Ratings: Big Brother Ties Thursday High

CBS’ Big Brother this Thursday drew 6.1 million total viewers and a 1.9 rating, up 13 percent and a tenth week-to-week to veritably tie and outright match its Thursday highs for this cycle, and claim the nightly demo win.

Opening the Eye’s night, a Big Bang rerun drew Thursday’s largest audience: 7.5 million.

Over on NBC, NFL preseason football delivered 5.6 mil and a 1.6.

Elsewhere, ABC’s BattleBots (3.5 mil/0.8) ticked up, while The CW’s Beauty and the Beast (710K/0.2) added some eyeballs while once again clutching onto its series-low rating.
