Sunday Overnights: ‘Big Brother’ Leads CBS to Victory

But Sunday 9 p.m. ET 'Candy Crush' Remains a Bust

SUNDAY 7/30/17

What follows are the metered market household results by half-hour for Sunday, July 23, 2017:

Household Rating/Share
CBS: 3.0/ 6, ABC: 2.8/ 5, NBC: 1.7/ 3, Fox: 0.7/ 1

Percent Change from the Year-Ago Evening:
NBC: -15, CBS: -27, ABC and Fox: -30 each

Ratings Breakdown:
An encore telecast of “60 Minutes” (4.6 rating/9 share at 7 p.m.) on CBS topped this final Sunday in the household overnights, besting competing “Sunday Night with Megyn Kelly” (#3: 2.5/ 5) by a hefty 44 percent. Logically, NBC would have been better off positioning Kelly’s newsmagazine elsewhere.

Perennial Eye net summer favorite “Big Brother” scored a dominant 4.1/ 7 in the 8 p.m. hour, which will easily top the night in adults 18-49 (and all the key young adult demographics). But recently introduced lead-out game show “Candy Crush” continues to get crushed at a 1.4/ 2 (#2) at 9 p.m. Comparably, that was a decline of 65 percent from the 8:30 p.m. portion of “Big Brother” (4.0/ 7).

Also original last night were ABC game shows “Steve Harvey’s Funderdome” (#1: 2.6/ 4) and “The $100,000 Pyramind” (#1: 2.8/ 5) from 9-11 p.m., and “American Grit” on Fox (#4: 0.7/ 1 at 9 p.m.). All three were at typical household overnight levels
