.2 mil/0.6) was down 21 and 14 percent from its premiere, Rookie Blue (4.6 mil/0.8) fell two tenths and NY Med (5 mil/0.9) ticked down one tenth.
