Ratings: Big Brother Hits Season Highs, Game Night Dips, Rookie Blue Ticks Up

Ratings Big Brother Season HighWhat’s the saying — “The only thing worse than being talked about is….”?

CBS’ buzzy-for-the-wrong-reasons Big Brother on Thursday night hit season highs in both total viewers (with 6.7 million) and in the coveted 18-49 demo (scoring a 2.3) — rising 8 percent and two tenths from last week’s live eviction show.

Opening CBS’ night, a Big Bang repeat coped the night’s largest audience (with 7.1 million).

    I think Rookie Blue was just a matter of people not knowing if it was on or not during all the interruptions of its airings. Last week I totally forgot it was on! It didn’t give us a chance to get into the habit of it before it was off for 3 weeks in a row. This week…..not a problem. :)

      I think by having America vote for the MVP every week is helping BB’s ratings. As a viewer, you feel more involved with the show and the outcome. This was a brilliant idea of BB. I don’t know why they didn’t do it before. They should do it again next year.

    Such a horrible season. Who wants another season of Rachel…ugh! The MVP is the dumbest thing they could ever do. I am so over Helens fake a** crying and Elissas omg america…I can’t believe its. Just give her the money & get it over with. I am officially big bothered out. Thanks CBS for wrecking it.

      They set it up so they knew Rachel’s sister would be MVP every week and win in the end. This way they can have a competition between Rachel and her sister next year. All fixed. I never liked Rachel and ditto to her sister.
