Note: Comparisons to the year-ago evening were not available.

Ratings Breakdown:
There was noting unusual to report on this quiet summer Sunday. ABC’s “Celebrity Family Feud,” hosted by Steve Harvey, led the 8 p.m. hour, with a 4.0 rating/7 share in households. Competing “Big Brother” on CBS (#2: 3.6/ 6), however, is a lock for dominance in adults 18-49 (and all the key young adult demo groups). Note to Sam: There was no need to make unnecessary enemies this week, particularly when your power app could mean the return of the evicted housemate.

Next on ABC was “The 100,000 Pyramid,” hosted by Michael Strahan, at a dominant 3.3/ 6 in the 9 p.m. hour, followed by “To Tell the Truth,” hosted by Anthony Anderson, first at a 2.5/ 5 at 10 p.m. Light-hearted “To Tell the Truth” is a fun way to end the TV viewing week.

Also original last night was Nat Geo’s “One Strange Rock” at a 0.7/ 1 on Fox at 7 p.m., another burn-off episode of canceled Fox sitcom “Ghosted” (#4: 0.9/ 2 at 9:30 p.m.), and NBC crime solver “Shades of Blue” (#2: 2.2/ 4 at 10 p.m.). The remainder of the evening was all repeats.
