Big Brother 18 Ratings

Ratings: Big Brother Hits Season Highs, Night Shift Returns Up 22 Percent

CBS’ Big Brother this Wednesday drew 6.5 million total viewers and a 2.1 demo rating (per finals), up 10 and 17 percent week-to-week to hit highs for any night this cycle and tying America’s Got Talent for the nightly demo win.

Closing the Eye’s night, American Gothic (2.6 mil/0.5) hit a 6-week high in audience while rising a tenth in the demo.

Over on NBC, the aforementioned AGT returned from its Olympics break to 10.7 mil and a 2.1, up 12 and 17 percent from its most recent Wednesday outing. The Night Shift returned to 5.5 mil/1.1, up 10 and 22 percent to mark its best numbers since July 13.

Over on The CW, Penn & Teller (1.5 mil/0.4) ticked up, while Whose Line (1.3 mil/0.4) was flat…. Fox’s MasterChef (4.1 mil/1.3) was up a smidgen from its previous fresh outing.

    That veto comp on Big Brother was hilarious but these people need to stop throwing comps. It’s become to convenient now rather than having an actual strategy and playing the game. Loved The Night Shift.

    Good episode of BB last night where (gasp) moves were made. Corey… what can I say? He either knows he is safe and the show is just making it look closer than it is… or he is a total moron. Maybe it’s both? If the house is smart they will kick Victor out because Corey probably won’t win any memory comps… although he could secretly be smart and is just throwing everyone off as a strategy… nah.

    Kudos to Paul for actually trying.

    I still can’t believe Michelle won America’s favorite last week. I refuse to believe that wasn’t rigged somehow. She is the WORST and most catty player in the history of the game. She is so threatened by other girls it’s not even funny.

      I’m guessing your not a live feed watcher. You get a completely different perspective on these people. Natalie is just as catty and mean as Michelle, she’s getting a great edit. And it’s actually not America’s favorite that gets the care package. A lot of the voting (on twitter at least) is based on who fans want out rather than who they really like. And they hope that by giving the CP to a certain person they will target said person.
