CBS coasted to a ratings win in broadcast prime Sunday night, based on Nielsen overnights for the key 18-49 demo, as much of the competition consisted of repeat programming.
TVbytheNumbers.com reports that “Big Brother” slipped one-tenth from a week ago in viewers 18-49 to a 2.1 average rating, easily the highest-rated program of the night on the broadcast nets. Leading out from “Brother,” CBS’s “Unforgettable” equaled its 1.0 average from last week, with “Reckless” also holding steady, recording a 0.6.
ABC’s two-hour “Wipeout” fell three-tenths from a week ago to a series-low 0.8 average in 18-49, with “Rising Star” also hitting a series low — a 0.9 average, down one-tenth from what was already a series low last week.
NBC and Fox aired all repeats.
For prime time overall, CBS’s 1.2 average was the best among the broadcast nets, followed by Fox (1.0 average), Univision (0.8) and ABC and NBC (both 0.7). CBS was well ahead of the pack in total viewers with 6.2 million, followed by ABC (3.3 million), Fox and NBC (both with 2.24 million) and Univision (2.1 million).
