Wednesday Final Nationals: ‘The Sinner’ Scores Top USA Network Series Premiere in Two Years

MLS All-Star Game on Univision and FS1 Earns Best-Ever Combined Audience

Big Brother 19” once again provided CBS Wednesday night victory among total viewers (4.6 million), adults 18-49 (1.0 rating/4 share), adults 18-34 (0.6/3) and adults 25-54 (1.2/4).

With 1.63 million viewers and an adults 18-49 rating of 0.42, the limited series “The Sinner” starring Jessica Biel and Bill Pullman debuted to USA Network’s best series premiere figures since “Mr. Robot” on June 24, 2015 (1.75 million viewers, 0.46 adults 18-49 rating). “The Sinner” also improved upon its “Suits” lead-in.

The “2017 MLS All-Star Game” featuring the MLS All-Stars versus Real Madrid drew the best combined viewership ever with 1.9 million from Univision and Univision Deportes (0.8 household rating, 1.48 million) and FS1 (0.25 household rating, 420,000). This surpassed the previous record mark of 1.45 million viewers set in 2011 by ESPN2 and Telefutura (now known as Unimas).
