In the latest TV ratings, Fox’s broadcast of Major League Baseball’s “Field of Dreams” game — featuring a Harry Caray hologram lookalike — averaged 2.8 million total viewers and a 0.5 demo rating (per fast nationals), down sharply from last year‘s inaugural and well-watched made-in-Iowa outing.
CBS’ Big Brother eviction episode (3.7 mil/0.5) — pending adjustment due to a bit of NFL preemption — was steady week-to-week and led Thursday in both measures.
Over on ABC, Press Your Luck (3.6 mil/0.5), Generation Gap (3 mil/0.5) and The Con (2.2 mil/0.3) were all steady.
The CW premiere of Bump drew 450K and a 0.1 , while The Great Chocolate Showdown‘s premiere did 460K/0.1.
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.”
