Big Brother Season 19

Ratings: Big Brother Rises in Week 2

CBS’ Big Brother this Wednesday drew 6.1 million total viewers and a 1.8 rating, ticking up from its week-ago opener and marking its best numbers thus far of the week-old season. It also dominated the night in the demo.

Over on NBC, Little Big Shots: Forever Young (6.6 mil/1.0) commanded the night’s largest audience while ticking up a tenth in the demo. The recently-cancelled Carmichael Show (3.5 mil/0.7) was flat.

The night’s only other fresh broadcast fare, ABC’s To Tell the Truth, held steady with 3.1 mil and a 0.6.
