In the latest TV show ratings, CBS’ Big Brother with Season 24’s first Thursday outing delivered 3.1 million total viewers and a 0.6 rating, easily leading a quiet night in the demo. (Read recap.)
Over on ABC, Press Your Luck (3.5 mil/0.4) was steady vs. its season opener and commanded Thursday’s largest audience. The Kelly Ripa-hosted Generation Gap (3.5 mil/0.4) dipped a bit in Week 2, while The Fatal Flaw: The True Crime Show Guaranteed to Put You to Sleep (2 mil/0.2) was steady.
The Live+Same Day numbers reported in our ratings column do not reflect a show’s overall performance, given the increased use of delayed playback via DVR and streaming platforms, plus out-of-home viewing. These numbers (Nielsen fast nationals, unless denoted as finals) instead aim to simply illustrate trends or superlatives. Big Brother is not associated or affiliated with the Estate of George Orwell and is not based on the novel “1984.”
