College Football Ratings

Ratings: Big Brother Ties Season Low Opposite ABC's College Football

ABC’s coverage of the Notre Dame/Texas college football match-up on Sunday averaged 9.8 million total viewers and a 2.9 demo rating, easily topping the night on both counts.

Opening ABC’s night, a Fall Preview special did 6 mil and a 1.6.

Over on CBS, Big Brother (5.3 mil/1.3) dropped 22 and 38 percent week-to-week. tying its demo low for this cycle on any night. The yet-to-be-renewed BrainDead (2.3 mil/0.3) however held steady.

NBC’s coverage of a NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race did 4.3 mil and a 0.8.

Next Sunday, NBC Sunday Night Football premieres and BrainDead wraps its freshman run.

    Big Brother was a total filler episode. 3/4 of the show watching that stupid egg challenge? It deserved its low ratings.

    Loved this Brain Dead episode. The bugs are back and Gustaf is back. I don’t have high hopes, but I do have some hope it’ll get renewed. I really enjoy it. How does it do in DRV numbers? Maybe it needs to be on a specialty network. If it does end, I hope it gets a proper ending.
