Big Brother Season 18 Ratings

Ratings: Big Brother Hits Sunday Highs

CBS’ Big Brother this Sunday drew 6.8 million total viewers and a 2.0 demo rating, up 15 percent and a tenth week-to-week to hit and tie Sunday highs for this cycle. In fact, that total audience marks a Season 18 high for any night.

Leading out of that, BrainDead (2.3 mil/0.3) added a handful of eyeballs while flat in the demo.

Over on ABC, Celebrity Family Feud (5.7 mil/1.0) slipped two tenths in the demo to match its season low, while $100,000 Pyramid (5.6 mil/1.0) and Match Game (4.8 mil/0.9) were both steady.

NBC’s coverage of preseason NFL football did 5.6 mil and a 1.7.

Cable ratings (e.g. the MTV VMAs, The Night Of finale, The Strain premiere) famously come in much, much later and as merited are reported under separate cover.
