Ratings: Big Brother Leads Demo, Code Black Has Night's Biggest Audience

Big Brother Ratings Premiere

CBS’ Big Brother opened Season 20 on Wednesday night with 5.3 million total viewers and a 1.5 demo rating (per finals), down 10 and 12 percent year over year to mark new premiere lows — yet still topping the night in the demo.

Leading out of that, the terminal Code Black (5.7 mil/0.8) rose a tenth in the demo while commanding Wednesday’s largest audience. Huh.


FOX | MasterChef (3.7 mil/1.1) and the newly renewed 24 Hours to Hell and Back (3.5 mil/1.1) each ticked up a tenth in the demo.

NBC | Reverie (1.8 mil/0.4) was steady in Week 5.
